Welcome to Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps - Manufacturer of Contemporary Time. My aim is for MCT to be acknowledged as an exclusive, top-end watch producer, a company which places great store in exciting innovation and very high quality. We make timepieces that challenge perceptions in the world of luxury watchmaking and consider ourselves to be in the vanguard of a new wave of exciting Swiss watchmakers. I am not interested in high volume production and do not expect to ever produce more than 300 pieces a year. It is vital that we preserve our innovative culture and entrepreneurial spirit whilst encouraging everyone in the business to have a voice. I know our Retail Partners, all privately owned, independent companies, espouse these values and together we can create a little magic in the world of high horology and stand out from the crowd. As a passionate student of the last 200 years of Swiss Watchmaking, I know that a mechanical movement is the heart of any excellent watch. It is rare for Swiss high horology brands to have their own mechanical movements but MCT calibres will always be the starting point for all our creations. Sequential One features our first mechanical movement which is more complex to design and assemble than a tourbillion. BIOGRAPHY OF DENIS GIGUET, CREATOR AND FOUNDER OF MCT Denis has a long history in the watch industry and he is clearly a person who wants to help shape the future of high horology. This passionate 40 year old French Engineer has excellent technical skills and is widely acknowledged by his peers to be a true connoisseur. His career journey through the watchmaking industry has educated him in the intricacies of the most challenging complications and instilled in him the need for perfection throughout the industrial process. Denis had a very successful corporate career, first with Rolex and then with Harry Winston Watches where as Head of Production he was intimately involved with the highly acclaimed Opus series (from 1 to 6). In 2006, Denis founded his own consultancy practice in Geneva where he helped leading brands to realise their technical goals whilst developing his own ideas. In 2007, Denis founded MCT and began work on Sequential One. The result is a triumph of innovation, cutting edge design and precision engineering. The MCT team is based both in Geneva and Neuchatel and Denis is quick to recognise the invaluable contribution made by over 20 expert artisans who have helped him create this first magical MCT masterpiece. Sequential One features a mechanical movement, designed, created and assembled by Denis Giguet and his team of talented artisans. It is rare for Swiss high horology brands to have their own mechanical movements and extremely rare for such a young brand. Denis plans to continue to challenge traditional watch design but he has the utmost respect for the past 200 years of Swiss high horology. His aim is to introduce new and innovative ways of reading the time.
