Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps, founded in 2007 by Denis Giguet and owned by Cage Holding since 2012, employs around 40 people in Switzerland between their workshops on the shores of Lake Neuchâtel and their Geneva offices.
Working closely with Russian retailer Rich Time of Moscow, MCT Watches has developed the Sequential Two – S200 Eagle, a 10-piece limited edition featuring a two-headed eagle and the Russian flag.
At the center of the model, the double-headed eagle has a rotating movement accompanying each change of hour. Moving in step with the central hours disc, it is crafted from aluminum in order ensure the lightness and balance that are essential to maintaining the extremely high precision of the sequential display that is the signature of MCT watches.
Other unique feature of the Sequential Two – S200 Eagle include the Russian flag that appears for a full hour twice a day, at noon and midnight. The three-colored flag is harmoniously integrated within the mysterious dance of the brand’s iconic prisms. The watch features all the technical characteristics of an S200, developed and crafted entirely in the MCT watchmaking workshops.
The limited edition, comprising seven watches in white gold and three in black DLC-treated gold, is available exclusively from Rich Time in Moscow.
The S200 Eagle showcases the famous prism-based hours indication that has forged the reputation of MCT, as well as the 360-degree minutes display. The hours modules serve to present easily legible oversized numerals. The current hour appears through the open ‘window’ in the C-shaped central hours disc that also conceals the non-relevant hours’ modules. The current hour is successively displayed in a counterclockwise direction. The self-winding movement of the Sequential Two Eagle was developed in-house by MCT in order to meet highly specific expectations in terms of design, performance, finishing and quality.
