The aesthetic refinement, created by Eric Giroud, is equalled only by the mechanical complexity of this timepiece. The flying tourbillon movement, exclusively designed and developed for Badollet, is deliberately hidden from sight. Visible only through the transparent case-back, the tourbillon carriage recaptures the delicate modesty of vintage watches. The sapphire opening is shaped like the symbol of infinity, in a tribute to time as the universal driving force. Elusive, yet perceptible, immutable and yet exhilarating.
In a 21st century fascinated by disorder and the ephemeral, equilibrium is the exception. The fine balance epitomised by this timepiece, Ivresse, represents an art of living favoured only by those who prefer authenticity to frivolous exuberance
