SIHH 2017 is around the bend, and our letter box is topping off with pre-SIHH discharges and under-ban material. By one way or another I feel all these pre-SIHH discharges ruin the unexpected viewpoint a piece, however all brands are longing for openness obviously. Large brands like IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet and so on will overwhelm the news channels and magazines, yet don’t fail to remember there are a lot of autonomous companies there also. One of them is Cristophe Claret and they will show us their new Maestro.
Christophe Claret Maestro
Next week, Christophe Claret will disclose the new Maestro. A watch with a marvelous [movement] design, that very the excessively domed precious stone. A precious stone that helps me nearly to remember the ones that Magellan utilizes for their Planet arrangement of watches. The development transcends the case, so even from the side of the watch this gives a hell of a view.
The 42mm instance of the Christophe Claret Maestro is accessible in either pink gold (5N) or titanium (grade 5). The pink gold rendition has a great deal of red accents and the titanium is combined with blue accents. Indeed, even the balance-wheel with subset fastens are – either – red or blue.
The 3D impact of the Christophe Claret Maestro is essentially shocking, at any rate on the renders that we’ve seen and appearing here. Simply view that cone-molded huge date show. Just situated to the upper right of the date cone, you will see another – more modest – cone that says ‘Memo’. Contingent upon the adaptation of the watch, this cone shape is enhanced with a sapphire or ruby and a precious stone serving to inform the wearer of the watch of his set reminder. How you will utilize this capacity is up to the wearer obviously, regardless of whether it is for an arrangement or an every day suggestion to take your pills (or whatever). It is slick though.
Christophe Claret guarantees us in their pre-SIHH official statement that the completion of the watch is finished by hand, and as per the best expectations as per ‘Haute Horlogerie’. The ventured Charles X style spans include no under 26 inside plots for example.
Only 88 pieces will be made per variety (5N pink gold and titanium). The titanium Christophe Claret Maestro reference MTR.DMC16.100-188 will retail for 68.000 Swiss Francs and the pink gold reference MTR.DMC16.000-088 for 76.000 Swiss Francs. Barring deals taxes.
More data soon, when we’ve seen the piece in the substance during the SIHH 2017.
