Baccara timepiece doubles up as a miniature casino with three games


Would you like to add yet another Christophe Claret creation to your collection? Well if you are a poker lover at heart as well, then this one sporting three games: Baccara, roulette and dice game will get you hooked. With a 45 mm dial face, the watch dubbed Baccara, runs on an automatic movement with a BCR09 Caliber. The watch features three “BANKER” windows and three “PLAYER” windows at the front and “3D roulette wheel rotating in unison with the watch movement” at the back. Also every time the shutter opens, for either the player or the bank, a cathedral gong can be see through a caseband window at 2 o’clock.


It comes in gold and grade 5 black PVD titanium case with black lacquered bezel indexes; finished with gold and grade 5 black PVD titanium crown. Boasting of a 72 hour power reserve and 30 meters of water resistance, the watch is truly a work of art. The dial face sports a dragon motif with Black PVD and hands done up in precious metals.
