Margot has been preselected in the top 6 watches in the “Ladies’ High-Mech” category; Soprano in the top 6 watches in the category for “Striking” timepieces.
Presented at Baselworld 2014, Margot is Christophe Claret’s first ladies’ watch complication. It has been preselected in the top 6 watches in the “Ladies’ High-Mech” category. This timepiece gives a poetic, playful and romantic slant to high-end, precision watchmaking. It features an ingenious mechanism that lets the wearer play “He loves me, he loves me not” by pressing a pusher at 2 o’clock, which ‘picks’ petals off a delightful dial-side depiction of a daisy.
Soprano has been preselected in the top 6 watches in the “Striking” timepieces. It features two major complications: a 60-second tourbillon and 4-note minute repeater striking Westminster Quarters on patented cathedral gongs. The 60-second tourbillon carriage is on full view through the open dial at 6 o’clock and is supported by a single arm stepped bridge in the characteristic style of Charles X. Soprano’s case combines titanium with either white or red gold.
As timepieces preselected by the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève, Margot and Soprano will feature as part of GPHG 2014’s international tour:
- New Delhi, India: Imperial Hotel, September 27th, 2014 / Swiss Embassy, September 26th, 2014
- Beijing, China: Yishu 8 – Maison des Arts, October 10th to 13th, 2014
- Geneva, Switzerland: Cité du Temps, October 22nd to November 2nd, 2014.
Additionally, the winning GPHG watches will be exhibited in London as part of Salon QP, from November 6th to 8th, 2014.
The winner of each category will be announced at the red-carpet GPHG ceremony held at Geneva’s Grand Théâtre on Friday, October 31st.
