Lot Essay

Maestro Corail is a unique timepiece, featuring the voluptuous undulations of a coral snake at its heart.

At 5 o’clock, Christophe Claret placed the patented large date display, composed of two cones - one for the tens on the upper part and the second for the units - and performing a semi-instantaneous jump between midnight and twenty past midnight.

The Maestro’s characteristic MEMO, an ingenious mechanical reminder, appears between 3 and 4 o’clock. In the initial position, meaning when the owner must do something, an orange sapphire appears at 6 o’clock on the side face of the MEMO, like the gem set at its top. Once the objective has been met, a simple press on the pusher at 2 o’clock pivots the MEMO function, which will display a blue sapphire on its side face at 6 o’clock. The MEMO will return to its initial position each night in a twenty-minute process driven by a semi-instantaneous jump system.
