Montblanc TimeWalker UTC Chronograph

August 17, 2012

A watch that not just tells time but tells atomic time like time truly is. Sounds complicated? Montblanc says that it’s actually quite simple.

According to the master designers and craftsmen at Montblanc Montre SA in Le Locle, the birthplace of traditional Swiss watch-making, Universal Time Coordinated (UTC) is used in aviation and technological contexts precisely due to its unambiguous terminology. Officially introduced in 1972 and directly linked to TAI (International Atomic Time), UTC takes the influencing factors of the irregular rotation of the earth into consideration, hence stays close to real time.

Add that to an architectonic use of forms with the clarity of polished stainless steel and voila! Meet the TimeWalker UTC Chronograph, a proud addition to the luxurious Montblanc’s watch collection.

The initial hand-drawn sketch of the designer’s vision, already a minor work of art in itself, shows how each detail was minutely considered. From the dynamic silhouette and the skeletonised lugs to the 24-hour flange with day/night indication, Montblanc may just have created another timekeeping classic for the future.

Drop by the Montblanc flagship at Mandarin Gallery for your fix of this distinctive timepiece.
