纳沙泰尔山脉集中了瑞士三分之一的制表人才，从而凝聚世界独一无二的工艺和技术。1989年，Christophe Claret 就决定从这里起步。这位杰出的制表大师不满足于已为前人所达的成就，他致力于技术创新，不断突破局限，开拓未知领域，设计出新颖独创的读时方式。在金色阳光庄园，一切皆旨在促进创意交流、碰撞并实现强强融合。
Christophe Claret 不懈追求三维创新，从传统制表工艺中汲取精华缔造自己的传奇。如同使用传统食材烹饪高级美食的星级主厨，他始终遵循高级制表的伟大传统创造前卫表款。他的信条是：在制表界，一切皆成传统，一切皆可创新。
制表大师Christophe Claret深明环境对创新力的影响，力求赋予员工良好的工作氛围。办公室和工坊定期修葺，工作安排也以员工的福祉为先。因为Christophe Claret明白，非凡工匠唯有身心舒畅，工作才会卓有效率。
因此最高端的专业人才在静谧的环境下，辅之以一套超级现代化的设备。Christophe Claret 以此方式打造高级钟表，如同一个共同的挑战在激情和毅力的坚持下，在情感和梦想的浇筑下，得以具化实现。在金色阳光庄园，“不可能”这个词已被长期摒弃，取而代之的是“挑战”。
自1989年起，制表师致力于集中所有必要条件，力求在机械制表方面，创出非凡、独特和卓越的作品。一丝不苟地追求极致，这一信条Christophe Claret 从未背离，他的时计更以此为荣。
The Neuch?tel mountain region is home to almost one-third of Swiss watchmaking workforce, and thus to a body of expertise and skills that is unique in the world. That is precisely why Christophe Claret chose to set up his business there 22 years ago.
Nonetheless, the master-watchmaker would never be content with merely redoing things that have already been done. He is resolutely oriented towards invention, constantly pushing the envelope, exploring uncharted territory and suggesting original ways of reading the time. Within the Manoir du Soleil d’Or, everything is organised in such a way as to ensure that ideas flow freely, are confronted with those of others and thus forged through such constant contact between different skills.
Christophe Claret watches are an inspired reflection of watchmaking genius expressed through its most powerful manifestation: perpetual emotion. Playful, creative and unconventional, these “machines” are highly complex and original models intended for devotees of rare and subtly offbeat products that are nonetheless firmly positioned in the sphere of Haute Horlogerie.
In his constant quest for three-dimensional innovations, Christophe Claret draws upon the best of traditions in order to forge his own legend. Like the great multi-starred chefs who practice the art of high gastronomy by working with classic products, he creates tomorrow’s watches while respective the immense legacy of Haute Horlogerie. His credo: “In watchmaking, everything has already been done, and everything has yet to be invented.”
Because he has grasped the fact that surroundings profoundly influence creativity, the master-watchmaker has always made it his duty to offer his personnel a pleasant working environment. Offices and workshops are therefore regularly improved, and the work organisation is tailored to enhance individual well-being, since Christophe Claret is well aware that an exceptional artisan must feel good in order to be effective.
The greatest professionals are thus able to work with ultra-modern equipment in a serene and peaceful setting. That is how Christophe Claret views Haute Horlogerie, as a collective challenge that is met by passion and perseverance, nurtured by emotions and dreams. At the Manoir du Soleil d’Or, the word “impossible” has long since been banished from the company’s vocabulary, and replaced instead by the term “challenge”.
For 22 years, the watchmaker has been seeking to put together a set of ideal conditions for the birth of prodigious, atypical and excellent horological mechanisms. Christophe Claret has never swerved from this highly demanding path towards absolute perfection and culminating in a range of extraordinary watches.
