X-TREM-1 Red Gold and Chocolate Brown PVD Titanium by Christophe Claret
The "X-TREM-1 Red Gold and Chocolate Brown PVD Titanium" is a watch from Christophe Claret's "X-TREM-1" collection. The Watch features a openwork dial and is housed in a red gold and chocolate brown pvd titanium case. This timepiece is a men's watch. The rectangular case has a width of 46.4mm, a length of 26.6mm, a height of 11.9mm and is waterproofed up to approximately 30 meters water depth (3 bar). A transparent case back makes it possible to admire the movement.
The watch's functions are provided by a hand-wound Christophe Claret FLY11 mechanical caliber offering a power reserve of 50 hours and indicators for hours (retrograde), minutes (retrograde) and seconds (off-centered). As regulating organ, the caliber makes use of a flying tourbillon which causes the balance wheel and the escapement to rotate slowly. In the days of pocket watches, the tourbillon increased the accuracy of the watch by preventing the minute components from working in the same orientation for a prolonged period of time. Today, the complication mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The case is fitted with a brown alligator leather strap with a red gold folding clasp. Production of the watch is limited to 8 pieces. Christophe Claret asks its official retailers to sell the watch at around 308'000 CHF. Please use the "Contact Shop" button to ask an official retailer of your choice for their offer."
