Récital 17 wins at the Middle East Watch of the Year Awards

Bovet 1822 is proud to announce the Récital 17 won the best Multi-Time Zone Timepiece of the Year Award in Middle East.

The Récital 17, masterpiece of the Dimier Collection, won best Multi-Time Zone Timepiece of the Year Award in the Middle East.

Distinctive and innovative, the Récital 17 can meet the requirements of each and every collector, whatever their profession, as the communication methods and mobility that characterize the 21st century call for constant interaction with the entire world.

The RéciTal 17 is powered by the BOVET Virtuoso II watchmaking specialties caliber, presenting new facets in the form of three time zones and a high-precision moon phase that indicates the current phase of the lunar cycle in both hemispheres. The Récital 17 presents three time zones. Logically, the local time occupies the central position, which allows the time to be read intuitively. The two other time zones appear at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock. Each displays a time zone chosen from the 24 existing zones. The indication of the hours and minutes is completed by a day/night disk and a 24-city indicator corresponding to the 24 time zones. The Récital 17’s extraordinary openwork dial adds to the timepiece’s strong personality and demonstrates the brilliance of its dial-makers.


This triple time zone is judiciously complemented by a double moon phase which simultaneously indicates the current phase of the lunar cycle in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The two opposing apertures are linked by a sumptuous compass rose directly machined into the base of the dial. The specific angle created by the position of the two apertures corresponds to the Earth’s axial tilt with respect to the equator, which itself determines the boundary between the contrasting lunar cycles of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. This is a high-precision lunar mechanism, requiring a correction of just one day every 128 years.
