Métiers d'Art Watches by Bovet: The Golden Age is Now

08.07.2019

Four stunning pieces from the Decorative Arts Collection clearly show the brand’s prowess in making one-of-a-kind dials.

While it’s really hard to chose the favorite, we’ll start with the dial featuring the enamel koi carp by Russian artist and jeweler Ilgiz Fazulzyanov. To achieve such a level of detail, the painter uses a brush ending in a single marten hair, and produces the work entirely under a microscope. Needless to say, there’re dozens of working hours involved, and the tiniest mistake means the process goes back to the start. All this beauty is housed in a diamond-set 39-mm white gold Amadeo case, easily transforming from the wristwatch to table clock, or a pendant.

Cased in a slightly larger 43-mm Amadeo cases are the pieces depicting a golden dragon against the blue dial, a brightly colored dragon against a dark mother-of-pearl dial, and trademark Bovet white tiger. Each hair of the tiger’s thick fur has been individually painted by the artisan, who uses a microscope to precisely guide their brush's single marten hair. The in-house automatic movements powering all the aforementioned watches are basically the same featuring a 72-hour power reserve and the highest level of finishing.
