Bovet celebrates bicentenary with launch of tourbillon


To commemorate the bicentenary of the Edouard Bovet’s arrival in China, Bovet has developed a timepiece dedicated to travel, the Edouard Bovet Tourbillon.

Edouard Bovet arrived in China in 1818 and after four years, when he realised the potential of the Chinese watchmaking market, he founded Maison Bovet 1822 with his brothers.

The new Edouard Bovet Tourbillon, released to mark two hundreds years since this milestone, presents a triple time zone with hemispherical maps of the earth and features a power reserve of ten hours.

Fitted hands are used to display the time on both sides of the movement while the manufacture caliber is housed in the Amadéo convertible case.

Patented in 2010, the Amadéo system transforms a timepiece into a reversible wristwatch, table clock, or pocket watch without the need for tools.
