BEDAT & CO GENEVE prides itself in the new collection where beautiful art deco design and the finest Swiss
watchmaking craftsmanship intertwined. The spectacular Novelties 2015 collection is inspired by the work of art
deco artist Paul Kiss, whose work is renowned for its sweeping feminine curves and the art deco movement that
swept across Europe in the 1920s.
The concept of Art Deco has been the focal of BEDAT & CO GENEVE. Timepieces uphold a prestigious echoing of
this design philosophy and the Novelties 2015 is no exception. Timepieces at BEDAT & CO GENEVE are symbolised
by numbers according to a form of shape. BEDAT & CO GENEVE holds five collections namely 1, 2, 3, 7 and 8,
besides having a line of haute joillerie models called the Extravaganza Collection.
All designs represents the femininity of women and fits the Art deco guide line which is the brand statement design
philosophy. Among two of the timepieces of the Novelties 2015 are worth highlighting, namely the Ref. 727 and
Ref. 728. Both these timepieces are from Collection 7 that features a rectangular-shaped face and it is waisted at 3
o’clock and 9 o’clock. Collection number 7 is tied to the idea of perfection whereby the number 7 symbolises
eternal life in Ancient Egypt, standing for a complete cycle. Both the 727 and 728 functions by the mechanical
automatic movement, has approximately 42-hours power reserve and sealed by the prestigious A.O.S.C
(Appellation d’Origine Suisse Certifiée) label- A guarantee of 100% Swiss made in Switzerland.
The Ref. 727 has dial geometry that has been inspired by the curved beveled case crystal, while the embossed
outside lines contain Roman numeral and the minute track that follows the same geometry. The diamond at each
corner gives a strong BEDAT & CO GENEVE finish to the dial.
The Ref. 728 is inspired by the garden and floral arrangement. It has a dial pattern inspired by graphic pattern used
during the Art Deco period. The power of nature is the tapestry of this timepiece where the geometrical structure
is enhanced and embellished. Similar to the Ref. 727, a diamond is placed on each corner of the dial representing
the brand’s character.
Novelties 2015 also continues the legacy of BEDAT & CO GENEVE founder, Madame Simone Bedat, who sought
to channel the unique aesthetic vision and belief in comfort, emotion and function into a single entity for the wrist.
BEDAT & CO GENEVE from its very conception is dedicated to creating extraordinary designs unique to women.
