Hysek Kalysta

Kalysta is Hysek's first jewellery-watch collection. It features a brand-new complication developed by the manufacture.

Kalysta - meaning "the fairest" - is the fruit of a pure aesthetic vision: set jewels. Bearing in mind that women are more sensitive to creative touches than to mechanical sophistication, Hysek has thought first and foremost in terms of shape, diamonds, brilliance – and emotion.

Beneath its fine apparel, though, Kalysta is powered by an exclusive calibre that redefines refinement and preciousness, without falling prey to stylistic clichés or bland features. The complication, designed and produced in-house, does away with traditional hands, offering instead a whole new way of reading the time.

At Baselworld 2016, the manufacture presented a bejewelled series of models in rose gold and titanium, all 39 mm in diameter, that can be divided into five families. We present today the Kalysta  Exotic Tale watch.

The first Kalysta model constitutes a family in and of itself – something of a unique specimen. The white powder-coated dial is protected by a rose gold case, above which a butterfly hovers, spreading its wings over a finely-etched floral motif. Neither engraved nor painted, the butterfly is an appliqué. Hysek opted for this technique as being the only one that really gives the impression of flight.

At 12 o’clock, a window displays the jumping hours. A red marquise sapphire travels round the rose gold bezel and denotes the passing minutes.
The snow setting is composed of diamonds of different sizes, resembling stars scattered across the Kalysta’s convex bezel.

The automatic jumping hour movement Hysek HW61 offers an approximate 39-hour power reserve and beats at 28’800 VpH.

The composition is regulated at 3 o’clock by a rose gold crown, specially designed for Kalysta: a gold circle with a diamond moon. A moon-stone cabochon adds the finishing touch to this dreamlike metaphor.

The watch comes on a white satin strap.

The brand

The firm’s foundational principles are avant-gardism and technical prowess. Each new timepiece is not simply the modification of an existing aesthetic model, but is completely designed from scratch. This perpetual calling into question leads to the creation of extremely audacious and contemporary timepieces.
