Poker shows completion of the trilogy watches games Christophe Claret, the sides of the 21 Blackjack and Baccarat. Poker should actually be the first timepieces launched by the fun factory. However, the technical difficulties of transcription watch this game decided otherwise.
No technical solution had been found by the five manufacturers Manufacturing in relation to the complexity of the game design gears and bring in a mechanical movement — that instrument a complete set of 52 cards and include rules poker — is a real achievement that offers new technical perspectives of Haute Horlogerie. In total, the watch combines 32,768 different parts of the game. The odds of winning were calculated so that they all essentially the same chance of winning.
Poker allows engaging in genuine parts to three players, according to the most popular variant of poker: Texas Hold’em. As a reminder of the rules, a game of Texas Hold’em begins with the distribution of two hole cards per player that is visible alone. Gradually add five open cards: three called the flop, after the first round of betting, another card, the turn, after a second, and the last one, the river . To have the best hand in Texas Hold’em poker, it is necessary to have the best possible combination of five cards among the seven that the player has.
No less than 655 pieces make up this factory self-winding caliber, entirely new, with two barrels for a power reserve of approximately 72 hours. In addition to its fun features, the watch does not fail to tell the time with a duo core needles.
Usability of Poker is also impressive and unexpected as its intrinsic complexity. Three players confront around the clock. This weapon launch a spring which simultaneously four concentric disks, one of sapphire, on which the cards are printed. No way to speculate according to the position of the discs. After a few moments of necklaces come stop at random. All discs are mounted on ball bearings ceramic or ruby to rotate freely as possible.
Once the pusher at 9 actuated cards are distributed and mixed at 6 am. An ingenious mechanism oriented louvers makes them invisible to other players. After this first time, the pusher at 10 reveals the flop, three cards that appear to the left of the dial. Another push 8h reveals in turn turn, map to the right of the dial. Finally, the same push distributes the river, also to the right of the dial. True to his mastery of striking watches, Christophe Claret has not failed to provide it with a cathedral gong that sounds each time the flop and turn markers. The time showdown happened.
Entirely manufactured and assembled in the factory, the dial of the watch has been reflected Poker to achieve a perfect readability of the time and play subtle decor, matt black ring, openwork of playing cards, there is a silver background. Iconic brand, needles ruby and titanium — the most expensive to produce because of the complexity of machining these precious materials — are enhanced phosphor. Hours are suggested directly on the bezel to avoid making the scene. With still 77 components, the perfectly balanced dial allows three players to play with all the required concentration.
Transparent background in fact opens the panorama on the roulette, embodied by the oscillating mass. This construction of the winding rotor is iconic collection of interactive watches Christophe Claret. Once launched by one or two wave motions, oscillating weight pivots few moments before stopping: the chips are down! An arrow points to one of 37 digits placed on an internal flange. If it were, it would have been placed using a special key facing a green emerald set on the bottom.
