Hublot continues to revolutionize the horological world with its latest masterpiece, the MP-13 Tourbillon Bi-Axis Retrograde 44mm, a dazzling addition to the MP collection—a symbol of Hublot’s unwavering commitment to creativity, technical innovation, and cutting-edge watchmaking.
Though the number 13 may be shrouded in superstition for some, there’s nothing superstitious about the MP-13’s brilliance. Encased in 44mm of brushed titanium, this exclusive timepiece unveils two groundbreaking complications—a double-axis tourbillon and bi-retrograde display—in a single, unparalleled creation. These are not merely embellishments; they are features that elevate the art of watchmaking to new heights.
The tourbillon, an extraordinary complication with a full rotation every minute on one axis and every 30 seconds on the other, is a hypnotic, technical marvel. It’s not just the motion but the aesthetics that set it apart. Hublot has crafted this tourbillon to be both skeletonized and suspended, providing an ethereal weightlessness that traditional iterations lack. The upper bridge is removed, and every component is reduced to allow light to filter through, unobstructed, offering a captivating view of its mechanism.
The bi-retrograde feature is not only energy-intensive but also beautifully efficient. The hour hand skips instantly from one hour to the next, enhancing the daily reading experience for the wearer. A power reserve of an impressive 96 hours, likely the largest of any double-axis skeleton tourbillon in the market, ensures the MP-13 is as practical as it is extraordinary.
“Fourteen years after inaugurating our Manufacture’s first building, we are now unveiling the 13th MP movement produced entirely in-house by Hublot. Creativity is nothing without the tools of the trade, and vice versa. That is what makes our integrated business model so strong. At Hublot, every idea can almost instantly be developed into a project of horological innovation and give rise to extraordinary creations. Our collectors eagerly await the release of each new model, all of which embody cutting-edge watchmaking, as is the case with the new MP-13.”
Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO
