About the brand


The Founder

Even among the many Swiss watchmakers who were extant in the Chinese market in the 19th century, Bovet stands out as a historic actor. Its founder, Édouard Bovet, began the business in London: according to multiple historians, because of the city’s established maritime shipping routes into East Asia.


Himself the son of watchmakers, Bovet grew the family business (aided by his brothers, Frederic and Alphonse) for nearly 50 years - until the political and economic turmoil of the Opium Wars convinced him to sell their interests to local partners in Fleurier in 1864. 


Established in London in 1822, Bovet is an idiosyncratic heritage watchmaker with close ties to East Asia since the 19th century. Its founder, Edouard Bovet, spent a large amount of time in the brand’s nascent years supplying watches to the Chinese market - so much so that the phonetic Mandarin pronunciation for Bovet (“bo wei”) became a synonym for mechanical watches.


Since 2001, the brand has been owned by collector Pascal Raffy, who has upheld the Bovet family’s legacy in fine pocket watches and complications, all while transitioning the manufacture into the 21st century.
