[Special Report from Watch House Basel] On April 25, 2013, the annual watch industry event Basel International Watch Fair kicked off. The watch house team went to Switzerland. Bring the report of the exhibition to everyone at the front.
The MP-02 Key of Time King Gold is the second new work released by the HUBLOT Masterpiece series after the MP-01 was launched in January this year. It is much bolder and more aggressive than the MP-01 in both design and function presentation. Off the hook.
The rather powerful shield-shaped case outline, the tensioned support dial design, and the most popular vertical tourbillon device make the entire watch look like an alien in a science fiction movie ready to invade the earth. The ship also contains a mysterious powerful force, and the secret of this power is hidden in the support structure on the faceplate.
The bracket-shaped dial can be regarded as the design that best reflects the personality of the MP-02 Key of Time King Gold watch. The hour and minute time dials are displayed on the right side of the dial, and the 12 time scales face the entire dial like sunlight. Radially shaped, a small grid with a concave pattern printed with a grid pattern in the center presents a sense of technology;
Three large brackets with ‘TIME’, ‘4X SPEED’ and ‘1/4 SPEED’ printed on the left side of the face plate, respectively, mean that the time elapses at standard speed, 4x speed and 1/4 speed. The user only needs to manually rotate the position At 9 o’clock, the time flow rate can be switched between these three speeds.
If you want the hard time to pass faster, then please set the twist to segment 3: you can speed up the pointer operation at 4 times the speed, in fact, it only takes 15 minutes, but it looks like the MP-02 Key of Time It’s like 1 hour has passed; or if you think the good time is too worthy of nostalgia, then you may wish to set the twist to position 1: you can slow down the pointer at a standard speed of 1/4 and turn each hour into 15 minutes on the MP-02 Key of Time King Gold; and no matter how long it is, when you want the time to run at the standard speed, just set the twist to the second position, and the time will immediately jump back to the current standard Time and run at standard speed. All this is thanks to a specially designed mechanical memory device.
The newly developed MP-02 uses the ‘mechanical memory’ mode to achieve the dream of ‘manipulating time as you wish’ and being the master of time as you feel.
Summary: It should be said that it is a very powerful watch design that almost breaks the industry’s conventions, but this is also the long-standing goal of Hublot.
The pictures and information collected by the reporting team in front of the Watch House will be uploaded to the special topics in Basel, so stay tuned.
