Artistic timekeeper

The Hybris Artistica has a white gold case encrusted with snow-set diamonds, a mother-of-pearl dial covered in gold leaf, with embedded gemstones, and a sapphire or ruby to indicate the minutes. The new design is heightened by the absence of any hands. An orbital flying tourbillon decorated in gilded ivy leaves takes 60 seconds to pivot on itself and 12 hours to rotate around the dial.
