Montblanc Timewalker Chronovoyager UTC: A Chronograph For Travellers
“What time is it?” Montblanc’s TimerWalker Collection provides a visionary answer to this frequently asked question. The new Montblanc Chrono Voyager UTC with mechanical chronograph function and second time zone on a 24-hour scale is a sporty overall package in the dynamic look of the unmistakable TimeWalker design. Typically Montblanc TimeWalker.
With each watch in the Montblanc Time-Walker Collection, this naturally occurs in a look bearing all the characteristics of this series of models. The basic tenor is sportily dynamic and unmistakably masculine. The case’s bold diameter of 43 mm combines with a narrow bezel to provide ample room for an uncommonly big dial. This spaciousness naturally maximizes the comprehensibility and legibility of the eight different displays.
The dial boasts typical Arabic numerals and intuitive, unambiguously arranged displays for the hours, minutes and seconds in the wearer’s home zone, the date, and the elapsed time measured in hours, minutes and seconds to the nearest quarter of a second. This winning combination of aesthetics, functionality and user-friendliness expresses skilful design and transforms each Montblanc TimeWalker watch into a style icon for the wrist.
The Time in Zones
Unlike most wristwatches, the Montblanc TimeWalker Chrono Voyager UTC shows the time in two different time zones at a glance.
This function has become increasingly important along with the growth of mobility across the boundaries of time zones. The hour in the local time zone is indicated by a distinctively short hour-hand along the inner 12-hour scale, while the hour in the wearer’s home zone is shown by a long skeletonized hour-hand with a colored tip that points to a 24-hour scale along the fl ange that bears a day/night indication as well, splitting the fl ange in light grey for the day hours and in dark grey for the nighttime. The minute-hand and the continually running seconds on a subdial at the “9” are valid for both time zones because the majority of time zones differ from their neighbors by full-hour increments. The date display at “4 o’clock” is synchronized with the local time.
The Agony of Choice
All this comes packed in the unmistakable TimeWalker design, which is available in various versions with different wristbands and dials. A particularly sporty choice is the bimetallic variant, in which the middle part of the case is made of polished stainless steel and the bezel is crafted from satin finished titanium.
The other models are available in stainless steel with black, pale grey or anthracite-grey dials and pale or rose gold accents and hands. They’re attached to alligator-leather straps with pronged buckles or to linked steel bracelets with triply folding clasps.
