Avid followers of Montblanc’s works of horology artwork will know that this isn’t precisely new to its assortment (it was unveiled in 2011 in celebration of the 190th anniversary of the invention of the chronograph), however its beautiful aesthetics and technical capabilities make it engaging sufficient to warrant this put up.
I’m speaking in regards to the Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph, or what I prefer to name, Black Beauty. Its 43 mm diameter case is fabricated from a titanium alloy that’s 1.5 instances more durable than stainless-steel, making it extremely protected in opposition to shocks. Add to that an especially scratch-resistant DLC coating in black and also you’ve just about received a rock stable but surprisingly light-weight timepiece in your wrist.
Anti-reflective sapphire crystal on each back and front means you possibly can feast your eyes not solely on its eye-catching dials but additionally on its finely skeletonised winding rotor additionally in black. The icing on the cake? The black alligator leather-based wristband rounding issues off to perfection.
Now that we all know how lovely it’s, let’s take a peek into what makes it, effectively, tick. Montblanc created the mechanical chronograph Calibre MB LL100, a self-winding motion in an elite class of its personal. Firstly, the double barrel capacitor implies that the watch has a extremely secure 72-hour energy reserve, which implies you don’t must put on it for nearly three days and it’ll nonetheless tick.
And then there’s the FlyBack operate. In a nutshell, once you press a selected button whereas the chronograph is working, each the central chronograph hand and the 60-minute counter instantly ‘fly back’ to their zero positions in tandem and immediately begins a brand new measuring interval. The speedy motion is so fascinating to observe that one has to restrain oneself from urgent the button repeatedly for no good purpose, of which I’ve been responsible, in fact.
Did I point out that the TimeWalker TwinFly Black Titanium Chronograph is a restricted version piece, with solely 300 items obtainable worldwide? Head on all the way down to Montblanc’s flagship at Mandarin Gallery and take a look your self as a result of its magnificence and prowess is one which must be appreciated in individual.
