BIG BANG MP-11
A WATCH WEIGHT OF 90 GRAMS & 14 DAYS OF POWER RESERVE !
Launched during Baselworld 2018 (amongst other novelties), the MP-11 has many interesting features. For instance, its 3D carbon case (or the black version) is composed of polymer matrix. An ultra-light and very resistant material! Used by the U.S military, it’s the first time that a Watchmaking brand uses it in a creation.
The shape of its case is very original, in particular the sort of « Wave » form above the barrels. A nice surprise! as i love when brands introduce novelties out of the box.
The movement HUB9011 is Superb!
On the MP-05, the barrels are in a vertical position. On this one, they’re horizontal and provide no less than 14 days of Power reserve! In-line with the power reserve indicator, the 7 coupled barrels can be wound by hand or with an electric stylus.
I like how visible the escapement wheel is (at 2 o’clock on the time dial). It shows you that the piece is running and is quite hypnotic. I appreciate the fact that they tried to offer as much light/apertures as possible on the top half keeping the time fonction clear/readable.
For those who want to explore the depths of the movement HUB0911, a Full Sapphire limited edition of 200 pieces is available.
3D carbon or Sapphire ? What’s your choice ?
Well done! HUBLOT.
