  • Catalogue Essay

    The Ottanta Sei is the result of a collaborative effort between watch brand Bovet and Italian automotive designer Pininfarina. The watch is a contemporary masterpiece featuring a tourbillon and a sleek aerodynamic case with symmetric dial. The four sapphire panels and titanium case exemplify their design philosophy for a watch that is “light”, both from a weight perspective and for its transparency.

    Bovet offered this timepiece in a limited number of 86 watches in platinum, rose gold and titanium. The present lot is number one and is a delightful addition to a collection that appreciates modern horology and design.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1822

    The firm Bovet 1822 has a rich, centuries-long history beginning when Edouard Bovet sold four decorative pocket watches in Canton Asia for what would today equal $1 million. By 1822, Edouard, with his brothers, registered the company in London, which at the time was an important center for watches and clocks. That same year, they moved their manufacturing center to the Swiss municipality Fleurier. Bovet became known for their highly decorative pocket watches for the Chinese market. Their richly engraved movements were so important to the watch that Bovet created the concept of the transparent watch back so owners could see the beauty of the movement. Bovet's oversized chronograph wristwatches, such as the Mono Rattrapante chronograph, are especially sought-after. Today, the firm continues their tradition of exquisitely enameled watches.
