ComplicationsMonopusher Chronograph with Striking Mechanism

  • the starting and stopping of the chronograph is heard before the time is read off on the wrist. Christophe Claret started with a simple premise: athletes launch out of starting blocks when the gun is fired; boxers begin and stop their fights when a gong is struck; horses burst out of the stalls when the starter gives the signal. So, it is logical to hear exactly when the chronograph starts and stops timing. Kantharos enriches the world of short-time measurements with an ingenious striking system triggered by each change of mode (start, stop, reset).
 
  • The concept is entirely in line with Christophe Claret, which has repeatedly distinguished itself with innovative, striking mechanisms featuring cathedral gongs. The latter, the acknowledged king of chimes, is visible at 10 o’clock and equipped with a patented system that avoids the gongs vibrating against each other. The chronograph delivers peerless and reliable performance. Inspired by car gearboxes, its clutch disk system prevents the hand from jumping when the chronograph starts to enhance precision. This useful, functional, entertaining chronograph plays on the sensorial – acoustic and tactile – interaction between the instrument and its owner.
 
  • In addition to this innovative complication, Kantharos is also equipped with a constant-force escapement. Majestically enthroned on the dial side at 6 o’clock, this clever mechanism is a key component that considerably reduces timing variations. The energy delivered to the escapement remains constant from the beginning to the end of the power reserve. Precision is the overriding goal. The perpetually moving mechanism exercises a hypnotic visual effect, which may be admired beneath a meticulously chamfered sapphire bridge, revealing the full extent of the master watchmaker’s know-how.
 
  • This technical perfection is matched by architectural balance: Kantharos leaves nothing to chance. Its layered dial skillfully plays on depth and transparency, accentuating the visual field while catching and holding the light. It is designed like an amphitheater where the actors display remarkable skills.
 
  • The Kantharos caliber is ingenious in many respects. This self-winding mechanical movement is equipped with the first-ever components made from M-15X. This new material has never been used before in the watch industry to make laminated steel and was developed in cooperation with L. Klein SA. It epitomizes Christophe Claret's particular attention to the constant pursuit of innovation – whether in terms of horological complications, machinery, or materials. M-15X is a type of steel made using powder metallurgy-based production technology, giving it a homogeneous microstructure and a very fine grain. This material serves to achieve remarkably high-quality mirror-polished finishes.
 
  • Housed inside a 45 mm-diameter case in titanium and rose gold, the movement was designed, developed, and assembled in-house. This extremely complex caliber is not built up layer by layer, as is usually the case, but is fully integrated – a unified approach that enhances finesse, performance, and coherent technical and aesthetic appeal. The movement design is a feat in its own right. The rotor boasts increased inertia, and the mainspring guarantees a 48-hour power reserve. Clearly visible through the sapphire crystal case back and fitted with 75 jewels – an impressive number that single-handedly symbolizes the complexity of the mechanism – the caliber conceals nothing of its refined finishing. Among its 558 components, the swan-neck regulator spring and oscillating winding rotor feature hand-crafted finishes reflecting the finest haute horlogerie traditions. These include polished internal angles, an extremely demanding technique, and a balance-cock adorned with a brilliant-cut ruby. This wealth of subtle touches offers vivid proof that aesthetic precision pervades even the smallest of components and fully matches the outstanding technical performance of the timepiece. Together, they constitute the inimitable signature touch of the Manufacture Claret.
