Bovet masters beauty and technique inside and out (2/2)

When Pascal Raffy embarked on his adventure at the head of Bovet, he had it in mind to develop a full-fledged Fine Watch brand. An important step was accomplished in 2006 with the takeover of the movement manufacturer STT, renamed Dimier 1738.

Ciao, ciao, bambino...

When I think of Gabriel Tortella, our friend who took leave of us too soon, I remember the lyrics of a song by Domenico Modugno that we used to sing when he would invite me to his dinners with friends: “Cos’è che trema sul tuo visino ? / È pioggia o pianto, dimmi cos’è?” (Tell me, what is trembling on your cheek? / Is it the rain or tears?)

Without a song and dance

It's only now come to my attention that my musings under the title In the Air are published with a rather inflated signature: not just "Franco Cologni" as I had asked, but also "President of the FHH Cultural Council."

A country rich in natural resources with an educated - and peaceful - population, over the past ten years Colombia has emerged from violence and progressed. The Colombians now welcome luxury as a reward, and are happy to take it onto streets that are at last safe.

Bovet cultivates its marks of distinction (1/2)

A supremely distinctive brand, Bovet continues its way with remarkable coherency. From its wristwatches with bow attachment to the Amadeo concept, and of course the decorative arts, Bovet imposes its hallmarks with a superlative degree of quality. Fine Watches of singular beauty form the prelude to a new chapter of integrated movement manufacturing. (Part 1)
