In a move to offer a modern aesthetic alongside its classical house style, Swiss watchmaker Bovet has revisited its Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two tourbillon using new materials and finishes.

First dropped last year, the watch used an 18kt gold case and hand-painted dials presenting a familiar and very traditional style.

But now the watch is back as an 48-piece limited edition run with a black DLC-coated titanium case and Super-LumiNova dials, giving the watch a completely different look.

Bovet Adopts Second More Modern House Style Using Materials and Super-LumiNova

The luminous dials are available in yellow, blue, salmon, turquoise, green and violet, with eight pieces being made in each color.

Mechanically, the watch is identical with its predecessor including the same patented flying tourbillon, 10-day power reserve from a single mainspring barrel, its accelerated automatic winding system and rapid date adjustment through a push-piece in the crown.

The Virtuoso VIII Chapter Two Reimagined is available now, via Bovet retailers priced $221,000 USD (CHF 200,000).

In other watch news, Chanel adds a fine marble dial to its Monsieur.
