Sportster Saguaro is one of my favorite series of luxury watches. And with the tourbillon version Bovet takes the impressive design and retains the durable looks while creating a unique high luxury timepiece. The good news is that it is a lovely and decorated timepiece with a visually interesting tourbillon based movement with a power reserve indicator. The bad news is that most of the watches in this limited edition series are sold out. The Sportster Saguaro Tourbillon is available in 40, 45, and 51mm wide case sizes. Each in 18k red gold with PVD titanium. The dial on each sized version is a bit different. Engraved gold is hand decorated and chiseled and beautifully done. The practicality of the movement is increased by being an automatic and having a full 7 days of power reserve.
Each version of the watch is available in just 100 pieces, with the 40mm version already being sold out. I've personally handled one of the larger versions. The combination of crafts-like decoration with the sporty nature of the rubber strap and 300 meters of watch resistance is very impressive. And while Bovet submitted to the cliche policy of adding a dash of red to sum up the sporty look, here the trendy hue fits with a dashing watch demeanor.
