Bovet 1822 presents a new version of its Virtuoso VII, equipped with a retrograde perpetual calendar, inverted hand-fitting, a double coaxial seconds hand and a convertible case.

The perpetual calendar is one of the most highly prized watchmaking complications among collectors. It shows the full date that accounts for the specific length of each month, whether 28, 29, 30, or 31 days. Created by Mr. Pascal Raffy, the owner of Bovet 1822, the Virtuoso VII timepiece shows the date, day of the week, month, and leap year cycle. Other indications include power reserve, hours, minutes, and seconds displayed on both dials of the timepiece.

The 2020 Virtuoso VII collection is being expanded with a new model available as a limited edition in red or white gold with a sumptuous green guilloché dial. Once again, the dial makers have displayed great virtuosity in creating not only the two dials but also the various display elements in a reduced size. Despite the reduced thickness of both the hours and minutes dials, they still boast the delicate, unique guilloché pattern designed by Mr. Raffy. The pattern’s prismatic effect reveals its fineness as it showcases the lotus flower, with 12 petals, that has been the symbol of the House of BOVET since 1822.

The Virtuoso VII belongs to the Fleurier collection and comes with the iconic patented Amadéo® case that allows the collector to wear the timepiece with a reversible bracelet, as a pocket watch, or as an elegant desk clock.
