BULGARI/BVLGARI WATCHES – Models with Technical Specifications, Price, Brand Details, History, News and Archives

Bvlgari Aluminium Sorayama Special Edition

Limited to 1,000 pieces, this special edition watch was created in collaboration with legendary Japanese artist Sorayama.

The Bulgari Aluminium Sorayama Special Edition watch is a composition reflecting the imagination and flair for details of the Japanese hyper-realism artist. Mirroring past and future, Sorayama’s work reflects a fascination with the classicism of the 1930s and 1940s, as well as the exciting mechanical advances in the fields of aviation and automobiles.

The watch opts for the restrained look of galvanised textures and details recalling the aesthetics of 1930s and 1940s cars and planes. On the silver-toned dial with its shimmering pearlescent swirls evoking the light playing across gleaming bodywork, the propeller-shaped hour-markers and hands are enhanced with Super-LumiNova®.

The only numeral visible is the 2, thereby honouring the artist’s lucky number and representing more than a nod and instead a deliberate reference. This limited-edition model with its aluminium case and rubber bezel has a diameter of 40 mm and is water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres.

The crown is made of reinforced black titanium. The same goes for the caseback bearing Sorayama’s signature in deep black.

The The Bulgari Aluminium Sorayama Special Edition watch houses a mechanical self-winding movement with a 42-hour power reserve.

The iconic rubber strap picks up the metallic accents of aluminium on its links and pin buckle.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Sejima Edition

Bvlgari has launched an Octo Finissimo special edition watch in collaboration with Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima.

Winner of the 2010 Pritzker Prize and of the Golden Lion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2004, Sejima designed her own vision of the Octo Finissimo. This 360-piece limited edition is characterised by a mirror effect and a play on transparency.

Working on the contrast between material and transparency, the visible and the invisible, she designed this Octo Finissimo Sejima Edition to reflect the aesthetic codes running through her work.

The model is distinguished by a powerful mirror effect on the sapphire crystal dial, enriched by a dot pattern also designed by the Japanese architect and further enhanced by the fully polished steel case and bracelet.

Sejima’s signature is inscribed on the sapphire crystal caseback revealing the self-winding Manufacture movement, BVL Calibre 138.

The Octo Finissimo Sejima Edition is delivered in a special presentation steel box reproducing the model’s characteristic mirror effect.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Gold

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Octo collection, Bulgari is expanding its Octo Finissimo range with the Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT model in pink gold and the Octo Finissimo Automatic in pink or yellow gold.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic Gold

This new edition of the Automatic Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT watch features a satin-brushed rose gold case and a subtle brown-lacquered dial.

Launched in 2019, the automatic GMT chronograph from the Octo Finissimo range holds a world thinness record at just 3.3 mm thick.

The ultra-thin 43 mm-diameter octagonal case is water-resistant to 100 metres. It is fitted with a brown alligator leather strap secured by a folding clasp.

Controlled by pushers on either side of the case, the chronograph and GMT functions are driven by BVL Calibre 318, an integrated automatic Manufacture movement. Naturally sophisticated and subtly ostentatious, this GMT chronograph with its ultra-thin rose gold case remains to this day the slimmest mechanical chronograph ever made.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Gold

The new gold version of the Octo Finissimo Automatic is a distillation of purity and restraint, the two signature features of the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo collection.

Whether in rose or yellow gold, the play on contrasts between these gleaming shades and the brown-lacquered dial gives these models a powerful personality. Another contrast seen for the first time in this collection lies in the alternating matt and polished effects on the case and bracelet, heralding a brilliant chapter in the saga of the Finissimo line.

These models beat to the rhythm of the optimised self-winding Manufacture movement, BVL Calibre 138. With its 208 components and 31 jewels, the new version retains its record slimness of 2.23 mm. It also features a new automatic winding system, the introduction of a closed barrel and a new structure for the escapement and balance.

While the rose gold model is part of the regular collection, the yellow gold version, reserved for the American market, is offered in a 50-piece limited edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Bulgari boutique in the United States.

The Tubogas technique based on particularly demanding metal craftsmanship is applied to the links of the black ceramic bracelet set with 152 diamonds (totalling1 ct.

The art of gem-setting is also expressed on the rose gold bezel lit up by 38 diamonds (0.29 ct), creating a truly magical effect. The Bvlgari Serpenti Spiga Ceramic watch is issued in a 340-piece limited edition.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Black

“Serpenti, or “snake” in Italian, is an infinite source of inspiration for Bulgari. In 2019, the Maison has reimagined one of its legends in a slimmer and equally sensual case, sporting a bracelet with hexagonal scales. The Serpenti has thus been transformed into the Serpenti Seduttori.

