BOVET 1822 presents a new turquoise guilloché dial version of its Récital 23 watch. It will be available in 18K red and white gold versions, with gem-setting on the case and bezel.
Elegant hour and minute hands gracefully glide over the off-set turquoise guilloche dial, which makes room for the precision moon phase of the Récital 23. In addition, every hour, when the hour and minute hands overlap, their atypical designs form the shape of a heart, outlined in negative space.
Presented in the form of a hemispherical dome, the moon phase indicator majestically corresponds to the volume of the “writing slope” case.
The dome’s surface is engraved to evoke the lunar surface and filled with luminescent material. This feat is all the more remarkable due to the indicator’s camber. It is read via a three-dimensional circular aperture that singlehandedly requires over a day’s work to be manufactured and decorated. The precision mechanism used to drive the moon phase requires correction only once every 122 years.
The push button integrated into the cabochon of the crown allows the owner to adjust the moon phase.
