Christophe Claret Margot Automatic Watch

Christophe Claret Margot Automatic Watch
He loves me, he loves me not… Every woman has one day plucked the petals from a daisy to know whether her one and only shares her feelings. Christophe Claret recreates this delightful distraction in a unique and patented complication that will steal women's hearts: a world first! A push at 2 o'clock and the watch springs to life, as though abandoned to nature's whims, by hiding one petal, sometimes two, impossible to say. The all-important verdict is then delivered, inscribed on a retrograde disc at 4 o'clock. Each time the pusher is depressed, a crystal-clear note rings out. A corrector at 4 o'clock has all the petals instantly reappear; at the same time, three dots show themselves in an aperture. Turning the watch over reveals another game: the colour of feelings. When the daisy spins to a halt, one of 8 different coloured gems appears opposite the heart to symbolise the sentiment with which it is associated.
