Watch Endorsement for Poker King Bounahra

The Manufacturer Claret was delighted to announce its partnership with Badih “Bob” Bounahra, one of the best No-Limit Holdem poker players on the planet. Originally from Lebanon but living in Belize, Bob was the first citizen of Belize to participate in the WSOP Main Event Final Table this November. This event is to this fascinating card game what the Masters is to tennis – the final confrontation of the best competitors in the world – accompanied by a good financial reward, the famous gold bracelet and the title of world champion.

6,865 players started Day 1 of the WSOP Main Event 2011. They all played for eight very long days until only nine players remained – The November Nine. Amongst them was Badih Bounahra, who was sort of a surprise guest. Not because of his age (49), but due to his non-professional status. While his warm, attractive personality allows him to live his passion for poker to the fullest, he has many other cards dealt in his hand – an active entrepreneur and father to three children. In his opinion, poker must remain a fun activity.

For all these reasons, Christophe Claret decided to sponsor Badih Bounahra, not only for the 2011 WSOP Main Event, but for the long haul. During this time, the ace of cards will sport the watchmaker’s Soleil d’Or emblem and wear a 21 Blackjack on his wrist, an interactive watch with fun complications that was launched last spring at Baselworld. At the last world watch making fair, Christophe Claret’s most recent creation made a big impression with its original presentation of three completely new complications in the form of casino games – dice, cards and roulette. These are all in addition to the watch’s usual hour and minute functions.

When the art of mechanical watch making meets that of the most famous card game, expect a Royal Flush!
