Ms. Tú Lê, Chief Brand Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars HCMC shared.
Ms. Tú Lê, CEO of S&S Automotive, presented the shared values that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and House of Bovet 1822 have.
The Bovet 1822 watch brand is known for its mastery of traditional watchmaking. With a history of two centuries, the brand is always at the forefront of creative design and sustainable development of various arts and crafts such as sculpture, miniature painting, and the combination of different materials. Not only in terms of the artistic appearance of the watch, Bovet 1822 also always focuses on the quality of each movement they make. The traditional mechanical watch on the car dashboard is not simple because the moving space in the car is completely different from wearing a watch on the wrist, due to the impact of vibration (when the car starts and moves), humidity, and magnetic force. Bovet 1822 has succeeded in researching and crafting a watch pair that meets all the different needs and conditions on the Boat Tail model in terms of technicality and functionality. The watch pair also possesses the Tourbillon detail – an extremely complex detail to minimize the impact of magnetic force to make the watch movement operate accurately.
In addition, Bovet 1822 owns the Amadéo integrated strap system patented, which has made it possible for the watch to be detached, turning the watch face into a pocket watch and a desk watch with just one action without the need for any supporting devices. Moreover, with the watch pair exclusively for Boat Tail – also becomes the watch attached to the car dashboard thanks to the support detail installed inside the car, making it easy to remove the watch for wristwear or placement on the table without affecting the quality of the powertrain operation.
The exhibition aims to introduce the Bespoke capability of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars brand, emphasizing that Bespoke is not only about choosing from 44,000 available colors or various materials but also about other details that have never existed and are proposed from guests. The Boat Tail is a typical example of unlimited Bespoke capability, from the frame, color, added details such as champagne cabinets, outdoor seats, and sunshades are integrated on the car based on the owner’s desires.
