One of the first luxury Maisons to have ventured into the field of connected devices, Montblanc introduces the TimeWalker Urban Speed

Combining traditional Swiss watchmaking with cutting-edge technology, the TimeWalker Urban Speed UTC e-Strap watch features a watchstrap that connects to the owner's smartphone paired with a fine timepiece driven by an automatic calibre.  Unlike the typical smartwatch, it is a mechanical timepiece enhanced with digital functionalities—the result of innovative brilliance.

The suave NATO-type strap is made of high performance Montblanc Extreme leather, and integrated with the impressive technology that connects to selected Android phones as well as iPhone 4s and subsequent models. Built with a 128 x 36 OLED display, the e-Strap provides intuitive touch controls and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, giving it a hefty five-day lifetime. Perfect for the modern man on-the-go, the e-Strap integrates an activity tracker, a Find Me function for smartphone and watch, notifications for incoming communications, and remote controls for the phone's camera and music player.

Durable and resistant to abrasion, the TimeWalker UTC 42mm stainless steel case is reinforced by the use of a deep black surface treatment known as Diamond-Like Carbon. The dark, contemporary aesthetic enhances its dynamic design characterised by skeletised horns and a thin bezel. Powered by the mechanical self-winding calibre MB 24.05, the TimeWalker Urban UTC e-Strap is a truly effortless blend of modernity and tradition.
