Racing Spirit Sporty Montblanc Releases Two New Timewalker Series ‘reversing Panda’ Dial Clocks

Montblanc brings two new Timewalker series chronographs, with a ‘reversing panda’ dial to interpret classic aesthetics, strengthening its sporty style, retro style and racing spirit.

Racing spirit

   The Montblanc TimeWalker series fuses the spirit of motorsport, and the newly launched professional timepiece reproduces the glorious history of the timing device in a distinctive style.
   The new Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph draws inexhaustible inspiration from the legendary history of Minerva Watch Factory. Since 1858, this renowned watchmaking workshop has been known for creating high-quality timekeeping devices that accurately record short intervals. The famous ‘RallyTimer’ rally chronograph, designed to accurately record motorsports, is a perfect example of this long tradition. Over the years, with several patents in the field of precision timekeeping, Minerva Watch Factory has become an influential piece in the history of advanced watchmaking, and has made watchmaking legends with extraordinary craftsmanship.

   The Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph combines the legendary timepieces of the past with the spirit of racing, engraving the long tradition, superb craftsmanship and glory of motorsport at the Minerva Watch Factory.

‘Panda’ dial and ‘Reverse Panda’ dial

   The 1960s and 1970s was the golden age of motorsport. The black-and-white dial chronograph that came out during this period became a classic in the history of watchmaking under the names ‘Panda’ and ‘Reverse Panda’. The strong contrast between the background color of the main dial and the three small dials brings a clear reading function and ingenious aesthetic design, which is highly praised. The design of the dial is reminiscent of the dashboard setting of a classic racing car, and is one of the most attractive and recognizable dial designs today.

Two new Timewalker chronographs

   In 2019, Montblanc launched two new Timewalker series chronographs with ‘reversed panda’ aesthetic design, with two diameters of 41 mm and 43 mm.

   The 41 mm diameter case has a satin-polished surface and the lugs of the lugs are carved with smooth, architectural lines. The 43 mm diameter is semi-hollowed, reminiscent of a racing air intake.

   The fixed bezel of the new Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph is made of ceramic material and is engraved with a tachymeter scale, which shows the surging racing spirit.

   Both timepieces use the ‘reversed panda’ dial to distinguish the main dial from the chronograph in contrasting black and silvery white. The 41 mm chronograph dial is listed on the dial at six o’clock and twelve o’clock, and the 43 mm chronograph dial is listed on the three o’clock, six o’clock and nine o’clock ”Position, back to the traditional 3-6-9 chronograph position with classic design. The numbers and graduations of these two timepieces are coated with Super-LumiNova®, and the precise minute track at the edge of the dial is also coated with Super-LumiNova®. The 15-minute graduated ring is decorated with red marks for legibility. maximize.

   The new Montblanc TimeWalker series self-made automatic chronograph (43 mm) is equipped with Montblanc’s self-developed chronograph MB25.10 chronograph movement, decorated with classic delicate patterns, such as: Geneva ripples, pearl patterns and blue steel screws The new one-piece rotor made of rhodium-plated tungsten steel resembles a racing steering wheel. In addition, the self-made movement is equipped with a traditional column wheel, a horizontal clutch device, and a stop-second system to ensure accurate time setting.
