Motors MS630 Wryst watch review

A new and never seen before watch case design

One of the most controversial aspects of the Wryst sports watch is the case's overall shape. Rightfully, there is nothing like the unique curves and shapes of the Wryst timepieces in the watchmaking industry. Firstly, Swiss watch designer Jacques Fournier is at the origin of all watches produced by Wryst until this day. Here we will review all the aspects of the first Wryst Airborne collection released in April 2012. Since then, the same design has inspired other collections. For example, the Wryst Automatic Watches, Wryst Chronograph Force, Wryst Quartz Watches Ultimate, and Wryst Sports Watches Elements.

Understanding the inspiration behind the brand's DNA

In 2010, strong of long experience designing luxury watches, Fournier decided to launch his brand. His love and fascination for watches were rather frustrating. Young was desperately looking for a watch with a more technical and industrial aspect. At the time, he found most of the timepieces available were too classic and identical in look from one to another. But through the years, designing modern and inspired watches for other brands was not enough. There was a gap in the market that he would fill. Creating a unique and "never seen before" sports watch produced in limited edition made total sense and would fulfill his dreams. In this Wryst watch review about the timepieces, we will look at every aspect of the watch design origin.


Racing car engines offer unlimited creative potential

Action sports and racing oriented, it was logical for the new watch brand to look at engine parts. The watch's body then started slowly to take shape with that in mind. The flank of the case could, for example, reflect the stunning aesthetical look of engine manifold and dented wheels.

Car engine intake manifold

The curves and segmented 'comb' of a six-cylinder V6 or eight-cylinder V8 car racing engine just looked stunning. After a few hand sketches, the 3D CAD construction soon started. Jacques Fournier should use a few design novelties to create innovative features never seen previously in the watch industry.


Wryst bracelet attachement design


The integrated bracelet attachment to the body was an essential aspect of the casing. A timepiece accidentally detached from the wrist is something that should never happen. This eventuality could lead to losing the watch unintentionally. Conventional watch case lugs are not precisely safe enough.

Wryst imagined and developed a new way to morph the integrated bracelet between the two body lugs to avoid this being even possible. This ingenuous hallmark consists of four screws and four decorative rings to secure the watch around the arm like never been attempted before.

Cam shaft car engine part

It made sense for the Wryst sports watch to imagine a way to improve this. The technical and secure four-part screw system came to life naturally. A car engine camshaft inspired this particular design. A domed case top and curved crystal also provide unforeseen harmony and comfort around the wrist, which most timepieces are not providing.

Several months of intense work are required to produce an excellent and harmonious aesthetical balance for the watch case design. The choice of Swiss chronograph movement and dial design creation could then start accordingly with this DNA. Most round-face watches use "cold stamped" tooling or "Punch press" techniques. Due to the intricate and sophisticated design of the Wryst casing, CNC machining technology is used (Computer Numerical Control). CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves using computers to control machine tools. Tooling techniques include lathes, mills, routers, and grinders. Making the Wryst cases is higher than for regular round watches. These skills represent another signature asset for the visionary brand Wryst.


Numerous facts, realities, and details for this unique review


In this Wryst review, we can also reveal the motto of watch designer Jacques Fournier and his most essential intentions:

“Wryst design represents “THE” unique and atypical timepiece I have always wanted, and I hope it is for many people who see it. My intention was to create a timeless design you can not get bored of. A watch of which people would say: “I have never seen anything like it before…” and targeting a sporty audience with a strong & charismatic personality".

Racing, motorsports, and outdoors are not new sources of inspiration in the watch industry. But Jacques Fournier opted for an objective approach. He wants people to feel like they were wearing part of their machinery for their exalting sensations. For example, we all want to wear a tangible reminder of our passions in life, from buggies of the sandy beach dunes, wingsuits, racing cars, motocross, dragsters, and even snowboards.


Another pertinent approach from the executive owner, founder, and designer at Wryst timepieces:

“Others have ideas and do things very well, but the main focus should be to look elsewhere, where no one has ever looked, be daring and sincere. I think individualism is extremely important, you can be copied, but try not to be compared".

It is another witty statement from Jacques Fournier, who is genuinely inspired and passionate about innovative watches. The original design from Wryst came to life between 2010 and 2012. The Motors chronograph collection's unique racing style is highly noticeable for the Isle of Man government in 2015. The TT races sponsorship management team contacted the brand to discuss official timing partnerships with the world's fastest road racing. Only three years after the first Wryst watches were on the market, the brand released a unique TT chronograph watch with authorized copyright usage of the TT logo featured on the watch dial and the Isle of Man triskelion emblem engraved in 3D on the case back. This exclusive and highly-collectible timepiece came to life in a special edition after the launch of another design version with a larger 50mm casing. It was similar in style to the earliest Wryst chronograph Force and Wryst Motors for racing the following years.


In his interview about the inspiration behind the watch design, Wryst, the creator, also revealed:

“At a young age, I was spending a lot of time looking at luxury timepieces in watch boutiques in Geneva or anywhere I would go. I had only one goal, to find a very unique one which would totally overdo all the other ones, and save up and buy it".

