In preparation for Baselworld 2016, may we present you the new MCT Watches Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps Sequential Two S210. This new watch featuring MCT's signature prism display concept is presented for the very first time in a 46.4 mm Titanium round case. The innovative time display and impeccably crafted case exhibits all of the key design elements that established the Swiss brand's reputation, including a sapphire ring around the case-band.
The automatic-winding movement with 18K gold micro-rotor was developed in-house by MCT. Highly legible hours are indicated by four modules, each comprising of five triangular prisms. The current hour is highlighted by an open 'window' in a 'C-shape' arc around the center of the dial, which is relief-engraved with "Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps" —MCT.
The 'C-shape' arc rotates sequentially 90 degrees anticlockwise to highlight the new hour, while minutes are displayed 360 degrees around the full perimeter of the dial. The combination of over-sized hour numeral and central minutes offers an extremely legible time indication. The lower mass of the micro-rotor requires less force than a traditional full-size rotor. Visible through the display back, the beautifully hand-finished movement bridges offer an eye-catching contrast to the warm glow of the red gold eccentric weight, screws and mainspring chaton. For the last three years now, MCT has realized a comprehensive vertical integration strategy and now controls all essential stages of their production process, including movement design through to final assembly. With its captivating displays and no-compromise design, the Sequential 210 reinforces MCT's lofty position in high-end contemporary watchmaking. The Sequential Two S210 is available in Titanium with light dial elements and blue hand and screws or a Dark Grey DLC Titanium edition with dark dial elements and a red hand.
This new watch is yet another one that we can't wait to fully review as we report live straight from Baselworld 2016 in two weeks. Our live Baselworld 2016 coverage will begin on March 16, 2016. Stay tuned!
