BOVET – OttantaSei Flying Tourbillon – Pininfarina Blue & Bronze Edition

BOVETOttantaSei Flying Tourbillon – Pininfarina Titanium Blue & Bronze Limited Edition

OttantaSei Flying Tourbillon – blue and bronze editionDESIGNED BY Pininfarina

Presented in 2016, the Ottantasei tourbillon from the Pininfarina collection instantly drew admiration from even the most demanding collectors. When Pascal Raffy issued the specifications for this timepiece, his desire was to create a tourbillon that bore all the visual hallmarks of the now legendary Ottanta tourbillon, with practically perfect dimensions and proportions.

Transparency and lightness were the watchwords for every stage in the development of the collection’s latest flagship creation. Although the light and airy movement imagined by the Italian designers suggests a tubular structure, this latest Ottantasei takes reliability and chronometry to new heights.

The BOVET craftsmen joined forces with the designers in Turin to produce this genuine tour de force, which combines stunning ergonomics with a patented flying tourbillon that offers a ten-day power reserve driven by a single barrel.

The unusual three-dimensional openwork adorning the movement is a glory to behold from every angle. In addition to sapphire crystals revealing both sides of the movement, broad apertures have been added laterally along the entire edge of the case middle.

This year, collectors have been treated to a choice of two new cases. Each of them is machined in grade 5 titanium for ever-greater lightness. And for a touch of sublime elegance, their surfaces have been embellished with either bronze or blue PVD treatments.

While these two new cases complement the various versions of this emblematic model available to collectors, only 86 movements will be produced in total (all models combined). The widespread popularity of the Pininfarina collection — and of the Ottantasei Tourbillon in particular — suggest that these newest additions to this exclusive series will barely suffice to meet the exceptionally high demand for this truly extraordinary timepiece.
