The House of Bovet 1822 announces new models from its 19Thirty collection.
The 19thirty collection was inspired by the last pocket watches crafted by the Maison BOVET, before the advent of the wristwatch era. Its balance is inherited from the stylistic details of the “easel” chronometer which was patented in 1930 and symbolizes the shift towards wristwatches.
The 19Thirty collection was presented in 2015 exclusively in steel. The movement was specially developed for this collection, and the quality of its execution and finishes meets the same criteria of the Grandes Complications. It offers seven days of power reserve with only a single barrel.
Mr. Pascal Raffy, the owner of BOVET 1822, wanted this collection to offer two different cases. There is the iconic Fleurier case with its bows and crowns that stand out with their 12:00 position, and the more conventional Dimier case with its four horns. Both cases befit the taste and standards of collectors around the world.
The stir the collection created and the enthusiasm among collectors led Mr. Raffy to offer the 19Thirty in a red gold case that can be bespoke to the collector’s taste.
This year, the collection features the Mason’s dedication to the decorative arts by offering a luxurious “Fleurisanne” engraving that embraces the hour and minute dial, as well as the second counter which form an eight: a symbol of luck and prosperity for the wearer.
Bovet’s extraordinary Engineering Brilliance is featured in the ergonomics of the 19Thirty collection, which are presented in a case 9mm thick and 42mm across.
The beautiful elements of the dial and the case unite with impeccable timekeeping, reliability and seven-day power reserve to create a timeless, classic and exceptional timepiece that can be worn every day and turn every second into a moment of grace.
