If you’re looking to step up your watch game this season, Montblanc are definitely releasing some impressive pieces that will help you stand out from the crowd. Emerging for Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), a conference that brings together a unique wide selection of timepieces from various watchmakers around the world, it’s definitely tough to pick a distinctive piece with so many options available.
Montblanc starts off with an update to their TimeWalker collection. Symbolizing the spirit of motor racing, the timepieces praise the instruments of glory used in these fields, bringing them forward for the modern man. With two watches for this collection releasing at SIHH, you’re definitely spoilt for choice.
First up is the Montblanc TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph, which utilises a unique tri-counter “panda” colourway reminiscent of the dashboards of classic racing cars. With a 42 mm satin-finished stainless steel case accompanied by a new fixed black bezel and a tachymeter scale featuring high-tech black ceramic for durability.
Following closely behind is the TimeWalker Rally Timer Chronograph Limited Edition 100. Inspired by the famous Minerva Rally Timer stopwatch it has a unique “reverse panda” aesthetic for its dial. The most unique feature of the piece’s 50 mm casing is the ability for it to be turned from 0 to 180 degrees (3 to 9 o’clock), ensuring maximum readability whilst driving.
The second Montblanc collection to get a nice couple of additions is Star Legacy. Again taking inspiration from the Minerva heritage, particularly their specialisation in gold pocket watches which were prominent for the unique creation of an easy-grip crown, the watches have a minimal clean look. The first new version in the collection is the Automatic Chronograph. Featuring redesigned black Arabic numerals on dial and a unique design that helps to aesthetically compliment the distinguished features that Minerva brought to the table. The result is a clean timepiece that adapts to any situation.
Last but not least is the Nicholas Rieussec Chronograph which is a reinterpretation of a 2008 release. With a distinctive face and newly designed round 44.8 mm featuring refined pebble effect, it’s a clean look that can be worn in a multitude of situations.
So what are you waiting for, go cop a unique timepiece today and bring your collection to the forefront.
