Hybris Artistica Mystérieuse

Jaeger-LeCoultre 2017

ref. Q52224X8
Men's

Hybris Artistica Mystérieuse square

 

 

Like a spider weaving its web, Jaeger-LeCoultre has

painstakingly woven the skeletonised decor of this sculptural watch, to draw

the eye deep into a magnificently executed staging that shows time with neither

hour nor minute hands. The Hybris Artistica Mystérieuse is outstanding from all

points of view. Visually, a mother-of-pearl overlay, carved like lace, delicately

encloses the blue aventurine dial below. Technically, the automatic movement

was developed to allow an uninterrupted view of the Gothic-inspired decoration.

The hours are shown by the position of the orbital flying tourbillon that seems

to hover above the dial, while the disc on the flange counts the minutes as

they pass. The scene continues on the sides of the pink gold case, and on the

movement by way of subtle touches of engraving and a flash of aventurine.
