If you have a thing for bald eagles you’re in luck. The new Bovet Amadeo Fleurier 43 Two Bald Eagles Grand Feu Enamel is the newest addition to Bovet’s series of unique pieces with miniature paintings.
Other recent pieces have been the ‘poppies’ painting and the ‘rider of the apocalypse’. You must be willing to walk around with a miniature painting around your wrist. But the artistry and craftsmanship cannot be denied.
This has been a staple of Bovet ever since the brand’s pocket watches of the 19th century. Nice piece of trivia: this watch has Bovet’s well known Amadeo-construction. So the piece can be easily changed into a pocket watch if so desired.
The Amadeo Fleurier 43 Two Bald Eagles Grand Feu Enamel is a collaboration with Ilgiz Fazulzyanov. He is an esteemed jeweler and enamellist.
The painting on the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier 43 Two Bald Eagles Grand Feu Enamel is from Ilgiz Fazulzyanov
Ilgiz graduated from Kazan’s Feshin Art School and continued to master the art of jewelry on his own. In 1994 Ilgiz discovered the art of stone enameling. And in a matter of several months he mastered this technique to such an extent that his new works brought to France drew the highest praise from the experts. From this moment on, the stoving enamel became his trademark and favorite technique.
The traditional decorative technique began in the 17th century and is the result of extreme heat (between 760 and 900 degrees Celsius). This heat fuses the enamel powder in the kiln, a process which produces the well-known shimmering.
The Bovet watch with ‘just’ hours and minutes is powered by Bovet’s own automatic caliber 11BA12. It comes on a black alligator leather strap. Due to the aforementioned Amadeo case construction, a gold-plated silver chain is supplied if you want to change it up and use it as a pocket watch.
