A mechanical watch that can change its face: this year’s Geneva Watch Days welcomes Byrne, the latest brand to join the vibrant independent scene of Switzerland. Their debutante, the GyroDial, changes its four cardinal indexes, composed of Arabic and Roman numerals, instantly at midnight or by the push of a button. There is also the possibility to choose a bespoke character, symbol, or design for this animated complication to be displayed on the black or blue galvanic dial with a vertical satin-brushed finish that indicates the hours and minutes.
The bold, slightly elongated and cushion-shaped case exudes a contemporary, sleek aesthetic and has a diameter of 42 x 15.6mm. The watch is available in stainless steel or titanium and houses a genuine self-winding caliber custom made by the Le Temps Manufacture based in Le Fleurier. The movement amasses a power reserve of 60 hours and is equipped with a customized rotor and finished in-line with high Swiss standards.
Pricing for the Byrne GryoDial starts at 16,000 CHF without taxes, or about $16,400.
