About Bovet

For more than 200 years, Bovet 1822 has been manufacturing Swiss Handcrafted timepieces, introducing innovative designs and astounding complications that push the boundaries of traditional watchmaking.

Mission Statement

Since 1822, the House of BOVET has been focusing on the decorative arts, timepiece design, chronometry, and mechanical timekeeping ingenuity.

With its in-house capability, BOVET 1822 is committed  to manufacturing its own components, including complicated movements, dials, cases, and even spirals (something only a handful of companies can claim).

Mr. Pascal Raffy

In 2001, the House of BOVET is purchased by Pascal Raffy, a collector of BOVET and other timepieces.

Mr. Raffy is now the sole owner of BOVET 1822.

In 2006, Mr. Raffy purchased DIMIER 1738, a manufacture of tourbillons and spirals, as well as a case manufacturer.

At the same time, he purchased the Castle of Môtiers, once owned by the Bovet family, and installed the headquarters of the brand and the timepiece assembly, final quality control, as well as the engraving workshop.

Under the visionary guidance of owner Mr. Pascal Raffy, BOVET 1822 acquired renowned tourbillon and  dial  manufactures  in  2006.  DIMIER  1738,  now  renamed BOVET  1822,  immediately  began producing the Maison’s movements, hair springs, and dials in-house.

        History of Bovet

        1797 – 1839

        Establishment of the BOVET Dynasty

        1797

        Edouard Bovet was born in Fleurier. He was the son of Jean-Frédéric Bovet. He followed his father’s footsteps and became a master-watchmaker.

        1818

        Edouard Bovet left London April 20 aboard the Orwell, ship of the “Compagnie des Indes,” on a voyage to China. He arrived in Canton, on August 16, where he quickly sold four watches for the sum of CHF 10,000 representing the equivalent of one million dollars today.

        1822

        The House of BOVET, a family business, was registered on May 1st, in London. At that time, Edouard Bovet was residing in Canton, while his brothers, Alphonse and Frederic were in London, and Gustave was managing the workshops in Fleurier. Together, they established BOVET to be a leader in watchmaking for its exceptional level of decorations and chronometry. Edouard Bovet is recognized as the founder of the transparent case-back. The transparency revealed the peerless expertise of the Duplex escapement that equipped the BOVET movement until the arrival of the first Swiss lever escapements.

        1835

        The CHÂTEAU DE MÔTIERS was built in the 14th century, overlooking le Val-de-Travers and Fleurier. It was sold to Henri-François Dubois-Bovet.

        1840 – 2000

        BOVET’s Golden Age

        1840

        Frédéric Bovet left London and returned home to Fleurier, where he managed the watchmaking workshops that at the time employed 175 people.

        1849

        Edouard Bovet died in Fleurier at the age of 52, leaving his legacy in China. At that time, BOVET was a synonym of watch for the celestial (Chinese people), and used as a trade currency.

        1855

        During the Universal Exhibition held in Paris, BOVET won the gold medal in the category ‘luxury’ for a pair of enameled watches commissioned by the Emperor of China.

        1889

        Fritz Bovet, Alphonse’s eldest son, filed a patent for a flyback chronograph equipped with a seconds-hand, minute-counter, and hour-counter that featured measurements of up to 24 hours. This ingenious mechanism offered the possibility of using the chronograph as a second-time zone.

        1939

        BOVET filed a patent for the Easel watch, which allowed the use of a pocket watch as a table clock. Another patent was filed for the Mono Split-Second chronograph, which today remains highly desirable among collectors.

        1957

        Henri-François Dubois-Bovet’s great grandchildren gifted the Castle of Môtiers to the state of Neuchâtel.

        2001 – Present

        The Pinnacle of the Watchmaking Arts

        2001

        Pascal Raffy, a passionate collector of Haute Horology, became sole owner of BOVET Fleurier SA.

        2006

        Pascal Raffy bought the Castle of Môtiers, classified as a historical monument, from the State of Neuchâtel, and established the first BOVET’s assembly workshop. To continue the legacy of the Bovet brothers, he soon integrated the DIMIER 1738 Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale and BOVET Manufacture of dials.

        2007

        To celebrate their mutual respect and admiration, the House of BOVET and Pininfarina established a partnership to create luxury sport timepieces that unites their passion for design and engineering brilliance.

