My next meeting after Urwerk was with Christophe Claret. Wow, is all I can say!
He gave me a first look at his watch that is a huge talk of Basel, the Christophe Claret X-TREM-1. The watch is next level and he is pushing complete boundaries with this creation.
The watch is a flying tourbillon 30° tube mounted on a titanium plate and three-dimensional features of the hour and minute retrograde conceptually different than any watch I have seen before. The watch has two tiny hollowed steel spheres, isolated within sapphire tubes on the left and right sides of the case-band, compared to his favorite and personal car the Porsche 911. They float up and down, accurately indicating the hours and minutes, with no physical connection to the mechanical movement that regulates their routes.
