“In watchmaking, everything has already been done, and everything has yet to be invented”: the Christophe Claret formula is evident at every stage of the design process within the manufacture’s atelier. The watchmaker takes his inspiration from tradition and heritage to create exceptional and surprising creations. His watches are at the cutting edge of technology and innovation, offering new forms of expression for the most classic of grand complications. Sometimes playful, often spectacular, the timepieces are infused with the emotion of discovery, discipline and intuition that turn a watchmaker into an artist.
X for eXperimental, T for Time, R for Research, E for Engineering, M for Mechanism. A tourbillon equipped timepiece that uses a magnetic system to display hours and minutes, the X-TREM-1 embodies Christophe Claret’s desire to transcend the limits of watch mechanics by incorporating brand new fields of research.
The Christophe Claret brand now belongs to the extremely exclusive circle of independent Haute Horlogerie brands that design, develop and produce their watches entirely in-house. An exceptional location at the heart Swiss watchmaking, placing it firmly at the forefront of horological innovation.
