Global sporting events, movie premiers and stage shows were not the only casualties of last year’s lock downs, many significant watch launches were also delayed.
Independent watchmaker Cyrus had big plans to celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2020, but held back the launch of its most significant anniversary pieces for today’s more conducive conditions and only today reveals a limited edition Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire, a year later than planned.
Cyrus is showing its latest masterpieces at WATCHPRO Salon from November 12 to 13 at The Londoner Hotel on Leicester Square.
The latest limited edition, a sapphire-cased version of its 2018 Klepcys Vertical Tourbillon, is worth the wait.
The tourbillon cage is set on a golden arched bridge at a 90° angle, which helps it keep the watch as accurate as possible because it is on a horizontal plain more of the time when worn.
The clear 44mm cushion-shaped sapphire case and domed glass is ideal for showing off the three-dimensional open-worked architecture of the dial and in-house manufactured hand-winding calibre CYR625 with four day power reserve.
Hours are shown with a retrograde jumping hand on the left of the dial while a sweeping retrograde hand displays the minutes.
Seconds are read off a scale on the tourbillon cage and the power reserve is on a sphere at 12 o’clock.
The watch is worn on a white rubber strap featuring a new embossed prism pattern and is fitted with a 18K gold folding buckle embellished with the Cyrus logo.
Only 10 are being made priced at CHF 245,000.
Cyrus is one of the star brands at this year’s WATCHPRO Salon, a showcase of prestige watchmakers and a chance for brands, retailers and press to meet collectors and enthusiasts in 5-star luxury.
The two-day event takes place from November 12 to 13 at The Londoner, a brand new 5-star hotel on London’s Leicester Square.
