Here it is yet another timepiece that celebrates Chinese New Year of Horse. This time, a special edition watch dedicated to the noble animal comes from the Swiss luxury manufacturer Bovet 1822.
Bovet’s connections with China date back in the 19th century when the Swiss watchmaker was famous for its pocket watches manufactured for the Chinese market.
The new Amadeo Fleurier 43 Year of Horse watch is housed in an 18-karat red gold case. Although the round case is elegant, the most interesting part of the watch is its mother of pearl dial that features a miniature painting of a horse. The meticulously detailed miniature painting of the horse was done by hand under microscope by a highly skilled Bovet artisan.
Like al Amadeo watches, the case of the new Amadeo Fleurier 43 allows you to turn wristwatch into a pocket watch or a table clock, without resorting to the aid of any tools.
The new special edition Bovet comes with a genuine leather strap in chocolate color which perfectly completes the overall picture of the timepiece in warm colors.
Bovet 1822 is a Swiss brand of luxury watchmakers whose origins date back to 1822.

The Swiss brand is famous for their high-quality dials, engravings, as well as for their seven-day tourbillon.
Today, under the guidance of a visionary with a passion for Haute Horologerie, Pascal Raffy, Bovet is thriving manufacturing unique wristwatches distinctive by their pocket watch inspired form. The company has a highly limited annual production.
