A few years ago, Swiss luxury watchmaker Bovet teamed up with Italian car design company Pininfarina in order to celebrate the latter’s 80th anniversary. The collection made its debut in 2010 alongside the Amadeo case, with the latest piece in the series, the Bovet 1822 Sergio Split-Second Chronograph Watch, being based on the Sergio concept car designed by Pininfarina for Ferrari.
The Bovet by Pininfarina Collection is comprised of three exclusive tourbillion timepieces: the Ottanta, the Ottantadue, and the Ottantatre (Italian for Eighty, Eighty One, and Eighty Two), as well as the chronograph Cambiano. This new watch, as we’ve mentioned earlier, is inspired by the Sergio concept showcased by Pininfarina and Ferrari during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, which was a tribute to Sergio Pininfarina, the company’s president of 40 years.
The distinctive features both brands share – elegance, attention to detail, sophistication – are all apparent in this exquisite watch, along with something of a sporty outlook. Its movement is a self-winding mechanical chronograph, featuring a small-second, a 30 minute counter and a power-reserve indicator.
Bovet 1822 Sergio Split-Second Chronograph was released as a limited edition of just 250 pieces.
