A true technical innovation, KLEPCYS DICE – first introduced in summer 2021 - marks a new milestone in the chronograph complication in the 21st century. It was, in fact, the first wristwatch on the market to be equipped with two chronographs capable of functioning totally independently of each other, or in synchrony
As the name suggests DICE is the acronym for DOUBLE INDEPENDENT CHRONOGRAPH EVOLUTION; a full-fledged revolution on the watchmaking scene which, for the very first time, sees two separate chronographic movements assembled in a single case.
Following the runaway success of the first edition of the KLEPCYS DICE, followed up with the KLEPCYS DICE LIME presented at this year's Watches and Wonders in Geneva, we are pleased to introduce a new version of this famous chronograph: KLEPCYS DICE RACING.
The KLEPCYS DICE RACING comes in two case variants , in a limited edition of just 15 pieces each.
This latest creation, brainchild of master watchmaker Jean-François Mojon, has a revamped look and experiments with an innovative material the Maison has never used before: carbon fiber. Its highly resistant nature, along with its characteristic lightness, thermal insulation and flame resistance, ensure carbon fiber is an appealing choice.
KLEPCYS DICE RACING still retains its iconic cushion-shaped case with a diameter of 42 mm, water resistant to 10 ATM and available in polished/brushed grade-5 titanium, or black DLC-coated titanium which has been teamed with an all-new black matt carbon fiber bezel. As the carbon fibre is first layered and then machined, the surface of each bezel will be different from the other, thus giving each piece of KLEPCYS DICE RACING its uniqueness.
The open-worked dial features a pleasing three-dimensional architecture that allows to delve into the very heart of this innovative mechanism designed and crafted at the Cyrus Manufacture. The detailing is picked out in red and electric blue, making it easier to read off the chronographic functions. The column wheels, the hands of the chrono counter at 3, the central second hands, the minutes on the flange and the monopusher crowns for engaging the two separate chronographs can thus be seen at a glance.
Both the chrono hands and the second hands are mirrored, with the latter resetting to 12 (red) and 6 (blue).
KLEPCYS DICE RACING is equipped with the Manufacture’s CYR718 automatic calibre which beats at 28,800 vibrations/hour, offering a 60-hour power reserve when fully charged with just one barrel and visibile through the case back thanks to the sapphire crystal porthole. Comprising no less than 443 parts, of which 218 for the double independent chronograph, it is housed in a case which is just 16.5 mm thick: no mean feat when we remember it houses not one but two mainplates, treated with a black PVD and microbeaded finish, for the two chronograph modules.
The KLEPCYS DICE RACING is presented with a bright red Cordura fabric strap and a titanium folding clasp to match the case, and is delivered with an additional strap in soft black rubber.
