Welcome Christophe Claret 21 Blackjack Casino de Monte-Carlo Watch

Nov 30, 2011
The Swiss watch manufacture Christophe Claret is thrilled to announce its collaboration with the legendary Casino de Monte-Carlo. On the occasion of this milestone, a major roulette tournament event will be held in the gaming house on December 9th and 10th, 2011.

The winner of the tournament will be granted the new Christophe Claret 21 Blackjack Casino de Monte-Carlo unique watch, specially released to mark this partnership. The novelty is delivered in a 45mm round-shaped case. It is crafted from white gold and grade 5 white titanium.

At 3 oclock, the new Christophe Claret watch reveals a winding crown, done in the same materials and set with a ruby cabochon. The case is equipped with two lateral windows: the first demonstrates dices, while the second reveals a chiming complication. The model provides 30-meter water-resistance.

Nested inside the case is a manufactory-made self-winding BLJ08 caliber movement, which uses 7 double ceramic ball bearings. It is composed of 501 individual parts, including 40 jewels. The mechanism operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and supplies a 72-hour power reserve, ensured by two barrels.

The caliber animates basic functions of hours and minutes as well as three games - dices, blackjack and roulette. Two dices (each sized 1.5mm) are placed in a box at 4 oclock. The blackjack game is presented on the dial by means of cards. The user can start the game by pressing a small button at 9 oclock. The roulette, meanwhile, is featured on the case-back, which is equipped with a glare-proofed sapphire crystal.

The central hands on the surface of the new Christophe Claret 21 Blackjack Casino de Monte-Carlo watch are made of rubies, inlaid with black rhodium treatment. The display is encircled by a white gold bezel, enhanced with baguette-cut diamonds and rubies, acting as hour-markers. The weight of jewels constitutes 3.6 and 0.8 carats respectively.

The new Christophe Claret watch is teamed with a ruby-colored leather strap.
