Available in a limited edition of 88 pieces, the Klepcys collection by Cyrus pays tribute to the ancient city of Babylon and its many legends.
Decked out in 18-carat red gold or 18-carate grey gold, the case is brushed with Grade 5 titanium, topped off with a DLC finish. The visible screws, while paying tribute to the three-part Cyrus brand logo, is evocative of the locks of Babylon’s city walls.
At the heart of the watch lies a patented mechanism that boasts three exceptional functions.
The retrograde hand moves along the 180° axis and changes colour depending on the time of day. Regardless of the hand’s position, the minute and second discs are always aligned and accurate during the linear reading of time. This patented alignment is based on a one-of-a-kind mechanism which controls the speed of the (retrograde and rotating) hour, minute, and second wheels.
Next comes the date. The units digits (from 0 to 9) rest one on top of the other, while the tens digits change before the units digits. Once the tens digit reaches the figure 9, the figure moves in retrograde and rotates by 90 degrees. This simultaneously opens the space for the next tens digits placed before ‘0’.
To boost collector’s value, the case back of every Klepcys watch contains an identical copy of an ancient coin, said to be fashioned during the reign of King Cyrus 2500 years ago.
The Klepcys collection is exclusively available at Masterpiece by King Fook.
