Take a look at this Bovet Récital 20 Astérium Watch! We are already in love with it!

Watchmaker Bovet creates some of the most masterfully crafted watch, which is both complicated and good-looking.

In 2016, they have released the Bovet Récital 18 Shooting Star watch, which was a limited, otherworldly watch.

In addition to the recently announced Virtuoso VII 10-Day Flying Tourbillon Big Date release, the company is continuing to amaze us with its famous tradition of their Récital models with the Bovet Récital 20 Astérium watch.

That tradition includes a flying flying tourbillon with a night sky chart, perpetual calendar, and a celestial array of astronomical functions, all with a 10-day power reserve.

It is a beautiful masterpiece that has written all over the Bovet’s reputation for making stunning timepieces.

Bovet has this thing; it knows how to best capture the hearts of those fascinated by impeccable timepieces and creates the best pieces to be like a symphony on the wrist.

With all that being said, it is safe to say that the translucent blue sapphire dome stands out first.

On its display, the timepiece has been fully laser-engraved with a map of the stars and constellations visible from Earth before being filled in with Super-LumiNova.

The Bovet Récital 20 Astérium watch is 46mm in diameter and it is built around the concept of the sidereal year, which follows the actual orbital period of the Earth around the Sun – 365.25 days.

As it moves along the dedicated 24-hour dial, it also points north and carries the elliptical window characteristic of the night sky in addition to indicating the time.

“The movement is the 17DM02-SKY – a hand-wound caliber that operates at a frequency of 18,000vph.”

“The Bovet Récital 20 Astérium will be made in either red gold, white gold, or platinum case configurations which can be customized as Bovet has historically offered. It comes on an alligator leather strap fitted with an 18K red or white gold ardillon buckle.”

“TIME IS DEFINED BY the position of the stars in the sky. Based on this undeniable fact, the night sky was chosen to play the ‘starring’ role in this new exceptional timepiece. Faithful to the underlying principles governing complication development at BOVET 1822, this sky map was designed to be functional, precise and intuitive all at once.” as told by the company on their website.
