Half Time

Half Time

Driven by his original idea and philosophy, Ludovic Ballouard went on to create his second model, the Half Time, which was presented in January of 2012. The Half Time continues with the idea of presenting time in an unusual way with a highly complicated jumping hour movement, which perpetually reminds you that the most important time is the present.

All numerals are divided in half on two disks that rotate in opposite directions, making the numerals unreadable, except for the present time which is whole at the position of 12 o’clock. The minutes are presented in retrograde which is set on a 120° arc at the position of 6 o’clock.


Patented manual winding complication by Ludovic Ballouard: calibre B02.


All cases and crowns are engraved by hand.


All the aspects of the movement are visible to the naked eye. Ludovic’s idea is that the dial should bring a smile to your face while the movement will fascinate you, as you can see the whole complication set moving through the sapphire crystal display back.
