  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch, Adagio, is the second model of the Traditional Collection manufactured by Christophe Claret. This classic model, powered by the in-house caliber SLB88, is a tribute to Christophe Claret’s first calibre introduced over 20 years ago. The watch features a cathedral gong minute repeater, dual time display and day and night indicator and excels in many ways in terms of both its exceptional mechanism and its exterior. The cathedral gongs striking mechanism is fitted with a patented device that prevents the gongs from knocking against each other when they vibrate and chime.

    Available in three colours, pink gold, white gold or platinum, all manufactured in a limited edition of 8 examples only. The present watch is numbered 5 of a limited edition of 8 pieces only.

    To the best of our knowledge, the present model is fresh to the market and has never been offered at auction thus far.
