Heritage, Innovation, Emotion and Passion
Pascal Raffy’s tremendous energy, paired with a long-term strategy and vision, has enabled him to raise the House of BOVET to the pinnacle of the watchmaking arts.
P ascal Raffy discovered the fascinating world of Haute Horlogerie during his childhood when Sundays were spent with his grandfather, a watch connoisseur who used to show him the timepieces from his collection. He would review the specific features of each, along with their history or their influence on the technical or artistic evolution of fine watchmaking.
A t the dawn of the 21st century, while taking a break in his career to focus on his children, Pascal Raffy was introduced to BOVET. The House needed an investor with a clear vision to restore its grandeur.
T he year 2006 was filled with positive developments for BOVET 1822. Within a few months, Pascal Raffy successively added BOVET 1822 Manufacture de Cadrans, DIMIER 1738 Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie, as well as the Château de Môtiers to the House of BOVET.
In 2020, the Bovet Family welcomed Miss Audrey Raffy and her passion for Haute Horology, as she joined forces with her father Mr. Raffy to continue leading the pathway of Engineering Brilliance.
Contemporary horology notably owes him the introduction of the patented Amadéo® convertible system enabling the conversion of a timepiece into a table clock, a pocket watch, a necklace, or a reversible wristwatch without the use of any tools.
