Using their extensive experience, BOVET 1822’s watchmakers designed the Récital 27 by making great use of the emblematic "writing slope" case's proportions and thus meeting collectors' expectations by offering them no fewer than three time zones.
The choice of three time zones is not insignificant. Historically, Maison BOVET was founded in three separate time zones simultaneously. Indeed, when it was founded on May 1, 1822, the Bovet brothers were already present in Switzerland, London and China. Beyond this historical anecdote, the three time zones offer collectors an answer suited to the modern world and to the immediacy of communications on a global scale. The first time zone is the center, or local time, and there are two subdials that can be set independently to any of the worldwide 24 time zones, and each has a day/night indicator as well. The in-house, manufacture movement powering this timepiece is produced and assembled completely in BOVET’s own facilities, including the hairspring and the regulating organ, and has a power reserve of seven full days.
A domed moon phase indicator completes the information appearing on the timepiece's dial. Its surface is engraved to evoke the lunar surface and for heightened realism, the lower sections hand-filled with Super-LumiNova®. The precision mechanism used to drive the moon phase requires correction only once every 122 years.
The Récital 27 is available in grade 5 titanium and in 18K red gold.
