ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BOVET seeks to preserve and cultivate the art and craft of traditional watchmaking

BOVET 1822 is a Swiss Manufacturer of luxury timepieces whose origins date back to 1822, the year in which Edouard Bovet founded their workshop in the picturesque Val-de-Travers region of Switzerland.

BOVET is renowned for its pocket watches manufactured for the Chinese market in the 19th century. Today, under the guidance and ownership of Pascal Raffy, a visionary with a passion for Haute Horlogerie, BOVET is thriving, manufacturing unique timepieces distinguished by their pocket watch inspired form. From extraordinary complications such as tourbillons and minute repeaters, to rare artisanal crafts such as enamel painting and fleurisanne engraving, each BOVET timepiece is brought to life under the practiced hand of a BOVET master watchmaker.

When Pascal Raffy, owner of BOVET 1822 and DIMIER 1738, sets out to develop a new timepiece, he strives to combine the talent of every artisan working on its design and on the manufacture of each component. This vital interaction gives rise to a host of synergies, with each craftsman’s hand enhancing the work of his artisans.

The VIRTbovet 2UOSO VII Retrograde Perpetual Calendar is no exception, and symbolizes the coherence and culmination of the unparalleled expertise that has driven the company’s workshops for almost two centuries.

With a highly limited production annually, BOVET seeks to preserve and cultivate the art and craft of traditional watchmaking, while delighting connoisseurs and collectors.
