Belvedere Danube

A blue as deep as the famous river – held in timeless blue, the Belvedere Danube looks equally sporty as classic. A unique water-resistant automatic watch designed to be worn for jumping into the blue Danube as well as at a business lunch.

The elegant sports watch is available in four other versions.

The CSS201 caliber, based upon a Dubois Dépraz, delivers 42 hours of power reserve. The case back, made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, shows the gold-plated rotor featuring the micro-engraved facade of the magnificent Belvedere Palace.

The high-end stainless-steel case is subtly animated by the interplay of polished and satin-finished surfaces. Water resistance up to one-hundred meters thanks to the screw-down crown.

The “Jumping Date” changes its position on the asymmetrically guilloché dial every day, providing the watch with its characteristic but also ever-changing look. Hands and indexes with Superluminova allow excellent legibility at any time of day.

The integrated high-quality rubber strap with an elegantly textured inner surface provides maximum comfort during sports activities.


With the Belvedere Midnight & Titan, we expand our Belvedere collection with two additional variants.

The sportiness of the Belvedere Titan and the Belvedere Midnight is subtly and understatedly underscored through the deliberate emphasis on color and material. Elegance takes on a new presence, with the golden second hand shining brilliantly in both detail and functionality.

Perfect for any occasion – be it formal or casual – the Belvedere Titan and Midnight bestow upon your appearance a timeless sophistication.

Casual elegance with an imperial twist

On the occasion of Carl Suchy & Söhne’s 200th anniversary, the Austrian watch brand presents a sporty, robust automatic watch with a unique date display. The Belvedere is the perfect companion for a plunge into the Danube or an elegant gala at the Viennese Hofburg, the former imperial palace.

Belvedere means “Beautiful view” and refers to a building that was designed to provide a beautiful, tranquil, and expansive view of its surroundings. The Belvedere communicates Vienna’s relaxed attitude towards life, to enjoy every moment with a “beautiful view”.

The titan case of the Belvedere is also subtly animated by the interplay of polished and satin-finished surfaces. The watch runs on the CSS201 caliber, which is built upon a Dubois Dépraz and delivers 42 hours of power reserve. The integrated high-quality rubber strap has an elegantly textured inner surface for maximum wearing comfort even while the wearer is engaged in sports. Even swimmers can keep the watch on while in the water since the screw-down crown allows water resistance up to one-hundred meters.


Carl Suchy & Söhne presents the “JUMPING DATE”

Adding a familiar “Suchy twist”, the Belvedere features a unique “jumping” date display window that changes position each day, transforming the look of the watch every twenty-four hours. The skeletonized hands and indexes light up brightly on the dial thanks to a generous application of SuperLumiNova, ensuring high legibility even in difficult lighting conditions.

The new model is available in an initial series of 100 watches in total, available in white, blue, and black color variants.

About Carl Suchy & Söhne


2017 the Viennese legacy watch brand returned with the „Waltz N°1“


Founded in 1822 by Austrian watch-maker Carl Suchy, the renowned watch brand counted the likes of Emperor Franz Joseph, Empress Sisi and Sig- mund Freud amongst his distinguished customers. After one century as the sole watchmaker for the Habsburg roy- alty, Carl Suchy & Söhne disappeared with the demise of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 2017, the brand has revived.


The Viennese legacy brand returned in 2017 with an iconic model: The Waltz N°1, a watch that is inspired by Viennese Modernism and the works of architect Adolf Loos, who marked the golden age of Austrian art. The automatic timepiece features a caliber by Vaucher Manu- facture Fleurier, which is reworked by Swiss watchmaker Marc Jenni, a former member of the Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants (AHCI). In 2018, the watch brand presented a skeleton version of its best-seller.


Renowned worldwide, the pompous Austrian capital’s coffeehouse culture and the illustrious balls held at the imperial courts have been the basis of the Viennese art of living since the beginning of the 20iest century. With its rotating “Waltzing Disk” in place of the second hand at 6 o’clock, the Waltz 1 and its declinations honor an époque of artistic and intellectual effervescence, in which time counted little: once a minute, its guilloche-pattern on the disc aligns with that of the dial.


1796 Carl Suchy was born in Prague, the «royal metropolis» and second cap- ital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

1812-1819  Apprentice years with famous German watchmaker Franz Lehner. Wandering years in German and Switzerland, the cradles of Euro- pean watchmaking.

1822  26 -year  old  Suchy  opens his shop in Prague. His technically advanced pendulum and wall clocks match the market-leading English and Swiss models and win countless prizes. Official sup- plier to the Imperial Court since 1835, Suchy has 35 employees and gains a good reputation well beyond the Empire.

1844 Thanks to his watches, which „exceed the highest expectations in regard to elegance and technical per- fection”, Carl Suchy is appointed the first and for many years only “Watch Purveyor to the Royal and Imperial Court”.

1849  As Suchy’s sons join the paren- tal business, „Carl Suchy & Söhne” is founded. The watches are produced in the Austrian manufactory as well as in the Swiss branch and are regularly displayed at world fairs in Paris, London and Vienna.

1863  Carl Suchy & Söhne opens a shop in the center of Vienna and holds the title of Purveyor to the Royal Courts for three generations until the decay of the Habsburg Empire in 1918.

2017  Revived by Robert Punken- hofer, an internationally renowned art and design expert, the Viennese legacy watch brands returns in 2017 to Basel with the Waltz 1, whose skeleton version is presented in Basel in 2018.
