After three years of research and development, the stunning Cyrus Klepcys watch is finally ready to be sold at this year’s Only Watch charity auction. With a patented mechanism, this is the first watch ever to show time in a linear way. The hours, minutes and seconds are shown with exact precision on the left side of the dial.
The upper right side is where the large date subdial is located, with its 3D rotating tens, while the lower right side is where the moon phase is shown. This however is no ordinary moon phase display: it’s a mechanism with a 3D miniature moon that is gradually covered by a patch to show each phase. When the moon is completely covered, the watchmaker’s logo appears.
For this amazing timepiece, the main material is 18K gold, but stainless steel and even 37 rubies are also present. The 48mm case (including crowns) holds inside a CYR598 automatic movement with a power reserve of over 40 hours. Take a look at the video below to better understand how this awesome one-off watch works.
