Christophe Claret ?For over 20 years, the Claret Manufacture has been designing, developing and producing highly complicated watch movements for the most prestigious brands. However, it was not until 2009 and the launch of the extraordinary DualTow that the public at large finally discovered the talent of this exceptional watchmaker. The Christophe Claret brand now belongs to the exclusive circle of independent watch manufacturers capable of mastering the entire production process of Haute Horlogerie watches ? from the original idea through to final adjustments. The Christophe Claret collection comprises three lines, each one encompassing superlative horological expertise: The Traditional Complications line, composed of unique pieces, such as Adagio, Soprano and Kantharos; the Extreme Watches line, including DualTow and X-TREM 1; and finally the Interactive Casino Game Watches line, featuring the 21 Blackjack and Baccara models.? For Only Watch 2013 Christophe Claret created the X-TREM-1 Pinball, a flying tourbillon watch equipped with a retrograde hours and minutes display system that is radically different from existing watchmaking conventions. Two tiny metal balls, isolated within grilled sapphire tubes on the left and right sides of the caseband magically move with no mechanical connection thanks to magnetic fields.
