Description

In perpetual motion, subtly combining tradition and innovation, the Badollet Company is re-writing the past, the present and the future of exceptional top-of-the-range watchmaking. BADOLLET pursues actively the integration of all the craftsmen and every step needed to create, to realise, to finish and to assemble the collections in its workshops. This after collaborating with renowned Geneva craftsmen. Rarety, quality, dependability, the materials used, the finishing off and the craftmen's expertise all go towards creating unique pieces for a singular brand.

With this watchmaking piece presented at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix, the Badollet Company wished to pay tribute to all those craftsmen whose cleverly contributed talents accommodate all creative whims and give birth to the Exceptional.
The eye is immediately seduced by this enamel dial that showcase two symbols of the town of Geneva.  Rich with traditions, heir to inestimable know-how and the birthplace of innovation, Geneva is today the symbol of quality watchmaking.  Two of the town centre’s historic symbols, the Molard Square and Molard Tower are represented on this piece with its gold engraved hand painted appliques alongside the chiselled, engraved mother-of-pearl water jet, where the Badollet Company workshops are located.

This broad array of craftsmen and precision trades are united for the finishings on the tourbillon-type movement, entirely redesigned by the Badollet Company, and are at one when it comes to designing a watchmaking piece.  Chamfering, chiselling, circular graining and satin finishing are part of those meticulous gestures needed to meet the standards that the Genevan company has set itself regarding its creative process.  High standards that single out the happy owners and representatives of the Badollet Company.

To own a BADOLLET watch means choosing the time to be unique, to be heir to watchmaking expertise going back to the origins of Swiss Made.
