At its annual Salon in January 2010, BOVET unveiled its fabulous collection named AMADEO. This crowning achievement will undoubtedly mark a major turning point in the history of BOVET. Presaging this new chapter in the development of BOVET collections, it was in Monaco, on 24 September 2009, that the first AMADEO timepiece was presented by ONLY WATCH at the auction on behalf of children suffering from muscular dystrophy.
Following an initial successful collaboration in 2005, BOVET stepped forward for the second time to support this worthy cause, donating one of the most emblematic of watches, namely the Jumping Hours, complete with miniature painting on its mother of-pearl dial. After several bids, this exceptional timepiece was acquired by an American collector for the very gratifying sum of €90,000.
