Born in the mind and heart of Mr. Pascal Raffy, the owner of the House of BOVET for 20 years this year, the Miss Audrey Sweet Art ONLY WATCH takes pure sugar and transforms it – all with the goal of capturing the sweetness of love and the purity of a child’s spirit. For ONLY WATCH, BOVET has used this new technique with miniature painting to produce a lovely, magical Fairy, pairing métiers d’art with a child-like innocence.
