Limited Edition Watch Series:Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph 1000 Replica

Ever since Jérôme Lambert took the reins in 2013, Montblanc has really become a brand to replica watch whenever SIHH comes around. For the past few years, Montblanc focused on releasing bang-for-buck replica watches, and a fine example is the Montblanc Meisterstuck Heritage Perpetual Calendar which, at €10,000, was one of the most affordable perpetual calendar High Quality Swiss Fake Watch you could buy. That was followed by the Heritage Chronométrie Chronograph Quantième Annuel, a replica watch that combined the chronograph and annual calendar complications and could be had for €9,500 in steel. For 2017, the focus is on the racing-inspired TimeWalker collection, and while there’s no shortage of more simple and affordable pieces also introduced, the TimeWalker Chronograph 1000 Limited Edition 18 you see here is a bit more special.

The first thing you must know is that this is a marvelously complex Montblan men's replica watch, with a movement that has two separately functioning parts: one dedicated to timekeeping and a dedicated chronograph mechanism. The chronograph can measure events up to 1/1000th of a second, which is really impressive even if there have been replica watches before that can time events to even smaller intervals - such as the TAG Heuer Mikrogirder 2000. Holding two patents and 22 auxiliary patents, this is Montblanc tapping into its Minerva manufacture's capabilities and making sure the industry takes note. I'll also warn you now, it's expensive, well-into-six-figures expensive.


So, let's cut to the chase first. How do you read the chronograph? At 6 o’clock, you have a double counter that records the elapsed whole seconds (1 to 60) and the elapsed minutes of up to 15 minutes. The red central seconds hand shows time of up to 1/100th of a second. It moves around the dial once every second and the time can be read off the 1/100th-of-a-second scale on the flange. An interesting thing about it is that it actually moves in 1/100th-second increments, meaning to say that it jumps forward once every 1/100th of a second and makes 100 tiny jumps across the dial, as opposed to spinning freely.

To find out the time to 1/1000th of a second, you have to look at the red aperture at 12 o’clock. It doesn’t move when the chronograph is running, but instead, a pointer jumps into place to point out the 1/1000th-second measurement when the chronograph is stopped. When it is at rest, it points to “N,” which represents neutral - a nod to the replica watch’s racing inspiration. It is really easy to read.
