The high-end Swiss manufacturer unveils its new vision of high-end watchmaking. Cvstos’ beautiful watchmaking tradition and company’s philosophy is always in search of the next great achievement and seeks to expand the offer, whilst maintaining the core values, such as precision, reliability, efficiency, great performance and the utmost comfort of the wearer.
The main motif of the Cvstos Challenge Koi Tourbillon watch is the Koi Carp – the fish that has a powerful and energetic life force which is well-known for swimming against the tide in Asian rivers and waterfall. This fish symbolizes strength, success, perseverance, life, courage, ambition and fertility. The Chinese name of the amazing carp is a synonym of abundance and the image of the Koi carp is often used associated with the wishing of wealth and prosperity.
Cvstos Challenge Koi Tourbillon comes to life through the personalized work carried out by each craftsman contributing to the process of creation. There is a choice of various types of Koi carps to choose from which are then micro painted on the dial with special lacquer which has been chosen by the future owner, thus echoing the Japanese tradition where the master of the house would offer his guests the honor of picking their own Koi carp.
The future owner of the Challenge Koi Tourbillon can choose among different colors, with or without metal impressions, going from orange to deep red, from pure white or still bright yellow, from copper to velvet or metallic patina.
The fully open design of the hand wound caliber CVSTOS CVS 2600C enables currently unique three-dimensionality, adjusting the architecture and the arrangement of the transmission system of the vertical-line wheels, thus freeing two voluminous side spaces.
The flying tourbillon movement is built on 21 jewels, has a power reserve of 60 hours when fully wound and oscillates at the frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz).
This exquisite novelty from Cvstos is housed in a tonneau-shaped case measuring 53.70mm x 41mm. The case combines stainless steel, black steel and 5N gold. There is a choice between black and white models.
The case is shielded with non-reflective double sapphire crystals. From the rear, there is a see-through sapphire crystal case back. The case construction offers water resistance up to 100 meters (approximately 330 feet). Finally, the new Cvstos’ watch is attached to a stylish galuchat (sharkskin) strap.
