Mille Fleurs 01

Just in case you have forgotten, Valentine’s Day is on Monday and in some way or form you are expected to participate. If you really want to do it in style and put your heart not so much on your sleeve but deep inside your wallet, you could opt for a magnificent timepiece from the Bovet ‘Mille Fleurs’ collection.

Bovet first introduced the Amadeo concept in 2010, it’s a convertible case which can quickly and easily transform from a wristwatch into a miniature table clock or a pocket watch. The innovation was heralded as revolutionary and has fast become Bovet’s best seller. In its feminine guise, the timepiece can also be worn as a pendant on a Bovet sautoir necklace.

Featuring the Amadeo case, models in the ‘Mille Fleurs’ collection feature either a white or black mother-of- pearl dial with 12 diamond indexes each decorated with a miniature hand-painting. The Amadeo case allows ladies to combine the versatility of an interchangeable timepiece with the creativity of choosing the theme they wish to be hand-painted on the dial.

This year Bovet pays tribute to women by dedicating to them the ‘Mille Fleurs’ collection, which is inspired by the Valley of Flowers, Val-de-Travers; the birthplace of Bovet. With its many interpretations, the theme of ‘Mille Fleurs’ will enable you to choose your lady love’s favourite flowers, immortalised on the dial of a superb watch/table clock/pendant.
