While some timepieces seek to emit light, a handful are now starting to explore the opposite, and are trapping light. This is the case with MCT’s collaboration with British artist Sir Anish Kapoor (yes, he’s a knight). He’s known as a sculptor, but he had the foresight to acquire the exclusive rights to a unique material called Vantablack. It’s essentially a substance that’s produced using carbon nanotubes, from which its name is derived – Vertically Aligned NanoTube Arrays.” While most of it see black as, well, black, Vantablack goes further by absorbing 99.965% of the visible spectrum. The remaining 0.035% is hardly perceptible to the naked eye, which gives you the impression that there nothing there, since there is (almost) no light being reflected off the surface. MCT worked with Kapoor to design this special version of the S110 Evo; with Vantablack applied to the lower part of the dial, it makes the mechanism appear to float above it. The material is also used on the opposite end of the minute hand, shaped like a small moon which occasionally appears if it’s above another part of the mechanism.
