OK, so while it might not be able to check your pulse, sort your emails, send instant messages, browse the internet, or even call home, it can be transformed into three completely different watches quickly and easily. That’s right – three. Now, ask yourself, can your Apple Watch do that? No, we didn’t think so either.
The Amadeo Fleurier Monsieur Bovet is a timepiece for all occasions. Thanks to its ingenious convertible case concept, it can change from a wristwatch to a pocket watch, and even a desktop clock without having to use a single tool or having to resort to taking the timepiece apart. If that wasn’t enough, the Amadeo Fleurier Monsieur Bovet’s Virtuoso II caliber movement has been engineered to display the hours, minutes, and seconds on both the front and back of the timepiece. The patented double coaxial seconds display mechanism within the movement allows for the seconds to be indicated on both sides of the face, whilst sharing the same axis, but with opposite directions of rotation.
That’s pretty clever and a great showcase of the Swiss maison’s mechanical expertise. One of the two faces displays the intricacy and unique architecture of the timepiece’s movement, inviting you to marvel at the technical knowhow that has gone into its construction.
The second faces epitomizes the watch’s classic appeal with a sumptuous lacquered dial that covers almost the entire surface, leaving just enough space for the seconds carriage, which offers another glimpse of the watch’s precise mechanics.
With a seven-day power reserve and perfectly balanced features, the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Monsieur is refined and elegant, and should satisfy even the most demanding of collectors.
