Cabestan Nostromo Watch - Revolutionary Watchmaking Novelty

Apr 26, 2010
The famous watchmaking house Cabestan is delighted to unveil its intriguing Nostromo watch. The brainchild of Jean-Francois Ruchonnet and Eric Coudray, known as “the masters of revolutionary watchmaking”, this watch has been encouraged by the world of science fiction, and the famous film Alien to be exact.

The mind-blowing horological novelty is available with a black PVD-treated titanium case, fitted with two lateral sapphire crystals and a sapphire back. It features a functional capstan with an extractible crown and three decorative capstans.

The case of the Cabestan watch is also assembled with a metalized, thermally-moulded Pyrex sapphire crystal, which shows off vertical wheels and drums, as well as the distinctive articulated drive shaft. The last-mentioned element is utilized to deliver energy to the manually-wound movement - CAB PG 160 calibre. Embellished with 37 jewels, the heart of the watch beats at the rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour and boasts a 50-hour power reserve.

The movement serves to display hours, minutes and seconds on the engraved rotating drums. It also brings to life the power reserve indicator and the jumping hour function. Apart from anchoring the wheels, the bridges incorporated into the movement wrap around the hour, minute and seconds drums, power reserve and barrel to make them easy to read.

The inside of the bridges, windows and surfaces of the movement are treated with a fine phosphorescent coating. It emits a yellow-green light, which illuminates the mechanism.

The Cabestan Nostromo watch is presented on a rubber strap, double treated with Superluminova. The strap is closed with a folding clasp.
