Through the use of a reverse hand-fitting, the dial of the new Bovet Récital 12 "Monsieur Dimier" reveals many details of the manufacture Dimier movement, including the balance and the gear-train with their symmetrical bridges.
The surfaces of the bridges present circular Côtes de Genève decorations, centred on the axis of the seconds-hand, which lead the eye to the key functions of the calibre.
The time is displayed in the off-centre dial at 3 o’clock with the triple seconds-hand at 9 o'clock.
Positioned symmetrically, two openings have been cut out in the surface of the barrel’s and power reserve’s bridge. The first houses a power-reserve indicator. The second reveals a segment of the single barrel, which guarantees a seven day power reserve.
The Dimier hand-wound movement, beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour, is housed in a 42mm diameter case with an overall thickness of 9.1mm.
For the off-centre hours and minutes dial and the 120° segment of the seconds indicator, Bovet used precious lacquered dials with contrasting numerals which facilitate the readability.
The Bovet Récital 12 will be available in 18-carat red or white gold, in limited editions of 100 pieces per gold colour.
