“Guy´s Eclectic Choice of The Week”: Bovet – Tourbillon Virtuoso
Photographer Guy Lucas de Peslouan shares his images and thoughts on Bovet´s Tourbillon Virtuoso
A few thoughts by Guy:
This watch offers a new vision of time. With a skeletonized Tourbillon and using the two faces to read time, this watch is unusual and stunning. The minute indicator is retrograde and jumping hours comes in a « Guichet », plus a power reserve indicator.
On the other side, you will find a classic two hands, for hours and minutes.
Finishing and décoration are so fine and original and improve, (reveal), the manufacture « savoir faire ».
In just a few simple movements, this ingenious « Amadeo » system enables the user to successively convert his or her timepiece into a reversible wristwatch, a table clock, or a pocket watch – without any tools.
Additional context by the eclecticum:
What I see on the pictures looks interesting and very well executed. I like the « Amadeo » concept and the idea behind. It may not be for everyone, but who cares if it fits to your idea of fine watchmaking and your personal context. For once I can´t say more about the watch or the people behind. Simply because I never met them and not even held one of their watches in hand.
It doesn´t happen that often, but still it does. That´s just one more good reason to look forward what Guy decided to share with us. Learning about something new, even after so many years being passionate about watches.
