Hublot MP-13 Bi-Axis Tourbillon and Big Bang Tourbillon Full Carbon

At Watches & Wonders 2023 Hublot does not disappoint in bringing us high-end novelties, both on the watchmaking and materials side. Meet two of the highlights.

Over the years, Hublot has gained its reputation as the brand that stands out in a colorful and entertaining way. Where Hublot is there is party.

But above all Hublot has developed itself into a serious watchmaker, surprising the world with out of this world complications, case materials and shapes. The MP-line, which stands for Masterpiece, is the line that over the years has become the platform for Hublot to experiment with the highest of complications and unusual case shapes and materials. “Dare to Dream”, with the creative and limitless mindset that we know from some high-end independent watchmakers.

Hublot MP-13 Bi-Axis Tourbillon Retrograde
This year the 13th iteration in the series is called MP-13, and both on the aesthical and technical level this edition lives up to the expectations.
Two complications are brought together in the 44mm brushed titanium case: a double-axis tourbillon and a dual retrograde display. The tourbillon completes a full rotation every minute on one axis and every 30 seconds on the other, which gives a spectacular, almost hypnotizing effect. The open-worked case enhances the visibility even further. The MP-13 is available in an edition of 50 pieces.

Another high-end surprise is the Big Bang Integrated Tourbillon Full Carbon. When you realize that the tourbillon is not the first that comes to mind observing the watch something special must be going on. The Art of Fusion relates to the case and bracelet materials, which is a fusion of carbon and Textalium. Textalium can be described as a mixture of a fibreglass core with a thin top layer of aluminium. The visual effect is quite cool and will make sure the watch will go un-noted on your wrist.

Another aesthical feature is the open-worked caseback with a permeable structure, adding visual lightness to the watch. Talking about weight, that’s where the Tourbillon Full Carbon gets even more interesting. The whole watch weighs just 68 grams, 26 of which go to the full bracelet. An impressive number and the lightness while wearing is an amazing feeling.
