BOVET is a Swiss Manufacturer of luxury
timepieces. Renowned for over two centuries as a pioneering master of the
decorative arts, Maison BOVET is also recognized for the reliability,
innovative character, and exemplary chronometry of its movements.
This reputation was further enhanced with the
launch of the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale in 2006. In opening
the Manufacture, Pascal Raffy brought to fruition a project that he first
devised when buying the Maison in 2001: a project that would provide him with
complete control over innovation and ensure exceptional quality.
BOVET contains an especially broad spectrum of
expertise within its Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale, where
cutting-edge technologies coexist alongside traditional know-how. The
Manufacture has established its leadership by introducing innovative new
timekeeping concepts and technological developments, boasting over 15 patents
that play a key role in the evolution of Haute Horlogerie.
In every timekeeping creation, BOVET references
the elegant persona and savoir-faire of the Maison’s earliest 19th century
works. The first example, the convertible Amadéo system, references the
classical form and function of a BOVET pocket watch, with its distinctive bow
at 12 o’clock. The ingenious Amadéo system may be converted in a few simple
steps into a reversible wristwatch and table clock, or into a pocket watch for men’s
models and a pendant watch for women’s models. The second calling card of the
House’s distinctive lineage is evidenced in the decorative arts of and
miniature painting and engraving, which are maintained by the Maison to this
day. Safeguarding the traditional arts, honoring traditional forms and
functions, while pushing horology forward with new innovations and patents,
BOVET honors its legacy while looking to the future.
