Christophe Claret Adagio Watch

Now with three watches bearing his name, Christophe Claret - master watch maker and designer - is able to boastfully indicate he is a real watch brand. The oft-cited and relied upon movement making genius makes his work look easy. Producing highly limited super high-end watches with a distinct character and focus on complicated functions. Interestingly enough, between his Dual Tow and 21 Blackjack watches, the Adagio feels downright straight forward.

Looking like a follow-up to the Shabaka watch that he made for Jean Dunand, the Adagio has a sort of space-age Egyptian design to it, and comes in a 44mm wide case in either 18k rose or white gold, or in platinum. Aside from telling the time, the watch has a second timezone in 12 hour format with a day/night indicator, a big date, a subsidiary seconds disc, and a minute repeater. The beautiful dial comes in a series of materials including the pictured onyx, ruby, jade, lapis lazuli, and more.

Powering the watch is a Christophe Claret made SLB88 manually wound movement that is visible through the open case-back. Each Adagio watch style will be limited to just 8 pieces, from prices ranging from 268,000 - 318,000 Swiss Francs.
