Christophe Claret - Straight Egyptian World Championship

Christophe Claret Straight Egyptian World Championship

Christophe Claret at the Straight Egyptian World Championship in Milan.

October 15th and 16th saw the fourth edition of the Straight Egyptian World Championship (SEWC), a horse racing competition exclusively reserved for Arabian stallions and attracting more than 40 horse-owning families.

Christophe Claret exhibited several models in its collection on this occasion, notably the Layla and Mecca watches intended for a Middle Eastern audience.
Layla is the counterpart of Margot, the first ladies’ watch to have won the Ladies’ High-Mech Watch Prize in the 2014 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. With Layla, one can play the same famous “plucking the daisy” game (he loves me a little, loves me lots…), but with texts in Arabic.  The main difficulty for this model was to reproduce the randomness of nature. Meanwhile, a mirascope (a kind of hologram) in the dial center of the Mecca model highlights the Kaaba “Sacred Mosque” of the Mecca.
