Montblanc and The Goodwood Festival of Speed are two historic entities preceded by ample (and well-earned) amounts of prestige, which makes them fitting bedfellows. Accordingly, Montblanc is now celebrating its second year as The Official Timing Partner for the legendary race. To make the occasion all the more special, the luxury brand is releasing an extraordinary new watch collection, the TimeWalker Limited Edition, which pays direct tribute to Minerva’s (now the Montblanc Manufacturer) 160-year heritage.
Taking place over four days in England, The Goodwood Festival of Speed puts some of the world’s best drivers behind the respective wheels of the world’s rarest race cars. The action climaxes with a 1.16-mile timed Hillclimb Shootout. Not only will Montblanc be keeping time, but they’ll be giving a Montblanc TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph “Cappuccino” Edition to the winner.
Naturally, the TimeWalker Collection is brimming with inspiration. Expect watches that are as sporty as they are sophisticated, and fashioned after some of Minerva’s greatest hits. Under the skin is Montblanc Manufacture Calibre MB 25.10 mechanical movement with automatic winding, chronograph, and date. Hovering over the dial is scratch-resistant, domed sapphire and antireflective coating crystal. In addition to traditional watches, the range also features a TimeWalker Rally Timer, which resurrects a classic Minerva design.
Every piece in the collection was crafted with the utmost care, and subject to 500 hours of testing. In other words, these babies are built to last and dressed to impress. This is one stylish way to celebrate motorsport, indeed.
