Montandon & Co. “Windward”
IN THE SPIRIT OF SUPER-YACHTS
By combining specific elements of style and sophistication found on nowadays Super- Yachts together with the culture of Haute Horlogerie, the Windward line redefines the codes at the heart of the 21st century’s marine timekeeping.
Chosen as a flagship model for the brand’s launch, the Windward TMA01 V1 is the first model within the Windward collection. This line of exceptional timepieces was designed to be worn both on land or sea. Under all conditions it still retains the prime predicate “adventurer of the seas.”
The tight lines of the Windward TMA01 V1 cleverly conceal its resistance to the elements, and its elegant visual codes allow it to be worn befitting all times and occasions.
Every detail of the Windward TMA01 V1 timepiece refers to its sea faring credentials, such as its helm’s inspired crown, the pushers and their protectors evoking the superstructures of great modern yachts, the wind rose on the secondary crown, the starfish lying on one of the movement bridge or the asymmetrical hand outlines inspired by the shapes of sails. Every Windward TMA01 V1 represents the apex where the avant-garde and tradition simultaneously meet.
The case that houses the TMA01 V1 movement was also completely developed and manufactured in house. Fully conceived and designed in the spirit of the brand, it comprises a high degree of sophistication with over 35 components required to assemble it. From each of the uniquely shaped case screws that seal the anti-glare treated sapphire glass with the watch’s casing to its special crown, everything has been designed with extreme attention to detail and quality. Water resistance is guaranteed down to 50 meters.
With the launch of their first timepiece, the Windward TMAO1 V1, upsetting all the existing codes, MONTANDON&Co pioneers in using Bronze for the execution of a horological complication.
This nod to a historical material from marine history is possible thanks to a specially developed alloy guaranteeing total electrochemical stability, further complemented with a bezel, pushers and guards in grade-5 titanium.
A particular secret for the owner of a Windward TMA01 V1 is its specially designed ‘iris’, which mechanism that permits its adjustable opening, controlled via the secondary crown. When opened, the magnificent Flying Tourbillon at the heart of the movement is unveiled, and when closed, this watchmaking complication becomes a secret only known to the owner, perfectly protected from magnetic fields and hidden from view.
