-In a few lines can you introduce your company? Created by whom, since when ? How was this idea born? And how long will it take to realize one watch ? Can you tell us few words about the different models of watch and price range ?
The brand Christophe Claret SA was created in 2009 by Christophe Claret himself.
The brand has 4 collections:
The traditional complications watches where we find high-complication movements of traditional type, especially with Charles X bridges. There is the Soprano, the Allegro, the Maestoso and our last watch, the Maestro.
The collection Gaming Watches where we find the Black Jack, the Baccara and the Poker.
The collection Ladies’ complications watches where we find the Margot, which won an award at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie in Geneva and the Marguerite, its little sister.
Finally, the collection Extreme watches where we find the X-TREM 1. For this one, the main challenge was to introduce magnets inside a watch. The inspiration for this product includes many elements that have nothing to do with watchmaking: aerospace, magnetic train, ski-tows, old ball printers and the automobile.
The time to develop and realize one watch varies from 18 months to 8 years depending on the complexity of the product.
Prices vary between 49'000 and 476'000
-Are there countries more enthusiasm for this kind of watch ?
The X-TREM 1 is the bestseller of our brand and is appreciated in all countries in relation to its extreme originality and innovation but also by its comfort (curvex movement and box) and its side both contemporary and classic.
-Do you think to an eventual partnership ? What is your vision for the future ?
I intend to sell 25% of the shares of Christophe Claret SA in order to bring a financial contribution to boost the growth of the brand.
We intend to develop the brand with the arrival of this partner, but also by the increase in financial investments for the communication and the marketing then by the increase in the number of pieces sold.
