The Récital 23 is the first Bovet women’s timepiece to feature the “writing slope” case that features a diamond bezel, diamond dial markers, and diamonds completely embracing the lovely sloped case and sparkles from every angle. In addition, the 22K rotor is lovingly hand-engraved with the “Fleurisanne” design.
Presented in the form of a hemispherical dome, the moon phase indicator majestically corresponds to the volume of the “writing slope” case. The dome’s surface is engraved to evoke the lunar surface and filled with luminescent material. This feat is all the more remarkable due to the indicator’s camber.
It is read via a three-dimensional circular aperture that singlehandedly requires over a day’s work to be manufactured and decorated. The precision mechanism used to drive the moon phase requires correction only once every 122 years.
Hours and minutes occupy an off-center dial at 6 o’clock, while a deeply poetic three-dimensional moon phase is displayed on the upper section of the timepiece.
Keen to develop useful complications that would allow everyday use of the timepiece, Mr. Raffy — Bovet 1822’s Owner —sought to incorporate a push button into the cabochon of the crown so as to be able to adjust the moon phase. The latter is therefore easily modified without needing to use the slightest tool.
Timeless and symbolic, the new limited edition Récital 23 represents the values which drive the artisans of Bovet 1822: passion for fine watchmaking, and a devotion to perpetuate Bovet 1822’s illustrious history with noble new expressions of the timekeeping art.
