Recommended Posts

One of a handful of new models Montblanc recently previewed ahead of SIHH is a new downsized version of their standard TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph. Newly sized at 41mm, the brand already produces a 43mm version of this chronograph and a 41mm TimeWalker three-hander. This new sizing can be had in one of two dial layouts, silver-white sub-dials on a black dial or the inverse of black on silver.

Initial Thoughts
I mean, what's not to like about 41mm? While I prefer the 12-hour bezel of the 43mm version to the 41mm's ceramic tachymeter scale, the bezel speaks directly to the automotive design inspiration of the TimeWalker and I think the proportions and wrist presence of this decidedly modern chronograph are better executed at 41mm. Along with the smaller proportion, the case design has also been simplified, with smooth (non-skeletonized) lug profiles. 

Running a Swiss-sourced Sellita SW500, the new TimeWalker Automatic Chronograph 41mm carries a retail price of $3625 and the story here is the new sizing. The styling manages to capture an automotive aesthetic without feeling half-baked or goofy and 41mm is a very agreeable and versatile size for a sports watch. As sizing preferences ebb and flow, this Montblanc is just one of many brands have begun to offer comparatively smaller iterations of their core models.
