  • Catalogue Essay

    Bovet has always held a special place in the history of horology as one of the first companies to start exporting Swiss-made pocket watches to the Chinese market in the nineteenth century. The present watch retains the same majesty of vintage Bovet pocket watches. With just a few steps, the ingenious Amadeo system incorporated in the watch allows the wearer to convert their wristwatch into a pocket watch. The 18K pink gold case is embellished with a breathtakingly beautiful blue guilloché dial, further emphasizing its grandeur.

    The present watch is not only aesthetically impressive, but it also incorporates many important complications. Magnificently, it features dual time as well as retrograde date hand. More importantly, the watch contains the perpetual calendar complication, which corrects automatically for months with less than 31 days as well as leap years. Complimented with a Bovet fitted presentation box, the present watch is a great asset for any watch enthusiasts.

  • 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.
