Pantone’s 2018 color of the year, Ultra Violet, is a vivid and ethereal color that inspires a sense of regal mystery. This intriguing hue finds artful expression in BOVET’s luminous Château de Môtiers 40 timepiece, featuring a grand floral motif on its hand-painted dial.
For almost two centuries, the miniature paintings adorning the cases and dials of BOVET’s timepieces have fascinated and charmed enthusiasts of art and fine watchmaking. In 2018, the prestigious Swiss watchmaking Maison is launching this new luminous ladies’ timepiece to celebrate its 195th anniversary. The Château de Môtiers 40 “Flower Bouquet” features a vivid bouquet of Ultra Violet and other enchanting hues, framed by a diamond set bezel and diamond set bow, and further accented by an Ultra Violet toned alligator strap.
The new ladies’ timepiece brings a new dimension to the decorative arts by combining the traditional technique of miniature painting with the layered application of luminescent material. The work painted by the artisan on the surface of the dial becomes visible both by day and by night.
