Chris Hemsworth attended the global launch of the Montblanc Bohème Collection on 28th August 2014 at the Children's Art Theatre in Shanghai, China. Chris Hemsworth wore a dark coloured suit over a navy shirt, and accessorised with a silver band ring and Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC timepiece.

How incredibly blue are Chris Hemsworth's eyes? While I don't usually recommend wearing a dark navy shirt against the black / navy suit, the 'Thor' actor's choice of attire provided a great contrast against his porcelain fair skin and accentuated the beautiful tone of his eyes. Never thought I would use Thor and porcelain in the same sentence, I guess Chris Hemsworth has mastered the intricate art of fusing hard and soft. His 90s boy band hairstyle surprisingly did not look dated, just how did he do it?

And of course my eyes were drawn to the gorgeous timepiece that Chris Hemsworth wore at the event. Love the very masculine black casing against the stark white numerals and markings on the watch face. The stunning timepiece was first presented earlier this year during the SIHH in Geneva (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie). The diamond patterned watch strap is from Montblanc's new Extreme Leathergoods Collection which will be released from September 2014. Great synergy to unite common grounds within their leather goods and watches businesses, which sounds logical but somehow rarely seen elsewhere.

Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC

A little more on the Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC: DLC stands for  “diamond-like carbon”, the material / treatment that the toughness of the stainless steel case's surface has been increased to. Miniscule glass spherules are blasted under high pressure to give the steel a microscopic texture to which the DLC coating can almost inseparably adhere, thus producing a fine matte finish on the surface. The colour of the diamond-like carbon coating is described as “Black 4”, which stands for “very black”. The black diamond patterned leather strap is made of black “Vulcarboné”, and is scratch, water and fire resistant. 

A stunning timepiece with extreme qualities, much like Thor with his porcelain smooth skin. The Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC will be available from autumn 2014.