Rightfully, the Wryst is like no other watch ever produced before, and this will most likely still be true forever. The watch case sides resembling oblong race car steering wheels, the large bracelets with double injection in two colors, and many other aspects of the timepieces are merely remarkable.


The watch brand name and logo, one of the most important element

This atypical luxury sports watch brand is Wryst, spelled with a "Y." But the name is pronounced exactly like the word "wrist." A brand name needs to be catchy and also remembered. Therefore this name can be recalled effortlessly. Most noticeably, a Wryst watch is different than any other wristwatch. A manifold inspires the triangular shape of the logo. A manifold is a "collection of points forming a certain kind of set." Graphically, the logo is a repetition of three times one of the arms of the shape, around the central axis:

This logo was obtained geometrically within CAD drawing software. It does not represent a Ninja weapon, as many would think. This hallmark also has a story to tell, like every other feature found within the intricate and trailblazing designs created by Wryst.


We hope you learned more about the Wryst watch design and the inspiration that makes the atypical brand unique.

Este diseño es muy único y hermoso. Me gusta la forma de la carcasa y cómo se curva desde la vista lateral. El rostro es deportivo y muy bien hecho. Para la protección de DLC negro, esto también es una gran mejora. ¡Muy bien hecho por ti!

I received my Wryst MS630 last week and it looks really catchy! The overall shape is truly different than other designs in my high-end Swiss only collection. I would highly recommend Wryst for a piece looking unique. Customer service was very good and they have offered me the carbon fiber bracelet so now I have three different ones to play with. Do not hesitate - They told me stocks are getting low for this reference. Cheers for the great contact with sales department.

Great topic and very informative thanks!

"Bold and racy" they say! Well I can confirm they are chunky watches to wear but still very comfortable on your arm. It only took me two days to even forget I was wearing it. Then when you check the time it's a beautiful shape every single time with a lovely busy and colourful dial. I wish the liminova was much more stronger, but what watch offers strong reading in the dark nowadays? Really great effort and at a much more affordable price than the average "futurstic" Swiss designer watches available out there. Thanks again.

Absolutely amazing design, but it is likely I will not be able to afford to wear one of these beauty any day soon.

By Edward 08/10/2023 11:05:46

I had an great experience with the impeccable customer service from Wryst. Your products are stunning and I will purchase a second timepiece soon. I had bad experiences with other reputable Swiss brands before and I was really pleased to find the right help with my specific requests. Thank you again.

This is how other brands should talk about their products. I find this post very detailed and it gives exact facts about the origin of the Wryst brand DNA which is great. But I see you are only covering this particular model Wryst Motors. I also find that the case was similar with previous references which are now discontinued since only produced in small series. My recommendation is that you extend your retail points and boost your brand exposure budget because this particular design could be a total success. You should make much bigger series too! I do not undertsand the idea behind the very exclusive small editions of only 75 pieces. Heads up for the Isle of Man TT sponsorship which I think was a strike of genius. These are designer watches and they deserve more Wryst review. You need people to talk more about them. But you can possibly only achieve this with much more exposure worldwide. In conclusion I would say that if the brand was producing more volumes it would make me feel more confident buying this stunning watch. This is my humble views on this post. Really, really great efforts and the Motors collection is stunning and fit for the 21st century!

Hello, I received the fantastic Wryst Motors timepiece I bought yesterday. The watch is unique and stunning, a classic! The quality, design and weight of the piece is there for all to see and admire. The service and dedication I received from the staff was top class all the way through. What a wonderful and fantastic company to deal with through their sales manager Joanne. Worth her weight in gold to this company. Five star treatment all the way through from a five star company. I cannot praise them enough, Very Happy with my purchase and I will keep an eye on their website to see their next classic creation! Many thanks and best regards to all concerned, A. Ryan.

After buying my MS630 I was interested to know how this totally mind-blowing design was even possible and found this page. The story behind this creation is very interesting and I am glad I have done this research. I understand more now about the different aspects of the watch shape and the concept is exceptional. Congratulations to the creator of this unique piece which I enjoy wearing everyday and receive many comments for. I already plan to buy the steel version very soon. Thank you again for offering these unique motorsport timepieces. Ludvig.

Ma lei è bella. Un orologio con questo stile di design che non avevo mai visto prima. Sono tutti bellissimi bravo.

I have never seen any other watch brand give so much details about the origin of designs. Always been a fan but I am still trying to save enough for the higher-end models. Great story to tell thank you.

By George 04/03/2023 07:45:52

Thank you for this thorough review about the watch design Wryst. I must say you have made a lot of efforts there to make a watch that looks truly different.

By Jordan 03/31/2023 17:33:55

Astonishing design! The engines mechanical parts you have used to inspire the watch design are definitaly showing. Well executed watchmaking inspired by motorsports in my view. Good on you

By Craig 03/21/2023 22:27:36

Nice to be able to find out more about the inspiration behind the design of this exquisite timepiece! I have the first airborne FW4 they produced and the shoreline LX5 in rose gold. Both watches are absolutely stunning. I have many compliments, especially telling me how incredible is the design. Wryst must make many jealous people in the industry at this price range for very limited editions. Saving now to buy my third timepiece. Not sure yet between the SX270 or if I should jump for one of the Motors models. Thank you again. Craig
