Christophe Claret continues in his gaming concept of playful watches for the wrist – this time releasing his first ever women’s watch: Margot. Inspired by the romantic act of plucking the petals of a daisy one by one to find the answer to the riddle “He loves me, he loves me not,” Claret offers a new complicated timepiece with an ingenious mechanism that helps to predict the answer. With the press of a pusher at 2:00, the watch comes to life – and each time the wearer presses the pusher, a single petal or a pair of petals randomly falls off the daisy that fills the center of the dial – disappearing beneath the dial. Finally, the answer appears in French calligraphy at 4:00. With each press, a melodic chime resonates in typical Claret style.
The watch, created in four versions each in a limited edition of 20 pieces, houses the EMT17 automatic winding caliber with an incredible 731 parts and 95 jewels. Built with two barrels, it offers 72 hours of power reserve. The 42.5mmm case is offered in white gold with or without baguette diamonds. The dial is blue mother of pearl and the daisy is white with a gold center. It will retail for approximately $315,000. We will bring you more about this timepiece post BaselWorld, but meanwhile enjoy the video below.
