On the Virtuoso VIII, many features make an impact. The big date is one of them. Seemingly a technical detail, it is very useful and one of the most appreciated functions in a watch. Making it perfectly legible implies actually advanced technique. The challenge : to display digits as large as possible although the mechanism has to occupy the smallest possible volume.
The space between the units disk and tens disk has been reduced to the bare minimum. The two digits even appear in the same window – without a separation that would hide a larger space between them. This is even a bigger feat as the space available for the disks is reduced by the open tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
And what about setting the date ? No details have been left aside by Bovet's watchmakers, and the correction is easily made. The date can be quickly modified by simply pressing the crown. There is even no need to take the watch off the wrist in order to correct it. And as perfection lies in details, the Bovet's signature bow over the crown avoids any unwanted correction.
