In a remarkably short time, Kross Studio has cultivated partnerships with global entertainment giants, including Warner Bros. Discovery, HBO, and DC Comics. The brand has also achieved a pioneering collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., becoming the first luxury watchmaker to associate with the beloved Star Wars franchise.

Each partnership with Kross Studio gives rise to a unique Collector Set, featuring a timepiece and an art piece inspired by the dedicated universe. Throughout these projects, the brand has unveiled six distinct watch movements, each tailored precisely to their intended timepieces.

Kross Studio now embarks on a new creative challenge by introducing the first collection of Kross Studio brand timepieces outside of its entertainment partnerships. The KS 05 timepieces are stripped down to their essence to showcase the manufacturer’s ingenuity and technical expertise. They stand as the only timepieces worldwide to feature a central floating tourbillon.

The Ingenious Caliber KS 7’005 Movement

The KS 05 collection spotlights Kross Studio’s commitment to exceptional engineering with its remarkable movement, the calibre KS 7’005. This manual-winding central floating tourbillon, a world-first innovation, consists of 220 components and 27 jewels. Operating at a frequency of 21,600 beats per hour (3 Hz), it boasts a power reserve of 120 hours or 5 days, ensuring precision and longevity.

The innovative positioning of the barrel and the tourbillon on the central axis of the movement offers a captivating view of their intricate mechanics. The tourbillon cage, made of grade 5 titanium for strength and lightness, weighs a mere 0.488g.

The peripheral time display mechanism orbits around the barrel and tourbillon, using a planetary system mounted on two ceramic ball bearings to achieve a reduction ratio between the hour and minute hands.

The Exceptional Case Design

The KS 05 collection exemplifies a new era of luxury timepieces with meticulously designed cases that blend functionality and aesthetics seamlessly. The unique KS 05 Black Meteorite case is constructed from Grade 5 titanium, a material that surpasses stainless steel in strength and durability.

The case design is sleek and ergonomic, devoid of lugs or edges. Instead of a conventional crown at 3 o’clock, Kross Studio has integrated a D-ring crown into the case back, allowing winding and time adjustments without disrupting the watch’s clean lines.

Additionally, the case incorporates a one-click interchangeable strap system hidden on the case back, making it effortless for wearers to customize their watch straps. The minimalist case design places the focus on the watch’s heart – its movement, embodying Kross Studio’s ethos of prioritizing engineering and craftsmanship.

The domed crystal provides a panoramic view of the watch’s inner workings. Its oversized diameter offers an unobstructed view of the meticulously crafted movement and dials rehaut from all angles. The crystal is treated with anti-reflective coatings on both sides and additional anti-UV and anti-static treatments to ensure legibility in all conditions while protecting the watch movement.

Elegant Dials and Materials

The Chronopassion KS 05 edition boasts a dial crafted from Gibeon meteorite, a rare interstellar material with a unique octahedrite iron pattern polished to a subtle sheen. The outer dial, known as the rehaut, seamlessly connects with the case and directs attention to the central floating tourbillon.

The intermediate dial, positioned on the fixed hour wheel, bridges the gap between the outer dial and the watch’s core. The inner dial, with an opening at 9 o’clock, adds depth to the timepiece, providing a clear view of the gear train and a captivating backdrop for the tourbillon.

The broader KS 05 collection offers dials crafted from various materials, including black or blue aventurine glass and natural stones like turquoise, jade, and obsidian. This diverse array of materials allows for personalization and ensures that each timepiece is a unique work of art, reflecting the wearer’s style and spirit.

The KS 05 Collection

With the introduction of the KS 7’005 caliber, Kross Studio redefines luxury timepieces. This manual-winding central floating tourbillon, available in Grade 5 titanium or an 18-karat red gold edition, blends engineering and craftsmanship seamlessly. For those seeking additional luxury, both versions can be adorned with 281 pavé-set D-F VVS1 diamonds, totalling approximately 5.09 carats.

The KS 05 Collection encapsulates Kross Studio’s groundbreaking approach to timekeeping while upholding the core principles of traditional watchmaking. This collection signifies a new era in luxury timepieces, harmonizing artistic craftsmanship, pioneering engineering, and personal expression.

The KS 05 Titanium Black Meteorite Model, available exclusively at Chronopassion Paris, is limited to a single piece. The broader KS 05 collection offers various options in dials, case materials, and diamond embellishments, each limited to 10 numbered pieces.
