tall, dark and handsome

Shrouded in a mysterious black, the new Klepcys Chronograph in DLC-coated titanium and steel (S$21,800) is a sleek, cool addition to the Cyrus family. Although the model represents a new era for the independent watchmaker under a new management, it retains two signature elements of the brand – the unique case shape that is a mix between the cushion and tonneau, as well as the two symmetrically positioned crowns on both sides of the case.

What’s new – and not just to Cyrus, but in watchmaking history as well – is the unique presentation of the chronograph functions. Conventional chronographs typically have three subdials that sit at three, six and nine o’clock.

On the Klepcys Chronograph, the minutes and hours counters are at 12 and six o’clock respectively, while the time display is on a bigger subdial at three o’clock. Running from seven to 11 o’clock is a linear date indicator.

The timepiece is a substantial 46mm and has a 48-hour power reserve.
