Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis

Dressed in an all new case and equipped with an exclusive, in house mechanical movement, the Hublot MP-09 multi-axis tourbillon offers unique visibility by providing maximum exposure to the tourbillon and its fascinating double rotation.

The Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis watch is powered with the caliber HUB9009.H1.RA, a mechanical movement with self-winding featuring a 5-day power reserve. It also features a bi-axial tourbillon that undertakes a complete rotation per minute for the first axis and a rotation every 30 seconds for the second.
In order to offer the greatest possible visibility to the watch’s beating heart, the watchmakers at the Hublot manufacture have created an all-new MP-09 design for the movement and for the case. Thanks to its position at 6 o’clock and a large opening that covers a very complex 3-sided sapphire glass, the gaze of the wearer will literally plunge onto the frantic travel of this bi-axial tourbillon, which overcomes the effects of gravity in a much more subtle manner than an ordinary tourbillon.
Besides this technical specific feature, the MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis also stands out because of its innovative date corrector, which is as ingenious as it is practical. Via a simple winding movement of the lever up or down, the date moves respectively forward or back by a day.
The construction of the dial over several levels—alternating black, white and red—also enhances the elegant character of the MP-09. Around the hours and minutes display, the date indication—instantaneous—is arranged in tiers in two half-circles on two distinct levels, while the 5-day power reserve is displayed in a gauge at 9 o’clock.
Incorporating many codes from Hublot’s DNA, the 49-mm diameter case, water resistant to 30 metres, comes in two distinct versions: in titanium or in King Gold (bezel / upper and lower plates / back). Like all exceptional watches combining cutting edge technology and complex construction, the Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis model is subject to production that is, by definition, limited. The MP-09 in titanium will be a limited edition of 50, whereas the version in King Gold is limited to 20.
