The new Virtuoso VIII Chapter Second includes all the other things that make this introduction special-a patented flying tourbillon with a power reserve of ten days, a patented accelerated rewind system, a writing beveled case and a sapphire crystal window, and a beautiful machine. With core decoration and big date display, the two dials form a horizontal number 8. In numerology and many cultures, it symbolizes luck, perfection and infinity.
In order to obtain excellent legibility, the second hand display has been carefully designed and displayed by the Super-LumiNova coated sub-dial. The pointer arrow hangs on the surface of the exquisite round dial, displaying 60 seconds. Even in the dark, the simple and precise readability provided by this display is excellent. For this reason, the seconds dial must be fixed to the dial during the initial assembly stage, which makes the watchmaker’s work more delicate when using Super-LumiNova coating, because scratches will need to be restarted.
It is hard to imagine that a Super-LumiNova dial with such a diameter hanging on the date dial can achieve such a large date display. The space between the unit disc and the hour disc is reduced to optimize readability and make it as large as possible to enhance legibility. The watchmaker has not forgotten the date correction, it does not even need to remove the timepiece from the wrist, just press the real cabochon sapphire crown. The fast date corrector and the iconic 12 o’clock position crown effectively avoid any accidental date correction. Bovet swiss
The movement that drives this outstanding timepiece meets Bovet’s demanding standards for timekeeping, reliability and expressiveness. It draws energy from a single barrel, ensuring a power reserve of more than ten days, while maintaining the swing speed of the balance at 18,000 vph.
Finally, if there is no spherical differential winding system, the power reserve of more than ten days provided by a single barrel will require careful winding. The application of this ingenious mechanism and the multi-gear three-dimensional toothing of one of the pinions have been granted two patents. Due to this differential winding system, the number of crown turns required to fully wind the mainspring is halved without increasing the friction and force exerted on the gears. discount swiss watches
The Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two Limited Edition (8 in each color) is a modern interpretation of Bovet’s proprietary and patented flying tourbillon, with a large date and long power reserve. The Super-LumiNova coated dial and black DLC titanium case are BOVET’s true starting point for the 21st century and a clear sign of the future.
