CHRISTOPHE CLARET

LOT 37

MAGICAFIORE DE CHRISTOPHE CLARET

For Only Watch 2017, Christophe Claret pays tribute to the love of live and the love passion.

 

At the heart of this watchmaking fable, a 3D depiction of the cherry blossom revisited by Christophe Claret gives pride of place to artistic crafts. The blue enameled center of the flower features a pistil topped with a blue sapphire and stamens represented by 28 emeralds. 

 

To provide a joyful escort for the passing of time, two hand-engraved dragonflies indicate the time.

 

The white gold case is adorned with 59 blue sapphires and 15 marquise-cut emeralds symbolizing the leaves of the cherry tree.

 

The visual enchantment does not end there. One press on the pusher at 2 o’clock makes the numbers disappear to reveal the phrase specially created for Only Watch: “Pour l’amour de la vie” (For the love of life).

 

The sapphire caseback provides an opportunity to admire the movement’s oscillating weight, set with 4 emeralds and 4 blue sapphires. At will, the owner can indulge in the “He loves me… he loves me not” game, the simplified English version of daisy petals.

 

More than ever, the Magicafiore watch establishes itself as a vivid symbol of the romantic game of love and chance. A unique piece for a unique woman.
