There’s hardly been a shortage of emerging brands that claim to be involved in Haute Horlogerie as of late, but CVSTOS stands out from them all. The company’s name (which comes from the Latin word for Guardian) communicates its passionate devotion to the art of traditional watchmaking, and so does its slogan – The Time Keeper. Traditionalism, however, doesn’t prevent them from being uniquely innovative.
CVSTOS’s timepieces are hand-crafted in a mid-sized atelier located in Geneva’s Saint Gervais district. It is housed in a classic shop-fronted building at the foot of Rue Voltaire, where the brand’s Operations department is also located. The building’s ground floor is home to a concept store that is used to host exclusive soirées, where only a CVSTOS watch can grant one access. While this certainly boosts the perceived exclusivity of the brand, its masterfully crafted creations more than live up to the image it strives to project. The watch on offer here is just one such creation.
This CVSTOS Challenge for GP Chronograph showcases a masterful blend of traditional watchmaking and cutting-edge design.
In much the same way, its steel case showcases an equally impressive combination of brushed and polished surfaces covered in black PVD. As your eyes have surely already informed you, its geometry is somewhat reminiscent of a Richard Mille, but it clearly stands out as its own thing. At 41 mm in diameter and 15 mm thick, the Challenge for GP is smaller than most of the brand’s offerings, allowing for a dapper look and comfortably fitting wrists of most sizes. The crown is fitted with a rubber lining that provides additional grip and complements the blue accents. The skeletonized dial proudly showcases the cal. CVSTOS 577 inside, but the exhibition caseback provides a much better vista. The in-house movement was thoroughly inspected by our watchmaker and found to be ticking per spec.
Our offering is in very good condition, with some minor scratches here and there, but nothing too deep or worrying, the only thing worth mentioning the back side of one the pushers – it was dinged at some point and its somewhat warped (functions properly, but the steel shows under the coating. Comes in a full set of boxes and papers, and is outfitted with its original integrated rubber strap. Ticking per specs.
Covered by a limited warranty of 1 year, starting on the date of purchase.
