Virtuoso VIII

Bovet 1822 2017

Men's

Virtuoso VIII square

 

 

This is the first time Bovet presents a watch in the

Fleurier Grandes Complications collection that is not in the famous Amadeo

convertible case. And for good reason: Virtuoso VIII presents an unprecedented

view of its movement architecture thanks to an inclined case in red gold: an

admirable choice for this new Tourbillon watch, which comes with three patents

and numerous technical innovations. As well as the double-sided flying

tourbillon, the Virtuoso VIII guarantees ten days of power reserve from a

single barrel, and offers a wonderfully legible large date display. Made for

collectors, this is no less a timepiece designed for ease of use, with a

spherical differential linked to the barrel that halves winding time. Practical

and reliable, the Virtuoso VIII is also a lesson in horological decoration.

Both sides of the plate are chased with a beautifully ornate design that makes

a contrast with the emblematic Fleurisanne engraving on the bridges.
