The Bovet turns over a new leaf of innovation with the one-of-a-kind Recital 18 Shooting Star wristwatch

Bovet has been around since nearly two centuries now, crafting some of the world’s most astounding and technologically-advanced timepieces. At the SIHH 2016, the Swiss luxury watchmaker unveiled yet another brainchild called the Recital 18 Shooting Star. The Recital 18 Shooting Star is quite different from all of its predecessors over the centuries however, and comes packed with a number of features that will leave every watch connoisseur day-dreaming of one of these timepieces. The Recital 18 Shooting Star comes with a 5-day tourbillon, created with precision and finesse. While Bovet has certainly pushed up its innovation game with this watch, the Recital 18 Shooting Star continues to possess the same level class and sophistication as the rest of its ancestors.

One of the most eye-catching details of this watch is the one hemisphere world map created in 3D by a cartographer who was specially commissioned for this task. With this, a user can literally “see” every time zone and tell the time of any one of the 24 cities at once. To put this feature into play, all a user needs to do is push down on the crown and the city roller above the hemisphere displays the selected city. The watch uses a hand-wound 17DM01-HU movement by Dimier and a one-minute tourbillon escapement running at 21,600 vph (3 Hertz). The watch also displays the phases of the moon and comes in a white or red gold case with a diameter of 46 mm and a thickness of 18.15 mm.
