SIHH 2019: Hands-on the Christophe Claret ANGELICO tourbillon watch with long detend escapement

Christophe Claret´s “Angelico” Tourbillon with long detent escapement and cable-type fusee in fact is a one of a kind watch. Master-watchmaker Christophe Claret and his team conceived the timepiece to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the brand Christophe Claret and the 30th anniversary of the Manufacture Christophe Claret. As you might know Christophe started his business by developing ultra-complicated movements and selling them to many well-known brands. The latter sold them under their name… Ten years ago Christophe then started to manufacture watches under his name, but still continues to support the industry with his ticking developments.
