The house of BOVET has been a leading name in watchmaking for 195 years thanks to its mastery of the decorative arts. The miniature paintings adorning the pocket watches manufactured by the BOVET brothers are omnipresent in watchmaking and art museums worldwide.
Yet traditional craftsmanship does not preclude innovation, as nobly illustrated by the technicality applied to the creation of this timepiece dial. The Geisha hand-painted on the dial of this timepiece combines different layers of traditional painting and Super-LumiNova®, rendering this miniature work of art, affixed to mother-of-pearl, visible both by day and by night.
For Only Watch, the artisans at BOVET 1822 have gone even further, as the Geisha bares all when night falls. This unprecedented innovation in watchmaking makes the link between the traditional enamelwork that established the House’s reputation in the 19th century and the erotic watches of the same period.
