Unveiled during the Time to Watches trade fair in Geneva, the new Carl Suchy & Söhne Belvedere watch takes inspiration from the world-famous Belvedere Palace, which stands in the heart of Vienna and was once the residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy.
The Belvedere watch was developed by designer Milos Ristin and master watchmaker Marc Jenni. The watch fuses two contrasting aspects of Viennese aesthetics, rationalism, and emotion.
The watch boasts a unique date display window that changes position each day. Then, there is the asymmetrical guilloché dial that transforms the look of the watch every twenty-four hours. The skeletonized hands and indexes light up brightly on the dial thanks to a generous application of SuperLumiNova, ensuring high legibility even in difficult lighting conditions.
The stainless-steel case of the Belvedere is also subtly animated by the interplay of polished and satin-finished surfaces.
The exhibition case back of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal reveals a decorated automatic movement with a rotor featuring the micro-engraved facade of Belvedere Palace.
This Swiss-made watch runs on the CSS201 caliber, which is built upon a Dubois Dépraz and delivers 42 hours of power reserve.
The integrated high-quality rubber strap has an elegantly textured inner surface for maximum wearing comfort. Fitted with a screw-down crown, the watch is water resistant up to 100 meters.
The new model by Carl Suchy & Söhne is delivered in a limited production number of one-hundred watches in 2023. It is available in white, blue, and black color variants.
