Montblanc, a brand which has been making unbelievable strides in the world of haute horology throughout the past few years, unveils the new Montblanc TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept replica watch – which weighs in at 14.88 grams – or just about half an ounce. Dedicated to the brand’s ambassador Lin Dan, world-famous badminton champion who is the first and only player to have won all nine titles in the Super Grand Slam. The 33-year-old Lin Dan who is known by his fans as Super Dan, is also a two-time Olympic champion. He became a Montblanc Ambassador for Mainland China in 2014 and is the inspiration behind the new fashion watch.
The TimeWalker Pythagore Ultra-Light Concept fake watch is created using high technology, ultra-light materials and is regarded as one of the lightest weight mechanical watches of our time. Other brands, including Richard Mille and B.R.M offer ultra lightweight watches as well. Richard Mille has one that weighs in at 19 grams but also carries a lot more parts and offers more complex functions than the Montblanc – which is equipped with hours, minutes and small seconds, along with 50 hours of power reserve.
But, what makes this watch so peculiar – in addition to its featherweight – is the fact that it houses an all-new swiss made movement, the replica Montblanc Mechanical Caliber MB M62.48 – based on the famed Minerva Pythagore movement from 1943. The Minerva Manufacture (now owned by Montblanc) in Villeret has a long history of creating some of the most advanced and coveted watch movements. The Pythagore was one of those beloved watch calibers and was particularly known for its straight bridge shapes made according to Pythagoras’ Golden Ratio concept. The movement was made for nearly six decades before production stopped.
The return to this movement for the all-new watch made perfect sense – thoughit had to be totally redesigned in terms of materials and finish. It is wroted to keep the weight to a minimum, and its five bridges are made of titanium. In fact, the movement itself – consisting of 153 parts — weighs just 4.73 grams.
Even the anthracite-colored subdial, which is fixed directly to the mainplate, is made of anodized aluminum. A beautiful design detail: the engraving at 8:00 that depicts five stars to recall Lin’s five most important wins of the Badminton Grand Slam. The watch is completed with a mineral glass crystal and caseback for viewing the movement. Currently, montblanc replica watch has created just only one best replica watch– for Lin Dan — in time for the Olympics. It is the second watch they developed with him (the first was the TimeWalker 100 Special Edition unveiled last year) and they say that he collaborated on the project and gave his point of view and input what the unique timepiece should be like.
