The Bovet By Pininfarina Collection: Two names, two legends: the Bovet By Pininfarina collection combines the best in design and technique for these unashamedly contemporary mechanical creations. Distinctive watches for those who know a sports style can be elegant, too.1 8
The rubber straps hint at these pieces’ natural inclinations: sports, machismo, and unadulterated technique. Sportster chronographs feature pushers moved to twelve o’clock to facilitate handling, as well as an enlarged diameter to ensure readability. An uncompromising collection for those who enjoy trailblazing mechanics.2 8
This collection embodies the transition from pocket watch to wristwatch. Bovet gave a first-hand account of this, in particular with its “easel” chronometer – one of the last pocket watches to be made by the firm. The 19Thirty collection is available with two different cases.3 8
Dedicated to decorative métier d’art crafts, the Fleurier collection has the simplest of hours and minutes displays, so the dials can take pride of place. Micro-painting, grand feu enamel, and guilloche detailing all feature on the manufacture’s iconic case, which allows the timepiece to be turned into a wristwatch, pocket watch, pendant, or table watch, with no tool required.4 8
Monsieur Bovet and Virtuoso: two models whose names set collectors’ hearts a-flutter due to their technical and aesthetic excellence: a five to seven-day power reserve, retrograde minutes, double seconds hands, hand engravings and finishing – and, as always, Bovet’s exclusive option of using the watch on the wrist, in the pocket, as a pendant, or even as a table clock.5 8
Grandes Complications, the superlative Fleurier collection, comprises the manufacture’s Fine Watchmaking limited editions, embodying the quintessence of its knowhow. With 22-day flying tourbillons, triple time zones, inverted hands, jumping hours, and retrograde minutes, Bovet is one of the finest exponents of the art of watchmaking – and is taking it towards new horizons.6 8
With delicate curves, soft contours, languorous shapes, and jewelled cases, Bovet’s ladies’ collections use all the manufacture’s knowhow to express poetry and delicacy. Hours and minutes may be accompanied by a moon phase or other choice complication, such as a date or a tourbillon – here showing off its graceful mechanical ballet to its full advantage.7 8
These “Recitals” are classic in name only. The collection of limited editions in intricate cases gives pride of place to daring and creativity. Asymmetry and offset hours rule supreme; the openwork dials and interplay of shapes and depth are sure to win over discerning, experienced watch-lovers.8 8

Bovet watches represent genuine works of art that delight connoisseurs with a penchant for finely decorated models. The brand excels in creating exquisite miniature paintings on the watches’ dials – the highest level of refinement. Bovet movements, which are developed and crafted in the brand’s own workshops, are also distinguished by the care lavished on the decoration of their various components. Founded in 1822 by Edouard and Alphonse Bovet in the Val-de-Travers, the brand spearheaded the expansion of Swiss watchmaking in China, where it enjoyed impressive success right from the outset. In 2010, Bovet launched its Amadeo concept, a revolutionary system enabling wearers to transform their timepiece at will into a wristwatch, a miniature table clock or a pocket watch.
