MCT Sequential One – S110 Evo Vantablack by Anish Kapoor
MCT Watches and the artist Anish Kapoor present the Sequential One – S110 Evo Vantablack, the first watch to feature the blackest material ever produced by humankind, Vantablack.
The Sequential One – S110 Evo Vantablack is born from an encounter between Anish Kapoor and MCT Watches starring this high-tech material with its extremely strange properties. Representing an authentic scientific revolution, Vantablack is composed of carbon nanotubes measuring one millionth of a millimetre thick each and capable of absorbing 99.965 per cent of the light they receive.
Initially developed for the military and aerospace industry, Vantablack caught Anish Kapoor’s attention. As the artist explains, “it’s the blackest material in the universe, after a black hole; a physical object that is impossible to see”.
For several months, the teams at MCT Watches worked with the artist in order to give shape to this fascinating watch. Used on the back dial as well as on one end of the minutes hand, shaped like a small moon, Vantablack reveals its incredible properties. The movement appears to be suspended in mid-air, while the small moon appears and disappears during its rotation around the dial.
Limited to 10 pieces, this model derived from the Sequential One – S110 Evo is equipped with the original manual-winding Manufacture movement with its 471 components including 81 jewels, as well as the brand’s sequential display of the hours on prisms. The case of the Sequential One – S110 Evo Vantablack is forged from black DLC coated titanium. Each watch is signed by Anish Kapoor.
