Watches are designed to create a sense of grounding through their ability to tell, or convey time. Hublot’s MP-02 Key of Time Watch seems to be anything but that. The watch is finished with a black DLC coating on top of a titanium case and a rubber strap. A “vertical tourbillon cage” displays the seconds, and three diffrent time modes that we don’t really understand their utility are at your beck and call.
- If you want to savour every second of the passing of time: you can slow down the speed of the watch hands, dividing time by 4, whereby 1 conventional hour is represented as quarter of an hour on the MP-02 Key of Time display.
- If you want “real” time: select normal hand speed, to retain “standard” time, whereby one conventional hour equates to one hour on the MP-02 Key of Time.
- If you want time to pass quicker: you can accelerate the hand speed, multiplying time by four, whereby a conventional quarter of an hour is represented as one hour on the MP-02 Key of Time Key of Time display.
No word on a price, but expect it to be well above $10,000, if not $50,000.
