FrontRunners: Open Calendar

<< Back to Robb Report, Car of the Year 2014

The company’s signature mixture of technical and aesthetic watchmaking is on display in the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Virtuoso III (www.bovet.com). The open-worked watch combines a tourbillon with a retrograde perpetual calendar, and as with recent Bovet tourbillons, the cage is suspended and connected to the movement with the slightest of supports. The perpetual-calendar displays are placed around the periphery of the hours-and-minutes dial, enabling the plating and bridges to emulate the swoops and swirls of the fleurisanne engraving that decorates the surfaces. The $350,000 Virtuoso III converts to a pocket watch or a desk clock, and because it has hands on both sides, it can be worn with either side facing out.
