Mp-15 Takashi Murakami Tourbillon Only Watch: An Exclusive Timepiece And Hublot’s First Central Flying Tourbillon

Hublot’s MP-15 Takashi Murakami Tourbillon Only Watch is a remarkable symbol with diverse meanings for different individuals.

The watch’s central tourbillon showcases Hublot’s commitment to rekindling the allure of Haute Horlogerie, while its rounded case, is reminiscent of a child’s 12-petalled daisy drawing with green accents symbolizing hope. This extraordinary timepiece, inspired by Takashi Murakami’s iconic smiling flower, seamlessly blends the worlds of Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie.

Takashi Murakami, a renowned Japanese artist, known for his affinity towards floral motifs, has become a highly sought-after figure in the art world, and his collaboration with Hublot began in 2020, producing limited-edition co-creations. However, the MP-15 Takashi Murakami Tourbillon Only Watch goes beyond any previous creations, not only because it is a one-of-a-kind piece, but also due to its distinctive central tourbillon.

This central tourbillon embodies the harmonious fusion of art and horological craftsmanship, reflecting the shared dedication of Hublot and Takashi Murakami to Haute Horlogerie. It serves as the focal point, not just physically, but also symbolically, representing the heart of the person who acquires it through the auction in support of Duchenne’s disease research and, more importantly, the hearts of the children battling this disease.

Even the back of the watch resonates with many values, be it high-tech, exquisite, playful, unique, or mesmerizing, making it a true testament to the essence of the art and watchmaking worlds.

This central tourbillon represents the fusion of art and horological design. An idea that is echoed by Hublot’s dedication to Haute Horlogerie and by the world of Takashi Murakami.

The idea is certainly to have Haute Horlogerie take centre stage physically, but not only that. The idea is also to show that the tourbillon – the beating heart of the watch – represents the heart of the person who buys it at the auction in aid of research against Duchenne’s disease, and also the hearts of those children fighting the disease.
