Chris Claire Big Date Dual Time

Featured here is the Chris Claire Big Date Dual Time. Not round, not square, nor even oval, the Big Date Dual Time is a ‘form’ watch that embodies a highly personal vision of elegance, well off the beaten track of established design codes. In harmony with a perfectly controlled vintage aesthetic vocabulary, the rounded curves and sharp angles engage in an intimate dialogue that accentuates the pure design of the dial lit up framed by a pink gold or stainless steel case.

The large date window literally jumps out from the dial, like an essential and effective temporal reference complemented by a dual-time display. The only touch of colour is a discreet day/night indication standing out against the white dial.
