What better way to kick off the new year and, of course, the Lunar New Year, than a gift for that special loved one — or yourself. Bulgari spent the last two decades dedicating itself to establishing its fully integrated manufacture, one that is capable of breaking the barriers of not just movement design, but also case, bracelet, and dial manufacturing. As you will discover from this collection of five Bulgari watches, successfully completing this task has allowed Bulgari to set its own path, without anything limiting the brand’s celebrated creativity.
Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic
The Octo Finissimo: One of the most spectacular, but certainly not the only testament to what Bulgari, freed from all constraints, is capable of. More than an ultra-thin movement, the Octo Finissimo brings out the best of a 360-degree approach to watchmaking. Beyond the unrivaled Finissimo movement family, the case, the dial, and the bracelet all had to be made thinner and yet more robust than ever before. This was essential to make the most of the possibilities provided by a caliber that is just a few millimeters thick, and also to ensure that the Octo Finissimo is ready to take on the regular wear and tear modern life relentlessly subjects it to.
The Octo Finissimo GMT Automatic ranks among the more complicated models in the collection as its BVL 318 movement combines the trademark peripheral self-winding system of the Finissimo range with a chronograph as well as an independently adjustable second time zone display on the subdial at 3 o’clock. Water resistant to 100m and available in radiant blue and elegant silver, the Octo Finissimo GMT Automatic is ready to take on the world. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo GMT Automatic watch is priced at $17,600.
Bulgari Octo Roma World Timer
The Octo Roma is a spectacular take on the original Octo design. Operating with more volume than the Finissimo line, the 11.35mm-thick Octo Roma highlights the intricate beauty of the Octo: the faceted and polished lugs, the remarkably complex shape of the bezel with its sunburst brushed, angled top surface and trademark polished octagonal base, the bold integration between case and bracelet, as well as the screw-down crown and its ceramic end-piece. The sunburst brushed blue dial complements the bezel and delivers all the information a frequent traveler might need through the addition of a 24-hour ring and a 24-city ring. Highly functional, robust, 100m water resistant, yet also timelessly elegant, the 41mm-wide Octo Roma in steel is the ideal travel companion. Powered by the BVL 257 manufacture movement, the Bulgari Octo Roma World Timer watch in blue with a steel bracelet is priced at $9,050.
Bulgari Bulgari Watches In Black And In Two Sizes
So nice they named it twice: The Bulgari Bulgari is an emblematic collection of the Italian brand. Its delicate proportions are defined, yet not dominated, by a wide dial and narrow bezel, and are completed by a high-contrast, minimalist presentation of the time. Two sword hands for the hours and minutes, applied and brilliantly shining hour markers, and perhaps a seconds hand is all it takes to make the Bulgari Bulgari fashionable for today — and decades into the future. The Bulgari Bulgari design has taken on the diamond-like carbon treatment with incredible style and ease. The case, as well as the H-shape bracelet, are elaborately finished in stainless steel on both the 41mm-wide and the 33mm-wide version — the former with a date and central seconds hand, the latter without. The Bulgari Bulgari watch in 41mm is powered by the BVL 191 Solotempo manufacture caliber and is priced at $5,100, while the Bulgari Bulgari watch in 33mm is powered by the B043 quartz movement and is priced at $3,800.
Bulgari Serpenti Spiga Watch
The Serpenti Spiga double-spiral combines the deep, glossy sheen of high-tech, virtually scratchproof with the inimitable luster of 18k rose gold set with round brilliant-cut diamonds. Combining the audacity of Serpenti and the legend of Spiga — the Italian word for “spike” — the Serpenti Spiga unites the modern with the ancient. Contemporary in design, and purely Roman in its deep symbolism, this timepiece echoes the idea of infinity with its abstract wheat stalk pattern of the bracelet and its beautifully integrated links. At the flick of the wrist, light reflects off the thousands of facets of the 152 diamonds and plays on the smooth, gently curved surfaces in black ceramic. Captivating with the elegance of black, the creation fuses Bulgari’s jewelry artistry with its watchmaking savoir-faire. The Bulgari Serpenti Spiga in ceramic and 18k gold is priced at $16,800.
Bulgari Aluminium Sorayama Limited-Edition Watch
Bulgari, inimitably confident in its style, loves to team up with the world’s finest artists, and the Bulgari Aluminium Sorayama watch is among the latest to come from some of the most exciting collaborations in the world of modern watchmaking. Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator and designer renowned for his work on Sony’s famous AIBO line of robotic luxury toys through partnerships with Marc Ecko, Nike, and Lucasfilm. Relaunched in 2020, the Bulgari Aluminium provided the ideal canvas for Sorayama with its sleek lines, unique combination of materials — with an aluminum case and bracelet inserts, and a rubberized bezel, crown, and bracelet — that the artist has elevated it all to a new level with a special dial decorated with a perlage circular grain pattern. Sublimely comfortable and unique from every angle, the Bulgari Aluminium Sorayama Limited Edition watch is priced at $3,300.
