Christophe Claret


Based on a silver Samurai belt engraved with two dragons and purchased at auction.

Dragon watch

With its snake’s body, predator’s claws, bat’s wings and flaming breath, the dragon is powerful and historic symbol, prominent throughout Eastern and Western cultures. Those appearing on this magnificent Christophe Claret tourbillon watch symbolise positive forces, power, courage and the ability to surpass personal limits. To create this engraved miniature masterpiece on the caseback, Christophe Claret drew inspiration from his acquisition of a samurai warrior buckle in solid silver at auction.