        2010

        The House of BOVET premiered the patented Amadéo® convertible case, which allows you to transform your timepiece in a reversible wristwatch, table clock and pocket watch (or necklace watch) without the use of any tool.

        2014

        BOVET launched the Virtuoso II Caliber, the first movement not regulated by a tourbillon to be entirely developed and handcrafted in-house.

        2015

        Pascal Raffy unveiled two historical timepieces exclusively handcrafted by the BOVET’s artisans: the incredible Braveheart®, with 6 patents and an impressive 22-day power reserve, and the 19Thirty designed in homage to the pocket watches created by the Bovet family in the 1930s.

        2018

        Pascal Raffy’s commitment and dedication to the highest level of Haute Horology is both acknowledged and honored when the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève awards the Récital 22 Grand Récital, its most coveted award, the Aiguille d’Or.

        2020

        The Bovet Family welcomed Miss Audrey Raffy and her passion for Haute Horology, as she joined forces with her father Mr. Pascal Raffy to continue leading the pathway of Engineering Brilliance.

        Mr. Pascal Raffy was honored to receive the 2020 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève award for Mechanical Exception for the magnificent Recital 26 Brainstorm Chapter Two and the Ladies’ Watch award for the beautiful Miss Audrey timepiece.


        Mr. Pascal Raffy’s long-term strategy and vision.

        Heritage, Innovation, Emotion, and Passion

        Mr. Pascal Raffy’s tremendous energy, paired with a long-term strategy and vision, has enabled him to raise the House of BOVET to the pinnacle of the watchmaking arts.

        Haute Horlogerie

        Pascal Raffy discovered the fascinating world of Haute Horlogerie during his childhood when Sundays were spent with his grandfather, a watch connoisseur who used to show him the timepieces from his collection. He would review the specific features of each, along with their history or their influence on the technical or artistic evolution of fine watchmaking.

        That was enough to ignite an ongoing passion for Haute Horlogerie and even more importantly instil the human values and awareness of authentic luxury thus passed on to Pascal Raffy. These qualities now represent the pillars upon which the House of BOVET has built its success.

        The Raffy‘s, originally hailing from the French Ardennes region and a family line originally named Raffin until the 17th century, settled briefly in Switzerland before Pascal Raffy – eager for independence at the age of 18 – set off for Paris where he studied law. It was during this period that he met his wife and acquired the first timepieces in his collection.

        A Prestigious History

        At the dawn of the 21st century, while taking a break in his career to focus on his children, Pascal Raffy was introduced to BOVET. The House needed an investor with a clear vision to restore its grandeur. 

        The prestigious history of the House dating back to 1822 along with its iconic watches, distinguished by their crown at 12 o’clock and their classic bow, immediately appealed to Pascal Raffy, who soon became the unique owner of BOVET in 2001.

        At the time, he already had a precise long-term plan of the destiny he envisioned for the House. Perpetuating the peerless expertise of the in-house artisans, achieving vertical integration and the return of movements made entirely in-house were the main springboards to success that Pascal Raffy wished to instate at BOVET 1822.

        The House of BOVET

        The year 2006 was filled with positive developments for BOVET 1822. Within a few months, Pascal Raffy successively added BOVET 1822 Manufacture de Cadrans, DIMIER 1738 Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie, as well as the Château de Môtiers to the House of BOVET.

        These acquisitions ensured the complete independence of the House and positioned it to raise its quality standards even further. Collectors, specialists, and keen observers of the watch industry have ever since saluted the technical advancements introduced by BOVET, while remaining in complete harmony with the tradition of watchmaking arts that have made the House so successful for almost two centuries.

        Family House

        In 2020, the Bovet Family welcomed Miss Audrey Raffy and her passion for Haute Horology, as she joined forces with her father Mr. Raffy to continue leading the pathway of Engineering Brilliance.

        The addition of Audrey to the House of Bovet is another reiteration of the House’s principal value: Family. Since Mr. Raffy became the owner of the House 20 years ago, his commitment has been to honor watchmaking arts and to continue to handcraft timepieces that fascinate and enthrall the most demanding collectors.

        The Amadéo® System

        Contemporary horology notably owes him the introduction of the patented Amadéo® convertible system enabling the conversion of a timepiece into a table clock, a pocket watch, a necklace, or a reversible wristwatch without the use of any tools.
