A to­ken of love


Virtuozity - - Watch -

BOVET HAS LAUNCHED TWO time­pieces es­pe­cially for Valen­tine’s Day, for ladies there is the Amadeo Fleurier ‘Miss Au­drey’ and for men the ‘19Thirty Fleurier’, both pre­sented in stain­less steel and fea­tur­ing a blue dial.

The 19Thirty col­lec­tion has taken in­spi­ra­tion from a 1930’s Bovel easel chronome­ter, one of the last pocket watches to be man­u­fac­tured by the com­pany be­fore wrist­watches be­came wide­spread. Pow­ered by an in-house cal­iber de­vel­oped specif­i­cally for this col­lec­tion, col­lec­tors can choose from 3 di­als: blue cir­cu­lar brushed, black cir­cu­lar brushed or ivory pol­ished lac­quered. There are also three types of nu­mer­als: Ara­bic, Chi­nese or Ro­man.

Housed in the sig­na­ture Fleurier case with its dis­tinc­tive crown and bow at 12 o’clock, the watch draws its en­ergy from a sin­gle bar­rel, with this hand-wound me­chan­i­cal move­ment en­sur­ing a seven-day power re­serve.

The Miss Au­drey fea­tures a con­vert­ible sys­tem that al­lows the watch to sit on the wrist, be worn as a pen­dant or even be used as a ta­ble clock - all of which can be achieved with­out the use of any tools.

De­spite its thin­ness, it is pow­ered by a self-wind­ing me­chan­i­cal move­ment and show­cases a deep vi­brant mid­night blue dial - which was once again hand­crafted by the ar­ti­sans at the Bovet 1822 Man­u­fac­ture de Cad­rans.
