Cyrus Klepcys GMT Palm Edition

Cyrus Klepcys GMT Palm Edition for 10TenLabs Two exclusive limited editions are inspired by traditional Saudi architecture.

10TenLabs is a digital retailer based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that operates a hybrid online business - offering physical events in a walk-in lounge/gallery format, as well as a club dedicated to showcasing independent watchmakers. To celebrate the opening of its gallery in Saudi Arabia, 10TenLabs has partnered with independent watchmaker Cyrus to launch the Klepcys GMT Palm Najid and Hijaz editions. Both exclusive limited editions draw inspiration from traditional Saudi architecture. The salmon version reflects the tones of traditional houses in the Najd region, while the blue version is inspired by the vibrant turquoise doors of traditional houses in the Hijaz region.

Both limited edition watches are derived from the classic Cyrus Klepcys GMT. The 42mm cushion-shaped case is made of grade 5 titanium and has dual crowns. Although its display may be confusing at first glance, this user-friendly GMT watch indicates local time via traditional central hour and minute hands, while home time is displayed via a 24-hour retrograde hand, making it very intuitive and practical in real life. practical.

The Salmon Najid version features an electroplated palm-shaped cutout upper bridge, while the Hijaz version features a Turquoise Blue ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) coating. The hour numerals sit elegantly on a sapphire ring, creating the illusion of floating above the dial. The angled minute flange features a luminous five-minute indicator. The retrograde hand with a triangular luminous tip for easy reading indicates the second time zone on a 24-hour lacquered ring. Adjustment of the second time zone is conveniently accomplished via the crown at 9 o’clock. Finally, the spiral small seconds hand is reminiscent of the Cyrus logo, with one arm filled with luminous material to enhance visibility.

The Klepcys GMT is powered by the automatic movement CYR708, made in-house by Cyrus. The independent watchmaking brand's workshop is located in Le Locle and is led by Jean-François Mojon. It is located in the same building as Chronode, Mojon’s movement development and production company. This large 38mm movement runs at 4 Hz and has a power reserve of 55 hours from a single barrel. The exquisite skeletonized dial and exhibition case back give us a glimpse of this movement. The oscillating weight adopts a hollow design, echoing the palm design of the dial. Finishes include NAC-treated bridges with sunburst patterns, sandblasted finishes and bevelled edges.

The Cyrus Klepcys GMT x 10tenlabs edition comes with a gray Cordura strap with black stitching. It secures to the wrist via a titanium folding clasp with the Cyrus logo. Comes with spare black rubber strap.
