Christophe Claret @ The Legendary MTR.CCR97.102 TIGRE
Renowned for its unparalleled techniques, extreme craftsmanship and groundbreaking designs, world-acclaimed watchmaker Christophe Claret has once again inspired the world with an eye-opening piece – the MTR.CCR97.102 TIGRE, a unique piece specially-made for Elegant Watch & Jewellery, the leading watch and jewellery retailer in Hong Kong. The exceptional piece gives pride of place to watchmaking traditions in terms of both its exterior and its soul. The flange of the 41-mm 18K white gold features hour-markers that are set with diamonds and blue sapphires. The blue hands, blue sapphire stones, blue screws, and hand-engraved barrel bridge on the recto face give off an elegant yet modern flair. On the caseback is a hand-engraved tiger head on blue lacquer, dazzling noble charm with its blue sapphire eyes. Fitted with a blue sapphire crown and a blue alligator leather strap, the watch is well-crafted in refined detail. The mechanism that drives this beauty, the Calibre CCR97 which is entirely created in-house, is composed of 195 parts. Apart from central hour and minute hands, the watch features a one-minute tourbillon. Featuring a balance oscillation frequency of 21,600 vph, a power reserve of approximately 100 hours and a water resistance of 30 m, the one-of-a-kind piece is destined to become one of the most sensational pieces in the watchmaking history.
