From hypercars to high-end watches, Pininfarina truly does it all!
Pininfarina is so much more than just a big deal in the car world. The expert Italian designers got their hands on everything in the luxury lifestyle sector, from designing sleek yachts to creating stunning buildings and even teaming up with other top-notch brands for some seriously cool collaboration projects. One partnership that remains key to its DNA is its 14-year relationship with the historic horologists at Bovet 1822, whom they’ve already embarked on an exclusive journey with for the release of the Pininfarina Battista Tourbillon watch. Today, the dynamic duo is excited to unveil the all-new Aperto 1, crafted by Bovet and designed by Pininfarina. The Bovet Aperto 1 stands out as an open-worked timepiece that commemorates the traditional design staple of the watchmaking industry, which is why the word Aperto (Italian for “Open”) was chosen as its official name.
The 42mm modern marvel showcases a sand-blasted, matte-finished titanium case, with a detailed look at the inner workings of the watch through its fully skeletonized dial. The exclusive series comes in both a vibrant blue and yellow version. While it’s not driven by four 123kW electric motors like its Battista sibling, the Aperto 1 is powered by an in-house 15BMPF09-OW hand-wound movement with more than 219 components and a 7-day power reserve. Adding a cool and comfortable aspect to the Aperto 1, Bovet 1822 and Pininfarina decided to fit the watch on an Amadeo-inspired interchangeable strap (two straps included) with a lightweight, matching titanium buckle. The all-new Bovet 1822 x Pininfarina Aperto 1 is now available through authorized retailers around the world.
