Bovet has continued to boasts its USP, incredibly complex watches that seem to have floating mechanisms. This time round, its decided to show off the 60-piece doubled sided tourbillion.
Working top to bottom, the watch’s 46mm dial has a blue guilloché pattern, then working down to the day/night indicator, followed by red or white gold or platinum hours and minutes hands, these are sandwiched between two other dials of their own, able to tell time in two other time zones.
These two separate watch dials are on hemispherical earth maps, which can also glow in the dark.
Finally when working down this complex timepiece is the tourbillon, of which is patented by Bovet as it is double sided and seems suspended between the sapphire glass.
The winding mechanism has been calculated and designed to ensure that only 75 turns of the crown are needed to provide ten days of power reserve. Similarly, each secondary time zone has two correctors with which their display can be adjusted quickly.
“Patented in 2010, the Amadeo system transforms a timepiece into a reversible wristwatch, a table clock, or a pocket watch without the use of any tools.
This feature requires the time to be displayed on both sides of the movement and in the case of the Edouard Bovet Tourbillon, the second face presents hand-engraving that adorns each detail of its surface. It features a dial displaying the hours and minutes, synchronized with the display of local time.”
