Bovet proves once again, a maison really special. The uniqueness of the brand lies in a perception distinctive of elegance in which integrity and craftsmanship are carefully preserved, as is also the case in the new timepiece dedicated to travellers. Complex and highly decorated, it shows a multi-fused display unique timetables.
The new Bovet Recital 27 is at the same time a practical and highly technical watch, which stands out for its three-dimensional design. It simultaneously shows four complications specifically created to be housed in the large case made of grade 5 titanium o in 18k rose gold, which has a diameter of 46.30 mm.
The local time is logically displayed in the center of the clock. At 3 and 9 a.m., two sub quadrants indicate additional time zones. The city rings can be set independently as Bovet's watchmakers, thanks to their experience, have designed the Récital 27 to offer collectors three time zones, adjustable according to the daylight saving time or standard time of each of the selected zones. For each additional time zone, the hour and minute indication is completed by a day and night view.
Thanks to its intuitive correction system, the three time zones are individually adjustable and collectors who wish, will be able to customize the records of the cities by choosing locations as they please. This practical time zone indication is paired with a dome-shaped dual-phase lunar display, showing the lunar cycle for both the northern and southern hemispheres. Its surface is delicately engraved to evoke the lunar relief, and the lower sections are filled with luminescent material. The extremely precise mechanism that guides the indication of the moon phase requires a correction only every 122 years.
Turning the clock, sapphire glass offers a view without obstacles of manual-wound movement caliber 17DM04-3FPL, where we can see the seconds using a dial sector and the indication of the 7-day reserve of charge whose energy comes from a single barrel.
The Bovet Récital 27 is complemented by a alligator leather strap with daring buckle. Proposed in a limited edition of only 60 movements, available in grade 5 titanium (approximately EURO 65,000) and 18K red gold.
The choice of three time zones is significant. Historically, the Maison was founded in three different time zones: when the May 10, 1822, brothers Bovet were already present in Switzerland, a London and in China. Beyond beyond this historical fact, the triple time zone offers collectors a response to the needs of modern life and the immediacy of worldwide communications.
The success of the multiple time zones produced by Bovet demonstrates collectors' growing interest in useful functions, ergonomics and timepieces that are intuitive and easy to use.
