The Swiss watch company Bovet, celebrating its 195th anniversary this year, is known all over the world for its highly artistic dials. For almost two centuries, their mother-of-pearl surface has been adorned with exquisite picturesque miniatures depicting natural landscapes, flora and fauna, portraits of famous people.

A new decorative technique has been developed for the Château de Môtiers watch with a round 40 mm case and a branded crown at the 12 o'clock position. The drawing, made in the traditional Bovet technique, is sequentially applied in several layers with luminescent material, so the image on the dial becomes readable not only in daylight, but also in the dark.

The difficulty in creating such a miniature is that the “day” and “night” images are made with the same precision and detail, so the artist has to work on two motives at the same time, constantly moving between the lit and dark rooms. Bovet 's first experimental design was a gorgeous blue-green butterfly. The automatic watch in red gold case is released in a limited edition of eight pieces.>
