Cvstos Challenge Jetliner Inkvaders Pirate Guns
After the models featuring a skull, the artist Christian Nguyen chose this time a Pirate of the Caribbean pattern.
Cvstos develops its Inkvaders collection by transforming its famous Skull designed by Christian Nguyen into an intimidating Pirate of the Caribbean. These very limited series of about 10 to 20 pieces each celebrate the rich partnership that Cvstos has with the famous tattoo artist and designer Christian Nguyen, founder of the studio 'Inkvaders' in Geneva.

This Pirate editions are distinguished by the colors and details of the hand-finished dial in order to give an aged patina to the Pirate's skull. In 2018, this wonderful painting is mounted on the Cvstos Jetliner Collection and gives to these pieces a strong and original identity adding guns after the bones and swords of last year.

These two new timepieces mostly have the same technical features, but differ in terms of case material and size, as well as the colours used for the pirate pattern decorating the dial. While one is in aged bronze steel and measures 53.70mm by 41mm, the other is in titanium and 5N red gold measuring 59mm by 45mm. The self-winding mechanical movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal glass on the tonneau-shaped case. Endowed with a 42 hours power-reserve, both watches indicating hours, minutes, seconds and date are equipped with a rubber or alligator leather strap closed by a folding clasp or a pin buckle.
