The family is growing with four new versions that have just been added to the MP-09 “Manufacture Piece” collection.
June 22, 2021: 'Hublot is, by its nature, a manufacture. We are always acquiring new know-how, and mastering new materials and new technologies. Our engineers come up with the concepts, our designers run with them, and our watchmakers build and produce them. It’s collective work by a team that sets itself no limitations. That is what brought these new MP-09 into being. These four editions in blue, red, yellow and green, which are each limited to 8 pieces, represent one of the highest technological peaks we have reached. Once again, we have pushed back the limits for carbon and tourbillon technology.'

Hublot’s “MP” (Manufacture Piece) represents the spirit of the house... taken to its extremes. These extraordinary creations, which are off the beaten track, are a fusion between technology and aesthetics to form a unique and inseparable whole. It is no longer a matter of form and substance—the form is the substance and the reverse is also true.
MP-09 embodies this vision with a key word: integration. Firstly, that of the case and its queen of complications—the Tourbillon Bi-Axis. The whole challenge of the piece was to create a case with a totally unique shape, all made from curves and corners on two different planes, to present the Tourbillon in a singular way.
Then, the integration of all of Hublot’s expertise. As a 100% integrated manufacture, which masters the conception, design, production and assembly of every one of its creations, Hublot can demonstrate all of its creative independence, embodied in the MP-09.
“3D Carbon” is a material that nobody masters like Hublot, which is capable of sculpting it to form curves, angles and inclined planes of a rare complexity, whilst always guaranteeing its water resistance and durability. Carbon also offers the new MP-09 a significant weight saving, accentuating the sensation of a piece with an extreme look and a unique complication... which is as light as a feather on your wrist.
Finally, “color”, which is what sets this new MP-09 family apart. It comes in a choice of four: yellow, blue, green and red. Four radically different approaches, with solution-dyed 3D carbon cases that have matching structured rubber straps, hands and hour markers. Sporty, stealthy or flashy, there is one for every taste, but not for everybody: only 8 numbered pieces will be made of each version.
The new Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis beats to the rhythm of the HUB9009.H1.RA manual-winding, mechanical calibre with a 5-day power reserve. It is equipped with a bi-axial tourbillon with a full rotation every minute for the first axis and a second rotation every 30 seconds for the second axis. It is this hypnotic and unique double rotation that guided the conception of this inclined case, which shows the tourbillon at 6 o’clock, as part of a new colour, 3D carbon architecture, with the middle and back cover in titanium, as well as a double anti-reflective sapphire glass.