The model now appears attired in black. Its case features the distinctive teardrop-shaped watch head, while its supple, second skin-like bracelet gently hugs the wrist.

Bulgari is offering not one but two versions of this refined model with a dial that passes through shadows to arrive at nuances revealing flashes of brilliance.

The two references convey a strong message, a glamour manifesto in a 33 mm steel case featuring a DLC treatment with powerfully complimentary black textures.

Its rose gold bezel makes a perfect match with the dark side of the timepiece, available in either a classic edition or in a flamboyant iteration set with 38 round brilliant-cut diamonds (0.38ct).

Both Serpenti Seduttori watches house a quartz movement and are fitted with a dainty and ingenious folding clasp.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon White Gold, Diamonds and Black Spinels

The new Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon watch fuses Haute Joaillerie and Haute Horlogerie.

Snakes have inspired Bulgari since the 1940s. All it takes is a simple teardrop-shaped watch case and a bracelet that wraps around the wrist one or more times to evoke the spirit of Serpenti.

The Serpenti watch collection is constantly undergoing new transformations. Bulgari continues to perpetuate this daring destiny with the Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon, a high jewellery watch adorned with Spinels and diamonds.

Measuring 34 mm diameter, the iconic snake-head case in white gold is entirely set with diamonds, while its bezel sparkles with black spinels.

Its curved, supple, extremely comfortable bracelet pays tribute to Bulgari’s unique expertise in this area and invokes the entire mythology of the serpent. Witness the entrancing allure of this creation with its mesh pattern sometimes paved with diamonds and sometimes with black spinels.

The BVL 150 manual winding movement powering the Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon has a thickness of 3.65 mm. The view of the tourbillon mechanism at 6 o’clock is simply breathtaking.

A perfect fusion of Italian design and Swiss watchmaking expertise, the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton 8 Days pink gold watch comes with a new manufacture movement.

The new BVL 199 SK hand-wound manufacture movement has an exceptional 8-day power reserve, as indicated by the gauge-shaped indicator embracing the curvature of the small seconds counter at 7:30.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater, Ref. 103669

Bvlgari has unveiled a new version of its ultra-thin Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater watch.

In 2016, two years after the debut of the Octo Finissimo collection, Bulgari released the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater, the thinnest chiming watch on the market.

Remarkably complex and slender (3.12 mm for the movement and 6.85 mm for the case), this timepiece immediately stands out by its modern and refined design.

Crafted in ultra-light titanium, its octagonal case measuring 40 mm in diameter opens onto a dial also in titanium, with open-worked hour-markers and small seconds. These stylised apertures further amplify the excellent acoustic properties of titanium.

Today, Bulgari revisits the bold and powerful style of this grand complication in a very contemporary version in sandblasted titanium with a matte blue open-worked dial and structured rubber strap.

The understated and contemporary design frames a manual-winding in-house movement: the ultra-thin BVL 362 calibre driving the hours, minutes, small seconds and minute repeater functions.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo 10th Anniversary Editions: Octo Finissimo Automatic and Octo Finissimo GMT Automatic Chronograph

Bvlgari marks the 10th anniversary of its iconic ultrathin watch family by unveiling two limited edition watches: Octo Finissimo Automatic and GMT Automatic Chronograph – crafted in titanium.

The anniversary editions evoke the origins of its conception: the first sketches made by Bulgari’s Product Creation Executive Director, Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani. A few years later, these Pencil sketches gave life to the unmistakable Octo Finissimo line.

Today these sketches adorn the engraved dials of two flagship models – Octo Finissimo Automatic and Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic.

These feather-light monochrome anniversary models fully express the Bulgari approach to masculine elegance and pay tribute to two emblematic timepieces in the Octo Finissimo saga.

Presented in 2017, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic, the thinnest ultra-thin watch on the market, set the third world record for the collection, with a total thickness of 5.15 mm housing a movement equipped with a micro-rotor and measuring just 2.23 mm.

Two years later, in 2019, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic made its own mark with a fifth feat of extreme miniaturisation for the thinnest mechanical chronograph with GMT function in watchmaking history, at just 3.3 mm thick.

Embodying the aesthetic signature of the Finissimo collection, the case, dial and bracelet are crafted from ultralight titanium, ensuring a modern look and peerless elegance. The strong and bold lines of the case, inspired by Italian architectural masterpieces, express Bulgari’s Roman roots, while the play of light in its facets catches the gaze.

The sandblasted finish of the titanium contrasts with the black PVD-treated hands, the hour-markers, the Bulgari logo and the engraved small seconds counter, reproducing Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani’s early sketches.

