TIMEWALKER AUTOMATIC DATE LIMITED EDITION
RUNNING AFTER TIME
The German brand celebrated the 25th Goodwood Festival of Speed this summer with two Timewalkers in a warm, vintage style.
Do you enjoy speed, classic sports cars and elegance? Each year since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has been an unmissable event in the UK. Combining a garden party and a hill climb race, the event attracts fans from all over the world. Montblanc, the official timekeeper for the past two years, unveiled a limited-edition watch this year with colour codes ideally coordinated to the race atmosphere. The watchmakers have given one of its leading current models, the Timewalker Automatic Date Limited Edition, an attractive “cappuccino” beige dial, encircled by a chocolate-coloured minute track. With these attractions combined with a retro font, the three-hand watch conjures up a vintage sports atmosphere. An atmosphere boosted by the elegant perforated strap in vintage-effect Sfumato leather.
In the 41mm-wide steel case (waterproof down to 100m), the self-winding movement with 38 hours of power reserve drives the hour and minute hands, as well as the red central second hand with a Minerva arrow. As on the original model, the hours are placed on a unidirectional bezel machined in black ceramic. If you are travelling abroad, the bezel can be rotated to provide a second time zone. A date at 3 o’clock rounds off the time elements.
Montblanc has also released a limited edition of 1,500 pieces of the Timewalker Chronograph Automatic featuring the same design.
Price: 2,715 EUR (automatic) – 4,990 EUR (chronograph)
