Cyrus Klepcys Réveil

The design of a new case inspired by the original Klepcys has been reworked with regard to both proportions and slimness. Balance is the very core of this product. The various materials and finishes ensure smoothness from every point of view. Firmly rooted in comfort, this new aesthetic further contributes in every way to the unique wearer pleasure of this most recent collection. To ensure that the balance of the piece remains identical from one complication to the next, all functions are operated by the crowns.

While picking up the aesthetic codes of the case, the buckle features an original touch originality further enhancing the pleasure of wearing a Cyrus timepiece. First and foremost, the dual blade system allows the wearer to put on and remove the watch simply using two fingers. The originality lies in the fine adjustment system requiring no additional tools and ensuring a perfectly snug fit on the wrist. Finally, the adjustment section that fits neatly the underside of the wrist serves to maintain the visual balance once it is closed.

The finishes and shapes of the strap set a perfect final touch to the case, while the flexibility of the rubber ensures increased wearer enjoyment. Cyrus has opted to play on different finishes designed to maximise this essential feeling of perceived quality and well-made products.

More than just a collector’s item, or object of desire, a timepiece must by its very definition enable simple, easy reading of the time. The new codes of the Cyrus hands play to perfection on the satin-finished/bead blasted contrast which echoes the case finishes. The dial also vividly embodies Da Vinci’s adage. The colours and fonts selected present a cohesive whole in harmony with the easy readability that is a trademark of Cyrus timepieces.

Dating back to the 15th century, the alarm watch was made famous in the mid-1900s by companies such as Vulcain and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Today, Cyrus reinterprets this complication in its own unique way. While the basic principle remains unaltered, Cyrus has focused on instilling the design with a contemporary, technical feel. High-tech materials such as ceramic are now incorporated in the movement, while the decoration of the calibre echoes the case, with satin-polished, bead blasted and polished finishes, thus preserving the overall harmony and balance of this exclusive timepiece issued in a 30-piece limited edition.
