Christophe Claret decided to trim down the original silhouette of the Marguerite watch, whose diameter has thus been reduced from 42.50 mm to 36.90 mm, while maintaining both its inherent refinement and its singular nature. This new jewelry watch is available in two versions. One is in 5N red gold set with champagne-toned diamonds and an aubergine strap; while the other is an even precious version set with diamonds and flaunting a flaming red strap.
Dainty, chic, precious and harmoniously balanced, Marguerite is a vivid reminder that elegance bears no relation to the size of the case.
In addition to the numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the dial presents a second display. One press on the pusher at 2 o’clock makes the numbers disappear to reveal the phrase: “Il m’aime passionnément” (He loves me passionately). This message can be personalized via the configurator. The watch can display any message requested by the owner, in the desired language, with a limited number of characters. Releasing the pusher makes the hour display reappear instantly.
On the back, the owner can indulge in the “He loves me, he loves me not” game, the simplified English version of daisy petals, invented in the 18th century. In order to play, the watch must be placed in a horizontal position and accompanied by one or two undulating movements. The oscillating weight then turns for a few seconds prior to standing still. The ruby closest to the red-lacquered heart provides the response – “yes” or “no” in the center.
More than ever, the Marguerite establishes itself as a vivid symbol of the romantic game of love and chance.
