Kross Studio unveils 8 awe-inspiring stone-studded masterpieces

Each edition of the KS 05 watches is limited to just 10 pieces.

Kross Studio, known for pushing the boundaries of horological design, has channeled its boundless creativity into eight distinct new floating central tourbillon timepieces, each adorned with exquisite mineral dials. This new collection of 45mm wristwatch models is a visual and mechanical marvel, featuring stone dials crafted from sodalite, mahogany obsidian, violet jade, specular hematite, malachite, lapis lazuli, maw sit sit jade, and ruby.

Each material is chosen not only for its stunning visual appeal but also for its unique properties and the meticulous craftsmanship required to incorporate it into a timepiece.

The new series of eight mineral dial variations perfectly complements Kross Studio’s existing KS 05 models in blue and black Aventurine glass.

The watch is powered by the patented caliber KS 7’005, a manual-winding floating central tourbillon conceived by the brand’s founder, Marco Tedeschi. This signature achievement is designed, manufactured, finished, and assembled in-house. Its architecture comprises 220 components, including 27 jewels. The barrel allows the watch to maintain a power reserve of 120 hours with impressive chronometric performance. The ultra-light floating tourbillon cage, weighing just 0.488 grams, is crafted from grade 5 titanium.

Kross Studio KS-05 timepieces with precious stones

The collection’s timepieces showcase a masterful design through their dials, which are intricately crafted in three distinct sections, each contributing to the overall functionality and aesthetic appeal. The outermost section, the rehaut, is directly affixed to the case and features the hour markers and minute track, ensuring optimal readability and a seamless visual transition from the case to the dial’s core.

This thoughtful design draws the viewer’s attention towards the watch’s intricate inner workings. The intermediate dial, mounted atop the movement on the fixed hour wheel, serves as a cohesive link between the outer dial and the watch’s intricate mechanisms, enhancing both functionality and visual harmony.

Finally, the inner dial, with an opening at 9 o’clock, is secured to the main plate of the movement. This section lies beneath the floating tourbillon and hour display mechanism, providing a clear view of the gear train. This design element not only adds depth but also creates a dramatic stage for the tourbillon, highlighting its precise engineering and intricate craftsmanship.

With the introduction of these new stone dial models, the current Kross Studio KS 05 collection now boasts 10 distinct dial variations, each limited to only 10 pieces.
