Poker

Christophe Claret

After Blackjack and Baccara, Christophe Claret deals another bold winning hand with Poker.

No bluffs, no tells, but a mechanical tour de force that succeeds in containing a pack of 52 cards, and the rules of poker, inside an automaton watch. Driven by an automatic movement whose twin barrels deliver a 72-hour power reserve, Poker combines no fewer than 32,768 gameplays, or 98,304 different combinations for three players. Christophe Claret has even gone as far as to calculate possibilities so that each player has approximately the same chance of winning. The gambling mood continues when the watch is turned over to reveal the astonishing sight of the oscillating weight transformed into a roulette wheel, its arrow pointing to one of the 37 numbers around the flange of these four limited editions of 20 pieces.
