Just in time for Baselworld 2016, MCT (for Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps) has dropped details on the MCT Sequential Two S210 – a subtle balance between elegance and technology. Once again, MCT draws inspiration from contemporary architecture: aggressive edges, bright minutes displays combined with more extensive curves, a composition reminiscent of the inventive urbanism of large American or Asian cities.
A brand signature, the cross-shaped structure is now adorned with a highly original curve following that of the sapphire crystal which accentuates the relief of the Sequential movement, to which it is affixed by four screws. The circular satin-brushed finish and the polished chamfering of its edges create an elegant play of light.
The iconic Sequential display comes in a round 46.4 mm case, available in grade 5 titanium, with DLC treatment. The combination of the sapphire crystals with glareproof treatment and the joint of the case middle, also in sapphire crystal, allows the light to pass throughout the case, therefore highlighting the complications and allowing the finishes of the micromechanics to be admired.
The hours are displayed in oversized numerals on four surfaces, each composed of five prisms. The C-shaped central disc displays the current time through its aperture, while concealing the others. When the hour changes, it suddenly turns 90° in an anticlockwise direction to display the following hour.
The minutes markers are displayed on the rim of the dial. A large central hand guarantees its readability.
In the two new limited edition S210s, the singular style of the MCT-S2.0 movement which conceals 654 highly technical components is showcased by a new dial background: anthracite or champagne, whose silky appearance contrasts with the technical look of this timepiece.
These two references, each produced in 25 copies, enrich the Sequential Two range and demonstrate the ability of the Contemporary Manufacture of Time to reinvent itself while retaining its uniqueness.
