So, here’s my avant-garde timepiece of the week: the Kuros from watchmakers Cyrus, out of Geneva, Switzerland. This is a new collection to me, but one that has impressed me with its unique aesthetic, use of materials and is a collection that is driven by strong design concepts.
Just look at the silhouette of this baby…It’s got that sleek, automotive profile, one that evokes speed, low drag and more. If I may be so bold, I’m even inclined to propose that this timepiece be married up with the Lotus Evora (pictured below).
If you happen to be at the Geneva Auto Show in March, you can appreciate the Lotus “in the flesh”, and then possibly take a Cyrus timepiece for a ride as well. Enjoy!!
