The Récital 17 is the third timepiece in the DIMIER Collection to be powered by the BOVET Virtuoso II watchmaking specialties caliber. With the Récital 12 and Récital 15, this new movement has already demonstrated carefully considered versatility without the slightest sacrifice in terms of quality, reliability, aesthetics or emotion, regardless of the complications it powers. The Récital 17is another ¬ fine example, presenting new facets in the form of three time zones and a high-precision moon phase that indicates the current phase of the lunar cycle in both hemispheres.
The Récital 17unmistakably belongs to the DIMIER Collection. It offers all of the characteristic features of this collection; the crown at 3 o’clock, the four traditionally stepped lugs and a modern openwork dial revealing the complexity of the different mechanisms including their precision and the care devoted to their decoration. The collection expresses the full extent of the talent and passion of the Manufacture DIMIER 1738 artisans.
The Récital 17 presents three time zones. Logically, the local time occupies the central position, which allows the time to be read intuitively. The two other time zones appear at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock. Each displays a time zone chosen from the 24 existing zones. The indication of the hours and minutes is completed by a day/night disk and a 24-city indicator corresponding to the 24 time zones.
This triple time zone is judiciously complemented by a double moon phase which simultaneously indicates the current phase of the lunar cycle in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The two opposing apertures are linked by a sumptuous compass rose directly machined into the base of the dial. The specific angle created by the position of the two apertures corresponds to the Earth’s axial tilt with respect to the equator, which itself determines the boundary between the contrasting lunar cycles of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. This is a high-precision lunar mechanism, requiring a correction of just one day every 128 years.
In keeping with the DIMIER Collection tradition, the Récital 17features a sapphire case back allowing both sides of the movement to be admired. It reveals the well-known face of the Virtuoso II caliber and in particular its power reserve indicator displaying seven days of autonomy, as well as the triple
seconds hands of the caliber’s iconic mechanics.
Distinctive and innovative, the Récital 17 can meet the requirements of each and every collector, whatever their profession, as the communication methods and mobility that characterize the 21st century call for constant interaction with the entire world. The reliability of its mechanisms, rigorously tried and tested, and the flawless chronometry guaranteed by the balance spring manufactured by the DIMIER 1738 artisans make the Récital 17a timepiece that once again expresses BOVET 1822’s cultivation of the art of being unique.
