Christophe Claret

Christophe Claret is an eponymous Swiss watchmaker and watch manufacturer.


Christophe Claret is a specialist maker of complex watch movements Tourbillons, repetitions, chronographs, split time displays or perpetual calendars. Before he started his own business, he worked for 10 months with Roger Dubuis, another promising young watchmaker. Claret established his own workshop in 1986 and began delivering exclusive movements and watches for high-end watchmakers in the following years. In 1987, Ulysse Nardin became the first major client with an order for 20 minute repeater movements. Other clients include Breguet, Cartier, Chopard, Corum, de Grisogono, Franck Muller, Girard-Perregaux, Harry Winston, and Parmigiani. Many of these had high-end movement workshops of their own but chose Claret for his ability to deliver chiming movements.

In 2003 Christophe Claret, together with Thierry Oulevay, who had previously worked at Piaget and Bovet, founded the watch manufacturer Jean Dunand.

Claret himself has been called on by “super manufacturers”, delivering the Harry Winston Opus 4 in 2004 and co-creating the Maître du Temps Chapter One tourbillon with Roger Dubuis and Peter Speake-Marin In 2008.
