New Addition To The Christophe Claret Collection Launched At The Geneva Exhibition

By Neharika Padala

Christophe Claret is pleased to present X-TREM-1 Blue at the brand’s exhibition at the Four Seasons hotel in Geneva from the 18th to the 22nd of January, 2015. This timepiece features a white gold and grade 5 titanium case treated with slate blue PVD, plus a matching marine blue alligator-skin strap.

The X-TREM-1 has become one of the most popular watches of the brand and this blue version is as visually striking as it is technically innovative.

Christophe Claret has always focused on developing original timepieces incorporating the latest technological innovations. The brand is known for pushing the boundaries of mechanical watchmaking and straying away from the beaten horological path. First presented in 2012, X-TREM-1 is a testament to this endeavor and represents a totally new way of telling the time.

X-TREM-1 Blue displays hour and minutes by means of two tiny hollowed stainless steel spheres isolated within sapphire tubes on both sides of the caseband. The whole mechanism is revolutionary: the two spheres – which appear to be floating in their respective tubes – are controlled by magnetic fields generated by two magnets moved by ultra-thin surgical silk thread. Thanks to the magnetic fields generated by the magnets, the spheres have no mechanical connection to the movement and float inside the tubes, as if by magic.

Crucially, the magnetic fields are precision-focused so that they have no effect whatsoever on the movement – apart from the task assigned to them, which is to display time in an incredibly original way. Time is read against a metalized scale on each tube, hours on the left, minutes on the right. X-TREM-1 Blue features a white gold and slate blue PVD titanium case and is available in a limited edition of eight pieces.

Christophe Claret is an haute horlogerie brand whose exclusive timepieces are available in four collections: Traditional Complications Line, Extreme Watches Line, Casino Game Watches and Ladies’ Complications Watch Line. In its own special way, each timepiece is an expression of the values that define and distinguish the master watchmaker himself: innovation, perfection, passion, uniqueness and exclusivity.
