A classic model giving pride of place to watchmaking traditions in terms of both its mechanism and its design, this exceptional watch is equipped with Calibre SLB88, naturally created entirely in house and composed of 455 parts. The Adagio features central hour and minute hands, small seconds at 9 o’clock in a window or subdial, depending on the versions; along with a large date at 6 o’clock and a dual time-zone (hours and minutes) display complete with day/night indication in a subdial at 2 o’clock.
In tribute to his Manufacture’s first calibre introduced over 20 years ago, Christophe Claret wanted to equip this timepiece with a minute repeater, a particularly intricate fine watchmaking complication that has become one of the great specialities of the Manufacture. Striking the hours, quarters and minutes on demand, the “cathedral gongs” of the striking mechanism are fitted with a patented device preventing them from knocking against each other when they vibrate under the hammer strikes. The equally patented large date display features an unprecedented construction. The large date is a calibre widely used on the market. To stand out from the crowd, Christophe Claret developed a dedicated mechanism that corresponds to none of the many existing patents, consisting of a mechanism that is reliable, accurate and simple to assemble. The patent relates to a system that avoids the discs becoming desynchronised in case of impacts.
