Hublot has released the MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium, its tenth Manufacture Piece (MP). The watch challenges the norms of traditional watchmaking, presenting a timepiece that transcends conventions with its distinctive design and cutting-edge features.
The MP-10 Tourbillon seamlessly combines form and substance, showcasing a sleek design with rounded angles and a sapphire crystal of unparalleled complexity. This fusion reflects Hublot’s commitment to creating watches where mechanical and aesthetic power are inseparable, a defining characteristic of their MP collections.
Hublot’s MP watches are known for their avant-garde approach to complications, and the MP-10 is no exception. With no dial or hands, this timepiece introduces a bold reinvention of classic watchmaking complications. It’s not merely a concept or an exercise in style but a complete, accomplished, and practical watch set to grace the wrists of a fortunate few collectors.
The MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium features four constantly rotating displays for hours, minutes, seconds, and a circular power reserve. The absence of traditional hands allows for a highly architectural design, drawing attention directly to the movement. The power reserve, expressed through a two-tone disc, adds a visually expressive element. The elimination of space constraints enables effortless vertical reading, presenting a fluid and natural movement of the eye.
Intriguingly, the MP-10 retains the weight principle for its winding system but introduces a verticalized and duplicated approach. Two blocks of white gold, arranged along a vertical axis, wind the movement bidirectionally. Hublot’s engineers have developed a system of shock absorbers to prevent collisions, and the watch boasts a power reserve of over 48 hours. Manual winding is facilitated through the crown at 12 o’clock, while time adjustment is achieved with a second crown on the case-back side, preserving the watch’s design fluidity.
The exterior of the MP-10 is as impressive as its movement. The micro-blasted titanium case construction is elegantly simple, consisting of two pieces. However, the sapphire crystal atop the case represents Hublot’s most intricate to date, featuring inclined planes on three axes. The integrated rubber strap is also a testament to the brand’s commitment to refinement.
