THE ART OF DECORATION AT ITS BEST !
This year (2017) BOVET is celebrating their 195th anniversary and we couldn’t wait to see the novelties.
The brand is part of the top names (in the Watchmaking industry) delivering each year amazing creations so when we saw the VIRTUOSO VIII, it was (once again) a Wonderful moment! In fact, just the beginning because later we’ve got the Récital 20 Astérium… Definitely a nice day.
BOVET defines the VIRTUOSO VIII with three words : Reliability - Chronometry - Decorative Arts
The « Decorative arts » part is the most obvious. The level of decoration, finishing and overall execution is breathtaking!
Both sides are filled with fine details and patterns, it's comparable to a painting in a museum.
The Manufacture is known for its reliability and precise calibers. With the 17BMos-GD, BOVET is offering 10 days of power reserve (with one barrel only). The patented double face flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock is stunning and carries a variable inertia balance wheel. A small arrow screwed to the carriage wheel points the seconds.
We love the big date aperture and how they developed the discs. Looking closely, the proportions of the numbers within their environment result in a sort of « visual trick »
Last but not least, the date can be simply modified by pressing the crown, a very confortable and convenient mechanism.
Our Hats off ! BOVET.
