Bovet has produced a new tourbillon based on design partner Pininfarina’s new electric hypercar, the Battista.

The Bovet Battista Tourbillon has been created in collaboration with Automobili Pininfarina alongside the development of the car, which is the first to have been designed and assembled by the design house in its 91-year history.

Bovet are making 90 of the flying tourbillon watches, with 30 pieces are being made in polished titanium, 30 in 18ct red gold and 30 in platinum, translating the car’s exterior curves into the hands, bridges and dials, while the ‘Triangolo’ pattern found on the car is carried over to the watch’s two-tone blue dial.

These shared aesthetic touches are showcased through the domed box sapphire crystals found on both the front and rear of the watch, which are shaped at the 12 and six o’clock positions to integrate the watch’s vegan rubber strap.

“Since the day we first connected with [Bovet 1822 owner] 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,” says Per Svantesson, Chief Executive Officer, Automobili Pininfarina. “With the unveiling of our first timepiece, we aim to showcase another step forward in the world of artisanal horology.” 

The 45.6mm watch displays grand date, indication of its 10-day power reserve and a 60-second flying tourbillon, all of which is framed by a floating hour ring. Its entirely new manually wound 2.5Hz movement manages a power reserve using just one mainspring barrel, with Bovet receiving a patent for its quick-winding.

The Bovet Battista Tourbillon is available now via Bovet’s retailers, priced $320,000 USD.
