MCT represents ‘ Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps ‘, that implies, once interpreted from French, Contemporary Time Manufacture. Obviously, this suits the watches delivered very well. The way that the MCT Sequential Two is showing time is both current, abnormal and extraordinary. As it were, what we are calling here contemporary watchmaking. Effectively accessible in Red Gold and in White Gold , the MCT Sequential Two S200 comes now in a black DLC restricted version with shaded accents.
Back in 2008, MCT presented their first watch, the Sequential One S100 . For a first endeavor, it was a staggering one. The primary thought of MCT was to make watches with a special presentation, simultaneously energizing and intuitive yet additionally incredibly simple to peruse in a look. By utilizing four pivoting module with crystals for the hours, a retrograde hand on 270° for the minutes and a focal module moving from 90° consistently, MCT had the option to make a watch both current, inventive, lively and simple to utilize. The component might be complicated, the decipherability is brilliant. While the primary watch was coming in a 45mm square case, the subsequent watch made by the brand was coming in an all the more simple to wear round case. It was known as the MCT Sequential Two S200 and it is currently the base for a restricted version made of Black DLCed white gold and brilliant hued numerals.
Technically talking, these new restricted releases are utilizing precisely the same base than the ‘usual‘ MCT Sequential Two – implying that we’re before a serious fascinating piece of horology. The S200 was presented a year ago at Baselworld, in two gold releases (red and white). Utilizing the equivalent pivoting crystals instrument than the Sequential One, this new watch was keeping a similar DNA yet with a round case – that really changed a ton the impression of this watch. The development and show were additionally enhanced a few angles. The MCT Sequential Two isn’t only another case, it’s a totally different watch – with MCT’s DNA.
To comprehend what’s new, you initially need to see how this watch functions. In his past article , our chief editor explained it to us this way “The first trouble is that the C-shape, which is relief-engraved with “Production Contemporaine du Temps”, turns counter-clockwise. The C-shape has a 90 degree opening, which reveals the genuine hour. Also, that real hour is shown by methods for five crystals, which turn to show the right number. The midway situated moment hand shows the minutes on brief track that is encompassing the dial’s perimeter. This ‘C-shape’ circular segment pivots 90° anticlockwise, consistently, so its opening discloses the new hour. This implies that the hours must be perused from four situations on the dial, being at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.“
This C-Shape curve was recently utilized on the S100 as brief track, implying that the minutes were shown on 270°. To improve clarity, the minutes are presently demonstrated on an outside 360° track, as each standard watch. The new display makes it simpler to peruse time yet the enchantment of the hopping circular segment and of the pivoting crystals is as yet alive. The other curiosity comes from the actual development. While the MCT Sequential One was utilizing a mechanical hand-winding development, the MCT Sequential Two brings a fascinating self-winding instrument, depending on a miniature rotor in 21k gold to keep the development adequately thin. The development is obviously completely evolved in-house and selective to MCT. It comes with amazing completions, for example, cleaned inclined points, Geneva Stripes, perlage on the fundamental plate and an advanced layout.
For 2015, MCT chose to present some restricted versions dependent on a black and splendid tones conspire. The case is currently made of 18K white gold covered with black DLC. Such a covering on a valuable metal is amazing. In any case, black DLC on white gold brings an exceptional straightforwardness that uncovers the various completions of the case – reflect cleaned or brushed surfaces – and the render is more exact than on some other material. Both the case, with its heavenly engineering carries, the dial, the crystals and the tie are black. Notwithstanding, MCT decided to breath life into this dull and cold plan with splendid shaded number and coordinating stitchings on the lash. The MCT Sequential Two looks sportier and perhaps more modest than on precious metal.
The case and gems are still utilizing a similar shape. The casebands are thin and the top gem is exceptionally domed. In this manner you have the impression to jump into the development and you can notice the sides of the crystals and their various cog wheels. A sapphire ring embedded in the caseband permits to bring light into the signs, complication and development, making a more grounded three-dimensional visual treat. On the wrist, because of the exceptionally bended and short drags and the round case, the MCT Sequential Two remaining parts incredibly wearable – more than the squared S100 – even with a 44.6mm case.
The MCT Sequential Two S200 black DLC Limited Edition comes in three releases: light blue, yellow and orange. It will be estimated at CHF 97.500 before charges. More subtleties on MCT official .
