MP-10 TOURBILLON WEIGHT ENERGY SYSTEM TITANIUM

A NEW VISION OF TIME

During the LVMH Watch Week, which opens the annual round of watchmaking novelties, the Nyon-based Manufacture presented a mechanical masterpiece offering an innovative vision of time, far from traditional time-reading codes.

There’s so much to say about the MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium presented by Hublot at LVMH Watch Week, the first watchmaking event of the year held in Miami last January, that an entire book should be devoted to it! Indeed, this surprising timepiece, produced in a limited edition of 50, is packed with innovations. With no hands to indicate the time, and no dial to hide the mechanics, the watch frees itself from traditional codes to feature a vertical display on rollers.

Like a light yet solid armor, the bead-blasted titanium case measures 54.1×41.5mm, 22.4mm high, and houses two crowns, one at 12 o’clock for winding, the other retractable on the back for setting. It is topped by a curved sapphire crystal that stretches into three arms to better envelop the whole, and incorporates a magnifying glass to facilitate information gathering. Inscribed in white on a black background, the time can be read transparently from top to bottom, accompanied by triangular red markers: hours, minutes, power reserve indicator (48 hours) resting on a two-tone green and red disk, and seconds placed on the suspended, inclined cage of the openwork tourbillon.

In terms of motorization, this new Hublot with its complex architecture lives to the rhythm of the HUB9013 caliber, a 3hz automatic movement assembled with 592 components and wound by two linear, vertical, bidirectional white gold masses guided by shock absorbers. Ergonomic despite its impressive dimensions, the MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium attaches to the wrist with two strands of checkerboard-textured black rubber, attached directly to the case with H-screws, and linked by a titanium folding clasp.
