CYRUS ?KA MBYS? FOR ONLY WATCH
CYRUS Genève: KAMBYS, pièce unique.
Fine and unique, 5 atm water resistant, titanium wristwatch
with seconds animation displayed by three different length hands;
power reserve indicated by three sliding barrels (patent); secret
animation button activated by the crown at 9 o?clock, deployant
clasp in titanium. Functions developed in collaboration with
Jean-François Mojon, awarded best conceptor/developer at the
?Grand Prix de l?Horlogerie de Genève,? Nov. 2010.

Because CYRUS relies only on the intuition of its founders
Because CYRUS does not try to be like others
Because CYRUS has a unique history
and simply because no great genius has ever existed without a
touch of folly.
This is how the KAMBYS collection was born.
The very first timepiece of that new collection will be the one
dedicated to ONLY WATCH 2013.
EUR 40,000 - 45,000
Sold: EUR 40,000
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.
