Cabestan, The Future of Tradition…

Cabestan is an independent Swiss watch manufacture born in 2003 to develop incredible models of unique and ultra-luxurious timepieces, firstly based on its famous vertical oriented movement, real signature brand’s Vertical Emotion collection.

The name Cabestan comes from the mechanical concept of the fuse-and-chain with the winch (First iconic model of the brand: Winch Tourbillon Vertical, 2008).

Cabestan DNA finds its definition in the universal history of watchmaking, one of passion, orchestrated by passionate artisans who take their inspiration from the high-tech mechanics, and the use of knowledge ancestral know-how associated with noble materials: Cabestan watches are designed with some of the most historical concept that has been used for more than 450 years. For instance, the extreme precision of the movement is provided by the system of fuse-and-chain, allowing the force of the mainspring to be distributed flawlessly, and pieces of the movement are made of German silver, historically use in watchmaking for centuries in the Vallée de Joux, for its specific physical properties.
