Our complex lifestyles sometimes finds us asking, “What day is it?,” at which time a simple answer would be greatly appreciated. Those who enjoy classic literature and music often seek a timepiece that also inspires a sense of delight. To answer this call, the Swiss firm of Bovet offers the Récital 21 Retrograde Perpetual Calendar. A sturdy 44mm case of either pink gold or titanium houses a blue hour and minute dial surrounded by a running seconds display. A 60-minute countdown is set at 9 o’clock; the day of the month at 3 o’clock; the month at 6 o’clock; and the day of the week at 12 o’clock. A mechanical movement with a 5-day power reserve can be viewed through the sapphire display caseback. While the housing is water-resistant to 30 meters, this is not the timepiece to wear for a dip in the local hot springs; Bovet.com.
As the world begins to open back up and we incorporate lessons learned into our daily routines, one thing’s certain: A few trends of our “new normal” are here to stay — and society will evolve significantly for the better because of it.
