Swiss luxury watch maker BOVET 1822 has always granted mother-of-pearl a privileged place when it comes to adorning the dials of its women’s timepiece. The multiple reflections of mother-of-pearl sublimely enrich designs such as miniature paintings or scrolls in flammé or honeycomb guilloché.
For its new Château de Môtiers collection presented at the 2015 Salon, BOVET wanted to add an additional touch of symbolism with the universal Flower of Life theme. This symbol has been considered to be the fundamental model of creation for millennia thanks to its geometric design and is present in many cultures and religions. The secret of the Flower of Life was preserved for thousands of years in ancient artefacts and sculptures from around the world and is encoded in the very cells of all life forms.
According to Plato, the Flower of Life is the key to understanding the physics of the Cosmos. And the most famous scholars including Einstein, Pythagoras, Leonardo da Vinci and Newton all had the same profound intuition that simple, universal keys could systematically unlock the workings of all physical phenomena existing in the apparent chaos and disorder.
