On June 3rd, 2016, several hundred collectors from all Europe had arranged to meet together in Luxembourg, in the thermal city of Mondorf where the key event of the Watch Fair 2016 was held: the award ceremony and the gala dinner.
It is a jury compound of the most eminent experts and particularly representative of the watch-making diversity which chose the candidates then made a selection before electing the award winners. This year, laureates of nine categories and three special prizes were rewarded. Nominated in four out of nine categories, BOVET was clearly the most present during the event.
It is in the ultimate category, watches with complications, that the House of BOVET was awarded the prize for its already very noteworthy Recital 18 Shooting Star®.
The jury picked up on the extreme complexity of the movement and its numerous complications. Its innovative and avant-garde character harmoniously integrated to traditional watchmaking also seduced the members of the jury. Finally, that all the components which constitute this timepiece were developed and manufactured in the workshops of BOVET’s manufactures was the culmination of the success of the tourbillon Recital 18 Shooting Star® in this category.
