Hublot's new MP-13 points the way for the future of watchmaking. This 100% Hublot manufacture complication features a double-axis tourbillon and dual retrograde display, all encased in sleek, disruptive style. The MP-13 joins the MP collection of masterpieces that embody disruptive, creative and technical Haute Horlogerie, aimed at collectors eager to discover the watchmaking of tomorrow.
The 44 mm timepiece is encased entirely in brushed titanium and for the first time brings together two complications— the tourbillon and the retrograde display— in one, unique watch. the tourbillon features two axes—a considerable feat, as Hublot is one of only a few watchmakers capable of manufacturing a double-axis tourbillon entirely in-house, having first done so with the MP-09 in 2017. The tourbillon completes a full rotation every minute on one axis, and every 30 seconds on the other. Having two speeds within the same mechanism creates a view that is both hypnotic and technical.
In addition, this tourbillon is skeletonized and suspended. With this architectural design, the tourbillon possessed a weightlessness that more traditional versions lack. It does away with the upper bridge and each component is pared back unsparingly to allow light to pass through unobstructed. To amplify the visual effect, the space surrounding the 6 o’clock tourbillon has been opened up and is protected on both sides by anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
The movement in the MP-13 offers a power reserve of at least four days or 96 hours. It is likely to have the largest power reserve of any double-axis skeleton tourbillon on the market at present. It is able to do so due to the bi-retrograde movement.
