On 22 May 2012, a traditional charity football match took place at the Louis II Stadium in Monaco. The Star Team for the Children, led by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, played against the team of F1 Pilots with Michael Schumacher as team captain.
All proceeds from this match went to the Foundation Princess Charlène of Monaco. The Swiss watch-making brand CYRUS was the main sponsor of this event. The brand created special edition Kuros timepiece (limited edition of 99 pieces) for this extraordinary event. This watch was offered to HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco at the end of the match.
A case with a diameter of 44mm (including the crowns) boasts four walls in the shape of horns with high quality finish, and encompasses the main watch mechanism. The slanting lugs designed to a hold spare rubber strap fit the wrist perfectly.
The watch displays hours, minutes, seconds, and the date (in the Cyrus font), and it is also equipped with a chronograph function. The face is fitted with three-dimensional hands (3D) and an easy-read function.
In a single glance, you can read the time at night or during the day (the hands are treated with Super-LumiNova), while a special hand, which can measure time up to or down from 4 hours and 30 minutes, enables the exact reading of hours and minutes in the chronograph function.
