Avant-garde watchmaking may have forgotten about MCT (which stands for Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps), but we have not.
Just in time for Baselworld 2016, the Swiss brand has revealed info about their new MCT Sequential Two S210 watch. An evolution of the wild Sequential One, a timepiece unveiled back in 2009, this new watch shows off the well-known rotating shutter-based hour display, complemented by a new titanium case and other improvements.
Although innovative and unique, the MCT Sequential Two still seems to stay in the traditional realm of watchmaking. Users will receive the same exquisite movement finishing and attention to detail we’ve been used to, wrapped in an incredible complex industrial design worthy of appreciation.
The MCT Sequential Two S210 brags about a cool grade-5 titanium construction, allowing for a futuristic, yet contemporary approach. The titanium brings forth matte, brushed and polished intricacies, in complete contrast with the dial’s angular architecture, with a steampunk art installation set against the backdrop of a futuristic Asian metropolis.
Nonetheless, the MCT Sequential Two S210 lacks any specific “complication,” being a similar project to the S200 in many ways. The MCT-S2.0 time-only caliber, designed in-house, may look simplistic to some, but the sapphire glass of this timepiece, front and back, makes for an incredible view.
The 2.5Hz, micro rotor-powered MCT-S2.0 movement benefits from 654 individual components, including 89 jewels. MCT will produce just 50 units of this beauty, in two dial configurations totaling 25 pieces each: gray anthracite or smooth champagne. You will need 72,500 CHF to own one though.
