Christophe Claret Kantharos

<< Back to Robb Report, 2014 Watch Collector

While the timepieces produced by Christophe Claret have more to do with the complication maestro’s abundance of imagination than any reckoning of the outside environment, his most recent piece, Kantharos ($128,000), has somehow emerged in perfect step with the times. Although the piece has multiple features, they are individually subdued, and most importantly they support the main function of the watch, which is the precision running of the chronograph. The constant force mechanism and vertical clutch maintain accuracy in the chronograph, which is engaged with the chime of a single acoustic cathedral gong.
