    Any Experience on Cvstos Watch?

    I've known this brand for a long time, but not until recently I started to take interest of its lineup, especially the Sealiner.
    Anybody here has any idea about their company' root? What movement do they mount (in-house / off the shelf ETA, Sellita, etc)? Is there any relation to Franck Muller?
    I've done some digging on the internet but couldn't find much about it.

    CVS350 is claimed to be an in-house movement – the bridges are certainly not the typical style of an ETA 2892, as much as the rotor pivot, jewel count, and regulator would appear to indicate.
    I believe the chronographs are the venerable 7750, so it stands to reason that it’s either a bespoke ebauche from ETA or they make some parts (bridges/main plate, for example) internally, and buy in the rest.

    Nice enough watches, especially the orange Dani Pedrosa model they did a few years ago, but I’d sooner go for the Vanguard from Franck Muller, although the Jet Liner is rather appealing.


    Edit:
    It seems the connection is that the CEO is the son of one of the Co-owners of FM Watchland Group.
    It also seems that Cvstos is now part of the same group, if it hasn’t been since its inception in 2004/5.

    I thought that they're run by a family member of the Franck Muller owners and share some fabrication processes?

    I have one, I love it. I am friends with the Franck Muller group, so every year or so I'll trade between models. I've always had a Franck Muller or Cvstos in my collection. As stated above, Cvstos uses the standard ETA/Valjoux movements. However, their tourbillon and high-complication pieces are predominantly in-house and built in Watchland. Most of the watches are still manufactured in FM's Watchland.

    They’ve got some cool pieces and materials. I find the sizes a bit big, but I like the way they finish movements and skeletonize. Girard Depardieu is a fan, for what it’s worth...

    I was shown a gold and black one at a local jeweler here in Utah who had one in-stock used. Was a little chunky for me so I didn't bother looking at it too closely.
