The British brand Rolls-Royce, in collaboration with the Swiss watch company Bovet 1822, has created an exclusive watch for the owners of the luxury Rolls-Royce Boat Tail. The watch model is presented for both men and women.
Rolls-Royce is a brand that creates vehicles exclusively for each customer’s order. As brand representatives have said more than once, the company prides itself on its craftsmanship and exclusivity. These two features were fully showcased last month when the company unveiled the unique Boat Tail, but Rolls’ taste for uniqueness extends far beyond the automotive industry. The automaker has partnered with the Swiss watchmaker Bovet 1822 to create and design a pair of watches for car owners that can be worn or fitted into the dashboard.
Bovet has created a new 18K 44mm white gold case designed and tested to meet automotive vibration and crash safety standards.
Bovet has installed a special tourbillon designed to ensure the watch is accurate against the vibrations of the car, giving the watch a five-day power reserve to sit on the dashboard. The handcrafted gold Spirit of Ecstasy sits on the tourbillon bridge just below the dial, which is finished in the same Caleidolegno finish found on the aft deck of the Boat Tail.
Each watch face has the names of the owners, but they are not visible in the photographs. The men’s watch case is polished to a high shine, while the women’s watch is decorated with decorative engraving and accented with blue lacquer. The back of each watch features a Boat Tail sculpture that matches the color of a full-size car. However, each of them has its own characteristics, for example, the heavenly arrangement of the night sky over the place of birth of a man on his birthday and a flower bouquet at the place of birth of a woman.
Rolls-Royce says it took a total of 3,000 hours to make the watch, a conservative estimate, the company said.
