I recently had the opportunity to participate in the grand opening of the new Swiss watch store at Wynn Las Vegas. One of the greatest pleasures (and honors) of this event is to experience Bovet 1822 Récital 22 Grand Récital firsthand, one of the craziest complex watches on the planet, and a true masterpiece of modern watchmaking. This highlights the fact that Bovet Récital 22 Grand Récital won the Gold Diamond Award or the highest award at the 2018 Geneva Haute Horlogerie Awards, the most prestigious in the watchmaking industry.
This watch is built around tellurium. Tellurium is an astronomical model that shows the relative position and relationship between the sun, moon and earth. In this case-no pun intended-the sun is represented by a beautiful one-minute flying tourbillon, the earth as seen from a point above the North Pole is hand-painted, and the moon revolves around the earth once every other month, or every 29.53 days. The fact that these types of astronomical movements can be mechanically designed to work so perfectly is absolutely incredible to me. And the watch, including the complete perpetual calendar shown on the back, is accurate to a day of error of 122 years. Yes, that is incredible.
This watch is limited to 60 pieces. Now, I am sure you are interested in the price of Récital 22 Grand Récital. Obviously, this is not a watch that most of us can buy, but if you are a fan of high-end watches like me, then it is good to know that such a thing exists in the world.
Today, we experienced one of the craziest complex copy watches in the world in the “Swiss Watch” boutique at Wynn Las Vegas, and of course the top winner of the 2018 Geneva Haute Horlogerie Awards. I mean Bovet Recital 22 Grand Recital.
Okay, the metal to be produced here is one of No. 60. Now, I say this watch is crazy, which is absolutely correct, but it is just crazy. Before introducing all the functions of the watch, let us introduce some specifications. The case has a diameter of 46.3 mm and a thickness of 19.6 mm. It is made of 18k rose gold or platinum and has a full-grain alligator leather strap, but disappointingly, it is not waterproof.
This is definitely a big watch. If you are considering that watch is too big, I would say that the size here is completely irrelevant, because it truly reflects the beauty, ingenuity, craftsmanship and passion inside the case. What we should really pay attention to here.
This watch is built around tellurium. Tellurium is an astronomical model that shows the relationship and relative positions of the sun, moon and earth. The one-minute beautiful flying tourbillon represents the sunshine here. The earth can be seen from a point above the North Pole, and it is hand-painted, even though there are clouds everywhere. ladies replica watches
The earth completes a complete rotation every 24 hours, marking it orbiting the sun. The hour is expressed in units of the earth, and the fixed hand at 6 o’clock indicates the relative position of the wearer and the time of day. The earth has also applied a luminescent material, which is absolutely eye-catching when it is charged and without light. Around the earth, we have the moon, which completed its journey around the earth in one religious assembly month or 29.53 days.
The moon phases are listed in the ring around the earth. On the left side of the earth is the retrograde minute display. On the right, we have an indicator of the counter-action reserve. The strength of nine days was completely injured. You can see the date through the hole below the minute display.
The entire display here is accurate to one day’s error in 122 years. That is the front, now let’s look at the bottom cover, which is equally impressive. Here, we are viewing the complete perpetual calendar. The day of the week, month and date are displayed on the mobile retrograde disk, which is one of the five total patents Bovet has on the watch. We also provide windows for displaying the year and the time of day. One of my favorite things about this movement and case back is the three inscriptions here. I will help me get rid of the terrible French and then translate. The top display is “Serving the punctual gentleman”, the left is “Made with delicate hands”, and the right is “So we have proven long-term value.” Obviously, Recital 22 Grand Recital is more than just a watch.
For Bovet, this is an absolutely amazing achievement in the watchmaking industry and a true work of art. I think it’s fair to say that this is not a product that allows most people to have the purchasing power, but a enthusiast as a high-end watch manufacturer is happy to know that there is such a thing, not only that, but also imagine Bovet Recital 22 Grand Recital Such enthusiasm, innovation and vision also exist. My sincere thanks to Bovet and the Swiss Watch Association for the opportunity to bring this watch to you. It is definitely not something you can see every day!
