AN Homage TO Minerva
During this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in southern England, Montblanc again set the pace – as official timekeeper for the car races. It was here that 180,000 aficionados of rare racing cars were given a presentation of the new ‘TimeWalker Collection’, featuring the ‘Manufacture Chronograph’, limited to 1,500 pieces, and the ‘Date Automatic’ model, limited to 500 pieces. The inspiration for these two wristwatches in brown and beige is the historic ‘Rally Timer’ by manufacturer Minerva. Since the 1930s, it has been the definition of precision timekeeping at the most prestigious sporting events.
