Following the release of the three astronomical tourbillon watches, the Shooting Star in 2016, the Astérium in 2017 and the Grand Récital 22 in 2018, Bovet would finally present the Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter One in 2019. Not only does it continues the rejuvenation of tourbillon watches for the brand, it inherits in the inclined "writing desk" case just like the former trilogy. The spectacular architecture of the wristwatch is fully exhibited under the sapphire crystal case, showcasing the three dimensional moon phases, big date, power reserve of ten days and of course, a flying tourbillon at 6 o'clock. Highlighting its incredible movement would be the centrepiece of the dial, manufactured from blue quartz. Showcasing the beauty of transparency, the vision of Bovet's current owner Pascal Raffy is brilliantly delivered through this masterpiece.
