New Release: Two Montblanc watches for Goodwood Festival of Speed

by Deployant News Team on July 17, 2018

Montblanc celebrates the second year as the Official Timing Partner of the Goodwood Festival of Speed and releases two new TimeWalker Limited Edition watches inspired by the Minerva’s 160 year history. The new watches are the TimeWalker Chronograph and TimeWalker Automatic Date.

 

 

The estate of Goodwood was transformed into the Festival of Speed from July 12 to 15. Considered as one of the greatest festivals of car culture in the world today and an important fixture on the British social calendar, motor racing enthusiasts were entertained by some of the world’s most accomplished racing drivers behind the wheels of some of today’s rarest and most spectacular machinery.

The festival was founded in June 1993, and the founder, the Duke of Richmond (formerly Lord March) presented 25 of its most memorable moments through an exhibition of cars and drivers.

Montblanc lends its timekeeping expertise to the numerous races during the event. The culmination of the Festival of Speed is the Hillclimb Shootout. And for the second year running Montblanc sponsors the winning prize – this year, the new The Montblanc TimeWalker Manufacture Chronograph “Cappuccino” edition.

 

The Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak  which won the Goodwood Festival’s Hillclimb Shootout: driven by Romain Dumas. The four-wheel drive Volkswagen I.D R Pikes Peak hillclimber is an electric car, the first to claim the prize at a record time of 43.86sec. Pic from Car and Bike.
