An Exceptional Timepiece. The Lotus Tourbillon By Alain Silberstein

Kross Studio and famed designer Alain Silberstein collaborate on serene new timepiece design

New Lotus Tourbillon Revealed Ahead of Dubai Watch Week

Kross Studio continues the design house’s successful streak of collaborations and partnerships with its latest venture, this time partnering with renowned designer Alain Silberstein. In the summer of 2021, Silberstein contacted Kross Studio to discuss his vision for a lotus-inspired timepiece that would capture the essence of the sacred Asian flower. A brief initial meeting between Silberstein and Kross Studio Founder Marco Tedeschi turned into a crossfire of ideas and a formal plan to bring the Lotus Tourbillon to life using the Kross Studio central tourbillon (the KS 7’000 caliber).

Alain Silberstein: “I was blown away by the first central vortex created by Kross Studio which depicted the Death Star from Star Wars. Curious, I made an appointment to get to know this talented team. I thought our first meeting would last about an hour. Four hours later, we were still in a meeting, creating what would become the Lotus Tourbillon. What was supposed to be just a first contact turned into a creative meeting.”
