Christophe Claret’s passion was born in the workshop of a watchmaker restorer who spends over a year disassembling and assembling horological mechanisms in order to clean and service them. Christophe Claret acquired the Soleil d’Or, a magnificent mansion perched on the heights of Le Locle. Within a few years, this magnificent residence was transformed into one of the world’s most cutting-edge watch Manufactures. Uniting all professions involved in the design, development and production of movements as well as other parts of the watch such as cases, the premises have undergone a progressive transformation into a superb contemporary watch production facility.
Christophe Claret watches are an inspired reflection of watchmaking genius expressed through its most powerful manifestation: perpetual emotion. Playful, creative and unconventional, these genuine masterpieces intended for devotees of rare and subtly offbeat products that are nonetheless firmly positioned in the sphere of Haute Horlogerie.
Since 1989, the watchmaker has been seeking to put together a set of ideal conditions for the birth of prodigious, atypical and excellent horological mechanisms. Christophe Claret has never swerved from this highly demanding path towards absolute perfection and culminating in a range of extraordinary watches.
