The Middle East Watch of the Year Awards winners were announced on the 27th of November during a Grand Gala night held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Dubai International Financial Centre. The objective of this award is to recognize and reward the best brand performers in the watch industry in the Middle East. BOVET 1822 was nominated for 6 of the total 11 awards. The Récital 12 Monsieur DIMIER won the first place in its category, a new honour for BOVET 1822 for winning the award in the category Best Classical Watch Of The Year.
This precious timepiece,developed and manufactured entirely in-house by DIMIER 1738 Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale, is regulated by 7-day movement à Spécialités Horlogères. Specifically conceived and designed for the special features of different BOVET 1822 collections, this calibre has the ability to evolve and adapt to the type of indications it will be required to display. Through the use of a reverse hand-fitting, the movement reveals its gear-train, the oscillations of its balance, and a transparent coaxial choreography supporting the triple seconds-hand characteristic of the collection.
In terms of chronometry, the technical office of the Manufacture opted for a traditional escapement, which became the focus of original studies and calculations. Accustomed to the constraints imposed by the manufacture of tourbillons, they developed and produced a spring-balance assembly offering an impeccable level of performance. Careful attention was paid to the 7-day power-reserve and to the instantaneous and long-term chronometry equation, guaranteeing qualities that collectors will fully appreciate. Impregnated with two centuries of watchmaking tradition, the Récital 12, “Monsieur DIMIER” is brimming with innovations that strengthen BOVET’s unrivalled patrimony.
