Christophe Claret


Innovative mechanics are behind this game that seeks the answer to one of nature’s paramount questions: He loves me? He loves me not? Margot lets feelings flower while her petals are picked off; time lets passion consume itself, giving no hint of the revelation to come.


In a luxuriant meadow, where daydreams and daisies flourish side by side, the watch Margot takes a moment of passion and freezes it in time: A budding romance is in the air, but what will it blossom into? Margot whispers us the answer…

Margot is Christophe Claret’s first ladies’ watch complication. It features an ingenious mechanism that helps to ‘predict’ – or at least tries to – one of nature’s paramount questions: “Does he love me?” A simple press of the pusher at 2 o’clock brings the watch to life. With each press, a petal – sometimes a pair of petals, it is impossible to foresee – subtly disappears under the dial in a smooth action, perfectly depicting the delicate undressing of the flower. The eagerly-awaited answer appears at random in calligraphic letters (in French) on the dial at 4 o’clock: Un peu (a little) – beaucoup (a lot) – passionnément (passionately) – à la folie (madly) – pas du tout (not at all)?

At each press of the pusher, a distinct, crystalline chime resonates, aurally signaling the pace of the game.

The display back reveals the automatic winding rotor, a delicately carved, flower-shaped carrousel of colors symbolizing sentiments of love, with a central cabochon concealing the rotor’s ball bearings. Each one of the eight resplendent triangular precious stones denote a feeling – hope, passion, tenderness… Which one will line up with the red-lacquered heart when the flower halts its waltz?
