Christophe Claret

Macao

The Baccara has drawn its inspiration from the world of gambling, which has always fascinated Christophe Claret: “I am not a gambler myself, but I love watching how players behave in casinos. I recently had the opportunity of visiting one of them backstage in Macao. That was a rich learning experience”.

Dragon

The dragon is a symbol of power, wisdom, prosperity, perfectionism and is considered lucky. “Luck – everyone counts on luck! That is what I wanted to symbolise with this ideogram”, says Christophe Claret. “According to Chinese astrology, people born under this sign will be healthy, rich and have a long life.”

Tiger

The tiger is the symbol of strength. Always wary, it is just as likely to attack as to defend itself. It also represents power, anger, speed and unpredictability.

Baccara

Baccara is a timepiece doubling as a miniature casino with three games: baccarat (‘baccara’ in French/Italian), roulette and dice, each appealing to the audio, visual, and tactile senses.

The Baccarat cards appear on the dial as if by magic. At 6 o’clock, the player’s cards are distributed in three small windows. The banker’s cards are at 12 o’clock. To shuffle the cards, the player presses a pusher located at 9 o’clock while a pusher at 8 o’clock distributes the cards to the players. At 10 o’clock, a third pusher organizes distribution to the bank. Every time the shutter opens, for either the player or the bank, a cathedral gong can be see through a caseband window at 2 o’clock.

It is the sheer complexity of Christophe Claret’s movement that makes it possible to have an authentic game of baccarat, as if the wearer was in a real casino.
