Anish Kapoor and MCT reveal Sequential One – S110 Evo Vantablack. As the British sculptor explains, Vantablack is “the blackest material in the universe after a black hole; a physical thing that you cannot see.”

The Sequential One – S110 Evo Vantablack stems from an encounter between Anish Kapoor and MCT Watches starring this high-tech material with its extremely strange properties. Representing an authentic scientific revolution, Vantablack is composed of carbon nanotubes measuring one millionth of a millimetre thick each and capable of absorbing 99.965 per cent of the light they receive.

Initially developed for the military and aerospace industry, Vantablack soon caught the interest of Anish Kapoor. As the artist explains, “it’s the blackest material in the universe, after a black hole; a physical object that is impossible to see”.

For several months, the teams at MCT Watches worked hand in hand with the artist in order to give shape to a mysterious and fascinating watch. Used on the back dial as well as on one end of the minutes hand, shaped like a small moon, Vantablack reveals its incredible properties. The movement appears to be suspended in mid-air, while the small moon appears and disappears as if by magic during its rotation around the dial.

Derived from the Sequential One – S110 Evo, this 10-piece limited series is equipped with the original manual-winding Manufacture movement with its 471 components including 81 jewels, as well as the brand’s sequential display of the hours on prisms. The case of the Sequential One – S110 Evo Vantablack is forged from black DLC coated titanium. Each watch is signed by Anish Kapoor.
