Hit the Jackpot with Christophe Claret’s Poker Watch
Capturing the unique balance between the game of poker and horology, Christophe Claret’s Poker Watch is a true watchmaking marvel, oozing sophistication and glamour from every single angle you look at it. This incredible watch is actually the third and last model in the brand’s stunning gaming collection, which also includes a beautiful Baccara watch and a gorgeous Blackjack timepiece.
But all these watches are actually functional works of art, and apart from telling time in a super cool way, they also offer you the chance to play your favorite games, right on your watch. For instance, this wonderful Poker Watch offers you an interactive game of Texas Hold’em poker, that could be played between two or three players.
The players would have to initiate the shuffling mode to receive their cards, and then they can even activate the flop, turn and river, and start betting in between, while a cathedral gong is played every time a card is presented. Just like your normal poker game, the unique mechanism uses the typical deck of cards, while the dial of this watch has been specifically designed in a way that only one hand could be seen from each angle.
But wait, that’s not all this incredible timepiece has to offer! If you turn this watch around, you’ll discover another game for those who love Grizzly Gambling, a fully functional roulette wheel that’s hidden on the back of the dial. Apparently two skilled watchmakers have worked on these gameplay functions full time for over two years, which says a lot about how complicated they really are.
Available in four different color combinations, each of them produced in a limited run of just 20 examples, the Christophe Claret Poker Watch is priced from $180,000 to $194,000, so… you’ll probably have to hit the jackpot just to be able to wear this beautiful thing on your wrist.
But if you can afford it already, and you’d love to make a fashion statement wherever you go, especially when you’re at the card table, you can’t find a watch that’s more perfect than this beauty.
