As every year, the European watch magazine awards the prizes which recompense, in their respective categories, the best timepiece of the year.
This year the jury consisted of five renowned specialists of Haute Horlogerie. Three timepieces were pre-selected in the category “Ladies watches from £ 10’000 and up”. The Tourbillon BOVET Récital 9 “Miss Alexandra” won over each of the members of the jury with its technical coherence, its useful functions and the poetry of their interpretation. This exceptional timepiece was specially manufactured and brought to life by the artisans of DIMIER 1738 Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale in order to accompany with elegance the most demanding women in terms of high watchmaking.
Some of these notable details include its harmonious oval shape and proportions, the ingenuity of its precision moon phase mechanism, its ingenious pusher integrated in the crown, the poetry of the hour and minute hands coming together in the shape of a heart and an impressive seven days of power reserve.
Rewarded three times after four consecutive selections at the 0024 European Watch of the Year, these precisions allowed the “Miss Alexandra”, the most feminine of BOVET 1822’s grand complications, to surpass its competitors rewarding the excellence that embodies this and every timepiece the House of BOVET crafts by hand and splendidly won the prize Watch of The Year 2014.
In Geneva on November 12th, Mr. Harry Wijnschenk, international editorial supervisor of the magazine 0024, granted to Mr. Pascal Raffy, owner of the House of BOVET, this new and prestigious reward.
