Designed in Norway, the CMXI watch is an innovative men’s chronograph that pays homage to the iconic sports cars of the 1970's. It has a classic stainless steel design with a matte black finish case and a beautiful dial arrangement creates a timeless presence on your wrist.
Inspired by the design of classic rev counters and speedometers, racing gloves and oil gauges, we've created a watch aimed at classic car enthusiasts.
Having the single main hand to tell the time was one of our first must haves and it reflects the design of a classical rev counter or speedometer. With a matching redline at 12 o´clock.
Inspired by the rows of holes typically found on vintage racing gloves, we have given the CMXI a unique look with two sets of large holes running all the way around the strap.
A sandwich design to the watch where the top dial actually moves behind the main dial. The quarter top dial inspired by old gas/oil gauges.
All the writings on the watch are in Latin or Roman Numerals. Surrounding the main dial is the Latin phrase “ amare et sapere vix deo conceditur”, which basically means “Even a god finds it hard to love and be reasonable at the same time”. A phrase we think most classic car enthusiasts can relate to this when it comes to the time and money spent on our passion.

From the Latin translation roughly meaning "The racing way of life", we are a small outfit situated just outside the Norwegian capitol of Oslo.
Being highly passionate about all forms of design it was really important to us that apart from the movement, all parts of the watch were designed by us and produced only for this watch. There are no shortcuts with the CMXI.
Cursus Victus was established in 2015 by Torgeir Sanders, a bootstrap designer and entrepreneur with a big passion for anything old with an engine and some beautiful lines to it.
All watches are designed in Norway and assembled in Hong Kong.
Once the campaign finishes, we'll collect backer preferences and place our order. We will keep in touch with you but expect delivery in January 2017!
Risks and challenges
Although we´re working with a professional manufacturer to assemble the watches, there´s always the posiblity there might be slight delays somewhere in the production line. We are working closely with them and will do what we can to meet the expected delivery dates :)
Such charges will probably apply to where you live, and as such you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.
We'll keep you posted on all fronts :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
