The Braveheart Tourbillon, A Milestone For Bovet
The Braveheart Tourbillon project has existed since Pascal Raffy bought the brand in 2001. This special model, which includes a flying tourbillon with no circular balance wheel and an in-house cylindrical hairspring, was the first project he started. The Braveheart is an achievement for Raffy because it also embodies the final step of an integrative industrial process. Indeed, after acquiring the Bovetbrand , Raffy also purchased several industry suppliers in order to create a manufacture.
The Braveheart, as well as the Virtuoso II, another movement that we will soon bring you more information on, can be seen as the ultimate step of the process. Apart from that, the Braveheart also marks the beginning of various horological concepts Bovet works with. First, the design is even more precise and well-balanced than on previous pieces, and naturally there are no less than 6 patents, which include one for the convertible Amadeo system. This system is like a tribute to the history of portable watches as it allows the owner to wear the watch as a wristwach, a pocket watch, or a table watch with just a few flips of the wrist. Really well done.
