DISCOVER THE STORY
Two Houses Rooted in Design.
A shared vision. Both at the pinnacle of their respective industries, BOVET 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina share an expertise for design and craftsmanship at the highest level of luxury.
After a successful collaboration between BOVET and Pininfarina S.p.A., the next chapter between the two legendary names is being written with this new partnership. The new collaboration was officially launched at an exclusive event during Monterey Car Week in California and is evolved with the presentation of the new Battista timepiece.
The BOVET and Pininfarina names both represent a rich history in design excellence and craftsmanship. For decades, both brands have been striving to create the ultimate expression of their craft, offering clients only the best of the best available in the world. Generations of artisans have shaped the most incredible pieces of art. This mutual expertise was apparent from the very beginning, when BOVET owner Mr. Pascal Raffy and the Automobili Pininfarina Design Team met for the first time in Cambiano, Italy.
A Future Vision on Luxury.
The first timepiece in this partnership celebrates the creation of the first automobile designed and completely assembled in Cambiano – Battista – and the role of the pure-electric hyper GT in the ongoing luxury revolution. With Battista, Automobili Pininfarina is at the forefront of this new movement towards sustainable, responsible luxury and takes another step in the collaboration with BOVET.
This shared vision and expertise becomes apparent in every aspect of the collaboration between BOVET and Automobili Pininfarina. The unique skills of both houses led to the creation of a one-of-a-kind timepiece that simply could not have been realized without the shared development process between the craftsmen at BOVET and the design team at Automobili Pininfarina. A hand made masterpiece of horology constructed by the world’s most skilled precision artisans. The complete in-house development and crafting offers the freedom to create highly bespoke parts and decorations with utmost precision, while assuring that the highest quality standards can be met.
The creation of a client’s Battista is a process of virtually unlimited personalization, ensuring the only limits are the dreams of the client. Because of the expertise between BOVET and Automobili Pininfarina, this can be taken a step further, giving our clients the possibility to express his or her own personality and that of their bespoke Battista through the Battista timepiece as well.
Purity in Design.
The Battista timepiece is an expression of shared design values between BOVET and Automobili Pininfarina. With a focus on lightness and purity, it extends Battista’s design philosophy and brings it to another dimension. Detailing inspired by Battista’s most characteristic design features can be found in every part of the timepiece, including the movement’s mechanical parts. Sapphire crystals on both sides ensure that the inner beauty of this mechanical masterpiece can be enjoyed and admired.
Both BOVET and Automobili Pininfarina are incredibly proud of the first timepiece that was crafted to start this collaboration, one that celebrates both houses’ design excellence, pioneering craftsmanship and vision for sustainable luxury.
The Battista timepiece truly represents the pinnacle of haute horlogerie. From the exquisite details of each and every component to the utmost complexity of the movement, it is a showcase of watchmaking at its finest. Each element, whether functional or decorative, is designed to represent the shared values of Automobili Pininfarina and BOVET.
The new Battista from BOVET 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina is the result of a collaboration that celebrates the past of both houses and has its sights firmly set on the next century. Welcome to the future of luxury.
