In early February, Mr. Claret, invited by Sincere Group – the Christophe Claret distribution partner in Singapore- and accompanied by Wolfgang Sickenberg, the brand's CEO, visited Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to attend a dinner for collectors. In addition, at the Master Craftsmen & Bespoke Art event in Kuala Lumpur, Christophe Claret presented three of his most recent creations: Margot, Maestoso and Soprano and gave a talk on chiming watches, complications that are close to his heart and a domain in which he has over 25 years of experience.
"For both our brand and myself, these meetings are important as direct contact with our clients is full of sentiment. Our clients are demanding, and rightly so. They enjoy talking directly to the person who conceived their watch and the owner of the brand. For my part, I enjoy taking this opportunity to present the way we work and how we constantly push the boundaries of haute horlogerie because ultimately, these collectors become our best brand ambassadors", explains Christophe Claret.
This visit to Malaysia also included exploring possibilities of promoting the brand in this burgeoning market. Negotiations have been successful and the opening of Christophe Claret’s first retailer is expected to be announced shortly.
From February 23 - 28, the Le Locle brand will exhibit in Doha, Qatar, at the 12th Salon of Watches and Jewellery.
