The exquisite piece unique features a hand painted monkey, beautifully rendered by the artisans of BOVET in enamel on a mother of pearl dial. This painstaking process required months of work devoted to the dial alone, making this a truly singular timepiece destined for a discerning collector.
The piece unique Amadeo® Fleurier Monsieur BOVET is equipped with the manufacturer’s own Virtuoso II caliber, which employs reversed hand-fitting and double co-axial seconds. The resplendent hand-chiseled white gold case also reverses to display the intricate movement that drives the heart of this Monsieur BOVET piece unique and thanks to the patented Amadeo® convertible system, the piece unique Monsieur BOVET can be enjoyed as a table clock, pocket watch, or reversible wrist timepiece without the need for any tools.
In recent years, BOVET has issued a piece unique in celebration of the Chinese New Year, in homage to the House’s longstanding history with China and in appreciation of the nation’s rich culture. Now the Year of the Monkey Monsieur BOVET piece unique stands as an unforgettable timepiece that will commemorate the dawn of a new year in a fitting medium – an artful, one of a kind BOVET timepiece.
