The silhouette is well known, however the colors chosen by the German brand to decorate this limited edition add an extra touch of charm.
As the official timekeeper of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which took place in England on July 4-7 this year, Montblanc launched a new limited edition to mark the occasion. Last year, this took the shape of a chronograph decorated with beige and chocolate brown shades for a statement vintage style. This year, the TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph Limited Edition 1500 dons a more understated color scheme to consolidate its contemporary identity: The anthracite gray counters are contained within a charcoal dial and this monochrome setting provides the background for the black luminescent rhodium-plated hour and minute hands. The hands used for the stopwatch and the small seconds are colored red. This contrast transforms the composition, as does the fixed black ceramic bezel equipped with a tachymeter scale. The sporty style of the timepiece is also accentuated by the finish of the 43 mm case. The distressed steel contributes to its remarkable personality.
The time information and short time measurement are regulated with precision by the MB 25.10 caliber (46-hour power reserve). Some of the components of this self-winding movement can be seen through the sapphire case back.
The 1500 pieces of the TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph come with a completely new and stylish strap in perforated black leather for an impeccable look.
