It’s like four watches in one
You can never have too much of a good thing – unless it’s a Bovet 1822 watch, in which case you can have 10. That’s how many of the 46mm Virtuoso X Tourbillon will be made, displaying three distinct timezones on its front face, with a patented flying tourbillon, and 10 days of power reserve on a single barrel.
This is the first timepiece in the brand’s new Ateliers Bovet concept, which places a greater focus on engraving, miniature painting and technology, as well as personalisation. The globes on the front are both hand-painted, with the names of cities above them to show the timezone.
That’s the front – the reverse also has a watch face, and you can decide which of the two you prefer. This one still shows the tourbillon, but features an elaborate set of engravings around the main dial.
So you have a choice of faces, and thanks to the patented Amadeo convertible case system, a number of ways to make use of them – just a few simple steps, not requiring any tools, will change the watch into a pocket watch, and again into a table clock.
The Virtuoso X Tourbillon is available in 18k red gold, 18k white gold or platinum. An alligator strap is included, as well as a chain for using it as a pocket watch. No word on price, but expect it to be a lot.
