It was such a pleasure to welcome the independent watch brand, Christophe Claret for this new episode of The Couch Sessions. And I have to say my nerves got the best of me, this time.
Christophe Claret has been one of my favorite brands for a very long time; and I had the pleasure of meeting Christophe during the GPHG dinner, in 2014. That same year, the Margot was awarded the GPHG Ladies’ High-Mech Watch prize, so it was a humbling experience, to be sitting across from the recipient of this award; especially for someone who appreciates high complicated watches for women, as much as I do. Christophe is quiet and reserved but if you get him talking about watches, his passion seeps through and he wins you over with his contagious enthusiasm and his technical knowledge. His thirst for invention makes him one of the most recognizable names in contemporary watchmaking; and his never-ending imagination results in original, creative, high technical timepieces.
“No limits” that’s exactly why he said when I asked him what inspires him. He pushes his imagination to the brink of technical insanity with each watch launch and keeps his clients on edge, itching for the next model.
From the incredibly complex Margot, to the clever inventiveness of the Poker and the technical folly of the Extreme1; Christophe Claret keeps challenging himself and pushing those boundaries even further.
Thank you Christophe for accepting our invitation, and we can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
