When I met with the Swiss in early 2018, Pascal Raffy of Bovet from Switzerland personally introduced me to the gorgeous and complex new flagship Bovet Récital 22 Grand Récital watch with advanced complications. The 22nd model in the respected Récital series is clearly so “grand” that it requires the use of the word “Récital” twice in the official name of the product. Mr. Raffy is usually passionate and proud of his new “baby”, and he is keen to point out the many technical and aesthetic elements of Récital 22 Grand Récital.
Please note the presentation frame (I mean spherical) that comes with the Récital 22 Grand Récital watch. In the image below, you will see Mr. Raffy placing his hands on the star globe that comes with each timepiece. The electronic equipment in the demonstration area will emit a charming light display when the watch is turned on in a “static” place. This is a wonderful way to store such products and helps to make the most expensive toys in essence the most refined taste. Therefore, I like all the work Bovet continues to do on the subsequent interesting Récital series of timepieces, which are based on the previous interesting models.
We have not yet covered every timepiece in the Bovet Récital series, but we have covered quite a few of them. Just search for “Bovet Récital” and you will see a series of fascinating and fascinating watch directions that Bovet has taken in the series over the years. About six months before the debut of Bovet Récital 22 Grand Récital, we are here to provide hands-on practice of the Bovet Récital 20 Asterium watch. Bovet will produce 60 watches for the Récital 22 Grand Récital series, half of which will be 18k gold (reference number R220001) and the other half will be 950 platinum (reference R22002).
The Bovet Récital 22 Grand Récital starts with a round case, which has asymmetrical thickness due to its wedge shape. This is not Bovet Récital’s first timepiece, and it does make the dial more ergonomic. This also helps to make the overall design of the watch more distinctive. Otherwise, the round case is quite large, but it is also very wear-resistant, with a width of 46.3 mm and a thickness of 19.6 mm (at the widest point). The case is water-resistant to 30m, with anti-reflective coating sapphire crystals sandwiched between the top and bottom. The case is equipped with a series of embedded buttons that can correct various functions provided by the movement. In addition to the crown, the case is also located at the 12 o’clock position, with large eye-catching buttons. When pressed, this button will advance all calendar settings by one day. If the power of the mainspring is weakened, the complexity of resetting the calendar will become easier (unless you remember to manually wind the manual winding movement every week, otherwise this It will definitely happen).
As with other similar timepieces, there is no obvious difference between the mechanical movement inside the Popular cheap watch and the dial. The two are directly connected together because the scale, dial and other indicators are built directly on the movement itself. In addition, Bovet Récital 22 Grand Récital also uses a lot of hand decoration, carving and painting. The semi-finished globe display is beautiful and carefully drawn by hand. The best visual technique used in the painting process is the application of luminous enamel paint.
Bovet has tried this type of luminous paint in the past with great success. In this article, you can see a small number of images that were illuminated by the dial in the dark after the face of Récital 22 Grand Récital was filled with enough light. Most timepieces with this traditional style and complexity will not have the kind of “light display” shared with the owner. That being said, the time display system is not fully illuminated. The Review fake watch only displays the time in a 24-hour clock, and the hour is illuminated instead of counterclockwise.
