BOVET 1822 is proud to present a bespoke limited edition Récital 27 timepiece, created to mark the upcoming Salón Internacional de Alta Relogeria (SIAR) in Mexico. Taking place in October 2019, SIAR has become recognised as one of the world’s most important watchmaking events outside of Switzerland.
Limited to four timepieces only, the exclusive Récital 27 “Mexico” stands to underline BOVET’s commitment to the finest watchmaking – as well as its incredible expertise in craftsmanship and the decorative arts.
The unique design showcases the Maison’s ability to customise to the highest level and create one-of-a-kind, personalised timepieces. Récital 27 “Mexico” features guilloche subdials, plated in the green of the national flag. The Mexican coat of arms, depicting a golden eagle perched on a prickly pear tree eating a serpent, appears in an elegant watermark on the sapphire back of the timepiece. Finally, the bezel is hand-engraved with a series of concentric geometric motifs typical of Mayan culture.
The timepiece offers three time zones and a moon phase indicator. The two secondary timezones show hours and minutes, and there is a day-night indicator and a city indicator linked to the timezone displayed. The 24 cities, including Mexico City, are also featured in the green of the flag to match the guilloche pattern colour.
Designed by BOVET 1822 owner Pascal Raffy, the “writing slope” case of the Récital 27 is pioneering, featuring a bezel inclined at 6 o’clock. The ingenious concept makes it possible to diversify designs and organize the types of displays by using domes, rollers, discs, and three-dimensional hands to enhance intuitiveness, ergonomics, and elegance.
Created for Mexican collectors, but sure to delight those around with world in a mind-blowing display of craftsmanship, this limited edition Récital 27 is a perfect display of what is possible at BOVET. The Maison’s artisans are amongst the most skilled in the world, handcrafting rare, sophisticated and timeless watches that are brilliantly technical whilst visually inimitable.
