Claret has also endowed the watch with a constant force system. The constant force spring, wound up by the barrel, releases the same energy at regular intervals, making the torque to the escapement more constant. Twin mainspring barrels guarantee an an optimal power reserve of more than 80 hours. Finally, a patented stop seconds mechanism stops the balance when setting the time.
The Maestoso case measures 44mm in diameter and is available in 5N red gold, anthracite PVD titanium with white gold, or anthracite PVD titanium with red gold, priced from $178,000 to $186,000.
