The new and unique piece Octo Roma Grande Sonnerie with Perpetual Calendar has been created to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the first Grande Sonnerie by Gerald Genta in 1994, it is an impeccable new addition to Bvlgari’s Grande Sonnerie assortment.
Since 1994, Bvlgari has introduced more than 90 Grande Sonnerie watches and 2019 is poised to be the year of the Grande Sonnerie for Bvlgari. The movements have been fine tuned from the beginning, and benefit from a security setting that protects the movement when winding with the chime and avoids activating the minute repeating system in grande sonnerie mode, offering the ultimate available know-how for such a complex movement.
The new model is a modern masterpiece that perfectly epitomizes Bvlgari’s mastery of Swiss mechanical and horological expertise. Bvlgari is the number one brand among chiming watches, having mastered that specialty with 2, 3 and 4 hammers (Grande Sonnerie).
At the pinnacle of the assortment, Bvlgari celebrates the 25th anniversary of the first Grande Sonnerie manufactured in Le Sentier with a unique piece, the Octo Roma Grande Sonnerie Perpetual Calendar.
This exceptionally complicated watch, with an automatic caliber BVL 980, aligns grande and petite sonnerie, minute repeater, tourbillon, perpetual calendar, moon phases, movement and chime power reserve indicators. The 44-mm case is made in carbon CTP and features a carbon middle part, a blend that delivers the best sound experience for a movement that comprises a total of 1180 components.
