Baccara is a timepiece doubling as a miniature casino with three games: baccarat (‘baccara’ in French/Italian), roulette and dice, each appealing to the audio, visual, and tactile senses.
The Baccarat cards appear on the dial as if by magic. At 6 o’clock, the player’s cards are distributed in three small windows. The banker’s cards are at 12 o’clock. To shuffle the cards, the player presses a pusher located at 9 o’clock while a pusher at 8 o’clock distributes the cards to the players. At 10 o’clock, a third pusher organizes distribution to the bank. 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 is the sheer complexity of Christophe Claret’s movement that makes it possible to have an authentic game of baccarat, as if the wearer was in a real casino.
