Based on the ground floor of the Ritz-Carlton hotel on Central Park South, the new Bovet boutique had a grand opening ceremony late last year, hosted by the owner and Brand President Pascal Raffy. Also in attendance were artisans from the manufacture, demonstrating the hand-painting techniques used in their elaborate custom dials. The New York boutique is the brand’s fourth, with other locations in Moscow, Baku, and Berlin. As they have done in their previous locations, Bovet is offering an exclusive collection of 50 unique timepieces commemorating the New York opening.
Spinning after each 24 hours, the world has a hand over it which indicates either a second time zone or can be set to be a synchronized 24-hour hand. The hand and the world is able to move independently, and that’s obviously component of their inherent complexity of the system. Transferring the 24-hour GMT hand over the world is where more interesting pleasure comes in, as it is linked to the “dual drum” reference town selector placed only over the entire world system. This is maybe one of my preferred complications in the Bovet Recital 18 Shooting Star.When you press at the crown, the mention city advances. To acquire all 24 major time zones, there is a drum that sits inside of the outer drum. This makes more sense once you see it in operation – and it is super cool. I have always liked rolling drum-style screens, but they are rather uncommon. Christophe Claret is a specific fan of these and made such drums into Jean Dunand watches (lastest one here), and most of the current timepieces from Maîtres du Temps. From the Bovet Recital 18 Shooting Star, Bovet made these carefully moving drums to work together with the indicator arrow to signify that the next time zone in conjunction with the GMT hand which goes across the world. It works amazingly well and is tasteful in its implementation in addition to that. Moreover, playing with the machine by pressing in the crown is most likely just too temping a means of overworking the movement and possibly prematurely breaking something, because whoever owns a Recital 18 will likely be playing with this complication quite a bit.
Bovet, the storied Swiss watch manufacture chartered in 1822, has joined the growing ranks of high-end timepiece brands establishing a greater foothold on the American market by opening a flagship boutique in New York City. Known mainly for their incredibly ornate cases and hand-painted dials, Bovet hopes to capture the attention of a growing legion of high-horology enthusiasts and collectors in the Big Apple.
