At SIHH 2017, Montblanc patched up its Montblanc TimeWalker Rally Timer Watch accumulation bigly, discharging numerous new models including chronographs and basic three-handers. For 2018, Montblanc is supporting the TimeWalker gathering with a few new models, two of which we are investigating here. In the first place, there’s the Montblanc TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph, which is controlled by an in-house chronograph development; and after that there’s the vintage-roused Montblanc TimeWalker Rally Timer Watch Chronograph Limited Edition 100, which is constrained to 100 pieces.
How about we start with the Montblanc TimeWalker Rally Timer Watch Manufacture Chronograph. One can think about this as a refreshed rendition of a year ago’s TimeWalker Chronograph Automatic. A year ago’s model was controlled by a development got from a Sellita SW500. The new TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph, then again, highlights Montblanc’s own in-house programmed chronograph development.
The TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph arrives in a 43mm wide glossy silk completed stainless steel case that is around 15mm thick and has an appraised water protection of 100m. The bezel, which has a tachymeter scale, is made of dark earthenware.
The panda-style dial is white with dark counters at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. At 3 o’clock you have the 30-minute counter, and at 9 o’clock you have the 12-hour counter, while the counter at 6 o’clock demonstrates the running seconds. A date window has been perfectly tucked in at around 4:30 and it has rhodium-plated dauphine hands loaded with Super-LumiNova. An imperative component is the red chronograph seconds hand that pays tribute to the Minerva bolt.
The development inside is the Montblanc make gauge MB 25.10. It is a self-winding chronograph development made out of 232 segments, and it utilizes a section wheel component with a flat grasp. It beats at 4Hz and has a power save of around 46 hours. The development is unmistakable through a sapphire show caseback with points of interest like Côtes de Genève, roundabout graining, blued screws, and a rotor made out of dark rhodium-plated tungsten.
The other new chronograph watch is the TimeWalker Rally Timer Chronograph Limited Edition 100. This is another variant of a year ago’s TimeWalker Rally Timer 100 watch that we saw hands-on here. This specific piece is enlivened by the Minerva Rally Timer from the ’60s and arrives in a 50mm wide titanium case that is intended to be transformable for use as a pocket watch, work area clock (it’s sufficiently enormous), or even an auto dashboard connection. The circle style calfskin tie can be effectively expelled like a NATO lash, and the hauls at that point overlay into the caseback. The case likewise can be turned between the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions to show signs of improvement seeing edge while, say, driving. The case has a knurled center area covered with dark DLC and silk completing on the best. The vast crown is situated at 12 o’clock in connection to the dial, and it is additionally made out of titanium.
The dial has a turn around panda arrangement where it is dark with white counters – a year ago’s model had a totally dark dial. There’s a 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock and a sub-dial that shows the running seconds at 6 o’clock. Like the prior TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph, the TimeWalker Rally Timer Chronograph Limited Edition 100 likewise includes a red chronograph seconds hand to reference the Minerva bolt.
The development is the Montblanc in-house MB M16.29, which is propelled by the first Minerva gauge 17.29 created in the 1930s.
