The Bovet Aperto 1 is the result of a collaboration between Bovet and the Italian design house Pininfarina, which already started 14 years ago. The strong partnership has leaded to various kinds of unique watches including the Cambiano, the Sergio, the Ottanta, and the Ottantasei. Now, the Aperto 1, “open” in Italian, features a fully open-worked dial, available with blue or yellow accents on the absend dial.

This new Bovet is crafted in a 42 millimeter titanium case, and takes its inspiration from Pininfarina’s vast repertoire. Which includes sportscars, yachts, airplanes, architecture and furniture, and more. Through its skeletonized construction you can admire its entire mechanism. At the 6 o ‘clock position there are small seconds, and there is a power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock. Its unique crown is located on top of the case.

The Bovet Aperto 1 has a power reserve of 168 hours

The timepiece runs on a hand-wound Bovet caliber 15BMPF09-OW. It has a thickness of 5.8 millimeters and operates at a frequency of 3 Hz, providing a power reserve of 168 hours. The whole watch weights just 63 grams thanks to the skeletonized movement and titanium case.

The Bovet Aperto 1 comes on a blue or black Amadeo-inspired interchangeable rubber strap. It is secured with a titanium Ardillion buckle.
