After introducing the 19Thirty watch with a deep red guilloché dial, the House of BOVET is introducing additional materials and colors in this beautiful 42mm manual-wind timepiece.
The guilloché pattern is applied to the dial in the Manufacture, and then filled with layer upon layer of translucent colored lacquer. Once the lacquer has dried, it is polished so that the pattern of the guilloché can be revealed and catch the light as the timepiece moves.
These guilloché dials are special, because they have a color-changing quality when the light hits them. Take the turquoise, the first color being launched, for example: from one angle, it looks like a dark blue, but from another angle, it brightens and is stunning turquoise.
Each color is strictly limited to 60 pieces, no matter the indices (Roman numerals, Arabic numbers, Chinese characters, and more).
This striking turquoise guilloché color and dial treatment was personally conceived and designed by Mr. Pascal Raffy, owner of the House of BOVET.
The red guilloché 19Thirty was launched in February, and now more colors are being added to the mix – an intriguing turquoise, a rich blue, and a deep green.
The 19Thirty is the youngest family in the BOVET 1822 collection, and it has been an immediate success. Combining an elegant and very wearable design with a manufacture movement with seven days of power reserve, from one barrel, has really turned heads in the watchmaking industry.
Introduced in 2015 and inspired by a vintage pocket watch from the 1930s, the 19Thirty Collection is powered by a completely brand-new movement from the House of BOVET. The 19Thirty Collection is available in a variety of executions (in both Fleurier and Dimier cases), including lacquer dials, enhanced with engraving, diamond-set, and in a variety of colors.
The 19Thirty Collection stands out for its ease of use and Fleurier case, a true symbol of two centuries of watchmaking excellence. These new guilloché-dial timepieces are immediately identifiable by their crowns and bows situated at 12 o’clock.
The ergonomic 42mm case in stainless steel provides optimal comfort no matter the size of the wearer’s wrist, thanks to its slim profile (9.05mm). The 19Thirty Collection was designed with everyday use in mind. The real sapphire cabochon that is inset into the crown further highlights its elegance.
The movement’s technical excellence and the artistic aspect of the off-center dials come together to showcase an elegant silver or blackened “Côtes de Genève” treatment, or with superlative Fleurisanne hand-engraving, whose embellishment contrasts with and enhances the intense colors of the guilloché dials.
In addition to clear and easily readable hours and minutes, these timepieces display the seconds at 6 o’clock in a perfect echo of 19th-century pocket watches. At the 3 o’clock position is the power reserve indicator, highlighting the incredible seven days of power reserve.
BOVET is able to achieve extraordinary power reserves by using traditional artisanal methods and uncompromising finishes on each and every component. The manufacturing and decoration quality standards for the components are the same as Bovet’s most complicated timepieces.
The sapphire glass of the screw-down back lets collectors appreciate every detail of this finely finished manual-wind movement.
