Bulgari’s Bulgari-Bulgari is one of their most iconic designs, and for 2013 has received a deserved update. The history of the Bulgari Bulgari (Bvlgari Bvlgari) is over 35 years old and once again begins with Mr. Gerald Genta. The late watch designer is responsible for perhaps too many of today’s top luxury watch icons.

The legacy of Gerald Genta continues to live on in multiple forms. We now look at the Octo watch with Bulgari’s name on it that for 2013 comes on a metal bracelet. Where did this story begin? The late designer resided in Monaco before his death (to cancer I believe). I think that while he worked in the watch industry for a large portion of his life, he always had a love/hate relationship with the industry that made him rich.
The legacy of Gerald Genta lives on now with even more Bulgari-ness. The original Gerald Genta Octo was a fascinating timepiece with a range of complicated movements. The “Octo” name referred to the eight-sided case, and unfortunately there are no tentacles related to this product. While certainly unique, I have to say that the Octo […]
Buglari (Bvlgari) was really proud of the fact that no Maserati branding was on the dial of their special edition Octo watch for Maserati. Turn the piece over and you’ll see the famous Trident logo, but the word “Maserati” does not appear anywhere on the watch itself. That is interesting and perhaps wise. Logically, an […]
It is hard to begin a review of a watch like this. There is just so much to say, and I don’t know where to begin. So many elements of the watch and its history merit discussion – and I can’t cover it all. I’ll do my best, and am very excited to present to […]
This new Bulgari Daniel Roth collection watch joins the ranks (small ranks) of million dollar plus timepieces from the brand. Offering a wildly complicated movement and inspiration from the Daniel Roth brand that Bulgari engulfed into itself, this piece is one serious homage to a love of horology. Based on the commentary I have received […]
This piece of rare game goes for an awful lot of coin. It has an interesting history, as well, starting out as the Gerald Genta Arena Metasonic Sonnerie watch. When Bulgari engulfed the Gerald Genta brand (head nod to Genta who just passed away), they kept this piece and made a few style changes to […]
Bvlgari, err… Bulgari always looks better in all caps right? While I have been seeing lots of confused designs from Bulgari as of late, this Diagono X-Pro is something I am not at all confused about liking (which is to say that I do like it). The cool masculine watch takes a few lessons from […]
I discussed a little while ago about how Bulgari (Bvlgari) incorporated Gerald Genta, and Daniel Roth (brands it already owned) into the Bulgari brand. You can read all about that and see a video interview with Bulgari talking about it here. The first product of this digestive affair is this watch. Basically a re-branded Gerald […]
The pursuit continued of life in the house of troubled luxury brand has a method. Bulgari has recently announced news that should be considered uncommon at the least. In a strange move that I would have never predicted, the Bulgari brand actually eats two other brands that it already owns. The result will be a […]
I love this watch. I’ve always loved Bulgari anything, but this watch is just so sensuous and harmonious…I want it now. Inspired by Italian Style and Design with Swiss watchmaking expertise, the Bulgari-Bulgari Moonphase model features the automatic Bulgari caliber B77 movement with moonphase complication. With launches such as this, Bulgari is definitely making some […]
