Thoughts on Bovet? Owners and Opinions

Considering a piece, what do owners and others think about the brand and overall quality vs. competing producers?

Quality isn’t a matter for concern, but which model are you contemplating, and what’s it up against?

I've been curious how they wear, I know many models are 42mm...

No competition. Appreciate your question. Considering the Sportster Chronograph since I don't know much about the brand. Your thoughts?

The Saguaro Bullhead is not one I’ve spent much time on – I believe it uses the Val Joux (ETA) 7753, so the pushers are going to feel like that on every other 7750… almost too firm.

If you’re wedded to the function of a chronograph, then I would steer you away from it (and every other brands’ models using the same wobbly rotor movement), and into the much more refined feel of the (Grand Seiko Spring Drive Chronographs.
I prefer the SBGB001/003 variant, which is lesser known about, which has the less obtrusive buttons, and loses the GMT element of the more commonly mentioned SBGC range.
The older Seiko and Ananta SD models are superb looking, and can be had at a lower cost, if needs must.
Should a bullhead shape be an absolute requirement, then (if you’re ever lucky enough to find one) you’d want the long since discontinued Seiko Izul.

For me, Bovet starts tp come into their own with likes of the Recital 12, 15, and the 19Thirty pieces.
