Christophe Claret wanted to pay homage to Napoleon Bonaparte on the occasion of the bicentenary of his death by producing an exceptional watch. The Napoleon is a Westminster flying tourbillon minute repeater provided with a jaquemart automata featuring Napoleon with his soldiers.

The Westminster minute repeater mechanism allows you to play a musical tune when the quarters ring. Each quarter has a different ringtone [ C D E G; G D E C; E G D C.] The ringtone results from a collaboration between Christophe Claret and a virtuoso violinist, offering notes with optimal quality.

The musical tone is accompanied by the animation of the stage automatons.

The Napoleon is available in two limited editions – 8 pieces in Rose Gold and 8 pieces in Titanium.  All unique, with different paintings of battles.
