Bovet 1882 (Bovet 1822) is a Swiss luxury watch brand, distinguished by special attention to the decor of its creations, often becoming small works of art. The watches of this company are easily recognizable by their signature aesthetics, and the demand for its works remains even years after the model's release. The special elegance makes the brand's accessories especially suitable for social receptions and other festive events, however, the discreet luxury of Swiss watches will be appropriate in everyday life.
The origins of the company go back to 1822, when, after a severe economic crisis and the Napoleonic wars, watchmaking in the Swiss region of Fleurier began to recover. The pillar of the revival was the Chinese market, which became available in these years, where the watchmakers of the region directed their main efforts. The Bovet brothers founded the Bovet Company to manufacture sophisticated watch movements with complications that were especially prized among the wealthy Chinese. The company quickly established a dominance in the watchmaking market in southern China. The brand's influence on the Chinese watch market at that time was so great that the Cantonese pronunciation of its name "bo-wai" became a household word for watches in general. Unfortunately, the developed Chinese market did not last long, but now Bovet enamel pocket watches, which were made for Eastern buyers, are considered very valuable antiques and are sold at auctions for impressive money.
The fall of the watch market in the 1901th century hit the Bovet company significantly and forced it to be sold in 1950. By 1994, the brand had disappeared from the global market. We owe the revival of the legendary company in our time to Roger Guey and Thierry Olevay, who bought the Bovet brand in XNUMX and started production again. And the modern look and name of the company, as well as the release of collectible watches, are the merit of the current head of the company, Pascal Raffy.
Bovet watches began to focus on the aesthetics of the case and movement back in the XNUMXth century in order to attract the attention of the wealthy Chinese public, and the techniques developed since that time for creating incredibly elegant movements make the watches of this company extremely attractive today. Many people want to buy Bovet watches as part of the collection, because the design of these accessories puts them on a par with the objects of traditional art. Including the attractiveness in the past, this watch was added by the outstanding subtlety of the mechanism, its open parts, the Bovet watch was one of the first in the world to acquire a second hand. The company also has several important patents for the entire watch industry, including those on important components of the chronograph movement.
Contemporary models are inspired by XNUMXth century style combined with modern ideas and interpretation. One of the highlights is the Amadeo convertible case, which makes it easy to convert the same watch into a pocket, wrist or table watch. Also, a distinctive feature is often the two-sidedness of watches equipped with dials on the front and back sides of the case - this refers to the original tradition of selling watches in pairs, so that in the event of a breakdown one has a spare one, since repair could take many months. Some works of the brand can be purchased exclusively in Switzerland personally from the master-maker.
All together creates around the brand a respectful aura of mystery, luxury and quality, which invariably attracts more and more fans of elegant watch movements.
