CMXI – classic car inspired watches

Watchmaker Cursus Victus has a crowdfunding campaign on the go to fund the production of the multiple dialled CMXI. Designed to resemble parts from classic sports cars of the 1970s. We love this new wave of car inspired watches that seem to be popping up these days.

Entrepreneur and 3D designer Torgeir Sanders came up the concept of a watch that matched his taste in classic cars. Porsche was a particular inspiration when in came to the design. Sanders incorporated the famous racing car “red line” into the main dial. The rest of the watch echoes the stylings from vintage racing gloves and old school fuel gauges. The Latin phrase “ amare et sapere vix deo conceditur” is engraved on every watch. Its meaning is something every petrol head will relate to – “Even a god finds it hard to love and be reasonable at the same time”.

Here’s the technical bit: 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.
