Inspired by sports cars from the 70’s, this is the watch drivers need to wear
Cursus Victus launched Kickstarter campaign to fund their micro watch brand inspired by sports cars. On September 29 2016, Cursus Victus launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the production of the multiple dialled CMXI watch. Designed to resemble parts from classic sports cars of the 1970’s, this watch is both unique and functional.
Entrepreneur and 3D designer Torgeir Sanders came up the concept of a watch that matched his taste of Porsche and other classic cars. He incorporated the famous racing car “red line” into the main dial, fuel gauges and vintage racing gloves inspired the rest of the CMXI design.
The Latin phrase on the watch“ amare et sapere vix deo conceditur” means “Even a god fnds it hard to love and be reasonable at the same time” is a phrase car enthusiasts can relate to when it comes to the time and money spent on their passion.
CMXI watches are made from 364L stainless steel, sandblasted with black PVD plating and a screw in case back. The case measures 45mm wide x 11mm height, 24mm strap made from Italian cowhide, stainless steel lugs, sandwich dials, water resistant to 3 ATM, fat sapphire cover and Citizen Miyota 6SA2 movement. Each watch has the CMXI logo on the front and engraved on back case.
The Cursus Victus CMXI watches launched on the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter on September 29th 2016 for a 30 day campaign until October 29th 2016. The campaign already reached it’s goal of kr230,000 (Approx $28,600 USD) in less than 2 days of the initial launch.
