Richard Mille and Bovet have joined renowned Swiss manufacturers that have recently introduced new luxury watches to replenish their popular collections.                                                                                 

Richard Mille RM 33-02 Automatique

Richard Mille, known for its intricate and quite expensive products, from time to time, “extracts” a long-known model from its extensive collections to give it new touches or enhance existing accents.

It is precisely what happened to the ultra-thin RM 33 wristwatch presented in 2011. Four years later, in 2015, a small second indicator and a date window were added to the RM 33-01 version, and now, Richard Mille masters returned to the laconic original image with two hands.

Very significant changes have occurred over these eight years, including the reduction of the diameter from 45.7 to 41.7 millimeters and the use of the combination of the brand’s favorite materials – gold and carbon. The middle of the case is made of 18-carat rose gold, while the bezel and the caseback received the Carbon TPT composite with a characteristic and recognizable pattern.

The brand has equipped the new luxury watch with a skeletonized titanium dial with a thickness of 0.75 millimeters, closer to the outer edge of which twelve applied Arabic numerals are fixed.

The dial is adjacent to the unchanging companion of the RM 33 series, the ultra-thin automatic caliber RMXP1, whose titanium platinum uses a Titalyt finish, while skeletonized titanium bridges are accompanied by a black PVD coating.

The movement is a representative of the 5400 series of the Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier factory. With a 3Hz balance, it has a power reserve of 45 hours and has an extremely thin profile of 2.6 millimeters (with a diameter of 33 millimeters), including a platinum self-winding micro-rotor.

The black rubber strap will be a companion to the 140 numbered copies of the stylish timepiece that make up the limited edition.

Bovet Virtuoso X Tourbillon

Bovet has introduced a new double-sided watch from the Bovet Virtuoso collection, equipped with a flying tourbillon and time indication of three time zones. The local time is displayed through two central hands on the dial on the front side, as well as on the small dial on the caseback. The red hands on the two sub-dials located on the horizontal axis – 3-9 o’clock – show the second and third time zones.

Each of the sub-dials is equipped with a 24-hour scale and is hand-painted with a miniature representing the globe. In the dark, these small “globes” glow thanks to the phosphor. Above the sub-counters, there are windows that display the name of the city corresponding to the selected time zone. In this case, the owner of the luxury watch from Bovet decides which cities will show the time in each of the 24 time zones. Importantly, the display of the second and third time zones is based on the seasonal transition to winter and summer time.

The background for the indications on the front side is the guilloché motif “Fleurisanne,” glorified by the Bovet brothers in the early XIX century. The small dial on the caseback is fixed to the “bare” metal decorated with ornate engraving. The Bovet Virtuoso X Tourbillon opulent timekeeping device is equipped with a single winding drum, which provides it with a 10-day power reserve. You need to wind this watch manually. The release of the model is limited to 10 copies only.

The model is available in cases of red or white gold, as well as in the case of platinum. The reliability of the model is confirmed in an independent laboratory, where this majestic timepiece has withstood 30,000 cycles of full conversions.
