Automobili Pininfarina
Bovet 1822


Two Houses Rooted in Design.

Both at the pinnacle of their respective industries, Bovet 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina share expertise for design and craftsmanship at the highest level of luxury.

After a successful collaboration between Bovet 1822 and Pininfarina S.p.A., the next chapter between the two legendary names is written with this new partnership. The new collaboration was officially launched at an exclusive event at Monterey Car Week 2021 in California and will see a unique timepiece revealed later this year.

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 showed fruitful from the very beginning, when Bovet 1822 owner Mr. Pascal Raffy and Automobili Pininfarina Design Team met for the first time in Cambiano, Italy.

“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 together later this year, we aim to showcase another step forward in the world of artisanal horology.”
Per Svantesson, Automobili Pininfarina CEO

A Future Vision on Luxury.

The first timepiece that will be unveiled later in 2021 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 1822.

The shared vision and expertise become apparent in every aspect of the collaboration between Bovet 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina. The unique skills of both houses lead to the creation of a one-of-a-kind timepiece that simply could not be realized without the shared development process between the craftsmen at Bovet 1822 and the design team at Automobili Pininfarina.

A handmade masterpiece of horology constructed by the world’s most skilled precision artisans. The complete in-house development and manufacturing offer 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 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina, this can be taken a step further, giving our clients the possibility to express their own personality and that of their bespoke Battista through the Battista timepiece.

Purity in Design.

The upcoming timepiece is an expression of shared design values between Bovet 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina. With a focus on lightness and purity, the timepiece 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. A glass housing ensures that the inner beauty of this mechanical masterpiece can be enjoyed with admiration.

Both Bovet 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina are incredibly proud of the first timepiece that was created to start this collaboration. A timepiece that celebrates both houses’ design excellence, pioneering craftsmanship and vision for sustainable luxury.
