It may not look like a chronograph but it is one. The Cyrus Klepcys Chronograph works like a regular chronograph but what is different is in how the chronograph is started, stopped and reset.

Reading the elapsed time when using the chronograph is different as well. The chronograph minutes counter is at the 12 o’clock position while the chronograph hour counter is at the 6 o’clock position.

The Cyrus Klepcys Chronograph features a central chronograph seconds hand.

There are two distinct crowns on the Klepcys Chronograph – the one at 3 o’clock is for starting and stopping the chronograph while the crown at 9 o’clock is the reset pusher.

 

 

 

 

At the 9 o’clock position is the date indicator and a rotating disc which functions like a sweep seconds counter.

The Cyrus Klepcys Chronograph is original in looks and design as it is powered by an in-house automatic movement, the Calibre CYR314, the result of the collaboration between the brand and watchmaker Jean-François Mojon.
