Posted on 21 February 2007 by John Biggs

bovet-fleurier-no-2932.jpgBovet is all but unknown here but it’s quite popular in China. This is a fascinating piece, their version of a sports watch, which is pretty hot no matter what language you speak.

Made in 2001. Self-winding, water-resistant, asymmetric, diamond-set stainless steel gentleman’s wristwatch with Chinese Dial, square button chronograph at 11 and 1 o’clock, registers, date and a stainless steel Bovet deployant clasp. Three-body case, polished and brushed, screwed-down transparent case back, rounded polished band, brushed inclined bezel, asymmetric “Vendôme” type lugs with screwed bars at 6, extended mobile geometrical-shaped pendant and winding-crown at 12, square chronograph buttons at 11 and 1. Dial: Mother-of-pearl with blue enameled Chinese characters for the hours, subsidiary sunk dials for the seconds, 12-hour and 30-minute register dials with unusual numeration, double aperture for the date at 12 with Arabic numerals. Blued steel skeletonized “bâton” hands.
