Inspiration

The key element for the development of the chronograph model in our collection was to highlight and sublimate the chronograph functions. This is the reason why the chronograph seconds hand is the only one displaying in the centre of the dial while the hour and minute hands of the main time move to 3 o’clock.
By doing this we were able to place the 30-minute and 12-hour counters in vertical position in the centre of the display and let them take central stage, fully satisfying our expectations.

About the Klepcys Skeleton Chronograph Darkness

Reinterpreting the classic functions of a watch is built into CYRUS’ DNA. Strikingly different from conventional chronographs, the Klepcys Chronograph features its very own distinct display on which the center sweeping second, 30-minute, and 12-hour counters take the spotlight on the vertical axis of the dial. This layout allows the main time to sit off-center at 3 o’clock, and a large date window fills the remaining space on the dial at 9 o’clock. This aesthetic endows optimal legibility on all time-telling functions.

As for setting the chronograph, the execution of this timepiece makes it a quick and user-friendly experience, thanks to simple push-buttons on one of the brand’s design signatures, its two crowns. Pressure on the pusher in the crown at 3 o'clock activates the start/stop while the reset is possible through the pusher at 9 o'clock. The positions of the Klepcys Chronograph pushers are closer to those of a professional stop-watch, and therefore offer a more natural handle than more traditional chronographs.

Framed by a 26-component, cushion-shaped case, the beating heart of the Klepcys Chronograph is the self-winding movement, calibre CYR314, offering 48-hour power reserve.
