New ad­di­tion to Mont­blanc’s Time­walker col­lec­tion.

The up­dated Time­Walker

Chrono­graph comes with an all new ‘panda’ tri-reg­is­ter de­sign and an in­house Mont­blanc move­ment.

When Mont­blanc an­nounced the Time­Walker col­lec­tion last year, mod­elled af­ter vin­tage race­cars, we were quite gut­ted that it didn’t make a chrono­graph with the tri-reg­is­ter po­si­tioned in the classic style. This year, the brand has made things right with the new Time­Walker Man­u­fac­ture Chrono­graph and, yes, as the name sug­gests, it is pow­ered by a new in­house move­ment.

Not only does the new chrono­graph come with a classic tri-reg­is­ter de­sign, it is also built with a ‘panda’ dial. This style of chrono­graph first made its appearance around the 1960s and 70s, and has since be­come an icon, ap­pre­ci­ated for both its unique aes­thetic and great read­abil­ity. As a nod to Min­erva’s her­itage and legacy within Mont­blanc, the red chrono­graph sec­onds hand is also in­spired by the Min­erva ar­row.

The move­ment in question is the MB 25.10 that fea­tures tra­di­tional fin­ish­ing tech­niques such as Côtes de Genève and cir­cu­lar grain­ing, all vis­i­ble through the case­back. The chrono­graph is equipped with a tra­di­tional col­umn wheel and hor­i­zon­tal cou­plings, and has a bar­rel ca­pa­ble of 46 hours of power re­serve.

The good news is, the re­tail price for this chrono­graph with an in-house move­ment is ap­prox­i­mately EUR4,990, which is great value. The bad news, how­ever, is that Mont­blanc only starts de­liv­er­ing the watches to retailers in Septem­ber this year.
