Bovet Récital 27 “Mexico” Limited Edition

The stunning novelty has received a red gold case (46.30 x 15.95 mm), the design of which resembles a professor’s chair, that is, it smoothly narrows in the direction from the 12-o’clock to the 6-o’clock position. This design was developed by the permanent owner of the Bovet company Pascal Raffy. It was first tested in 2016 in the Shooting Star wristwatch.

The main feature of the new timekeeping device is time display in three time zones. The time of the second and third time zones is shown on the counters located at the 3- and 9- o’clock positions. Each of the additional time indicators is equipped with a separate day/night indicator and a particular window with the name of the city corresponding to the time zone that is displayed on the counter at the moment.

Hour scales on the sub-counters are decorated in the guilloché technique and covered with green lacquer. It serves as a reference to one of the colors on the national flag of Mexico, symbolizing the independence of the country. The coat of arms of Mexico – an eagle sitting on a cactus, which devours the snake, symbolizes the victory of good over evil. The final touch in the image of the incredible timepiece from Bovet – geometric patterns typical of the Mayan culture manually engraved on the bezel.

Under the miniature, square-shaped dial, there is the famous caliber Jaeger-LeCoultre 101. Developed by the manufacturer in 1929, this mechanism is still the smallest mechanical caliber in the world. To make the scale of the technical feat be fully understood, let us address the numbers: 98 parts, manually manufactured and assembled at the Jaeger-LeCoultre manufactory; the size of the mechanism – 2 centimeters3, thickness – 3.4 millimeters, and weight – less than 1 gram.  

Jaeger-LeCoultre 101 Feuille represents an opulent bracelet wholly covered with diamonds of different sizes, which are fixed to the metal by hand. A total of 171 precious stones with a total weight of 10.13 carats were used in the finish of this gorgeous timekeeping device. The exquisite elegance of the model is ensured by a special caseback in the form of a leaf, which can be moved with one movement of a finger, revealing a refined silver dial with two hands to the owner of this luxury watch.
