The HUB9005 movement features 11 barrels allowing for an extremely long 50 days power reserve. That equates to about 1,200 hours. This is a world record in horology.

Hublot Winding Tool
Hublot made a special winding tool for watches powered by the HUB9005 manual-wind movement. This tool was made to look like an impact gun for removing and installing car rims. This fits the theme of the MP-05 being a Ferrari watch.
In Hublot’s Own Words:
“The movement itself was fully designed, developed and produced by the Hublot Manufacture engineers and watchmakers. A record-breaking technical feat. Its tourbillon boasts an impressive 50-day power reserve – thanks to its 11 series-coupled barrels set in a spine formation down the centre of the watch. Its movement broke the record for the highest number of components for a Hublot movement to date – 637 in all. Boasting a futuristic design, the construction showed off the bold shape of its movement, even in its original version.” –Hublot
