In addition to the Bronze 1858 series previewed last month, Montblanc expanded its Time walker series in 2017. Here are highlights:
This 50mm titanium replica watch can be converted into a pocket watch or it can be used as a clock. But its main purpose was to be inspired by a Minmeta as an instrument panel timer inspired by those who made the Minerva in the 1930s. Chronograph at 30 o’clock position of the 30-minute timer and 6 o’clock position of the small stopwatch vertical alignment, reminiscent of the original Minerva pull timer. At the center, the red chronograph second hand along the tachometer scale which can be used to calculate speeds over the fixed distance. Open the bottom cover, the shape of the car barbecue, revealing the beautiful movement of the manual trauma single pump chronograph MB M16.29 Inspired by the original Minerva caliber 17.29 was developed in the 1930s. This modern version also features hand-made Geneva Geneva stripes, inner corners, round textures and beveled, minowa arrows, chronograph form “V” (patented shape in 1912) and large screws low shot ( 18,000 bph) balance.
The two chronographs are sporty 43mm steel dials with easy-to-read dials, sub-dials and pointers. Time walker Chronograph UTC provides date display, central hour and minute hand, small second hand at 9 o’clock, second time zone hand from center with 24 hour scale in unidirectional rotating bezel and third time zone indication through black ceramic bezel. The black dial features a contrast with silver and red elements as well as 3D counters, similar to the old car dashboard. The chronograph seconds are indicated by the iconic red central hand, the tip shape for the Minerva arrow. The second time zone is set by the crown, allowing quick adjustment of the time in increments per hour without affecting the minute function. The date is synchronized with the local time. The third time zone can be indicated by rotating the unidirectional bezel to the new time zone and referring to the position of the 24 hour pointer.
The Time walker Chronograph Automatic includes many features of the UTC model, but witout third time zone hand. In addition, this dial is black, with silver chapter ring and only marked as 12, 3, 6 and 9 baffles. Both chronographs have three different strap options: perforated leather, perforated rubber and a new performance metal bracelet with three links.
This simpler Time walker dial design is set in a 41mm steel case, slightly smaller than two new Time walker chronographs. It retains the same new Time walker unidirectional black border with high-tech black ceramic (used to track the second time zone, if needed), the date and the highly clear Arabic numerals. Like other people in the new collection, the second hand here is also highlighted by the tip of the Minerva arrow. The difference between the main dial is the use of the replica watches minute mark, which means recalling the early Minerva stopwatch dialing.
This new model uses two different balancing mechanisms. One shows the time in progress, and the other is dedicated to tracking timed events. Hours and minutes are set by a conventional large scale display set to 18,000 bph, but the chronograph is powered by the second small balance (seen at 10 o’clock) to oscillate at an alarming 360,000 bph (50 Hz). In addition, Montblanc replica also added a finer adjustment, equipped with a chronograph of the small balance wheel, two gossamer fixed on top of each other.
The chronograph function is powered by its own barrel and stores enough energy to measure up to 45 minutes. However, if the user intend to extend this duration, he or she can turn the crown counterclockwise even if the chronograph is running to add fresh energy to the barrel of the chronograph.. regular time shows the train from the second bucket to draw energy to ensure 100 hours of power reserve.
The double-balance technology that was first displayed on the Timewalker Chronograph 100 three years ago is a unique racing-style dial for this year (with the Montblanc Manufacture Calibre MB M66.26). The right side of the dial is powered by the old fuel gauge, while the black and red details and the second indication of the 1/1000 reminiscent of the early racing dashboard. roving the corners and borders to evoke the old gasket cover, the black crocodile leather strap on the red hole is a typical driving glove. In fact, at 12 o’clock the timer single pump tightly mirrors the early Minerva stopwatch. This 46.4mm case is made of titanium alloy and has a ceramic black bezel. Only Only eighteen will be made.
