Château De Môtiers 40 Butterfly

Bovet 1822



Working on a mother-of-pearl dial, the master artisans at Bovet combine miniature painting with a special technique that includes Super-LumiNova to achieve a brilliantly hued butterfly on the face of this Château de Môtiers 40 Butterfly watch. Each wing is meticulously hand-painted with a technique that mirrors reality. Each watch is, therefore, unique. The 40mm rose gold case features round-cut diamonds adorning the bow and bezel. Part of the Fleurier collection, the watch is powered by an automatic mechanical movement. Thanks to the luminous material used in the painting, the dial glows day and night.

Noted for its 19th century pocket watches, Bovet has unfailingly impressed since its start. The Swiss brand has continually captivated watch enthusiasts both through the transparent intricacy of its designs and an elegance that one wouldn't expect to characterize complex machinery. In 2022, Bovet launched curated exhibition of its timepieces to celebrate the its bicentennial. Spanning the entire 200 years, it included pieces from the 1800s, such as those made for the Ottoman Empire and European royalty. Moving across to the early 1900s, the exhibition featured the watch that inspired the patented Amedo system before showcasing the prominent Bovet chronographs of the 1940s and 1950s. And closing the exhibit, ground-breaking astronomical timepieces took the spotlight, in addition to the GHP award-winning timepieces and bespoke Rolls-Royce timepieces designed for its Boat Tail project.
