Introduction

Independent watchmaking has undergone a much-deserved surge in popularity in recent years that has seen brands like MB&F, F.P. Journe, and several others grow into near-household names. With this new-found growth, independent watchmakers are becoming increasingly confident in their ability to push the envelope and create exciting timepieces. Front and center of that trend is Cyrus, the Swiss independent watchmaker founded in 2010. Dedicated to the “enthusiasm of Haute Horlogerie,” Cyrus has made a name for themselves by creating interesting timepieces like the Klepcys GMT Retrograde that we have here. Launched in 2022, the Klepcys is a 42mm cushion-shaped timepiece made of titanium that features cutting-edge horological technology. With a sleek blacked-out aesthetic derived from its DLC coating, the Klepcys boasts a blue lacquered hometime chapter ring and a blue three-spoked hand for its running second subdial. Indeed, aside from these pops of color, the Klepcys’ dial is completely openworked, showcasing the incredible in-house automatic cal. CYR708 found within that powers the Klepcys’ retrograde GMT display as the GMT hand snaps back from 24 to the 24 on the other side of the dial at midnight. An intriguing exploration of modern horological styling and mechanics, Klepcys GMT Retrograde distills exactly what independent watchmaking is all about into one stunning timepiece.
