Christophe Claret Blackjack 21 - Baselworld 2011
April 26, 2011
One of the most innovative haute horology pieces introduced this year at Baselworld was the Christophe Claret Blackjack 21. It comes in a titanium, white gold or pink gold case and has a 40-jewel automatic winding movement that runs at 4Hz and has a 72-hour power reserve. Functions include hour and minutes, as well as three highly addictive casino games built-in. The first game, Blackjack, takes place on the dial and is controlled via pushers. The cards shuffle behind the transparent smoked dial and appear through apertures when cards are dealt. The second game, dice, is on the side of the case in a clear compartment that has mini dice, allowing you to basically shake the watch and play dice on your wrist. The third game is roulette, just flip the watch over and the rotor acts as a working roulette wheel, by just flipping your wrist with the watch in your hand.
