DIMIER Récital 7 Orbis Mundi® Moon Phase

The Dimier collection comprises timepieces driven by exclusive tourbillon movements and complications developed by the DIMIER Manufactory owned by BOVET.

The Récital 7 Orbis Mundi® Moon Phase is a haute horlogerie creation from BOVET – DIMIER, dedicated to travelers. Based on a self-winding movement, the latest module developed and manufactured by DIMIER designers and watchmakers displays a second time-zone. It is indexed to an indicator which shows in an aperture the name of a city located in one of the twenty-four time-zones. In addition, the names of the cities of each of the twenty-four zones can be personalised according to the preferences of every collector.
By activating one of the two push-pieces on the case-band it is possible to advance the hour hand of the second time-zone. The aperture will automatically display the name of a city located in that time-zone. A practical day-night indicator completes this function, meaning that no calculations are required, nor do you need to locate the second time-zone to the east or west of your own position to know if the time shown is day or night.

Indexed to local time, the moon disc features an aventurine sky with gold moons. The precision mechanism of this function is designed so that only a single one-day correction is required every 127 years. The sapphire dial with anti-glare treatment on both sides guarantees perfect clarity and legibility of all information while revealing the gear-trains, pawls and springs that drive this module.

DIMIER Récital 8

First introduced in 2007, the DIMIER Collection is characterised by the four horns of its case and its crown positioned at 3 o’clock.  The collection consists of timepieces featuring exclusive tourbillon movements and complications developed by the DIMIER 1738, Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale.

Introduced in 2012, the Récital 8 condenses in a single timepiece the characteristics and advances that have underpinned the success of this collection since its launch.

Its tourbillon movement is the fruit of an exclusive development in which watchmakers opted for an architecture based on two three-quarter plates. While very demanding, this type of construction typical of the 19th century ensures rigidity and mechanical uniformity.  Moreover,  it  frees  up  even  more  space  for  the  regulating  organ,  making it possible to extend the diameter of the carriage to 13.50mm. This exceptional timepiece displays the time in two time-zones simultaneously. Furthermore, indication of the second time-zone is coupled with a day/ night indicator, and more especially a cities disc indexed to all 24 existing time-zones.

Naturally, the decorative work and finish of this movement left no room for compromise. The white mother-of pearl dials contrast harmoniously with circular anthracite Côtes de Genève decorations. The tourbillon carriage meanwhile appears literally to be suspended by the generous bridge that carries it.

DIMIER Récital 0

The Dimier collection comprises timepieces driven by exclusive tourbillon movements and complications developed by the DIMIER Manufactory owned by BOVET.

The new Récital 0 model has its indications similar to those of the Récital 1. It marks a return to basics and the fundamental values of the tourbillon envisaged by Pascal Raffy when he assigned this project to DIMIER’s designers and master watchmakers. Only a power reserve indicator (7 days) is added to the display of hours and minutes in the centre and of seconds shown by a triple seconds hand carried by the upper pivot of the tourbillon cage.

Research and development of this new timepiece focused mainly on the movement’s architecture. The three-quarter bridges and bottom plate reveal the tourbillon cage suspended between two “cradle” shaped bridges. The cage has a 14mm diameter corresponding to roughly half the total diameter of the movement. These dimensions guarantee exceptional quality and consistency of timing. The absence of a dial reveals the beauty of the movement’s innovative design.

Proposed in diameters of 41mm and 45mm, the red-gold case is also available with a bezel set with baguette diamonds. In total, five different variants are available to meet the specific requirements of every collector.
