Baselworld 2016: MCT Sequential Two S210

Ahead of Baselworld, MCT has previewed the new version of the Sequential Two, called the S210. We previously covered the Sequential Two S200 here which has the same basic configuration as the S200, but with a new movement, a slightly redesigned dial, and larger 46.4 mm x 15.4 mm case (44.6 mm x 14.5 mm on the original model). What has stayed the same is MCT’s distinctive display which consists of four modules that represent the hours and central minutes. Basically, there are three numbers in each quadrant of the dial, each composed of five prisms. As the minute hand rotates the dial in a clockwise direction, each new hour is shown in the next quadrant, which changes in a counter-clockwise direction, while the semi-circle central ring moves to coincide with the current hour that is shown in the opening.

Pre-Baselworld 2015: MCT Frequential One F-110

MCT will debut their latest timepiece, the Frequential One F-110, next week at Baselworld. The timepiece is most similar to the company’s Sequential S100 and S110 collections, except the case is now smaller at 42 mm by 42 mm, and instead of rotating hour numerals, a more traditional set of hands indicate the hours and minutes. In addition, there is a linear power reserve indicator, distinguished by a red hand, at 12 o’clock. Most importantly, the visual focus is now on the centrally located free sprung balance wheel, balance spring and escapement which are supported by a quad-bridge configuration, offering a full view of the oscillations, which happen 18,000 times per hour (or 2.5Hz). The Frequential One F-110 is powered by caliber MCT-F1.0 which consists of 279 components, 33 jewels double mainspring barrels and hand chamfered bridges with “Côtes de

Introducing the MCT Sequential Two S200

Swiss watch brand, Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps (MCT), will introduce the Sequential Two S200 at Baselworld 2014. The Sequential Two is their first round watch and is powered by the same movement as the original Sequential One (comes in a square case). The dial features MCT’s distinctive display which consists of four modules that represent the hours and central minutes. Basically, there are three numbers in each quadrant of the dial, each composed of five prisms. As the minute hand rotates the dial in a clockwise direction, each new hour is shown in the next quadrant, which changes in a counter-clockwise direction, while the semi-circle central ring moves to coincide with the current hour that is shown in the opening. The movement was developed in-house and features 507 components, 85 of which are jewels, a rate of 2.5Hz, a 40-hour
