Bovet 1822 Battista Tourbillon

Together with Bovet 1822, Automobili Pininfarina presents the new Battista Tourbillon, matching the electric hypercar. The first production vehicle from the traditional design house is being created in a new manufacturing facility in Cambiano. For fans and customers of this powerful electric car, there is now an equally innovative wristwatch. “Since the day we first connected with Pascal Raffy and the artisans of BOVET 1822, we felt mutually inspired by the opportunity to create another art form for clients desiring the pinnacle in design and watchmaking.With the unveiling of our first timepiece, we aim to showcase another step forward in the world of artisanal horology,” said Per Svantesson, CEO of Automobili Pininfarina. The handcrafted Bovet 1822 masterpiece is created by highly skilled artisans in the Swiss village of Tramelan in “Titanium”, “Platinum”, “Rose Gold” and “Bespoke” colors with vegan straps.

Pascal Raffy, owner of the Bovet 1822 brand, tells us: “The world is becoming more sustainable and the future is in electric cars. This is what is so exciting about the beautiful Battista, which combines engineering excellence with hand-made attention to detail, like the fine timepieces of the House of BOVET. Automobili Pininfarina is inspiring us to use new methods and materials, and look at our processes with an eye to sustainability as well.” For the Battista Tourbillon, the emphasis was on lightness and simplicity. Both sides of the case wear sapphire crystal. For the hands, dials and bridges, they took inspiration from the Automobili Pininfarina Battista. At the top sits Bovet’s patented double face tourbillon, which runs at 18,000 vibrations per hour. The power reserve is up to ten days. Bovet 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina didn’t yet provide details on the price of the limited edition wristwatch in the four versions.
