A relatively young watch brand in every way, the Swiss brand Cvstos was founded in 2005 with the aim of creating technical and contemporary timepieces. The brand has regularly attracted the attention of collectors with its daring three-dimensional pieces that display complications and great aesthetics. Today, the brand unveils its new collection: Re-Belle. The elegant watch is designed for the person who wants to indulge in diamonds and precious stones, as well as the mysterious and beautiful function of the moon phase indication.
The Cvstos Re-Belle is designed to pay homage to women, but in today’s world we know that a watch like this can appeal to many audiences. It combines technical sophistication with lavish personality. Better yet, this is a watch that offers exclusivity, as only a limited edition of the stainless steel versions and 18k gold models will be made.
Each Re-Belle watch is a bold barrel-shaped watch that is ergonomically curved for ultimate comfort. The three-dimensional design features a dial recessed into the watch, the case of which seems to cradle and protect it. The moon phase indication occupies the entire center of the dial and the engraved and sculpted moon revolves around the central circle of the dial, visible through a lower disc in the upper part of the orb. In some versions, the central dial is outlined with diamonds or precious stones, while in others it is engraved in gold, but the lower part of the central orb is paved with diamonds.
The dials are offered in sparkling white mother-of-pearl or sparkling blue aventurine (depending on the model) for opulent nighttime appeal. All versions have diamond markers. Even the discreet date window, located at 6 o’clock on the dial, suggests a game of time and, perhaps, a date. As if that wasn’t enough, because when diamonds are too much, Cvstos adorns the entire case of each piece with diamonds or a rainbow of precious stones. The remarkable snow setting uses stones of different sizes to pave the metal and only let the stones shine. The diamond versions are all premium diamonds, while the painter’s colorful gemstone palette uses a plethora of rich sapphires.
The Cvstos Re-Belle is powered by the CVS 882 self-winding mechanical caliber which is also visible through a transparent sapphire crystal case back. The movement offers 38 hours of power reserve. The 4Hz movement is also equipped with a quick date corrector. Thanks to a screw-set crown, the watches are all water resistant to 100 meters. The finishing touch to each watch is an alligator strap in a coordinating shade, or a white rubber strap for a ‘sporty’ appeal is also available for the stainless steel model. The special thing about this sporty rubber strap is that it also has links adorned with diamonds, which moves it with a simple push of a thumb over it.
The snow-set diamond version with mother-of-pearl dial is only available in 5N pink gold and is set with 361 diamonds weighing 3.90 carats. The diamond version with aventurine dial is available in steel and gold and is set with 311 diamonds weighing 3.70 carats. The rainbow version set with snow with colored sapphires is available with only the dial in aventurine and stainless steel or in 18k gold. It comprises 327 snow-set sapphires and 12 diamonds for the indexes for a total weight of 4.80 carats.
Only 50 pieces of the barrel-shaped watch (36mm x 47.2mm) will be made of stainless steel, each priced at CHF 30,000 (approx. $ 32,500) in diamonds or sapphires, and 50 pieces will be made in 18k 5N rose gold priced at CHF 45,000 (approx. $ 48,000).
