Designed by Fabrice Gonet, the model introduce a new style of high-end watchmaking. Water-resistant to 30m, the case is composed of 43 parts. This cushion-shaped case with wire lugs is may be a wink to the early 1920-1930 complicated officer-style wristwatches. The large Titanium Grade 5 with DLC coating, composed of several layers, including a middle crystal made of sapphire, invite us to different degrees of lecture, as well as the multi-dimensional dial display. The sapphire insert brings light to the center of the movement, revealing the exceptional finishes with cotes de Geneve, as well as bringing contrast to the hand-finishes chamfered bridges and depth.The model can be seen as a bridge between past and future, available in our present. With stylistics elements of the past, such as the cushion shaped case, the regulator-type display inspiration, the manual winding, the model also introduce a new spirit and set the dna of MCT.
Under the front crystal made of sapphire with double anti-reflective coating, we find a central anticlockwise jumping disc,graduated for 60 minutes on a 270 degrees central crystal sapphire, a central red minute hand, four prims hour display at each quarter that allows a sequential indication of the hour. The dial has been completely removed to reveal the depth of the watch and to highlight the perspectives offered by the prism blocks, the cross-shaped bridge or the minute hands.The central jumping disc for the minutes is set with an aperture for the display of the hours. It is interesting to notice that this aperture allows to see clearly the hours each time, with indications crossing. Like a regulator-type watch with jumping hour, reading the time is easy and combined very elegantly digital and analog display. Four modules, located on each quarter, display the passing hours by way way of five triangular prisms, which pivot to reveal the time.
Under the transparent case secured by eight screws, the model is powered by a caliber MCT S1, designed, developed and perfected in-house by MCT, mechanical, manual hand-winding movement, (16 1/2 linen), 471 components, stripped finish on bridges, traditional Breguet terminal curve, patented system for rotation of the minutes dial and for accumulation of energy, frequency 18,000 A/h (2.5Hz), indication of the minutes on 270° sector, power reserve of approx. 40 hours, 81 jewels, shock absorbers. Dial, case and movement are signed. The present watch is in new condition, unworn, with black leather strap and an blackened MCT double deployant clasp, as well as all its original accessories.
