BOVET celebrates Recital 21 Perpetual Calendar with Retrograde Date

BOVET celebrates Recital 21 Perpetual Calendar with Retrograde Date In 2016, Bovet 1822 unveiled the Shooting Star tourbillon, the first timepiece in an exclusive collection dedicated to astronomy. The Astérium and Grand Récital tourbillons then followed in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Beyond the technical specificities of each of the three timepieces, this trilogy explores new ways of expressing time measurement. Its characteristic writing-slope shaped case is both its inspiration and support. Designed by Bovet 1822 owner, Mr. Raffy, the “writing slope” case features a bezel inclined at 6 o’clock. This ingenious idea makes diversifying the types of displays possible by using domes, rollers, discs, and three-dimensional hands to enhance intuitiveness, ergonomics, and elegance. The three-dimensional design prioritizes information for better readability and brings the collector’s eye to the heart of the movement to discover the excellence found in each detail.

As seen by the numerous awards bestowed on the trilogy’s timepieces and the recent awarding of the Aiguille d’Or Grand Prix to the Grand Récital by the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, collectors and experts commend the stylistic revolution led by the “writing slope” case. Mr. Raffy thus logically meets collectors’ expectations by simultaneously introducing four complications developed specifically to be housed within the “writing slope” case. Among them, the Retrograde Perpetual Calendar Récital 21.

Aside from the perpetual calendar in the remarkable Grand Récital tourbillon, this function had yet to be introduced in the Dimier Collection. The Récital 21 thus carves out a place of honor in the collection.

Just like the hand-decorated movement, which has been executed to the most exacting standards, the dial showcases the range of the BOVET 1822 artisanal virtuosity. For the central dial and the seconds dial, they have chosen the iconic blue circular brushed finish, which has been widely embrace since its introduction in 2015. After the surface brush treatment has been carefully applied, the dial is colored and artisans then apply eight layers of lacquer. These are then polished to provide the dial’s luster and characteristic depth. Making great use of the unique volume of the “writing slope” case, the dial artisans and watchmakers have combined their efforts to make the seconds hand sweep under the hours and minutes dial, a cleverly choreographed and truly noble expression of time.

The peripheral surface of the calendar indicator is rhodium plated and the collector can choose between a circular “Côtes de Genève” motif or the “Fleurisanne” motif hand-engraved by the Maison’s artist-engravers.

The Retrograde Perpetual Calendar Récital 21 is available in Titanium and red gold. Even the most demanding collectors will be awestruck by this elegant timepiece’s ease of use, as well as its complex technical components, all made according to the strictest demands of artisanal haute horlogerie, as Maison BOVET watchmakers done since 1822.
