Bovet 1822


1 212 257 5015


For the Récital 20 Astérium® Tourbillon, Bovet master watchmakers and artisans mapped out the stars and constellations visible from Earth on a dome of translucent blue quartz, laser-engraved and coated in Super-LumiNova® to create a dazzling true-to-life sky. The watch o!ers retrograde minutes, seconds hand on the tourbillon, equation of time, precise moonphase indicator, solstice and equinox indicator, astrological zodiac and power reserve indicator. The night sky and sidereal indications are governed by an annual calendar mechanism that is on a 365.25-day cycle to reflect the true duration of a full terrestrial orbit. The watch holds two patents, including a double-face tourbillon. The reverse side of the 46mm case features the annual calendar. Just 60 pieces will be made.

Noted for its 19th century pocket watches, Bovet has unfailingly impressed since its start. The Swiss brand has continually captivated watch enthusiasts both through the transparent intricacy of its designs and an elegance that one wouldn't expect to characterize complex machinery. In 2022, Bovet launched curated exhibition of its timepieces to celebrate the its bicentennial. Spanning the entire 200 years, it included pieces from the 1800s, such as those made for the Ottoman Empire and European royalty. Moving across to the early 1900s, the exhibition featured the watch that inspired the patented Amedo system before showcasing the prominent Bovet chronographs of the 1940s and 1950s. And closing the exhibit, ground-breaking astronomical timepieces took the spotlight, in addition to the GHP award-winning timepieces and bespoke Rolls-Royce timepieces designed for its Boat Tail project.
