If you’ve been paying attention of late, you’ve noticed that Montblanc has been busy at their atelier in Villeret whipping up some rather compelling timepieces. Notable among these is their new racing-inspired TimeWalker collection, which couples a sporty, yet versatile aesthetic with a ton of bang for the buck (and Swiss franc, and euro and and pound). Indeed, in today’s uncertain market, value is the new luxury, and Montblanc is bringing it with models like the TimeWalker UTC Chronograph and TimeWalker Date Automatic. Of course, for those with deeper pockets, the Minerva-powered limited edition Rally Timer and the near-psychotic Chronograph 1000 will fit the bill, provided that you can find one.
So, would you like to see them on your wrist, and not on the pages of a magazine or a computer screen? Yeah, we thought you might, and fortunately so did Montblanc, which is why the brand is about to embark on a whistle-stop tour of the US to “Bring SIHH to You”, and share their new collections with watch enthusiasts across the country. Lending a hand to the proceedings will be none other than – you guessed it – RedBar Group, which will be hosting events at Montblanc boutiques in Chicago, Aventura, New York, San Francisco and Houston. Other stops on the tour include McLean, VA, Orlando, FL and Orange County, CA.
McLean, VA – Tuesday, May 2nd
Chicago, IL – Friday, May 5th
New York, NY – Wednesday, May 10th
Aventura, FL – Tuesday, May 16th
Houston, TX – Thursday, May 18th
San Francisco, CA – Tuesday, May 23rd
Orlando, FL – Thursday, May 25th
Costa Mesa, CA – Tuesday, May 30th
To sweeten the deal a bit, yours truly will be on hand to meet with collectors and share stories from my years in the industry as a fellow collector, forum moderator, writer, and avowed David Hasseloff fan.
