The standard Pulsion watches are all chronographs and contain the same RD680 automatic chronograph movements with a micro-rotor that other models such as the Monegasque Chronograph contain. These movements also bear the Seal of Geneva and are COSC certified. Unfortunately the final versions were not ready for the SIHH show so these pieces don't yet have the movements inside of them. I look forward to seeing how the final retail version looks with the RD680 inside of it. For the Pulsion Chronograph there are three models available for 2012. Two in titanium (one with black DLC coating), and one in 18k pink gold.
Bovet offers the Recital 0 in five versions. This includes a case size of 41mm wide or 45mm wide. The one I reviewed was the 45mm wide version. In addition to the two case sizes, you get a choice of a clean 18k red gold case or one that is decorated with an inner bezel ring of large baguette diamonds. That explains four versions, but I am still curious about the fifth. One thing I also don't quite understand is the variation I have seen in the dial and movement finishing. This model has a super cool dark gray-toned movement with 18k red gold hands. Other models I have seen (such as those in the above linked article on the full range of Bovet Recital watches up to that point) have a lighter finished dial with blued-steel hands and blued steel screws in the movement. Like I said, I prefer those of the piece I reviewed as they help the dial look beautiful, being able to clearly see the many movement parts individually.
You quickly learn what technologies and materials are becoming cheap enough for mass production at the Hong Kong show. For example, legions of sport watches with built-in GPS functionality were highly available. You also have more and more watches in ceramic (but that is nothing new). While you can get many of the same things the high-end Swiss watches have in cheaper form at the show, what is really interesting is what you can't get. People complain day and night about the margins Swiss brands get from watches that cost relatively little to produce. That may be so but I have yet to see suppliers copy the detailing you can find in a good European watch. The Swiss still have some serious secrets and methods for producing ultra high quality that the Chinese just haven't figured out how to replicate - at least en-masse and cheaply.
