Hublot - Meca-10 Clock

Hublot Meca-10 Clock

The watch that inspired a clock: working together with the Jura-based L’Epée manufacture, Hublot has produced an oversized version of its famous MECA-10 manufacture movement for use in a table clock.

Hublot's unveiling of its MECA-10 movement in January 2016 left watch enthusiasts stunned. The manufacture had reinvented the manual movement, offering peerless performance as well as a unique style inspired by the Meccano construction system. The unusual skeleton architecture gives the movement an arresting three-dimensional depth, which is clearly visible through the bridges and case back. Its exceptional 10-day power reserve – now an imperative for any decent manual calibre – is displayed on a disc that can be read on the dial.

In 2020, Hublot has introduced a unique product in an oversized version. The MECA-10 has been made four times larger for use in a table clock, while fully preserving its original specifications, including its 10-day power reserve.

"We have managed to reproduce the unique features of our MECA-10 movement on a larger scale," says Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot. "This feat of engineering was achieved thanks to the concerted effort of the teams from both Hublot and L’Epée. In this way, we are charting a new course for the hallowed tradition of clockmaking."

In order to enlarge its MECA-10 movement, Hublot enlisted the services of the L’Epée manufacture. The world-renowned clockmaking expertise of this Jura-based company made it a natural choice for the collaboration, and because designing a wristwatch is very different to creating a clock, it also gave Hublot an opportunity to showcase its famous "Art of Fusion" approach in a new branch of horology. This particularly impressive result was achieved by combining the expertise of the designers, constructors and master horologists at Hublot and L’Epée.

Strikingly similar to the original, the Hublot MECA-10 Clock is, in essence, an oversized version of its predecessor. Its spacious 19.60 by 18.10 cm case houses the precious movement, which comes in two versions. The first features Meccano-inspired angles and a ring in polished satin-finished steel and transparent composite. The second is covered with black PVD and the bridges supporting the gear trains are also coated in black. The notched crown at 3 o'clock is rubber-coated for a better grip when manually winding the movement.
Like the wristwatch version from which it takes its inspiration, the MECA-10 clock movement features a 10-day power reserve which is displayed on an indicator at 6 o'clock.

These two precious editions of the MECA-10 Clock, the fruit of a close collaboration between Hublot and L’Epée, are exclusive limited edition pieces reserved for true aficionados.

The brand

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand, which is currently headed by Ricardo Guadalupe - its CEO since 2012, to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.
