BOVET VIRTUOSO VIII CHAPTER II
Bovet Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two is the latest creation from the esteemed Swiss brand. Its list of functions includes hours, minutes, seconds, a large date and a power reserve indicator displayed on the flying tourbillon. Other highlights include a "writing slope" case and two aventurine glass dials
Bovet produces high-end watches at Château de Môtiers in the Val de Travers region. The brand's timepieces are unique, featuring high-quality materials and incredible craftsmanship. In addition to the contemporary Sportster and Bovet by Pininfarina models, the Swiss brand has a great reputation for creating classic watches.
The company has more sites in Plan-les-Ouates and Tremelan. Together, the three sites manufacture a large number of components, including dials and movements. In addition, Bovet employs talented artisans who decorate the watches with miniature paintings and engravings.replica Bremont Watches
An ingenious invention of the brand is the Amadeo Convertible Case System, which allows the wearer to convert the watch into a pocket watch, pendant watch or desk clock. More recently, the brand has been offering watches housed in "writing ramp" cases. In this case, the design of the case provides a sublime perspective for the various indications and allows the brand to creatively position the dial elements at different depths.
The brand's latest Bovet Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two comes in a 44mm beveled writing case. This model is powered by the Calibre 17BM06-GD hand-wound movement with a flying tourbillon, a large date and a power reserve indicator. The latter two indications are displayed on two separate dials, each made of aventurine glass.
BOVET is pleased to present the second chapter of the iconic Virtuoso VIII tourbillon - the ultimate expression of hand-watchmaking, Art Deco, mechanical ingenuity and innovation.replica swiss watches
The Virtuoso VIII elegantly combines two of Bovet's iconic cases, the Fleurier and the Dimier, as it is the first timepiece in the Fleurier collection to feature an inclined crystal aperture on the 12-6 o'clock axis. This truly innovative concept offers a new perspective on the construction, decoration and functional presentation of movements. Both decks feature bridges whose shape immediately reminds us of Bovet's historic pocket watches. The stainless steel is chamfered and polished, the discs are sunken and chamfered, and the tourbillon cage bridges are made of titanium to reduce the weight of the cage and prevent any magnetic charges.
In this second chapter, the elegant decoration completes the technical prowess of the timepiece. The two elegant arms above the flying tourbillon are rounded and polished, and the bridges on both sides are decorated with a circular "Côtes de Genève" pattern. The heart of the timepiece invites collectors to drift to the face of the movement and admire its beating heart, the powerful rotation of the tourbillon and all the functions handcrafted in the Bovet workshop.luxury replica watch
A limited edition of 50 timepieces, the dial of the second chapter has been completely redesigned to give the timepiece a new look. The dial is made of blue aventurine glass, forming the horizontal number 8, symbolizing luck, perfection and infinity in numerology and many cultures. The symmetry of the timepiece also highlights the functionality and legibility of its displayed complications, power reserve indicator and large date.
For excellent legibility, the display of the seconds hand has been carefully designed to display the hour markers screwed to the cage wheel. The arrows of the hands are suspended from the surface of the delicate circular dial, showing the 60 seconds. The simple, precise readability provided by this display is remarkable. For this, the seconds dial had to be fastened to the plate during the initial assembly phase, which made the work of the watchmaker more delicate when working with aventurine glass. The talent, passion and experience of the artisans are expressed in such intensity and harmony that the splendor of Virtuoso VIII Chapter 2 is truly fascinating.Replica Greubel Forsey Watch
It is difficult to imagine a dial with such a large diameter, suspended from a large date plate, that can achieve such a large display. The space between the unit and hour dials has been reduced to optimize readability and can be used regardless of the dial chosen. The watchmaker also didn't forget the date correction, and didn't even need to take the watch off the wrist, just press the crown. The rapid date corrector and the iconic positioning crown at 12 o'clock, combined with the positioning of the Fleurier bow case, effectively avoid any accidental date correction.
The movement that drives this exceptional timepiece meets Bovet's demanding standards for timekeeping, reliability and expressiveness. It draws energy from a single barrel, ensuring a power reserve of more than ten days, while keeping the balance wheel vibrating at 18,000 vibrations per hour.
The new structure of the patented double-sided flying tourbillon reveals its timekeeping assets as it regulates this timepiece. Its attachment point is located in the center of its axis and is distributed on both sides of the escapement and hairspring, greatly reducing the lever arm effect and friction at the pivot point.replica RICHARD MILLE RM 11-03 McLAREN
To further enhance the performance of this tourbillon, the brand’s artisans opted for a variable inertia balance. Six collets are inserted into the rim of the balance wheel, creating a perfectly precise and dynamic balance and setting. A hairspring with curved ends is designed for this movement and balance. It is fixed to the tourbillon bridge by means of double-ended moving stud supports. The hand-finishing of the movement, the traditional polishing of the pivots and the hobbing using traditional manual methods also contribute to further enhancing the timekeeping performance of the Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two movement.
Finally, if not for the spherical differential winding system, a single barrel provides a power reserve of more than ten days, requiring meticulous winding. The application of this ingenious mechanism and its multi-gear three-dimensional teeth on a pinion has been awarded two patents. Thanks to this differential winding system, the number of crown turns required to fully wind is halved without increasing the friction and force exerted on the gears.
Virtuoso VIII Chapter 2 expresses the quintessential values of BOVET, as it simultaneously brings together the dedication, passion, respect for tradition and attention to detail of the artisans – the hallmarks of refinement and unparalleled fine watchmaking.fashion replica watch
