CVSTOS CHALLENGE CHRONO II Black Forged Carbon Honolulu

Ever since 2013, Swiss luxury watch brand CVSTOS is “one of the main official sponsors” of the Hawaiian THRIATHLON in Honolulu.

The brand thus celebrates the new TRAITHLON with a new model in order to honour all the men and women who make up this universe of high physical and mental impact. This timepiece is dedicated to the competitor, to his better management of efforts and performance during any such race (swimming, running, and cycling).

This tireless search for state-of-the-art technologies has guided CVSTOS towards the implementation of this new material now used in various fields of application such as aerospace, or in the car racing racing, or even in the very closed circle of hyper-cars used to create the chassis which has to meet all kinds of demands.

Based on this new concept, the CARBON HONOLULU is either carved by the latest technologies or created from moulds or materials arranged in random form. It case is made from a specific mixture of carbon fibres (black) and coloured nano-fibre glass (red, blue, orange, etc.) and Epoxy resins.

From this compound, any forms of air bubbles are eliminated either from the resin mixture, or the fibres’ overlays to finally obtain a homogeneous and compact mass. It is then treated through the last cooking process in the autoclave oven at a controlled atmosphere and temperature. When exiting the oven, each timepiece has its own aesthetic.
