Montblanc TimeWalker World-Time Hemispheres

If your passion is traveling or traveling is part of your profession, these two watches could be good companions on your wrist. Globetrotters please click here…

With the Montblanc TimeWalker World-Time Hemispheres you have the whole world on the wrist. The TimeWalker Hemispheres are a very special kind of world-time watches, which simultaneously show the different times in all 24 of the world’s time zones. The watches hands show the local time of the zone where the wearer is currently sojourning, while the flange around the dial bears the names of 24 cities, each of which represents one of the 24 time zones into which our planet is divided. A 24-hour disc indicating the hours at the locations positioned radially opposite the disc’s markings on the flange turns at the center of the dial. Presto! The wearer can instantly see which hour has chimed on clocks in all of the world’s time zones.

This spectacle is packed into a stainless steel TimeWalker case which measures 42 mm in diameter and has a very narrow bezel, thus leaving ample room for large and readily legible indicators: a time-zone ring with the 24 place names, an hour circle with the TimeWalker’s typical relief numerals and indices, a 24-hour disc in the center (where it turns clockwise in the one model and anticlockwise in the other) and a window for the date at the “6”. To preclude potential confusion, the northern model and southern variant each has its own color scheme. The Northern Hemisphere watch bears a silvery grey dial and is affixed to a sporty black leather strap. The wristwatch for the Southern Hemisphere has a dark anthracite-colored dial and a stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp.

The Montblanc TimeWalker Voyager UTC  invites you to a voyage through Time. The classical design of the TimeWalker Voyager UTC shows the time in a second time zone. The 42-mm-diameter stainless steel case with a narrow stainless steel or satin-finished titanium bezel leaves plenty of room for a simple and tidy dial, the design of which is entirely subordinated to its function. The broad flange or réhaut around the dial bears the 24-hour scale for a freely selectable second time zone; pale- and dark-colored zones on the scale enable it to simultaneously serve as a day/night indicator. The red tip of an extra-long skeletonized hour-hand sweeps along this scale to show the time in the currently selected second zone. The smaller hour hand indicates the local time, i.e. the hour in the zone where the wearer is presently sojourning. The minute hand and second-hand are valid for both time zones. When the crown is withdrawn to its first extracted position, the hand for the second time zone can be reset in hourly increments. This is an ideally useful function for a banker or businessman who always wants to keep his eye on the time where his most important business associate is currently located.

  • I’ve seen “globes” appear on dials from Bremont, Brietling, and now Montblanc. I can’t say I really like the trend.

    That being said, I like the skeletonized gmt hand on the Voyager UTC.
