Swiss luxury watch brand Cyrus Genève has created a unique piece of their KLEPCYS watch to support the Only Watch 2011 Charity auction. This 18K white gold and DLC coated titanium wristwatch features time display on a movable axis, retrograde hour function, day/night indication, large date calendar with retrograde rotating three-dimensional tens and a spherical moon.
The KLEPCYS watch was developed in collaboration with award-winning master watchmaker Jean-François Mojon. The movement driving this timepiece is the self-winding Calibre CYR598.
The hour-marker representing 11 on the retrograde scale is highlighted in red as a tribute to the colors of MONACO. It also indicates the year for charity auction – 2011. Likewise, the retrograde hour indicator of this unique timepiece features a ‘white and red’ rotating cube. The logo on the central revolving disk is also highlighted in red.
The case-back of this unique KLEPCYS watch features an 18K red gold coin (copy from the original coin of CYRUS) and the inscription “Pièce unique” – “Only Watch 2011”.
