The 19Thirty collection stands out for its ease of use and Fleurier case, identifiable by its crown and bow situated at 12 o’clock in a nod to 19th-century pocket watches. The ergonomic 42mm case in red gold or stainless steel provides optimal comfort no matter the size of the wearer’s wrist. The sapphire cabochon that ornaments the crown of the timepiece highlights its exceptional elegance. For 2021, Bovet has created an enchanting, deep red dial decorated by artisanal dial-craftmen with the finest materials. The movement’s technical excellence and the artistic aspect of these sumptuous off-center dials come together to present an elegant circular “Côtes de Genève” pattern whose black embellishment contrasts with and showcases the intense red of the guilloché dials.
In addition to hours and minutes, these timepieces display the seconds at 6 o’clock in a perfect echo of 19th-century pocket watches. They have seven days of power reserve although the movement is powered by a single barrel. This timepiece’s energy efficiency is thanks to Bovet 1822’s mastery of chronometry and the brand’s long power reserves, for which it holds the all-time record: this was achieved by a pocket watch produced at the dawn of the 20th century that reached a power reserve of 370 days.
