Monsieur Bovet won Best Classical Watch Prize
Dubai, 15th November 2017. The Middle East Watch of the Year Awards honoured the epitome of elegance combined with the finest Swiss watchmaking expertise by awarding the Monsieur Bovet timepiece.
The convertible case of Monsieur Bovet
Monsieur Bovet is presented in an Amadeo convertible case, proposed in 18K white or red gold. The ingenious Amadeo system enables the timepiece to be transformed from a wristwatch to a pocket watch, a reversed timepiece or a table clock without the use of a single tool.
The two faces of Monsieur Bovet
On one side, the off-centred dial at 12 o’clock displays the hour and minute hands while the seconds’ carriage at 6 o’clock completes the vertical axis with a triple hand. The centre wheel and its bridge, visible at 4 o’clock, mirror the balance spring and balance cock. Finally, the power reserve indicator is nestled at 10 o’clock.
The other side epitomizes pure, timeless classicism. A sumptuous lacquered dial covers the entire surface, leaving just enough space for the seconds’ carriage, which offers a glimpse of its Virtuoso II calibre.
This in-house calibre stands out for its dual display of hours and minutes, together with the patented double co-axial seconds mechanism, which indicates the seconds on both sides of the movement whilst sharing the same axis but with opposite directions of rotation. The Virtuoso II offers a seven-day power reserve.
Awarded with the Best Classical Watch Prize, the Monsieur Bovet confirms its unique identity.
