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