THE ROLLS-ROYCE BOAT TAIL TIMEPIECES AN ARTISTIC COLLABORATION WITH BOVET 1822 8 June 2021, Goodwood, West Sussex • Rolls-Royce collaborates with Swiss master horologists BOVET 1822 to create unique timepieces for first Boat Tail coachbuilt commission • Pair of reversible tourbillon timepieces, each designed to be worn on the wrist, used as a table clock, pendant or pocket timepiece, or placed within the fascia as Boat Tail’s Timepiece • Timepieces and dashboard holder took 3,000 hours to develop and manufacture • Five-day power reserve and tourbillon mechanism ensure the timepieces keep perfect time when used as dashboard clocks “Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is a pure expression of its owners’ interests, influences and passions, with every detail minutely considered. We have enjoyed working with BOVET 1822 to create a pair of exquisite timepieces that also serve as Boat Tail’s dashboard clocks. In doing so we have together created historically significant items of detail, precision, and beauty. These remarkable objets d’art, unique to the first iteration of Boat Tail, represent the finest examples of the skills and values shared by our two great luxury Houses.” Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars "I am so proud of the BOVET 1822 team, who worked in tandem with their counterparts at Rolls-Royce to produce something truly spectacular. The owners of the coachbuilt car and these bespoke timepieces are personal friends, as well as valued collectors of BOVET 1822. It was important to do the very best for them - two completely unique pieces that are unlike anything we have ever done before." Pascal Raffy, Owner, BOVET 1822 A MOMENT IN TIME The clock in a Rolls-Royce motor car frequently assumes a jewel-like status, often becoming a canvas for the client to tell the story of their commission in miniature. For Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, the recently unveiled first of three coachbuilt creations, in which every element has been created to the owners' exact specifications, this iconic centrepiece has been elevated to new technical and aesthetic heights. In a spirit of warm collaboration, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and Swiss master watchmakers, BOVET 1822, have created a pair of unique timepieces for Boat Tail and its owners. This ambitious undertaking brought together designers, engineers and craftspeople from both luxury Houses, in a magnificent demonstration of their shared values of excellence, precision, heritage, artistry, innovation and attention to detail. The timepieces are unique to both the horological and automotive worlds. Made as a pair - in lady's and gentleman's versions - they are reversible, and housed in BOVET 1822's patented Amadeo case, which allows them to be worn on the wrist, or used as a table clock, pendant or pocket-watch, as well as being placed front and centre in Boat Tail’s fascia as the motor car’s own timepiece. Both are fitted with tourbillon mechanisms to ensure perfect accuracy.
