Swiss luxury watchmaking house CVSTOS enhances their Challenge Jet Liner model with a new exclusive version: «CARBON CONCEPT», the first tonneau case with carbon.
The casing of the middle, inlaid with a carbon fibre material, the weaving of which is so fine that it equals the quality used in the aeronautical industry, harmoniously accentuates the shape of the Challenge case.
Having obtained recognition over the years and proven its ingenuity amongst the different versions created up until now, this new model of the Challenge case has been developed with the same meticulousness as the handmade marquetry that reached its peak under the reign of Louis XIV.
In the same vein as the delicate work of the cabinetmaker, who cuts the wood to shape and veneers it by hand, the carbon has been inlaid and then manually lacquered to create this new timepiece, which is as innovative as it is traditional.
CVSTOS has worked across the entire spectrum of its own processes to completely reinvent and develop a new case for the CHALLENGE JETLINER CARBON:
- Cutting with a laser prevents the carbon fibre material from fraying, thus giving each component cut a perfect geometry.
- Inlaying each of the cut components in its respective housing by hand.
- Manual coating of the material with seven (7) layers of lacquer successively followed by firing in the ovens (autoclaves) in a controlled atmosphere provided for this purpose.
- Levelling of the inlaid surface by means of a robotic correction process.
- Finishing with a final manual polish.
The strict and chronological order of these different phases endows this fusion of materials with a finish of an unrivalled appearance and depth.
