The rubberized band has a wonderful deep blue Alcantara-lining, and allows for a complete quite comfy fit – a even comfier fit if you have really huge wrists given how the larger-feeling case fits.The motion architecture and skeletonization is pure “haute horology” with a range of fine yet modern decorative details and completing. I am aware that the design of Bovet timepieces makes them not acceptable for everybody, but I still believe most watch lovers can muster behind the execution of technique and skill in these types of watches. Moreover, how frequently to get a watch that conspicuously features a large flying tourbillon and has brightly SuperLumiNova-painted palms (note that on those prototype models, the hands were hand-painted so the lume seems irregular). Bovet will produce the Bovet Pininfarina OttantaSei 10-Day Tourbillon as a limited edition of just 86 pieces. Including all three case styles that are available as the benchmark TPINS002 from 18k red gold, the TPINS001 in organic titanium, and the TPINS003 in DLC-coated black titanium. Last, it appears that Bovet has also upgraded the guarantee on their watches (at least a few of them) in light of moves by other watch industry players, therefore the Bovet Pininfarina OttantaSei 10-Day Tourbillon will have a movement warranty of five years. Not to be overshadowed by the watches being released by brands presenting SIHH 2016, Bovet has published a visually impressive bit of their own. Bovet releases several quite luxurious watches each calendar year, and when this really is really is a indication of things to come for 2016, then we’re excited about the year ahead from Bovet.
What better watch to gift on Valentine’s Day than one with hands that form a subtle heart shape when they meet. The Bovet Récital 11 Miss Alexandra accomplishes this with unusually shaped hour and minute hands that form a heart every hour just before they intersect. They stand out against a decorated dial of guilloched mother-of-pearl. The upper part of the main oval dial is dominated by a realistic moon disk that was created by engraving it with the likeness of the surface of the moon and filling in hollow parts with a luminous material, so that it seems to reflect the sun’s light. The phases are formed by overlapping disks that have been blackened and treated to resemble stars. The moonphase function requires only a single one-day correction every 122 years, and the corrector is placed concentric to the winding and time-setting crown, so it can be adjusted simply by pressing the center of the crown. The central dial is set with 10 diamond indexes. It contains the self-winding Caliber 11DA16-MP, with a 3-day power reserve.
