In 2020, the House of BOVET is showcasing green dials across its collections. The iconic Miss Audrey and Monsieur Bovet are two of the many designs adorned in this color.
In many cultures, green is a symbol of hope, luck, growth, and nature. Today, this link also symbolizes environmental protection. What cleaner energy is there than the one that powers a mechanical watch movement ? Or what eco-friendlier approach than storing this energy in a barrel that can provide this function for centuries ?
Since its launch in 2015, Monsieur Bovet has become the symbol of timepieces featuring the iconic patented Amadéo® convertible case. Its elegance, understated design, and two faces make it a fitting timepiece for every moment in the life of the modern man. This precious timepiece is powered by an in-house movement that offers seven days of power reserve with a single barrel. This extraordinary power reserve demonstrates how BOVET’s artisans and
watchmakers have perfectly mastered the art of energy. It is the fruit of the meticulous handcrafted finishes on each of the movement’s components. It follows the traditional methods that the Bovet brothers used back at the dawn of the 19th century, and that optimally limited the friction of the components in a movement, allowing user comfort and chronometry thus meeting the highest criteria applied in fine watchmaking.
The guilloché motif on Monsieur Bovet’s two dials is an extension of the Maison BOVET’s symbol since 1822: a lotus flower with twelve petals that symbolizes the twelve hours counted on the dials. It is decorated with fine appliqué of Arabic numerals.
The House of BOVET continues to enhance its women’s collection in 2020. As demonstrated by the new edition of the Miss Audrey timepiece. It now features a green guilloché dial inspired by the lotus flower that reflects sumptuous shades. This timepiece is also housed in the Amadéo® convertible case, crafted in steel with a 36-mm diameter. The bezel and the iconic bow are set with white diamonds that beautifully enhance the dial.
The case’s convertible feature allows the timepiece to be worn on the wrist, transformed into a table clock or turned into a majestic pendant without needing to use any tools. To match the dial in perfect harmony, Mr. Raffy, BOVET 1822’s owner, has designed an original long jade bead necklace that highlights the refinement of the timepiece. Powered by an automatic movement displaying the date at 6 o’clock, Miss Audrey is a timepiece that offers the comfort of use that is rare for such a gem.
BOVET 1822’s craftsmen have once again skillfully combined their talents to create these two timepieces. The dial-makers add the finishing touch that attracts every eye. Several months of development and fine-tuning were required to accomplish the end result. The process that they follow to achieve excellence is extremely demanding. Each dial is guillochéd and then lacquered on a metal plate with a diameter that is greater than the finished dial. It is only once that the different layers of lacquer are applied that they carry out the drilling and machining operations. Given this sequence, these procedures are extremely delicate, and yet guarantee the legendary excellence of the dials and timepieces that Maison BOVET 1822, dedicated to engeenering brilliance, has been manufacturing for almost two centuries.
