Cyrus - Klepcys Alarm for Only Watch 2019

Cyrus Klepcys Alarm for Only Watch 2019

Cyrus Watches is participating in the 8th edition of the biannual charity auction with a model featuring the “alarm complication” and a green olive dial.

The creator of the Cyrus Klepcys Alarm, a superlatively manufactured watch with an unusual interpretation of the alarm function that incorporates the typical chime of the minute repeater, is Jean-François Mojon, one of today’s most talented master watchmakers and technical manager of Chronode, the in-house Manufacture of the Cyrus Watches Group. 

The common element of this exclusive watch, with a modern, bold style that immediately identifies it with the Cyrus brand, is its multi-layer, cushion-shaped steel case with black DLC coating and its double crown (46 mm in diameter without crowns), extremely comfortable on the wrist thanks to its ergonomic construction. 

Two crowns have now become a distinctive feature of Cyrus. Usually, both are functional in all the models of the various collections. The Klepcys Alarm is an exception to the rule, as only the crown placed at 3 o'clock - highlighted with a green olive rubber ring - is operational, while the one at 9 o'clock is purely aesthetic.

The bezel frames a large, round, three-dimensional green olive dial with the typical decoration of engraved triangular motifs which is rich in indicators and has many details that make it truly unique.

The hour, minute and second hands are slightly off-centre to the left and show the time on an upper arch, with a decoration that recalls vinyl records, and diamond cut applied Arabic numerals, filled with SuperLuminova, mixed with indices. Between 10 and 12 o'clock is a display with a rotating olive green/black disc and customised screws bearing the Cyrus logo that provides the day/night indication of the main time. 

The Klepcys Alarm also has a secondary dial, between 3 and 6 o'clock for setting the alarm function. Surrounded by two concentric rings, one white with even Arabic numerals on a 24 hour scale and an outer black one indicating the minutes on a scale of 15, it has a central two-tone olive green/black part subdivided by a red line to distinguish the day-time numbers from the night-time ones. 

Between 5 and 9 o'clock, the space on the dial is dominated by a large symmetrical opening that makes it possible to see a section of the movement and attracts attention to the alarm hammer. Its particular design recalls the shape of a bell, exhibits a brushed surface and bevelled, polished corners, and is embellished with the Cyrus logo. It strikes various chimes producing harmonious, easily heard notes for a maximum time of 16 seconds. 

Setting the alarm is simple and intuitive. Just pull out the crown in first position to rotate the pointers, in either direction, and select the chosen hour on the 24 hour scale, also setting the minutes at intervals of 5. To know if the alarm is active, just check if the small hand with a luminescent triangular tip at 7 o'clock is positioned to ON or OFF, shown in green and red. Simply pressing on the crown at 3 o'clock turns this feature on or off. 

The beating heart of the timepiece is its in-house manufactured hand-winding CYR1280 calibre which ensures a power reserve of 72 hours. The case back is engraved “ONLY WATCH” and its anti-reflective sapphire crystal allows to admire the elegant architecture of the movement. It displays two parallel barrels with the ratchet-wheel embellished with black lacquer and the helix, Cyrus's symbol. The exclusive winding system, conceived by Jean-François Mojon in collaboration with his team, allows the barrel placed close to the balance wheel to power the main time and the second to provide the energy to the sub-dial that activates the alarm.

In keeping with the tradition of watchmaking art, no detail is overlooked, and also the bridges of the movement are finely finished and decorated with an engraved, curved sunray pattern, brushed and polished, on which the jewels and the mirror-polished screws stand out.

The Klepcys Alarm Only Watch unique piece is completed by a customised black rubber strap with a central groove bearing the Cyrus symbol and a folding clasp that has a mechanism for a simple and quick size setting.
