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.  

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
