The 1 st Hublot multi-axis tourbillon designed for unique visibility
All-new case and movement made at the manufacture

With its new Manufacture Piece (MP), Hublot is pushing back the boundaries in terms of
multi-axis tourbillons. The MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis is thus the result of a powerful idea: to
provide a maximum of visibility on the tourbillon—and its fascinating double rotation—by
designing a fine watchmaking movement devoted to this objective, and then creating an
original case that highlights the 100% manufacture calibre. Here, the function defines the
form. This perfectly reflects the prevailing philosophy in the design of all of Hublot’s “MPs”,
namely to develop an exclusive movement dedicated to a function and to design specific
external parts to highlight this motor.

With our Manufacture Pieces, we are taking the expression of
our watchmaking savoir-faire very far and making the most of it
to give each watch a specific aesthetic,

Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.

The MP-09 corresponds in every way to this concept. Let’s remember that this capacity to
design and produce an interdependent movement and case is the signature of a truly
integrated manufacture.

The Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis watch beats to the rhythm of the fine watchmaking
calibre 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. This means that the
dynamic movement — immediately perceptible — of this double tourbillon frame has an
appearance that is as fascinating as it is fun.

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.

In unveiling its MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis, Hublot once again demonstrates its capacity to
design clearly unique and distinctive watches. Watches that clearly bear Hublot’s signature
with a strong character that demonstrate an absolute mastery in all areas of fine
