This fall, Swiss watchmaker MCT will release the S-110 Evo Venta Black watch. You should know right off the bat that this isn't a normal black watch. It's hailed, in fact, as the blackest watch in the world, thanks to its Vantablack coating. Vantablack isn't a paint or a pigment, but is instead a complex of carbon nanotubes that come together to absorb over 99.965 percent of light. It's used on the dial and parts of the movement, all of which are assembled by hand and housed in a case measuring 45 millimeters. Like the buckle and folding clasp, the case is crafted from titanium with black DLC coating. The watch will retail for $95,000 and is limited to just 10 pieces. Inside, it's essentially the same hand-winding movement that MCT offers in the Sequential One S110, the overview for which is detailed in the video below.
