  • Catalogue Essay

    BOVET 1822 has always focused its philanthropic efforts on children’s causes. It is only natural, therefore, that we should lend our support to the noble cause defended by Only Watch. For this year’s event, we have decided to offer a timepiece which represents a concentrate of the 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 our catalogues in 2016. This timepiece is beautifully set in our 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 of a pair of doves. It 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 I have chosen is the universal message of peace and hope, exemplified by this piece. I 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.
    Through this gesture, I humbly hope to contribute to nurturing the dreams of the children who are so nobly supported by Luc Pettavino and Only Watch.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1822

    The firm Bovet 1822 has a rich, centuries-long history beginning when Edouard Bovet sold four decorative pocket watches in Canton Asia for what would today equal $1 million. By 1822, Edouard, with his brothers, registered the company in London, which at the time was an important center for watches and clocks. That same year, they moved their manufacturing center to the Swiss municipality Fleurier. Bovet became known for their highly decorative pocket watches for the Chinese market. Their richly engraved movements were so important to the watch that Bovet created the concept of the transparent watch back so owners could see the beauty of the movement. Bovet's oversized chronograph wristwatches, such as the Mono Rattrapante chronograph, are especially sought-after. Today, the firm continues their tradition of exquisitely enameled watches.
