Christophe Claret

CONE-SHAPED MEMO AND DATE

Christophe Claret is a natural-born anti-conformist who never misses out on a chance to express his creative audacity through original displays running counter to traditional design codes. Witness the large date and the MEMO, both cone shape.

GLASS DOME

A case with pure lines that are both gentle and forceful, an ultra-dynamic curving silhouette, a panoramic vantage point from which to admire the mechanical architecture… Maestro is first and foremost a distinctive signature, a daily art of living, a daring model.

The 42mm case – the smallest diameter in the Christophe Claret collections - asserts its style with a curvex shape that accentuates its trim design. The choice of a glass dome to serve as a bezel provides a whole new perspective on the movement.

Christophe Claret is a natural-born anti-conformist who never misses out on a chance to express his creative audacity through original displays running counter to traditional design codes. Witness the large date that the watchmaker has cleverly placed at 5 o’clock. Composed of two cones,  one for the tens on the upper part and the second for the units, this patented large date display performs a semi-instantaneous jump between midnight and twenty past midnight.

As if to echo the 3D effect of this voluminous date display, another cone shape draws the gaze to the space between 3 and 4 o’clock. Never one to stint on playful complications liable to fire the imagination of watch connoisseurs, Christophe Claret unveils here another brand-new function. Inspired by the expression “tie a knot in your handkerchief” to help one remember something important, MEMO is an ingenious mechanical reminder intended for absent-minded individuals as well as fans of technical gadgets.
