BOx of dice

The Blackjack watch was born on market day in Saint Tropez! On that day, Christophe Claret saw a strange metal box. Inside, the box had a system enabling it to make two discs turn and stop them randomly. In fact, it was a box used to throw dice mechanically, and had been built at the beginning of the 20th century.

Las Vegas – Dial

It is located in the heart of the Nevada desert and has been nicknamed the world gaming capital. We’re referring to Las Vegas, naturally, the legendary universe that inspired the dial of the Blackjack.

Roulette

Alongside Blackjack, baccarat, dice and poker, roulette is part of legendary casino games and so naturally deserved to figure somewhere on this exceptional piece. On the Blackjack, it appears on the back of the watch.
