Hublot MP-13 Tourbillon Bi-Axis Retrograde Titanium

Hublot presents MP-13, a high-complication mechanical watch with bi-axis tourbillon and bi-retrograde display. This 44 mm model in titanium brings together double-axis tourbillon complication and retrograde mechanism for displaying the hours and minutes.

Hublot is one of only a few watchmakers capable of manufacturing a double-axis tourbillon entirely in-house, having first done so with the MP-09 in 2017. The tourbillon completes a full rotation every minute on one axis, and every 30 seconds on the other. Having two speeds within the same mechanism creates a view that is both hypnotic and technical.

To further enhance its magic, Hublot has crafted a tourbillon with two refined attributes: it is skeletonized and suspended. This architectural design grants the tourbillon a weightlessness that more traditional versions lack.

It does away with the upper bridge and each component is pared back unsparingly to allow light to pass through unobstructed. To amplify the visual effect, the space surrounding the 6 o’clock tourbillon has been opened up and is protected on both sides by anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

The MP-13 guarantees an impressive autonomy of at least four days or 96 hours. It is likely to have the largest power reserve of any double-axis skeleton tourbillon on the market at present. It comes with a power reserve indicator located at 11 o’clock.

This is also the first time Hublot has designed a bi-retrograde movement for both hours and minutes. The display is read from left to right.

The movement is also very easy to set, as the crown at 3 o’clock only has one position. Winding through the minutes automatically moves the hours forward. Hublot designed the movement to only be wound in one direction, in yet another effort to ensure optimal ease of use. This prevents breakages caused by winding the hands backwards.
