It was circa 2004 when I began wanting this generation of Montblanc Timewalker — which is around the time it first debuted. Designed for a contemporary working professional in one of the world’s major metropolitan cities, I just happened to be in grad school residing in San Francisco at the moment. Montblanc Replica Watches afterward was not really the Montblanc of today. Both then and now, the brand needed a dynamic portfolio of watches for a variety of functions, but visually speaking, the aesthetic was a bit more futuristic and contemporary compared with the heavy retro-vibe of those Montblanc 4810 Chronograph replica watch watches we see now.
The Timewalker Chronograph on this mention 101549 was a thing of beauty. In 43mm-wide, it had been roughly bowl-shaped with tasteful arching lug structures which were additionally skeletonized. To emphasize the skeletonization, the finishing inside of the lugs was satinized, which contrasts with the mirror polishing of the rest of the case. Note the black and white Montblanc mountaintop star logo inset into the crown.
Regardless of the aggressive appearances, this Timewalker is not a sports opinion — it’s just 30 metres of water resistance and comes on a leather strap (using a nice crocodile texture to it). The 43mm-wide case is also 14.5mm-thick, with an AR-coated domed sapphire crystal over the dial. Darkness seeing is not this otherwise very pretty watch’s forte, given the comparatively anemic quantity of luminant painted in thin strips on the hands and as small cubes on the outer periphery of the flow.
