Cyrus was founded in 2010 by a Swiss entrepreneurial family with a long tradition in the creation of leading global luxury brands.
Since 2017 the Company is managed by Mr. Walter Ribaga, with a qualified professional career of over 35 years of experience in the management of all the aspects of watchmaking.
Cyrus owes its name to Cyrus the Great, the famous Persian king who lived in the 6th century B.C. An extraordinary personage, celebrated for his grandiose, ambitious undertakings, giving rise to the great Persian Empire. This same spirit of conquest, the desire to explore new horizons, and to be the artificer of exclusive creations with a style all of its own, are fully shared by CYRUS whose philosophy is to pursue the "Conquest of Innovation".
The brainchild behind all Cyrus creations is Jean-François Mojon, one of the most talented contemporary master watchmakers, awarded best watch movement designer at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2010 and founder of Chronode, based in Le Locle, the internal manufacture of brand.
Thanks to its know-how and productive autonomy, Cyrus can express the maximum creative freedom in the realisation of its timepieces, from planning to design, prototyping, production of calibres, decoration, testing and final assembly.
Cyrus is best known for two collections: KLECPYS and KAMBYS, both featuring a double functional crown, a three-dimensional architecture of the dials and an unconventional way to display the classic functions of a watch, all distinguishing codes of the brand.
All these hallmarks are deep-rooted in the Klepcys Moon, whose in-house movement boasts two patents for the linear display of time and the large retrograde calendar, in the Klepcys Alarm with its unusual hammer that chimes like a minute repeater as well as in the Klepcys Vertical Tourbillon. An amazing horological piece with a unique 3D display featuring the tourbillon cage - for the first time positioned in the centre of dial - on a vertical axis inclined at 90° to improve timekeeping precision and framed by a curved vertical bridge.
In 2020 Cyrus extends its Klepcys collection by adding the Klepcys GMT Retrograde featuring a complete new automatic manufacture movement, a specifically designed titanium case of 42 mm in diameter, and a useful, instantly readable and user-friendly dual time function.
The Klepcys collection includes also chronograph and time-only models and as well as the Kambys line, the only tonneau-shaped timepiece of the brand with a manual winding movement and an impressive 7-day power reserve and small seconds indication, are produced in limited editions.
