From the Duplex escapement of the pocket watches manufactured by the Bovet brothers in the 19th century to the six patents of the Braveheart Tourbillon presented in 2015, developments are always aimed at improving precision and the reliability while delivering user-friendliness and complications adapted to their time and to the collectors' needs.
BOVET’s Engineering Brilliance & its Exceptional Artistry of Human Watchmaking
The House of BOVET is a Swiss manufacturer of luxury timepieces. It has artfully combined the most sophisticated mechanisms with the finest craftsmanship, employing artisanal techniques such as gem-setting, engraving, and miniature painting.For nearly 200 years, the House of BOVET has handcrafted the finest timepieces, allowing collectors to experience what is the true pleasure of the luxury of time. To further ensure this excellence, Mr. Pascal Raffy has limited the House’s annual manufacture of handcrafted timepieces, making all components in-house, respecting Swiss artisanal processes, and adding the commitment to exclusivity and uniqueness.
BOVET has been honored to receive more than 40 awards and distinctions. Such accomplishments are related to the fact that Mr. Raffy is himself a devoted collector, dedicated to preserving BOVET’s traditions. The House also celebrates the first exhibition case back and the longest power reserve in any timepiece ever made. It’s part of the International Museum of Watches in La Chaux-de-Fonds, and features a power reserve of 370 days with only a single barrel. Since Mr. Pascal Raffy became the owner of the House, 20 years ago, his commitment has been to honor watchmaking arts to continue to handcraft timepieces that fascinate and enthrall the most demanding collectors. All of this achieved with the Engineering Brilliance of the decorative arts, innovation, and chronometry that is quintessential to this exceptional House of Haute Horology.
