SwissKubiK, keeping watches in motion! These highly desirable cubes has come to the 2022 watchmaking scene with new colors, like this trendy ‘Tiffany’ turquoise
This stylish cube is quite an institution. It first appeared more than 15 years ago, and was immediately approved by the most prestigious watchmaking brands, both for its uncluttered aesthetic and for its reliable technology. SwissKubiK is constantly attracting collectors and watchmaking brands of excellence. Also the true amateurs of interior design who use it, alone or in several, as the ultimate construction and decoration of their homes.
SwissKubiK, a hightech package manufactured in Switzerland
It puts all of us into agreement, first of all with its sharp-edged square aesthetic, its pure design symmetry. Then, because it is powered by a specific Swiss made electric engine, protected from any magnetic nuisance, absolutely silent and reliable. A micro-motor driven by a smart card that requires very little energy, since the autonomy, when not of solar source, is of at least three years, from two simple batteries. Finally, it can be easily programmed and monitored from a cell phone via an intelligent Bluetooth or from a Mac or a PC with an USB plug.
When a mechanical watch is endowed with a rotor (oscillating mass) which, thanks to its owner’s movements, is self-powered, it deserves to remain always in motion. It is essential for the lubricants to last, for its micromechanical health, for its durability and reliability. It is a matter of saving on maintenance.
«Les montres ont une âme, il est vital d’en prendre soin»
Overall, and despite the many improvements in the quality of oils and materials, the problem of lubricating mechanical calibers has been a source of creativity and ingenuity for watchmakers for over 200 years. The SwissKubiK watch winder keeps an automatic watch, or even a perpetual calendar watch for the most experienced, on the move without ever having to be constantly activated. By alternating life cycles and rest cycles, it helps to increase the watch’s life span and reliability by providing a kind of continuous “maintenance service”. Programmable, manageable from a cell phone or a computer.
Multiple versions, universal or personal messages
Mechanical watches with automatic winding are everywhere. On your desks, in your drawers, in the dressers of your friends and family, sometimes even in your bank’s safe deposit boxes. The SwissKubiK, beyond its usefulness in terms of the care given to a time- piece, is suitable for all types of decorations. Its symmetry, its faces directly inspired by the universal standards of purity, offer themselves to chameleonic approaches as well as to advanced customizations. And why not to one or more personal messages as an ultimate attention in these times when luxury sins by excess of uniqueness.
