New Cyrus 5 piece-limited editions with titanium black DLC, rose gold or two-tone case (44 mm), retrograde hours and minutes, tourbillon, manual-winding calibre CYR625.
After the launch of the “Klepcys Vertical Tourbillon” in 2018, the first model to feature a tourbillon complication in its range, the young and dynamic independent Cyrus Manufacture, based in Le Locle, is presenting a new version of its innovative timepiece designed for enthusiasts of high-end exclusive mechanics: the Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon.
Jean-François Mojon, the Manufacture’s technical director and inspirational master watchmaker, is the mastermind behind Cyrus creations. With this new timepiece, he has set out to renew the magic of the Klepcys Vertical Tourbillon, creating an interpretation that showcases the outstandingly innovative mechanism driving the watch. The tourbillon cage, placed in the middle of the dial for the first time, is set on a vertical axis at a 90° angle. Painstaking studies by the technical team at Cyrus revealed that this angle ensures the tourbillon cage is almost always in vertical position when on the wrist, thereby optimising its performance in precision. Spectacular and refined, the new Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon allows fine watchmaking enthusiasts to dive right into the heart of the movement and enjoy the “dance” performed by its parts while reading off the retrograde time.
Each element of the mechanism is finely finished and decorated, transforming it into an animated piece of exquisite craftsmanship. All the visible elements on the “face” of the Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon are positioned in such a way that ensure the design is perfectly symmetrical and are set out in a three-dimensional architecture which adds further depth. The arched vertical bridge, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s self-supporting bridge, decorated using the “microbillage” technique features bevelled, polished edges and frames the tourbillon cage which performs one full rotation in one minute. It harmoniously divides the dial into two equal parts, making it easier to read off the retrograde hours and minutes. This original 3D structure is protected by a tailor-made sapphire crystal glass which is domed and anti-reflective, with a thickness of 1.2 mm.
Every component of the hand-winding manufacture movement, calibre CYR625, with a double barrel offering more than a 100-hour power reserve, has been painstakingly decorated to give Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon a sophisticated allure. The “beating heart” of the Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon can also be seen from the case back.
The Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon is a limited edition manufactured in three versions. Five pieces of each are available: in grade 5 titanium with black DLC treatment, in 4N rose gold and a two-tone version in 4N rose gold with black DLC titanium bezel. The watch is completed with a black alligator leather strap with a folding DLC titanium clasp for the titanium and two-tone versions. The model in 4N rose gold features a brown alligator leather strap, with a gold buckle.
