Las Vegas

Poker embodies the electric atmosphere of Las Vegas and its Strip: Machines ring loudly and the cards are dealt. Comfortably settled down with a casino at hand, time is no longer counted but forgotten. Dial side, a game of Texas Hold’em, on the back, a roulette wheel… and don't be surprised if by chance a pin-up appears! No more bets, please!

Blind system

Strategy and bluff are at the heart of Poker. The ingenious system developed by Christophe Claret ensures that your cards are invisible to your opponents: Blinds subtly hide your hand from prying eyes as soon as the cards are dealt. The real question is: who will get the strongest hand?

POKER

Poker is an exceptional automaton watch. Its development required two watchmaker-constructors working full time for over two years. Users can immerse themselves in real three-player games of the most popular variant of poker: Texas Hold’em. The challenge was incorporating a complete 52-card game following the rules of poker, with a large number of gameplay possibilities, all together in a mechanical movement. In total, Poker packs in 32,768 different combinations, i.e. 98,304 combinations for three players. The probabilities were calculated so that each player has approximately the same chances of winning.

Two pushers activate the deals at each round of betting, including the flop, the turn and the river. On the dial, three windows present each player’s cards, invisible to the other players thanks to a special blinds system that conceal each hand from other players. True to his mastery of chiming watches, Christophe Claret has equipped Poker with a cathedral gong, which sounds each time a pusher is activated.
