Hublot’s MP-10 Tourbillon Titanium stands out as a futuristic timepiece at LVMH Watch Week 2024, showcasing unconventional design and functionality. Unlike traditional watches, it features a unique wraparound sapphire crystal that exposes the skeletonized movement components, ensuring clear and legible time-telling in an unconventional manner.

The MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium has a unique design that requires reading from top to bottom due to its fluid movement. It features a first-of-its-kind vertical time display for the Swiss luxury watchmaker, accompanied by an oversized micro-blasted titanium case that exudes innovation at first glance.

The case of the MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium measures 41.5mm in width and 54.1mm from lug to lug. It features an integrated lug design and a large crown positioned at 12 o’clock. The notable aspect of the case is the technically complex crystal that wraps around the sides. One side showcases the 6 o’clock tourbillon, while the visible vertical movement extends from 12 o’clock to 6 o’clock.

The watch face features a rotating hours scale on top and a rotating minutes display beside it. Notably, there’s a power reserve indicator below, using red and green to show movement winding and seconds. Inside, the MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium is powered by the brand’s in-house HUB9013 automatic tourbillon movement, consisting of 592 pieces. This innovative movement provides a 48-hour power reserve and beats at a rate of 21,600 bph.

Personally, I find the back of the Hublot Tourbillon more attractive than the front. The transparent caseback, with a cutout for the crown and tourbillon, provides a clear view of the brushed and matte blasted skeleton bridges. The MP-10 Tourbillon Weight Energy System Titanium, accompanied by an integrated black rubber strap, has a modest water resistance of 30 meters. If that meets your needs, you can acquire one of the limited 50 watches for 250,000 CHF or $290,000 each.
