Hublot unveils the new MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis 5-Day Power Reserve 3D Carbon Rainbow. This timepiece is entirely designed by Hublot and takes the iconic Rainbow design and thrusts it into the 21st century.
The popular and highly-desired gemstone pattern has been reproduced by Hublot using coloured composites inserted into the mass of a 3D carbon case. This is a world first, exclusively unveiled in Miami during the Hublot Loves Art in Miami event.
The starting idea is relatively simple: to reproduce the Rainbow effect of coloured gemstones but using carbon and composites as opposed to gemstones. This exceptionally complex achievement reproduces the natural variations usually achieved by the natural variation of diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds on the surface of the case.
Thanks to its powerful watchmaking and industrial machinery, and the ingenuity of its researchers, Hublot was able to overcome considerable manufacturing complexities one after the other.
As for the movement, this new MP-09 keeps the exceptional calibre that has been its beating heart since its inception: a movement with manual winding and a 5-day power reserve. It comes with a bi-axial tourbillon with one complete rotation per minute for the first axis and a second rotation every 30 seconds for the second axis.
This hypnotic unique double rotation has guided the design of the case with curved sides, which displays the tourbillon at 6 o'clock, within a new, colourful architecture and strictly limited to 8 pieces.
