Cyrus celebrates its 10th anniversary with the new Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire. Made in a limited series of 10 pieces, this sapphire version allows a complete view of the spectacular movement from all angles and lets watch enthusiasts and collectors appreciate all its stunning details.
Designed by master-watchmaker Jean-François Mojon, the Klepcys Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon showcases an outstandingly innovative manual winding movement 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 a vertical position when on the wrist, thereby optimizing its performance in precision.
To further enhance the beauty of this surprising mechanism, Cyrus Genève chooses a unique 3D openworked architecture for its dial and adopts, for the first time, a transparent sapphire crystal case. Composed of a total of 29 parts (the sapphire crystal components are the case body with lugs, the bezel, the caseback ring, and the two sapphire glasses on the dial and on the backside) the style of the 44mm case, excluding the functional rose gold twin-crowns, has been redesigned to hide a maximum of fasteners, screws, and steel elements. Some recessed edges have been slightly rounded to make machining and polishing possible without compromising on design and the strong character of this watch.
