Cyrus Klepcys GMT Retrograde

Cyrus extends its collection and welcomes its latest creation: "Klepcys GMT retrograde."

Designed to be a time instrument that is practical, easy to use and a trusty companion in our globetrotting adventures, the new Klepcys GMT retrograde incorporates all the brand’s hallmark features, both in terms of cutting-edge technology and its futuristic, “unconventional” style.

This extraordinary timepiece encompasses all the features that set Cyrus creations apart: the functional double crown, the 3D architecture of the dial, the exceptional decoration and finishings are all combined with a reliable, newly-designed manufacture movement.

For the first time, the ergonomic cushion-shaped case with elongated lugs is waterproof to no less than 10 ATM. The case has been resized and now comes in a diameter of 42 mm. The watch is thinner and ultra-light on the wrist as it is made of grade 5 titanium. Available in three versions, in natural polished titanium, two-tone with a black DLC titanium bezel and all black DLC titanium, with its characteristic crowns set at 3h and 9h.  The 3h crown is easy to pull out and turn, thanks to the caoutchouc rubber ring that envelops the crowns and improves grip. The 9h crown is fix and incorporates a pusher for a quick set function.

Cyrus remains loyal to its philosophy of “The Conquest of Innovation”, and imposes no limits where creativity is concerned. TheKlepcys GMT retrograde once again surprises with the exclusive style of the dial, and a state-of-the-art automatic movement crafted in its own ateliers.

The original three-dimensional structure of the dial, long a key feature of the Swiss Maison’s masterpieces, is achieved with overlapping layers that give the watch depth and a style all of its own.

The first element is a transparent antireflective sapphire disc with Arabic luminescent numerals indicating the hours of local time . On the minutes ring each 5 minutes indicators are also luminescent.
The transparent sapphire crystal showcases the upper plate of the movement, which has an elegant sunray openworked pattern. The result is an appealing “squelette” effect which gives enthusiasts and collectors alike the chance to dive into the very heart of the watch and follow the harmonious movement of wheels and gears. The golden hue adds a further delicate colour contrast.

The display of the Klepcys GMT retrograde is completed with a blue lacquer ring, with a luminescent indication of the 24-hour second time zone in even Arabic numerals. This is interrupted at 6h to make room for the small seconds.  The star of this subdial, which is adorned with the typical raised triangle embellishment and black PVD treatment, is the blue three-armed helix, the Cyrus logo; it has been given a luminescent finish, allowing the seconds to be read off.  The end result is an exquisite dial which is harmonious in its many details. The indications are intuitive and can be read off with ease.

During the design phase, Cyrus opted to set local time as the main time; it is displayed with the newly-designed, open-worked rhodium-plated hands.
Now the two crowns come into play. In the first position, the crown at 3h is used to wind the movement. In the second position, it adjusts the hour and minute hands of local time. These rotate at the same time as the blue central retrograde hand with a luminescent triangular tip to indicate the home time. Subsequently, by pressing the push button of the crown set at 9h, the local time hand jumps by one hour each time it is pressed until it displays the desired local time. During adjustment, indications of the minutes and the home time remain unchanged. Thus adjusting to the correct time zone while travelling is made extremely simple.

Klepcys GMT retrograde has been painstakingly designed. It is driven by a powerful customised “engine”which offers outstanding precision performance.  Working with his team of skilled watchmakers and constructors, Jean-François Mojon has developed the new CYR708 in-house automatic calibre. Designed to be robust and reliable, it is set apart by a design that lives up to the brand’s philosophy. Its annular balance wheel beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour, achieving a power reserve of 55 hours.

The sapphire crystal case back also makes it possible to admire the meticulous work of the skilled craftsmen, who decorate the anthracite grey NAC bridges with slightly curved sunrays in a satin  and microbillé finish. The single-block oscillating mass is openworked with a style which recalls the design on the plate as seen from the dial.

Klepcys GMT retrograde comes complete with a customised black caoutchouc rubber strap with a central groove bearing the Cyrus symbol. It fastens with a folding customised clasp in titanium.
Klepcys GMT retrograde is the perfect watch for globetrotters, but also for fans of exclusive watches, in search of a sophisticated time accessory made in just 50 pieces per version.
