Thanks to the importance placed on the overall design architecture and design details, every model in their collection is immediately identifiable as MCT through their distinctive lugs and sapphire crystal ring around the caseband. The MCT Sequential Two-S200 is the first model housed in a round case, it is immediately recognizable thanks to the strong DNA running throughout the collection.
Although the Sequential prism hour display might be the most obvious visual clue, one more subtle but no less impressive, a sapphire crystal ring that ascetically lightens the case and quite literally lightens, as in allowing light into the indications, complication and movement.
The top sapphire crystal is not simply placed on the bezel, but is stepped down and invisibly screwed to the case, dispensing with the bezel entirely. This may seen a simple detail, but is further proof of MCT’s uncompromising approach to design. With the sides of the crystal replacing the bezel on top of the case, theMCT Sequential Two-S200 appears slimmer and the transparent sides, in conjunction with the sapphire case band ring and display back, allow light to illuminate the displays from nearly every angle.
The hour modules enable highly legible over-sized numerals. Each of the four hour modules comprises of five triangular prisms, which rotate to display one of three numbers. The current hour is indicated by the open mouth of the C-shape arc around the center of the dial, which also masks the non-current hours. The hour displays sequentially in an anti clockwise direction.
The automatic winding movement was developed in-house by MCT, which ensured that the movement exactly met expectations in terms of design, performance, finish and quality. The 18K gold micro-rotor enables a very slim movement and case, making for a comfortable fit on the wrist, as well as harmoniously pleasing case proportions. The uni-directional micro-rotor offers another advantage in that it requires less force to rotate than a conventional rotor.
While few are not likely to get excited by the subject of gearing. MCT Sequential Two-S200 owners may appreciate the fact that the movement benefits from the latest advances in teeth profiles on the gears. The high efficiency gears mean less energy wasted in friction losses, higher and more consistent power to the regulator for higher precision and a longer power reserve.
The stunning black movement bridges visible through the display back offer a high contrast backdrop to the red gold of rotor, screws and mainspring chaton. While the black movement may appear at first glance to be minimalist, no fewer than 507 components required in its construction bear testimony to the complexity involved. The black of the bridges and plates serves to subtly reinforce the hand finishing of the “Cotes de Geneve”, pelage and hand-beveled edges.
