Christophe Claret – Art Pieces (Dragon Watch & Tiger Watch)

Based in Switzerland, Manufacture Christophe Claret is renowned for ultra complex and playful complication watches that continue to surprise mechanical watch connoisseurs and serious collectors across the world. This great luxury watch manufacture was established by master watchmaker Christophe Claret, who revolutionised the Swiss watch making industry by introducing some horology masterpieces.

Christophe Claret also offers exceptional customised mechanical watches on demand.  They  were however  ultra-confidential,  being  destined  for  great  collectors  and  therefore  unknown  to  a  wider audience.  Here we are presenting two exceptional masterpieces manufactured by Christophe Claret for his elite clients.

An  anthem  to  artistic  crafts  such  as  engraving  and  gem  setting, they  are  called  Dragon Watch – based on a silver Samurai belt engraved with two dragons and purchased at auction or Tiger Watch – created to embody an American collector’s fascination with tigers.
