the prestigious Swiss watchmaking house, renowned for its timepieces characterised by an atypical 3D architecture and innovative movements conceived by our master watchmaker Jean-François Mojon, is honoured to sustain the 9th edition of the charity auction ONLY WATCH for the benefit of research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
The event, under the patronage of his Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and its founder and organiser Luc Pettavino, will take place on November 6th 2021 – under the hammer of Christie’s – at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva.
Cyrus is pleased to support this worthy initiative with the unique piece “KLEPCYS DICE ONLY WATCH”, a brand-new model featuring a double independent monopusher chronograph.
The term DICE is the acronym of Double Independent Chronograph Evolution. As its name indicates, it is an evolution of the traditional chronograph.
An innovative technical development, our master watchmaker, Jean-François Mojon, has transformed it into a double chronograph capable of measuring two short intervals of time independently or in synchrony. However, it should not be confused with the rattrapante version, where the two hands track the time of two events that start simultaneously but end at different times or indicate an intermediate elapsed time.
The motivation behind the creation of KLEPCYS DICE ONLY WATCH comes directly from the world of sports.
As Jean-François Mojon explains: “This modern chronograph is the result of a deep reflection on the role of timing in sports competitions. In many sports, it is often important to measure elapsed times with different starting times. This occurs, for example, in races like marathons or biathlons where athletes do not cross the starting line at the same time or in car rallies, where it is common to use two independent chronographs. KLEPCYS DICE ONLY WATCH facilitates this operation thanks to the two monopusher crowns, which are essential to avoid any unwanted manipulation.”
