Récital 21 Perpetual Calendar

Bovet 1822


1 212 888 0505


With an unusual writing-desk-sloped case, Récital 21 is a vision in intrigue and technical prowess. This 44.4mm watch combines perpetual calendar functions with a three-dimensional, constantly moving tourbillon escapement and a retrograde date indication that outlines the circular blue dial. The dial is brushed by hand, surface treated, hand painted with eight layers of lacquer, and polished by hand to bring out its luster. The watch is designed to display its information in an easy-to-read manner, with hour and minute hands on the center dial and days and months vertically displayed via apertures. A small circular aperture at 3 o'clock shows the leap year. The patented double-coaxial second mechanism displays the second hand above the tourbillon, and the five days of power reserve are indicated on the back.

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.
