The timepiece manufactured specifically for the occasion is unique in more ways than one. BOVET’s two centuries of supremacy in terms of watchmaking decorative arts are evident here in an interpretation that combines the expertise from an age-old tradition with innovation in the service of art.
Made from Grand Feu enamel or applied to a mother-of-pearl or lacquered base, BOVET 1822’s miniature paintings have been enchanting collectors since the early 19th century. Consequently a miniature painting was chosen to personalize this timepiece.
Numerous variations on the chosen theme – a Geisha – have adorned the backs or dials of BOVET timepieces since 1822. The version presented on this timepiece is, naturally, an expression that is entirely new. But it is above all the technique used to create it that lends the piece its prestige and uniqueness.
The work painted by the artist on the dial’s surface therefore becomes visible both by day and by night.
By presenting this timepiece suffused with tradition and innovation, BOVET 1822 brings a new dimension to applied arts, creating an unprecedented connection between the centuries-old tradition of miniature painting and that of erotic watches and reaffirming its position as the ultimate pioneer and reference in terms of watchmaking decorative arts.
