ack in 2016, Bovet introduced into their collections a highly innovative, asymmetric case in the shape of an antique writing slope. This unusual arrangement creates a three-dimensional stage for the movement, while making the indications easy and intuitive to read.
With the Brainstorm Chapter Two, the asymmetric case – made from a single piece of transparent sapphire, 47.8mm in diameter – and the sculptural movement form a single, consistent and transparent whole.
- RÉCITAL 26 BRAINSTORM® CHAPTER TWO
- Limited Edition of 10, sapphire “Writing Slope” case with blue quartz dial, patented double face flying tourbillon, patented radial guidance system, patented universal time display, three-dimensional moon phase, five days’ power reserve. Limited edition of 60 fully hand-engraved movements.
The stage is shared by three domes and a tourbillon. The one-minute tourbillon also indicates seconds thanks to tiny indexes fixed to the cage, while the upper dome indicates local time.
The dome at 3 o’clock, which rotates every 24 hours, indicates a second time zone which can be selected from a choice of 24 cities, and the third dome, which also rotates, is an accurate moon-phase, hand-engraved and coated in lume.
Note also the curved shape of the hour and minute hands, the city selector and openworked windows, through which you can read the phase of the moon and contemplate its ascending or descending crescent.
Spectacular scenography, animated by a movement designed and produced entirely in-house, and with an impressive power reserve of five days subtly indicated by a linear display at the base of the watch case, between the two lugs.
