Badollet Crystalball Chronograph

The broad variety of middle parts imparts different technical features and qualities to this Instrument of Time. When fitted with a sapphire dial-ring, the Crystalball highlights the movement and adds a transparent touch to the case. Lightness is the keynote in the titanium version. Zirconium ceramics, an extra-hard material not sensitive to heat, imparts its strength to the case.

Issued in editions that are by nature limited and personalised, the Crystalball Chronograph is available in multiple combinations and available on a genuine crocodile leather strap complete with a white gold folding clasp.

Undoubtedly one of the hardest complications to fully master, the monopusher chrongoraph is one of the most subtle expressions of horological expertise. When combined with a tourbillon regulator, it becomes a truly exceptional work of art.

Its sophisticated, streamlined case in 150 palladium-coated white gold, measuring 44 mm in diameter, houses the imposing BAD1602 hand-wound calibre.

This monopusher column-wheel chronograph movement with tourbillon regulator is endowed with a 120- hour power reserve and drives the hour and minute indications, the 60-second and 30- minute chronograph counters at 1.30 and 10.30 o’clock respectively, the power-reserve display on the back of the movement, as well as a flying tourbillon appearing through the dial opening at 6 o’clock.

Visible through both the transparent case-back and the dial opening, the meticulous finishes – bevelling, circular graining and Côtes de Genève motifs – skilfully reveal the inherent added value of this Haute Horlogerie creation.
