The MCT Dodekal One D110, which we acquainted with you here , is just one of the most noteworthy mechanical computerized hour signs available. MCT is the contraction of Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps, and the name really says everything. This “very contemporary” watch manufactory, which was dispatched in 2007, doesn’t make wrist watches that demonstrate time just by 2 or 3 hands. Also, their most recent creation, the Dodekal One that we’re seeing today, is, even in the field of watches with another approach to show time ( something we love here at Monochrome ), a flat out extraordinariness. Today we go active with the Dodekal One D110. 

Hands turn all around. The roundabout movement of hands has been generally embraced for the sign of time for quite a long time; the semantic thought of how time will be shown is simple. Not content with this conventional sign, MCT has built up a few watches with abnormal time shows, like the Sequential One ( see our full audit here ) and Sequential Two .

MCT is known for speculation contrastingly however not only for being unique. Introduced to commend the 10th commemoration of the brand, the Dodekal One is on the double delightful and actually inventive yet above all its computerized time sign is too clear. It is undoubtedly one of the most persuading and noteworthy answers for showing advanced hours mechanically.

When we previously announced about the dispatch of the MCT Dodekal One – before we got the opportunity to do an appropriate active survey – we got various solicitations for video showing the hour change. You requested it thus we are delivering.

The hours are shown carefully in the focal point of the watch where space has been made accessible. Precisely, the interaction depends on a complex arrangement of cams and carriages. The smooth hour change is affected by the translational movement of sections over a 2.5 second time span (as per the official statement yet it appears to be a lot quicker). Minutes are shown on account of a flying hand combined with a straightforward circle. The moment records are orchestrated on a dark roundabout dial. In the corners, spans (non-useful) make right the round development, while giving a cool and specialized cylindrical appearance.

Turn the watch over and you see the excellent design of the in-house type D1. Ticking at 18’000 vibrations each hour/2.5 Hz. it has a force hold of 50 hours. The programmed winding is driven by a gold miniature rotor. Time can be put forth as it were. The development improvement highlights Geneva stripes and pleasant chamfers. The equilibrium connect is open-worked. In contrast to the Sequential One and the Sequential Two, it is a full equilibrium connect. The equilibrium is free sprung (with Breguet terminal bend) and it has change screws.

The Dodekal One square, pad formed case includes delicate bends differentiating perfectly against ground-breaking points. It is delivered in evaluation 5 titanium or DLC-titanium and pink gold. The sapphire gem is delicately cambered and the short, tightened drags are open-worked.

The MCT Dodekal One is combined with a matt croc cowhide lash got with a triple collapsing clasp. MSRP is CHF 55,000 for the evaluation 5 titanium restricted edition.
