Live from SIHH 2019: Christophe Claret

For this year, Claret presents the new Anglico – the 10th Anniversary Piece, a dual time watch incorporating a tourbillon with a long detent escapement and a fusee system. Handwound 470 components in a 45mm in either red gold or titanium. CHF 238,000 and CHF 218,000 (excl tax) respectively. Each limited to 10 pieces. In the pic below, in Ti.

The detent escapement provides good accuracy, but is very sensitive to lateral shocks. Claret undertook to reduce this succeptibility. 

The fusee, visible at 12 on the dial is equipped with a cable instead of a chain. The idea is to optimize efficiency and increase power reserve.
