Timeless Luxury Watches prides itself in selling only the finest watches. Unfortunately, due to frequent handling of a watch in our inventory over the period of a year or more, watches almost always suffer minor wear. Examples of this wear are cosmetic flaws, like hairline scratches, and do not affect timekeeping or reliability. When Timeless has a specific watch that is older than a year with minor visible wear, we classify it as “shopworn.”
Shopworn watches are available at significant savings over new versions of a watch and have the full manufacturer’s warranty. Shopworn watches are never pre-owned. However, shopworn watches do not qualify for the Timeless extended 5 year warranty, and shopworn watches are never eligible for return or exchange, at any time or for any reason.
Inspired by the simplicity and clarity of vintage automotive speedometers, this timepiece’s dial is focused on essential time indication via the strong contrast between “Cappuccino” beige and brown, inspired by the historical “tropical” dials found on vintage timepieces. Large Arabic numerals and the Super-LumiNova® coated hands and minuterie provide perfect readability, with the iconic central seconds hand first catching the eye with its red color and prominent Minerva arrow at the tip. Clearly reminiscent of early 20th century Minerva stopwatches, the scale stretches from 05 to 60, which underlines the racing lineage of the timepiece. The date indication is located close to the 15-minute numeral at 3 o’clock. The shiny, black ceramic bezel with hour numerals and indexes can be turned unidirectionally to indicate a second time zone. For a better grip, it boasts a knurled finish on the side, inspired by the petrol tank caps of vintage race cars. For utmost reliability and performance, the 41 mm satin-finish stainless steel case with semi-skeletonized horns is water-resistant to 100 meters and has been rigorously tested by the Montblanc Laboratory Test 500. The timepiece comes with a new vintage brown perforated Sfumato calfskin strap that looks like the driving gloves that racing drivers wore in the past.
