Since 2003, Cabestan, independent Swiss watch manufacture develops incredible models of unique and ultra-luxurious timepieces firstly based on its famous vertical oriented movement, real signature brand’s.
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 craftsmen taking their inspiration from the high-tech mechanics, and the use of knowledge ancestral -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, assembled under a microscope, one link at time, allowing the force of the mainspring to be distributed flawlessly. Pieces of the movement are made of German silver, historically use in watchmaking for centuries for its specific physical properties. Cabestan timepieces are produced, finished, assembled, regulated and tested in-house by our own team of talented watchmakers. Building each tourbillon one-by-one. Assembling the miniature chain under a microscope, one link at time. Polishing and adjusting each component, no matter how tiny, with painstaking care and attention.
Exclusive design of movements and cases. Handmade at the manufacture. Customizable. This is traditional watchmaking at its absolute finest. Each model from the collection is available in limited edition.
Cabestan, the Future of Tradition.
