"More watchmaking, more mastery, more innovation, more audacity, more fusion!" Under the impetus of Jean-Claude Biver, Hublot integrated a new department dedicated to complications to its Manufacture in 2010. The watches created in this laboratory are produced in very limited series and obey no codes. In their conception and their design, real freedom of expression is the order of the day. Perfectly in keeping with this ideal, in 2013, the MP-02 Key of Time demonstrated Hublot’s innovative approach in the field of watches with complications. This ultra-modern creation proposed setting and indicating the time according to one’s desires. Made in a series of 30 pieces in titanium or King Gold, the MP-02 Key of Time houses a mechanical memory movement that enables the wearer to modulate the speed of the hours and minutes as appropriate, via a crown with three positions. In its first position, the hands slow down, with an hour being displayed like quarter-hour. In the second position, the speed of the hands remains normal. And in the third, the hands accelerate, with a quarter-hour being displayed like an hour – to make moments last longer or shorter, or simply to follow the course of normal time.
