X-TREM-1 Chocolat Christophe Claret


Christophe Claret has just introduced its most delightful watch, the X-TREM-1 Chocolat. Produced in red gold and titanium grade 5 treatment PDV chocolate, this piece combines the superb technical precision with elegant color model cocoa finish.

Two small areas of steel hollow tubes sapphire isolated left and right of the housing, without mechanical connection moving, thanks to the magnetic fields.

The presence of these magnetic fields, traditional enemies of mechanical watchmaking, became the revolution of these watches that saved by a system composed of two small steel balls (hollowed out to make them lighter) that isolated in two tubes sapphire on the right and left of the song, move driven by the magnetic fields generated by two miniature magnets carried by cables.

Filming presentation, meanwhile, is regulated by a special escape, seeking time information on the set of weather. Composed by releasing an anchor every 25 seconds a tooth wheel anchor of shooting presentation, it is activated by a shooting tied to bed time.

At the time of filming one reaches the end of its power reserve barrel, exhaust interrupted the progress of his neighbor. This configuration allows, from the energy point of view, the shooting of tourbillon and presentation are independent, thus avoiding disturbances, optimize reserve and confer an ideal clock accuracy.
