Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter 2
The second round of complications and sloping Bovet exclusive watches sapphire cases.
The density of watch technology packaging into this watch is enough to keep your breath away. In the stars of the brainstorm released in 2019, the second chapter promoted a series of complications: double-sided flight gyro; the world timer indexed to the second time zone; and the moon phase and the power reserve indicator. Arranged on the dome structure, the complications are displayed in the sloping sapphire case, making it first debut with Bovet's astronomical. The second chapter of the brainstorm is a feat of rape engineering because it is a beautiful handmade facing. We can have a period of time with the watch before its official introduction. This is what we found.
Slope sapphire case Between 2016 and 2018, the meat bending his watch muscles and launched a three-month manner. They are not only a complex masterpiece of astronomy, but these watches are in a quite unusual case that is inspired by the tilt angle from antique writing desk. In 2019, Bovet's master Pascah Lafite decided to borrow an astronomical watch that was sloped with the shape of the desktop, if it was made in sapphire, what happened. Christened ThermiCital26 Brainstorming Chapter 1, the watch provides a complete transparent, more contemporary gyro and the moon complex. The inclinement provided by the structure of the housing is thicker, and the other end is tapered - the three-dimensional indicator of the concentric roller, the rotating dome and the interior provides perfect habitat.
Earlier this year, the watch realized the same spectacular layout in another color scheme. Although the top chapter of the slope of the brainstorm is similar, if possible, the action on the deck is more spectacular! It is undeniable that two complications hosted by the sapphire case in the Sapphire Birdsorv chapter are double-faced flying wheels and moon stages in Sapphire Birdsorv chapters.
Brainstorm Chapter 2 In this extraordinary watch, the transparent socket is a double-sided flight gyro, a precision moon phase indicator, the second time zone, the power reserve indicator and a bucket of sufficient power to keep it aid five days. stretch. In the wide manufacturing of Raffy in Fleurier, the head is manufactured, the brainstorming development, the second chapter and retains his technical and prototype watch for four years.
The sapphire case is not fresh in the table. However, the intrinsic hardness of sapphire makes it difficult to process and polish. After all, sapphire is the second fastest material after diamond. Other properties of sapphire are crystalline transparency, and its weight is lighter than titanium. In this case, there is a case where there is a strong 47.80 mm diameter and a thickness of 15.50 mm at the highest point, which is made of sapphire, and 5-stage titanium ring with capsules and titanium holes. So, it is huge, but it is very light.
Navigation function From the basics, you will find hours and minutes on the dome blue quartz dish within 12 o'clock. If you are in travel mode, this disc corresponds to local time. The second is pointed out on 60 seconds of the 60 seconds of 6 o'clock. Under the fixed disc, the rotary dome of the local time is shown: a rotary dome of 3 o'clock is displayed, and the second time zone is displayed directly, it is opposite to 9 o'clock, and is another dome indicator in the lunar stage.
More deeper, you can see how translucent dome disc reveals the following work and decorative features and how gold hands bend to track the contours of hemisphere. By the way, the local time dome can be ordered with green quartz or even blue, although the last option may not provide such a good view.
World timer index to the second time zone The rotation of 3 o'clock is on the top of 24 cities represent 24 time districts. They are printed on the surface and the dimensions reach the top of the dome. The city is located on the rotating section of the dome, and the full revolution is achieved by scanning the 24 hours of scanning the base ring. The city selected by the gold V-shaped needle frame, the time is forwarded on the 24-hour fixed ring below. For example, in our photos, Miami has been selected and time is 17:00. Once the city is selected, the world timer completes its adjustment and is simultaneously displayed in all other 23 cities. Take the same example of Miami, you can see Miami 17:00, London 22:00, Geneva 23:00.
Precision moon The third dome in the triol corresponds to the moon phase indicator, which rotates synchronously with the moon cycle. As a precision moon phase indicator, it only needs a one-day correction every 122 years. It doesn't just indicate the age of the moon in a hemisphere, but both are. To consult the current stage of the moon, there is a golden structure with two round widows engraved with SUD and NORD words. The circular window is sliding on two blue satellites, highlighting the visible moon portion. The moon surface engraved with hand-engraved, then processed to the luminescent material, brought love for cute rays in the dark.
Due to the patented radial guiding system, the rotation of the GMT and Moon phase indicators is committed to rotation. These mini ruby rollers are sitting on the circumference of each dome. It can be adjusted by micron screws to ensure that the globe is always in the middle, and rotates without friction. In turn, this increases the accuracy of the movement and does not exhaust the power reserve.
Double-sided flight gyro and power reserve indicator
Double-sided flying gyro is fixed by a five-arm star structure made from the face of sapphire and two blue screws. The sixth arm of the lack of stars is a small blue pointer to represent the position of the number of seconds.
The power reserve indicator is not on the dial or on the table. It is located in the top of the box embedded between the two lugs. In fact, a linear indicator having a yellow pointer is integrated into a cylindrical support structure of the main time dome. The cylindrical structure below has a plaque with engraving -5 jours + under the bottom and bottom time. The next layer is left out of the linear power supply display aperture.
As a meat, the decoration is considered to be a mechanics of the watch. In this model, most of the decoration depends on manually engraving "broken glass" patterns, you can appreciate it on the basis of three dome. Even the column is also compared with other steel components with satin finishes by manual polishing.
From the reverse view very beautiful. The two golden hollow bridges of the center seem to be squandering on the silver structure supporting the dome. Unlike most motions, this is fixed at the bottom rather than in the middle of the case to optimize transparency. Once again, the cute shredded glass hand-engraving pattern found on the dial is used here. Even the binochonal bin-feeder of a strong 5-day power reserve is also fed its function, and the golden propeller pattern of the brush silver bottom is also decorated. The patented double-sided gyro is elegantly suspended in hollow in 6 o'clock and holds two fixed bridges, fixed with turquoise color screws.
The manual winding movement is defeated at a frequency of 21,600 VPH, and sufficient energy can be stored to keep the moon, minutes, seconds, stages, the second region, and the power reserve indicator to run for five days.
