The new Montblanc TimeWalker collection combines the racing spirit with masculine energy and the style of motorsports’ golden age. The result is both vintage and contemporary, designed for modern drivers. It reinterprets the legendary threecounter ‘panda’ dial while associating it with a new self-winding Manufacture chronograph. Performance meets panache in the design of the 43mm satin-brushed stainless steel case evoking sleek car bodywork. The bezel is engraved with a black ceramic tachymeter scale. The lugs with their finely sculpted sides are half-openworked like air vents. Its MB 25.10 Montblanc Manufacture column-wheel chronograph movement is adorned with Côtes de Genève, circular graining, blued screws and a new black rhodium-plated tungsten rotor shaped like a steering wheel. Perfectly matching the panda dial, the watch is treated to a new perforated aged brown Sfumato calfskin strap, hand-made by the Montblanc Pelletteria leather workshops in Florence, an additional detail confirming Montblanc’s enduring attachment to the values of fine craftsmanship.
