As you might have noticed, this week HODINKEE is at the annual Copperstate 1000 vintage car rally in Arizona, and it seems like a great time to look at one of the most interesting new rally timers. The Montblanc Timewalker Rally Timer 100 is, as we noted when it was first announced, a modern re-interpretation of a vintage rally timer in the Minerva archives. Minerva is a famous name among vintage watch enthusiasts – the company was originally founded as H. C. Robert, in 1858, in Villeret, and “Minerva” started out as a sub-brand. Eventually, the company became Minerva SA, Villeret, in 1929, having gradually shifted from its beginnings as an établisseur (a company that buys and cases supplied movements) to a designer and manufacturer of movements in its own right.
