GRAND PRIX D’HORLOGERIE DE GENÈVE

WATCH BOVET

BOVET 1822, RÉCITAL 22 GRAND RÉCITAL - WINNER OF AIGUILLE D’OR GRAND PRIX  

The much-coveted price is truly deserved by this watch! Take a look and you will see that this is indeed a highly complicated wristwatch. It is also very exquisitely and elaborately decorated. It is built around a tellurium, which is an astronomical complication that shows the position of the earth with respect to the Moon and the Sun. The tellurium display combines with a perpetual calendar with retrograde disk, world time, a one -minute flying tourbillon, and retrograde displays for the power reserve and for the minutes. Breathtakingly amazing!
