Philosophy

MCT offers collectors and lovers of great design an audacious and highly creative interpretation of time, conceived with respect for the purest rules of fine watchmaking. This is reflected in the brand name: MCT stands for a manufacture of excellence at the service of a profoundly contemporary approach to time. MCT watches bring together lovers of mechanical perfection and fans of great design by associating new watchmaking with the old traditions of fine watchmaking.

Collections

Sequential One

the Sequential One has a square case and is fitted with the calibre MCT-S1 sequential movement which has the largest hour display on the market and a minute hand that sweeps across a sophisticated sapphire disc that instantaneous rotates at the top of every hour to  keep in step with the minute hand. The small seconds are indicated on a bridge visible through the case back.

Sequential Two

Although it has the same patented mechanism for displaying the hours using four separate modules of prisms, the S200 calibre powering the Sequential Two has a different design. A micro-rotor allows this 100% in-house movement to wind itself.
