Bovet is a brand whose watches often make the Rococo feel a bit plain and under-decorated, frequently based on technically proficient, but uninspired movements. For their new 2014 collection, they've got more of that, but also some actually interesting pieces.
First one of their old-style pieces, a massive 5-day tourbillon and retrograde perpetual calendar in an 18kt gold case that converts from a wristwatch to a pocketwatch. The movement is a Dimer (the movement division of Bovet) Virtuoso III, with 59 jewels, 21,600 vph.
Some of the nicer new pieces, both in the Recital collection.
|Recital 15 - Jumping hour, retrograde minute hand and something they're confusingly calling a "coaxial reverse seconds-hand", and a power-reserve hand, driven by the Virtuoso II with 33 jewels and a power-reserve of 5 days. The case is 42×12.8mm and 18kt white or rose gold. Clearly the rose-gold case is available with diamonds on the bezel.||Recital 12 Monsieur - With only hours, minutes, seconds and power-reserve hands. The Virtuoso II Specialite movement has 33 jewels and a reserve of 7 days.|
The Recital 11 Miss Alexandra is back to the old style with a massive moon-phase indication over the time, set on a dial of guilloched mother-of-pearl. Notice that the hands form a heart-shape when they overlap, because it's a ladies watch! The movement is caliber 11DA16MP with 29 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 3 days.
