BOVET 1822 Luminescent Miniature Painting


To complement its 195th anniversary, BOVET is demonstrating just how much potential for innovation still remains, in complete respect of the tradition and rules of their art.

The work painted by the artist on the dial’s surface therefore becomes visible both by day and by night.

The technique presents the artisan with a multitude of expressive possibilities, such as designing a motif that appears different after dark from that which is visible by day.

The skill lies in applying the luminescent material to achieve the same level of detail by night as by day, almost as if the artist is creating two paintings simultaneously. The artisan is also faced with a new constraint, in that he must repeatedly move from a lit room to a dark one in order to gauge each step of his meticulous work.

By presenting an entire collection based on this major innovation, BOVET 1822 is once again confirming its reputation as the ultimate pioneer and reference in the applied arts.
