Prestige (Singapore)

Bespoke Luxury


A pair of customised his and hers Rolls-royce Boat Tail timepieces by Bovet 1822 were on display for the first time in Singapore recently. The marque debuted a unique coach-built Boat Tail commission that integrated Bovet’s bespoke timepieces into the dashboard by way of a never-done-before mounting system that required years of research and testing. Both models sport a front dial with handapplie­d Caleidoleg­no wood marquetry using the same wood from the Boat Tail, while a hand-sculpted and engraved gold statue of the Rolls-royce Spirit of Ecstasy features prominentl­y on the tourbillon bridge. The dials are even more personalis­ed on the reverse side. The masculine timepiece flaunts an aventurine dial with the owner’s sky chart overlaid on top. The feminine timepiece is adorned with a miniature painting of a flower bouquet on a mother-of-pearl dial. On the reverse, both dials bear custom hand-engraved sculptures of the Boat Tail, lacquered to match the colour of the car and adorned with miniature painting for the details such as the wheels, mirrors and more. As a finishing touch for this side of the dial, the name of each owner’s other half is engraved onto the tourbillon bridge.
