A masterpiece of art and technology, the Bovet Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter Two watch incorporates three patents, including one for the GMT display. Essentially, the watch showcases the time, the date, 24-hour GMT time indication around the world with a second time zone that can be indexed, the phases of the moon in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres, and a magnificent, double-sided flying tourbillon. The power reserve indicator is ingeniously located on the case side between the top lugs, and the entire movement is meticulously hand engraved. The three-dimensional architecture of the movement and the sloped writing-desk shaped sapphire case make this watch mesmerizing. Just 10 pieces will be made using a blue quartz dial (other dial colors are also being made in limited numbers).

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.