The overall effect combines perfect legibility with an original style. Topped by a ceramic-set crown, the sleek 40 mm-diameter case is teamed with a smoothly integrated bracelet composed of supple links, prolonging the sense of comfort and lightness on the wrist.

Both anniversary models are issued in 200-piece limited editions.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori New Models

Born in 2019, the Bvlgari Seduttori line has retained the snake’s head. While Serpenti first became known for its Tubogas bracelet, Bulgari has chosen to broaden the reptile’s impact by adding a new bracelet.

Its construction is based on an architecture composed of hexagonal motifs, a stylistic element used by Bulgari since the creation of the first Serpenti watches. Characterised by absolute fluidity, it flows over the wrist to fit like a barely perceptible second skin.

It forms one with the case, which represents the head of the snake, as part of a very well-balanced momentum. Whether made of steel, rose gold and steel or full rose gold, this new configuration expresses the perfectly proportioned and flawless elegance that befits accomplished creations.

Bulgari is presenting its three most iconic variations graced with a new dramatic black lacquer dial, framed by a steel, steel and rose gold or full rose gold case.

Steel or rose gold hour-markers; diamonds set around the edge of the bezel forming two arcs of a circle to recall the jewellery ancestry of the creations; as well as the characteristic cabochon-cut rubellite: multiple features contribute to enhancing the sparkle and luminosity of these models.

Technical details

Model: Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori 103449

Bvlgari Serpenti Tubogas New Models

Bulgari’s single-tour Serpenti Tubogas wristwatch for women is now available in a bimetallic combination of yellow gold and steel, or exclusively in yellow gold set with diamonds on either side of the reptile’s head, embellished with a white opaline guilloché dial.

Christened Tubogas because of its similarity to a lowly woven-metal gas pipe, the technique has been used in jewellery making since the late 1940s.

An eloquent example of industrial-inspired design, it was popularised in the Art Deco period when the challenge of miniaturising large engineered objects, and using them for novel purposes, took off.

 

In the 1940s, Bulgari inserted a watch dial into a Tubogas bracelet to create a highly stylised serpent watch. The design was revived in the 1970s when Bulgari introduced it into watches, bracelets, necklaces and rings. The effect of a stark, engineered coil combined with coins and richly coloured precious gems created a fascinating contrast that marked Bulgari’s style of jewels, intended to be worn and enjoyed every day.

Complicated to produce, the Tubogas is formed by long bands of gold or steel, wrapped around a steel core. As they are coiled, the rounded contours of the bands interlock to conceal completely the inner structure.

The specialist goldsmiths use no soldering. The flexibility of the coiled bands alone is what gives the Tubogas its characteristic bounce.

Technical details

Bvlgari Serpenti Misteriosi Romani High Jewellery Secret Watch

The Serpenti Misteriosi Romani High Jewellery secret watch represents an ultra-luxurious interpretation of the iconic Serpenti motif.

Inspired by classical Rome and in a nod to the gold bracelets worn by upper-class society, the creation is one of the most expensive high-end timepieces ever made by Bulgari.

Winner of the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) with the Jewellery Watch Prize in 2019, this truly spectacular one-of-a-kind creation comprises a massive number of precious stones.

 

The snake’s head is crowned with a 10-carat Sri Lankan sapphire and a total of more than 60 carats of diamonds, while 35 carats of sapphires form the serpent’s body and scales.

The magnificent piece echoes Bulgari’s Roman roots, emblematic of ancient gladiators and antique jewels. As sensuous as its inspiration, the cuff bracelet features a snake sinuously coiled around it.

To reinforce the theme, the cuff is embellished with baguette-cut diamond scales, so that the wrist inhabits the design and becomes part of the snake itself.

Bvlgari Lvcea Intarsio

Bvlgari’s Lvcea timepiece collection pays homage to the sundials of ancient Rome that captured light to signal the passage of time

Unveiled at the LVMH Watch Week 2022, the new Bvlgari Lvcea Intarsio watch models add new colours to the palette, with their three-dimensional architectural dials crafted in materials that capture and enhance the light. Pink mother-of-pearl and aventurine compose the two new Lvcea shades ensuring maximum chromatic effect and infusing the collection with an additional jewellery touch.

Bvlgari Lvcea Intarsio Aventurine 28mm, reference 103617

Furthering a classic métiers d’art technique applied to the mother-of-pearl, each of the dials is assembled using the marquetry technique in a pattern called Intarsio.

Bvlgari Lvcea Intarsio Aventurine 33mm, reference 103620

In both cases, each of the 37 mother-of-pearl and blue aventurine micro-elements are cut and then faceted by hand before being assembled according to a precise and regular geometry to form the three-dimensional surface of the dial.

