This is one piece of chronograph history dated back to 1930s, produced by one of the most prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer, BOVET.

Bovet started watch manufacturing since 1822. It gained highest reputation then, been the one who produced pocket watches for  by Qing Dynasty emperors, royalty and court officials.

It is extremely rare for Bovet to have produced chronograph wrist watches over its long history. This piece circa 1930s could be the only one of not just a few still exist. Because, in those days, Bovet only produced about 12 pieces for each model they designed for special customers.

This piece shown here was bought in Europe by a collector. For now, the writer owns it.

Modern Bovet watches, still well-sought after
