The 19Thirty collection is inspired by one of the last pocket watches manufactured by Bovet before the era of the wristwatch. It has inherited the harmony and numerous stylistic details of the ‘Easel’ chronometer patented in 1930, which in itself symbolizes the transition to the wristwatch.
Presented in the spring of 2015, exclusively in steel, the collection was an instant success, without doubt owing principally to the movement developed specifically for 19Thirty. Its execution and finishes are of exceptional quality, following criteria identical to those used for grandes complications, and it features a seven-day power reserve drawn from a single barrel. The collector can choose from three colors of dial and three types of numerals (Arabic, Chinese and Roman) which provide a plethora of combinations.
The impact of the collection has inspired Bovet 1822 to manufacture the 19Thirty in a red gold case. Again, it is available in three different dial colors (black, blue and brown) but this time the dials are decorated with a noble sunray guillochage. The timepiece once more offers a choice of three types of numeral. To complete this abundance of possibilities, each collector can opt for a diamond set bezel and bow if desired.
