CVSTOS Chrono II LB 76 Limited Edition - Tribute to the French MotoGP Pilot Loris Baz

Swiss luxury watch brand CVSTOS announces a limited edition timepiece dedicated to MotoGP pilot Loris Baz.

Back in force on the French market following the opening of several new outlets, CVSTOS chose to partner with GP motorcycle rider Loris Baz, born in 1993 in Sallanches near Geneva, to represent CVSTOS' collection. Taking advantage of the geographical proximity between the pilot and the Geneva-based brand, many synergies are being further developed to promote the sportive and trendsetting identity of the brand while maintaining the traditional values of Swiss watchmaking and its region.
With an experience of more than a dozen years in speed motorcycle race, Loris Baz is notably the youngest champion of the Superstock 600 European having recently achieved a 4th position on Brno MotoGP circuit in Czech Republic. Admirer of the famous pilot Loris Capirossi and bearing the same name, it took for himself and like him the number 65 until 2012 when entering Superbike. With this number being taken by another driver at the time, he decided to keep the number 6 and now sports the number 76.

CVSTOS dedicates an exclusive timepiece limited to 76 pieces worldwide to the Number 1 French MotoGP Pilot. The Chrono II draws inspiration from the competitive world of motorcycling by using Blue Carbon fiber inlay for increased lightness and aesthetically from the pilot's official colours - blue, white and red.
