Sequential One S110 Reinterpretation

To be very, very honest, I always find myself conflicted my MCT.  On the one hand, they are making some very cool watches.  On the other hand, several good people were mismanaged out of their jobs 4 years back.  It is very hard for me to think of one without the other.  

But in all fairness, that is now in the past and it is probably time to leave it there.  So as my favorite watch boss Javi Perrigo would say - Let's turn the page.

This is the Sequential One S110 Reinterpretation, and here is the story, straight from the source:

The Sequential S110 EVO introduces a sleeker design without compromising the raw strength of the original.

In these new limited edition S110 EVO models, the signature features of the MCT-S1.0 movement contrast with an unexpected backdrop, namely the velvety appearance of the dial in either black or champagne. The matte finish of this surface is further accentuated by the polished beveling of the edge of the cross-shaped bridge. As a result, the parts of the movement contrast with the dial, creating an exceptional play of light.

The cushion-shaped case, a veritable signature of the brand, is crafted from titanium grade 5 with DLC coating for the anthracite version. A sapphire insert brings light into the heart of the movement, revealing the details of the micro-mechanical finishings. The lugs are also meticulously designed to adhere to the harmony of the watch and also to ensure ergonomic comfort. On the back of the Sequential One S110 EVO, the sapphire crystal reveals the movement, which has also been redesigned. It is remarkably hand-finished with the Côte de Genève motif and bridges and plates with graceful curves. While the Sequential S110 EVO maintains its decisively urban look, it offers refined touches, in particular thanks to a more classical typography and to counter-sunk screws in the bridge.

The MCT-S1.0 movement is a caliber that was designed, developed and perfected in-house by MCT. The company’s verticalization strategy allows for the advantages of flexibility and speed which, combined with creative talent, give MCT the opportunity for continuous innovation. 

These two references enrich the brand’s stylistic range and demonstrate the capacity of Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps to reinvent itself, while preserving its unalterable characteristics.
Sequential One S110 EVO is available in two limited editions: 25 pieces with the champagne dial and blue hands and 25 pieces with the anthracite dial and gray hands.
