Hands-On With The Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph GreyTech (Live Photos & Pricing)

You're looking at the Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph GreyTech.  It was a watch that nobody saw coming at SIHH, and it's one that left a lot of us saying "hmm, that's not bad at all."  The monochromatic appearance of the watch is what brings you in, using a satinized and pearl-blasted titanium case and with grey cut away dial revealing seven time indications.  But, it's the in-house Montblanc MB LL100 chronograph caliber that makes a handsome watch, a watch worth owning.

This watch features a column-wheel and a low-wear disc-coupling that transfers energy from the fourth-wheel to the chronograph-wheel, and, becuase the movement has two barrels, there is a power reserve of 72 hours.  The movement is just great to look at, too, as it features a rhodium-plated dark grey chassis, which contrasts nicely with the golden wheels, blued screws and red jewels.

This movement (and watch) isn't just beautiful, it's incredibly functional.  It displays elapsed chronograph seconds, chronograph hours, a date disc, 24 hour second time zone, small running seconds, and elapsed chronograph minutes (on a centrally mounted hand a la the Lemania 5100).  Oh, and it's a fly-back chrono. 

The Montblanc TimeWalker TwinFly Chronograph GreyTech is sized at 43mm and will be a limited edition of 888 pieces.  Price will be $14,600 when it hits stores this fall.
