BOVET 1822 Virtuoso V New Model with Blue Guilloche, « Fleurisanne » Hand-Engraved Dial (Amadéo Fleurier Complications)

Introduced to the BOVET collections in 2015, Virtuoso V was the first timepiece powered by the Virtuoso II caliber to feature additional complications. These were a jumping hour paired with retrograde minutes. Five years later, the Maison’s artisan watchmakers and dial-makers have joined forces to give it a new face.

While the watchmakers worked on displaying all the information on the same level, the original stepped arrangement has given way to greater classicism, which enhances the artistic crafts and exemplary finishes of all the components. The dial-makers drew on their considerable talent to create this new face.

The readability of the hour and minute displays is increased thanks to its elegant blue lacquered guilloché. It contrasts subtly with the rest of the surface, which is entirely hand-engraved with the emblematic “Fleurisanne” motif that has symbolised the true supremacy of BOVET’s craftsmen in terms of decorative arts for almost two centuries.

In terms of technology, the Virtuoso V integrates two complications that are difficult to combine: jumping hours and retrograde minutes. The jump of the hour disk must be perfectly synchronized with the jump of the minute hand. This timepiece belongs to the Fleurier Complications Collection and is fitted with the patented Amadeo convertible case, allowing it to be transformed into a reversible wristwatch, a table clock, or a pocket watch, without the need for a single tool. As a result, hours and minutes can be found on both sides of the movement.

A power reserve indicator completes the indications by displaying a remarkable autonomy of five days, ensured by the use of a single barrel. Finally, to add to the timepiece’s functions, the watchmakers developed a corrector independent of the hour disk that can display a different time zone on each side of the timepiece.
