CYRUS In a market dominated by automatic watches, CYRUS has dared to launch a timepiece - in titanium - with manual double barrel winding and a seven-day power reserve. The movement is a 100% in-house manufacture movement (290 components, 50 rubies), created under the aegis of renowned, award-winning Swiss watchmaker Jean-François Mojon. This collection is the fruit of the partnership between the two founders, Julien and Laurent LECAMP. The selection of functions, the manual movement, the design features and the unusual bracelet were all created and developed within the family, with the utmost respect for the CYRUS philosophy. The distinctive mark of the two cousins can be found discreetly inscribed on the back of the calibre. Four digits, 7778 are etched, recalling the cousins? two birth dates. The patented power reserve (between 2 and 4 O?clock) will captivate you with its three barrels sliding progressively along a vertical axis as the seven days unfold...Each barrel has a power reserve of two days, apart from the final barrel (three days). The seconds function is truly original and technically advanced, with its three angled hands (red colour), each of which counts 20 seconds before passing the baton to the next hand. Then there is the secret animation (between 9 and 12 O?clock), which is activated by simply pressing the crown at 9 O?clock. The text ?pièce unique? then appears. Press it again, and ?the flagship of Monaco? appears to replace the previous inscription. Press one last time and...the CYRUS logo will be there. The CYRUS KAMBYS ONLY WATCH is the very first timepiece of the KAMBYS collection that will be also officially launched on September 28th in Monaco. A very exclusive timepiece dedicated to a very unique event.
