Badollet Observatoire 1872 Minute Repeater watch
The watch case is 44mm wide in 18k white gold, and has unique hinged lugs attached to a black crocodile strap. If you opt for precious jewels, see here the watch as 72 diamonds and and 12 sapphires. Without the jewels, the watch uses Arabic hour numerals. I usually don't say this, but I like the watch with precious jewels better than without.
Functionally the piece uses a highly complex manually-wound mechanical movement. I do not believe that Badollet produces the movement. The Calibre BAD1655 features the time, a flying tourbillon, and a minute repeater complication. All with a very interesting partially skeletonized dial (that reminds me of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Mechanica Grand Sonnerie watch. The rest of the dial is finely machine engraved.
