Bovet Pininfarina Tourbillon Ottana Watch
You can see the large pocket watch style crown at the top of the watch with the guard over it. Most Bovet watches share this design trait.Inside the watch is a marvelous movement that looks as good as it should operate. It is the automatic Bovet made Calibre 16BA01. It has a micro-rotor in solid platinum on the rear of the watch, and a number of functions. The Pininfarina Tourbillon Ottana watch has the time (with smaller single hand dial on the back of the watch), special seconds hands that makes a revolution each three minutes, but has indicators for each minute, big date indicator, power reserve indicator (watch has about 80 hours of power reserve), and a unique 80 second tourbillon.As such, this watch clearly fits into the convertible watch list that I wrote about here.There will be three versions of the Bovet Pininfarina Tourbillon Ottana watch, one with this DLC coated steel and titanium case, and another two models in titanium, with either 18k white or rose gold bezels instead of the black DLC bezel. The case is going to be 46mm wide and very complex in construction. There are 8 phrases engraved on the side of the case that each represent one decade of Pininfarina's existence. See below for the text of the phrases (you will have to translate them). The case is attractive. Nothing ultra-exciting, but then again, I might have to get my hands on it to change my opinion. This is often the case with such timepieces.
