Five-day power reserve with a single barrel


The Récital 29 is easy and comfortable to wear. It’s the very first timepiece presented in a stainless steel 42 mm “writing slope” case. This trademarked case has been awarded numerous times for its readability and innovative design. It features the art and brilliance of the House of Bovet’s artisans.

Its hours and minutes are presented in Arabic numbers. It debuts another of Bovet’s exquisite domed-shaped dials that are decorated with hand-engraved guilloché. Its hand-wound caliber, built entirely in-House, was uniquely designed for the iconic “writing slope” case. The craftsmanship finishes combined with the precision of execution, that Bovet is applauded for, limits the friction of the components and powers this single barrel movement with an impressive 5-day power reserve.⠀
