Christophe Claret and Haute Time celebrated the luxury brand’s timepiece collections at the Fasano Hotel & Residences Sales Center with an intimate candlelit dinner and presentation. Christophe Claret showcased his unique collections, which bring forth a new element to traditional luxury watches, as they add in intricate entertainment and gaming features into their special “Gaming” line. The timepieces are not only playful, creative and unconventional, they are also extremely complex and delicate models.
Remember the game, “He loves me, he loves me not,” that young girls play as children? Well, Christophe Claret incorporates this childhood play of love and chance into real life with his Marguerite women’s timepiece, which features a beautiful daisy on the face of the watch. Christophe Claret’s wife, Christine Claret, flaunted her own Marguerite timepiece, which she adorned on her wrist for all to admire.
Men can join in the fun as well and turn their wristwatches into a fully functional casino, indulging in a game of poker, blackjack or baccara wherever they are with the men’s gaming collection. The three pieces feature ingenious mechanisms that completely replicate the rules of these gaming classics.
For a more traditional option, Christophe Claret presented the Soprano timepiece, which associates two of the finest horological complications into one masterpiece, featuring a 60-second tourbillon and a minute repeater with Westminster chime, four patented cathedral gongs and four hammers, highlighted by bridges and inspired by the Charles X style.
After the presentation, attendees sat down for an intimate candlelit dinner outside at the impressive Fasano Hotel & Residences Sales Center. Guests enjoyed exquisite bites prepared by the talented Chef Martin Rodrigue of Faire la Fete, including creamy fresh burratta and tomatoes, a light Chervil Encrusted Sea Bass and the crowd favorite—the savory Classic Opera Cake with Raspberry Coulis. Notable guests included Christophe Claret, Luis and Judith Fanjul, Haute Time CEO Kamal Hotchandani, Veuve Clicquot Communication Director Aymerric Sancerre, Richard Charlton, Enrico Romagnoli, Ray and Nadine Valme, and Fasano Developers Anthony Tufariello, Henry Winterstern, and Ziel Feldm
