Bovet 1822


1 212 888 0505


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, rhodium plated metal, or blue or green quartz - all with a propeller motif.

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.
