For the Récital 20 Astérium® Tourbillon, Bovet master watchmakers and artisans mapped out the stars and constellations visible from Earth on a dome of translucent blue quartz, laser-engraved and coated in Super-LumiNova® to create a dazzling true-to-life sky. The watch offers retrograde minutes, seconds hand on the tourbillon, equation of time, precise moonphase indicator, solstice and equinox indicator, astrological zodiac and power reserve indicator. The night sky and sidereal indications are governed by an annual calendar mechanism that is on a 365.25-day cycle to reflect the true duration of a full terrestrial orbit. The watch holds two patents, including a double-face tourbillon. The reverse side of the 46mm case features the annual calendar. Just 60 pieces will be made.
