Christophe Claret

TIGer

Created to embody an American collector’s fascination with tigers. The tiger is an emblematic figure representing strength and ferocity.

Tiger watch

The tiger is considered the world’s most powerful animal. Its considerable strength has always fascinated human beings, who use its symbolic figure in many different cultures. Christophe Claret made this tourbillon at the request of a customer who was so fond of it that he keeps several of them on his own property. This one-of-a-kind piece reflects the creative strength of the watchmaker, who drew upon a collector’s passion in order to reinterpret it through this magnificent expression of contemporary Fine Watchmaking. The exceptional engraving work on the caseback is similar to that of the dragon watch.
