An unrivalled blend of refined technology, up-to-date aesthetic and unparalleled functionally, this watch is a testament to the prowess of Badollet’s craftsmen.
The Crystalball Chronograph is powered by the in-house manually-wound column-wheel mono-push-piece chronograph movement, equipped with a regulator tourbillon. Embellished with a Cotes-de-Geneve motif, the movement boasts a 120-hour power reserve.
The new Badollet watch is offered with a 44 mm 3-part case. The bezel and the back of the watch are sculptured in black PVD-treated 18K white gold, whereas its middle is rendered in black ceramic. The timepiece case is assembled with a sapphire crystal, which features a double-sided anti-reflective treatment. The water-resistance of the case is down to 30 meters.
The Crystalball Chronograph proudly reveals a dial, performed in onyx on 18K white gold base. It demonstrates an 18K white gold hour circle and Roman numerals. The dial is completed with a 30-minute chronograph sub-dial, positioned at 10 o’clock and a 60-second sub-dial, placed at 2 o’clock. The face of the watch also shows off a tourbillon cage, nestled at 6 o’clock.
Keeping the Badollet Crystalball Chronograph watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is a hand-stitched alligator leather strap, featuring a matt or shiny finish. It terminates either in an 18K white gold double or triple folding clasp or a buckle.
The timepiece is expected to be presented at Baselworld 2010.
