Haute Time, the ultimate resource for luxury timepiece aficionados, is flooded with new content from Basel World 2012, including exclusive videos of the latest in haute timepieces. Haute Living Co-publisher and Haute Time curator Seth Semilof had the pleasure of meeting Christophe Claret, who introduced Semilof to the X-TREM-1.

“You have a [flying] tourbillon and two bars, one for the tourbillon and one for the mechanism of magnetism,” explained Claret. The rectangular-shaped watch features two steel spheres within sapphire tubes on both sides of the caseband to indicate hours and minutes, and bears similarities to the Porsche 911, Claret’s wheels of choice.

For one year, Claret and his team worked with an engineering professor to manufacture the innovative timepiece, of which only eight were produced. “For me it is very important to come up every year with a new watch,” said Claret. The presentation at Basel World 2013 will be a little different than the $250,000 X-TREM-1, though. “Next year we will come up with low price watches,” divulged Claret.

Gaining an inside look at the industry’s star timepieces directly from the company CEOs demonstrates the respect and passion Haute Time reserves for luxury watches and their corresponding brands.
