Today’s Haute Time Watch of the Day selected by Carmelo Anthony is The Soprano Tourbillon Minute Repeater by Christophe Claret. This impressive timepiece is an example of watch making tradition combined with the technology and innovations of today.
The Soprano Tourbillon Minute Repeater features a 45mm white gold and anthracite PVD titanium case which houses a Calibre TRD98 mechanical hand-wound movement with a 60 second tourbillon. The Soprano Tourbillon Minute Repeater shows hours and minutes using black PVD and ruby spinal hands on the dial – which is actually the exposed movement.
This unique timepiece by Christophe Claret is equipped with a 4-note minute repeater which plays Westminster Quarters. Four visible hammers strike four patented cathedral gongs to create the beautiful chime. Shown on a black hand-sewn alligator leather strap with red stitching, the Soprano Tourbillon Minute Repeater is water resistant to 3 ATM.
The Soprano Tourbillon Minute Repeater by Christophe Claret will be produced in a limited edition of 8 pieces.
