The Miss Audrey Sweet Fairy ONLY WATCH by BOVET 1822 is a unique timepiece that uses a completely new material and a new process to produce a dial that has never been seen before in watchmaking.
Symbolizing sweetness and purity, the dial of the Miss Audrey Sweet Fairy ONLY WATCH incorporates pure sugar crystals. Representing a breakthrough in engineering innovation, materials, and miniature painting, this highly artistic dial captures the sweetness of love and the purity of a child’s spirit.
For ONLY WATCH, BOVET has used this new technique with miniature painting to produce a lovely, magical Fairy, pairing métiers d’art with a child-like innocence.
The process of producing this dial is extraordinarily complex. First, in the center of the dial is a hand-painted fairy, filled with Super-LumiNova. After the miniature-painting process, the dial is covered with a protective lacquer, securing the art for eternity.
Then, the pure sugar crystals are prepared so their structure will not change when exposed to light or heat. The sweet crystals are chosen for size, then combined with a special environmentally-friendly orange paint – matching the theme color of this year’s ONLY WATCH, and carefully hand-applied to the outside of the dial, which has already been coated with orange Super-LumiNova.
The result is an intriguing mix of texture and sparkle, unlike any other dial ever produced in the long history of watchmaking. The special hands on the dial of the Sweet Fairy ONLY WATCH are a lovely, romantic touch. Uniquely shaped, they form a beautiful heart once every hour, as the minute hand catches up to the hour hand, reminding the wearer of all the loved ones in her life.
The signature 36mm Fleurier Amadéo® convertible case is in stainless steel hand-set with sparkling white diamonds. The unique and patented Amadéo® case can be transformed into a wristwatch, table clock, or pendant all without the use of any tools.
Powering the Miss Audrey Sweet Fairy ONLY WATCH is an automatic movement beating at 4Hz for exemplary chronometry.
Only Watch is a biannual charity auction of unique timepieces, with 99% of the proceeds going directly to fund research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder primarily affecting young boys. BOVET 1822 has been involved in ONLY WATCH since its very beginning, donating a unique timepiece made specifically for the auction.
Created especially for the 9th edition of this prestigious charity event, the Miss Audrey Sweet Fairy ONLY WATCH will be auctioned on 6 November 2021, at the Four Seasons Hôtel des Bergues in Geneva.
