Cvtos is one of those Swiss watch brands that I’ve know about but never really got to know until recently. The brand has often been involved with the Franck Muller Group but, as I understand it, operates separately under independent ownership by Mr. Sassoun Sirmakes, or at least is run independently. With that said, the brand’s mostly tonneau-style shaped cases and overall wrist presence is similar to many of Franck Muller’s most popular items – albeit with a much more modern flair. In some ways, I’ve often dismissed Cvstos without giving the brand much of a chance, but seeing the watches hands-on, I’ve been able to appreciate a lot of the cool stuff that they do. Prices aren’t insane (relatively speaking), and the overall quality and finishing is pretty good. So let’s take a look at some of the watches in their Challenge Chrono II collection hands-on.
