from a Press Release
The gift of the Lady BOVET Flower of Life timepiece befits a woman who cherishes the artistry, craft, and technical prowess of traditional watchmaking and can appreciate the signs of true luxury. By special request, the BOVET’s artisans can employ their talents to create a unique piece featuring exquisite hand-engraving, gem-setting, or miniature painting that is significant to the gift recipient - making the Lady BOVET Flower of Life a meaningful and outstanding Mother’s Day gift.
A gift that presents three options in one, the Flower of Life may be enjoyed as a traditional wristwatch, as an elegant table clock, or as a fascinating pendant. The bold 39 mm case presents two beguiling faces, which can be viewed with a simple conversion via the Amadeo system. The first face invites the beholder to admire a feminine expression of the specific architecture and technical nature of the Virtuoso II, whose various bridges present voluptuous shapes with concentric curves in a harmonious balance of symmetry and grace.
The power-reserve indicator appears located at 10 o’clock. A quick and easy maneuver enables the timepiece to be worn on the reverse, revealing an entirely different face. A classic dial displaying the hours and minutes graces the second side of this timepiece, featuring either a hand-gilded flower of life engraved on mother-of-pearl or the same motif in grand feu enamel. The flower of life is a universal symbol of balance and vitality found in many civilizations.
The Flower of Life Collection Represents #Bovet's Charitable Work...
The Flower of Life motif perfectly represents the charity work that has united BOVET and the Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) association since 2012. APJ brings together notable figures from the film, music and art industries to support education to children and adults in Haiti. In addition to BOVET’s annual contribution to the cause, 10% of the value of every Lady BOVET Fleur de Vie timepiece sold will be donated to the association and to the children of Haiti, making the gift of Lady BOVET a meaningful expression of love to mark the occasion of Mother’s Day.
