The new Montblanc TimeWalker Voyager UTC automatic watch nicely refreshes the familiar high-tech design of the timekeeper’s laconic, yet very informative dial making it one of the most visually attractive dual-timers on the market.
Compared to the previous model, the new Montblanc TimeWalker Voyager UTC features an even more readable dial that, thanks to ditching the seconds marks on the chapter ring and because of introduction of slightly thinner Arabic numerals, looks a lot cleaner and less cluttered than a normal GMT timepiece.
Although with their recent models Montblanc tried to experiment with vertical slits in the trapezoidal hour and minute hands, the new watch returns to its basics again featuring the traditional thin strips of SuperLuminova decorating the finely finished pointers. Well, the secondary hour hand with a nice orange tip, which is color-coordinated with stitching of its textile strap, partly compensates for the lack of skeletonization.
As usual, the 24-hour second time zone scale, which is engraved on the flange of the titanium bezel, features an easy to understand day/night indication and its slightly unbalanced (the “day” is supposed to start at 7 hours and end at 19:00 on this scale) look give this beautiful beast an interesting twist.
The stainless steel body of the TimeWalker Voyager UTC measures standard 42 millimeters in diameter making the timepiece very versatile and suitable for almost any kind of clothing including formal attire.
According to the brand’s press release, the whole assembly is powered by the same ETA-based MB 4810/405 caliber that powers their GMT watches (including the classy Montblanc Star World-Time GMT that was first introduced two years ago) for years and offers 42 hours of power reserve, automatic winding and tons of reliability.
