Thanks to science, we do know that the sky is not a dome above Earth… But, looking upwards in the heart of a starry night, it can still feel that way. The Recital 20 Astérium echoes this emotion: the dome featuring the constellations, at 12 o'clock, seems to hover above the whole timepiece.
In this version of the Récital 20, the dome is made of translucent sapphire. The sky chart, almost suspended in the void, is laser-engraved. It glows in the dark, thanks to a Super-LumiNova coating. Exactly as constellations do in real life! The stars mapped are the ones visible from the Earth, in the northern hemisphere. And as a real night sky, the highest stars are depicted at the top of the dome whilst the stars nearer the horizon appear on the periphery. On the top of it all, a uniquely shaped hand indicates the four cardinal points and the hours.
According to Bovet philosophy, complication is poetry, and watchmaking is an art. The poetic feeling of the Récital 20 is combined with the utmost technical features.
