Bovet 1822 – Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter One

By Roberta Naas

An all-new case shape for Bovet 1822 — with the slope of an old-fashioned writing desk — is one of the architectural highlights of the new Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter One watch. Fashioned from sapphire, the crystal-clear 48mm Dimier writing desk case allows for viewing of the highly complicated movement.

The all-new, hand-wound Caliber 17DM04-SMP displays the hours, minutes and seconds on the tourbillon; big date; dual hemisphere moonphase indication; and 10-day power-reserve readout.

The movement is built vertically atop a small mainplate and holds three patents, including a patent on the double-face flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, the spherical differential winding system and the tri-dimensional tooth concept with multiple gearing. Just 60 movements will be made, and collectors have the choice of dial colors: black, rhodiumplated metal, or blue or green quartz — all with a propeller motif.

Price: $318,000 in sapphire
