It’s time once again for Only Watch –the biennial charity auction to benefit research into finding more effective therapies, and ultimately a cure, for muscular dystrophy. Hot off the presses is this contribution from Christophe Claret: a pinball themed version of his X-Trem 1 watch, which shows the time with two magnetically suspended steel balls.
“This is a unique timepiece designed to reflect that most precious of children’s activities: Play. Taking its inspiration from pinball machines, Pinball is a highly distinctive interpretation of Christophe Claret’s X-TREM-1. The Le Locle-based watchmaker has also reworked the appearance of the movement so it resembles the inside of a pinball machine: Bumpers, slingshots and balls are all evoked inside the highly visible mechanism. Even the cool blue and bright orange colours reflect the Pinball concept.”
