BOVET Sportster Saguaro Chronograph

The styling of the 46mm Sportster Saguaro red gold chronograph recalls the advanced chronograph designs produced by BOVET in the Art Deco era. The Saguaro self-winding chronograph is unusual in having the buttons at the top of the case at 11 and 1 on either side of the crown and bow. It makes the chronograph easier to use and provides a pleasing symmetry to the watch.

The movement, visible through a sapphire transparent back, bears the characteristical Sportster decoration Côtes de Genève. The Saguaro chronograph is BOVET’s classic Sportster configuration of three subdials: hours and minutes counters with running seconds. The large date, Art Deco numerals, the tachometer and pulsometer scales demonstrate that functionality need not compromise stylishness.

Water-resistant to 300 metres, certified by Chronofiable, with a rubberized and water-proof strap, the Saguaro will bring style to water-sports practising and a sport-chic feeling.
