Bovet has always focused its philanthropic efforts on children’s causes. It is only natural, therefore, that the brand lend its support to the noble cause defended by Only Watch. For this year’s event, the Maison has decided to offer a unique Lady Bovet, a timepiece which represents a concentration of expertise that we have sought to perpetuate since 1822. This unique timepiece is based on a previously unreleased model that will appear for the first time in Bovet's collections in 2016.
This unique piece is animated by the Virtuoso II watchmaking specialty caliber developed by the Manufacturer Dimier 1738 to offer the noblest expression of time by meeting the specificities and criteria of excellence which characterize the Maison since 1822. The exemplary chronometry of this movement is glorified by irreproachable finishings and seven days of power reserve for absolute comfort.
This timepiece is beautifully set in the convertible Amadeo® case, allowing the timepiece to be easily transformed from a reversible wristwatch to a table clock to a pendant necklace without the need for a single tool. By virtue of its reversibility, this piece boasts two very distinctive faces. One of the faces features pink-hued mother-of-pearl guilloché dials, whilst the other offers a miniature painting of a pair of doves. This painting is a reproduction of the grand feu enamel case back of a Bovet pocket watch that was manufactured at the turn of the 19th century.
The theme chosen by Pascal Raffy, Owner of Bovet & Dimier 1738, is the universal message of peace and hope, exemplified by this piece. Pascal Raffy also wanted to offer a timepiece that would pay tribute to women—who give life and protect children, who represent hope and the future of humanity, without distinction.
