For the first time, Montblanc TimeWalker series watches are equipped with Montblanc’s exclusive patented external tourbillon, which continues the avant-garde modern urban style. This outstanding performance combines excellent time calibration components with a single-button chronograph function, incorporates a bold aesthetic design, and uses lightweight and highly durable materials to enhance the performance of Timewalker watches from the case to the movement.
The essence of Montblanc Timewalker series
With a large dial, a slim bezel, uniquely curved Arabic numerals, spear-shaped hands, and hollowed-out lugs, the Montblanc TimeWalker series creates a unique timepiece with a distinctive modern aesthetic. This model uses high-tech materials such as titanium, carbon fiber and diamond-like carbon (DLC), making the watch work both light and solid. The meticulously equipped automatic movement and practical complication highlight the outstanding performance and exquisite design of the Timewalker series.
In the Montblanc Timewalker Series Tourbillon Minute Chronograph Limited Edition (limited to 100 pieces), Montblanc introduced the external tourbillon function for the Timewalker Series for the first time. The patented external tourbillon device is a highlight of Montblanc’s classic timepiece series-the heritage of precision chronograph series, has been applied to a variety of designs in this series, but has never appeared in the Timewalker series before.
The one-minute external tourbillon was developed exclusively by the watchmakers at Montblanc Watchmaking. The English name ‘Exo’ is derived from Greek, meaning ‘outside’, and refers to the screw balance outside the tourbillon’s rotating frame. This original patented design can reduce the volume of the rotating frame, is not affected by the weight of the balance, and saves about 30% of energy than the ordinary tourbillon. The balance wheel is moved from the inside of the optional frame to the upper part of the frame, thereby reducing the effect of inertia and improving accuracy. Another practical feature of this structure is that it is equipped with a stop-second mechanism, which stops the screw balance through a miniature spring, allowing the wearer to set the second hand accurately. Not only that, this stop-second mechanism can directly stop the balance wheel instead of the tourbillon frame, preventing the ‘back swing’ phenomenon after the stop seconds, which affects the accuracy. The time setting function of this watch is also very practical. The wearer can move the crown to the second position and move it back and forth to adjust the hour hand in hours, which is fast and easy. Resetting the hour hand does not affect the minute and second hands, so you can always keep the time accurately. This function is also applicable to the date setting, even when traveling, you can easily set the time. To set the date display, the user can turn the hour clockwise or counterclockwise in 24-hour increments. When the pointer reaches the 24th hour, the date hand will move forward or backward by the corresponding number of days. If the crown is moved to the third position, you can see the red arrow pointer in the tourbillon frame for precise adjustment of the second hand.
This innovative tourbillon structure is integrated into Montblanc’s self-made chronograph movement. It perfectly integrates all elements of traditional chronograph with modern high-performance structure, including: single button, column wheel, effective and accurate vertical coupler, automatic winding And double barrels. At the same time, through the titanium caseback of the Timewalker series external tourbillon minute chronograph (limited to 100 pieces), you can also watch the exquisite skeletonized winding rotor of the movement, which is decorated with the skeletonized Montblanc logo and the outer plating With black rhodium coating, the atmosphere is more stable.
Fusion of high-tech materials
The 44 mm diameter case is ingeniously divided into three parts, which are made of titanium, carbon fiber and diamond-like carbon (DLC). The micro-machined titanium bezel is plated with a scratch-resistant black DLC coating, and the middleware is made of a unique carbon fiber structure, showing a special horizontal stripe pattern instead of the usual mesh pattern. The multi-layer carbon fiber coating is vertically covered, and is fused with artificial resin in a high pressure and high temperature environment of ten tons to form a dense carbon fiber block. The round case of the watch case is pressed into the carbon fiber layer vertically to form a tight and seamless ‘shell’, which is fastened on the titanium middle piece of the watch case. It is clamped and fixed by two hollow titanium brackets. The surface is precision-drawn. deal with. The light and sturdy case created in this way not only effectively protects the watch’s internal movement, but also reflects the unique style of the Timewalker series.
Delicate dial design
Montblanc TimeWalker Series Tourbillon Minute Chronograph (limited to 100 pieces) features a grained dial design that perfectly blends beauty, function and legibility. The eccentric black dial at 12 o’clock shows the time, with red and white Arabic Digital scale with SuperLumiNova® * luminous coating for easy reading at night. The patented external tourbillon is placed under the dial and there are two semi-circular chronograph dials with double hands: the seconds counter is at 8 o’clock and the minute counter is at 4 o’clock. The upper part of the dial is decorated with black horizontal stripes, and the lower part adopts a vertical matte effect, which highlights the unique visual effect of the patented external tourbillon device. The dial is also decorated with curved sapphire crystals, both sides are anti-reflective treatment, with vertical side wings, excellent readability and scratch resistance, outstanding performance.
The strap is made of classic black alligator leather with red stitching, further highlighting the urban style of this watch. All 100 watches in this limited series have passed 500 hours of rigorous real-life simulation tests and obtained the ‘Montblanc Lab 500 Hour Quality Test’ certification.
The Timewalker Series Tourbillon Minute Chronograph (limited to 100 pieces) is the pinnacle of the Montblanc Timewalker Series. From contemporary design to the use of high-performance movements and high-tech materials, this timepiece introduces the fine watchmaking tradition to future design styles.
