Ludovic Ballouard has created a special edition wristwatch to support the Only Watch 2021 charity event.
The Half Time “Vinyl 33 Tours” has a platinum case with a hand-wound mechanical movement beating inside. Inspired by the music’s healing properties, this one-of-a-kind timepiece features a vinyl record jumping hour dial and stylus-themed retrograde minutes.
Ludovic Ballouard’s philosophy is to live for the present and his watches reflect this by only displaying the present hour. On his patented jumping hour Half Time, the hour numerals are cut by two counter-rotating disks that only align correctly at 12 o’clock to display the current hour. Retrograde minutes in the bottom half of the dial complete the displays.
For Only Watch 2021 Ballouard’s unique piece “Vinyl 33 Tours” has transformed the dial into a vinyl record on a turntable: the counter-rotating disks displaying hours become a record while a stylus moves across the record while displaying retrograde minutes.
