Founded in 2010, Cyrus Genève has unveiled the Vertical Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire, a timepiece celebrating the brand’s tenth anniversary.
Designed by master-watchmaker Jean-François Mojon, the first edition of the Klepcys Vertical Tourbillon was released in 2018 and showcases an outstandingly innovative manual winding movement driving the watch. The tourbillon cage, placed in the middle of the dial for the first time, is set on a vertical axis at a 90° angle.
To further enhance the beauty of this surprising mechanism, Cyrus Genève chooses a unique 3D openworked architecture for its dial and adopts, for the first time, a transparent sapphire crystal case which allows a complete view of the movement from all angles and lets watch enthustiasts and collectors appreciate all its stunning details.
The transparency of the case contributes to highlighting the double gold arch, which symmetrically divides the hours and minutes indications. Due to this layout, the timepiece shows the jumping retrograde hours on a left black microbeaded arch with luminescent Arabic numerals while the sweeping retrogade minutes are read off on the right arch. Hour and minute hands are also covered with Super-LumiNova for better legibility in dark light conditions. The seconds are visible on the tourbillon cage thanks to small numbered plates on a five-second interval scale.
