MCT’s Sequential One: One Part Classical, One Part Contemporary (VIDEO)

by on Nov.12, 2010, under Review

The Sequential One from Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps (MCT) is a modern marvel of horological engineering.  It features a sequentially moving dial with jump hour movement.  It’s made of over 550 components (471 in the hand-wound movement alone) and is one of the most visually stimulating timepiece on the market today.

Denis Giguet founded MCT in 2007 as a true boutique manufacture with the goal of creating unique timepieces that would inspire and change the face of time.  Giguet has a history in timepieces, one that includes a stint as Production Director at Harry Winston Rare Timepieces and even as Head of Special Project at Rolex (wait, Rolex has special projects?).

Joining Giguet is his longtime friend and master watchmaker Jerome Marcu, who also hails from Harry Winston, and a man whose name you may not recognize, but whose work you’ve seen many times before, Eric Giroud.  Giroud serves as chief designer for MCT, as well as lead designer for MB&F.  Yup, he’s that good.

Every piece of the the MCT Sequential One is manuactured in Switzerland and all assembly takes place in their Geneva atelier.  Giguet is quick to point out that this watch is just as classical as it is contemporary, with Cotes de Geneve finish on bridges and polished blocks.

To really understand just how cool the Sequential One is, you have to see it in action.  Luckly, Ian Skellern filmed a rose gold Sequential One, and that is what we have for you below.
