The essence of the partnership between Bovet and Pininfarina resides in the decoration of this automatic tourbillion. BOVET provides its exceptional expertise in mechanical architecture and its mastery of multiple, age-old and modern decorative techniques, while the latter contributes its virtuosity in terms of design, elegance and colour associations.
In close collaboration with their counterparts at Pininfarina, the design team at DIMIER 1738 developed exterior parts and a "motorization" that merge into a single, coherent entity, managing to overcome considerable obstacles to create an overall effect of clarity and depth despite the extreme complexity of the movement. Experts in the art of showing materials and volumes to optimal effect, Pininfarina designers suggested using the widest possible range of nuances of grey, for smoothing volumes.
The visual identifiers of both Houses are expressed to perfection by the watch‟s exterior parts, which together evoke their most prestigious creations. The case is a revisited version of the already famous AMADEO by BOVET, proposed here in titanium and steel completed with black DLC covering. Two other versions with a white or rose gold bezel and case-back are also available.
The strap for its part is composed of two types of rubber whose surface reflects the block-polish and sand-jetted finish of the movement‟s constituent parts. It has duplicate-moulded stainless-steel inserts ensuring harmonious integration with the case and an "alcantara effect" calfskin lining created specifically for optimal comfort. Fifty different operations were required for its manufacturing.
As a tribute to the 80th anniversary of Pininfarina, the technical designers of DIMIER 1738, created a tourbillon which makes one complete revolution in exactly 80 seconds. The upper pivot of the tourbillon cage carries a hand which naturally does not display the seconds but traverses eight segments, recalling the number of decades in Pininfarina‟s history, and points to eight emblematic phrases penned by Pininfarina and engraved on the timepiece. The work of engraving was the most demanding task in the manufacture of this case in terms of time and resources, to ensure that despite its size, the wording remained clearly legible to the naked eye. The assembly is balanced by a specially designed Pininfarina screw.
"In this cooperation we set man and his needs at the centre of a design philosophy whose cornerstone is an elegant, essential style, as Pininfarina usually does both in car design and product design – comments. The exclusive watches we developed with Bovet represent a blend of the most advanced features of technological research, art, craftsmanship, love for details with the attractiveness that should accompany everyday-use objects. The Pininfarina-Bovet partnership becomes then the ideal meeting point of Italian style and Swiss expertise in creating unique, iconic watches."