This complex and refined handcrafted construction captures all the variations in light, like the skies of the Eternal City, to reproduce its full brilliance, as seen through the diamond hour-markers dotting the rims of these sophisticated dials.

Bvlgari Octo Roma Emerald Grande Sonnerie

Unveiled during the LVMH Watch Week 2022, this mechanical masterpiece elegantly blends greatest traditions of Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie with Bulgari’s characteristic Roman style and daring designs.

Adorned with shimmering baguette-cut emeralds and diamonds, this contemporary styled high complication watch incorporates the extremely complex Grande Sonnerie four-gong mechanism.

The Maison has uncompromisingly committed to an innovation-driven attitude in all its watches, however complex or rare. This philosophy is expressed in the Estetica della Meccanica approach, making even the most extreme and archaic complications relevant and desirable to a new age of cognoscenti and collectors.

As the pioneer of contemporary Haute Horlogerie, Bulgari propels heritage and exquisite savoir faire into the future with this design-driven approach that transforms traditional constraints into exciting opportunities.

As a chiming watch, the new bejewelled Grande Sonnerie joins the orchestra of the Sinfonia della Meccanica, along with other masterpieces that allows the wearer to experience the wonder of the mechanical heart of the watch through the pure and primordial emotion of sound.

The Grande Sonnerie with four hammers and gongs is considered the queen of complications and is Bulgari’s most complex timepiece to date. The Maison is amongst only a handful of Swiss watchmakers capable of producing a Grande Sonnerie mechanism that sounds the hours, quarters and minutes.

The watch has a harmonious Westminster chime that can be silenced or activated on demand by the side buttons. The creation is powered by the superlative BVL 703 automatic winding, tourbillon-regulated calibre that is composed of 732 individual components diligently assembled over nine months by one master watchmaker, who also carries out any later adjustments or services.


The new Octo Roma Grande Sonnerie watch is set with 446 baguette-cut Zambian emeralds and diamonds totalling over 30 carats.

Crafted in white gold with a sapphire crystal case-back, this outstanding creation reveals a graphic, architectural look featuring a pattern of jointed elements that harmoniously conveys a sense of dynamic lightness and eternal beauty. This one-of-a-kind creation is presented on a green alligator strap to match the emerald-set bezel.

Bvlgari Octo Roma Blue Carillon Tourbillon

The new Octo Roma complication watch by Bulgari unites modern interpretations of two traditional complications: Tourbillon and Carillon.

Redefining watchmaking tradition in a resolutely modernist approach, this timepiece features a highly graphic skeletonised movement with blue bridges. The platinum case is encircled by a blued titanium caseband.

It has been designed to amplify the sound rendition and clarity, which is the primary parameter governing the construction of a striking watch. The Octo Roma Carillon Tourbillon movement with three hammers, hand-wound calibre BVL428, measures 35 mm in diameter, 8.35 mm thick and comprises a total of 432 components. It is entirely manufactured in-house.

The generous proportions of the case are designed to maximise sound propagation, enabling increased torque from the three-tone construction and greater sound power production. In particular, the caseband is designed to maximise sound and allow it to spread as much as possible. It has cavities inside the design to reduce the amount of metal between the inside and outside, and three openings on the caseband that correspond to the three gongs, thus allowing the sound to exit the chamber.

The gongs are attached directly to the body of the case for the most efficient sound transmission and the middle-case is made of titanium to ensure the clearest possible sound diffusion. The back is also hollowed out and redesigned with a titanium grid that protects this resonant area and enables outward transmission of the sound.

The gongs on the watch are hand-crafted in several stages. They are bent and formed by hand before being annealed, or hardened, at a temperature of 900 degrees Celsius, then cleaned before being reheated in a 500-degree kiln, a process that endows the metal with its crystal-clear resonance. Like some components of the striking mechanism, they are drawn out with a file, in order to refine the chords of the chime.

The melodic sequence of this chime with three hammers striking three tones plays the note C for the hours, the notes E D C for the quarters and the note E for the minutes. The mechanism is activated by a pusher on the left side of the caseband.

The movement is equipped with one classical barrel ensuring the power reserve of at least 75 hours for the movement at full charge, meanwhile the functioning of the sound mechanism is ensured by a spring which is contained in a barrel-shaped container drilled directly in the bridge.

The architecture of the BVL428 calibre, the cut-out of the bridges and the positioning of the various components are original, contemporary and contrasted in order to reveal the beauty of the mechanism.

The hammers, gongs, tourbillon cage and perforated surfaces are made of alternating polished steels, while the finely worked mainplate and bridges feature an ALD treatment. The high-tech carbon-based vacuum-deposition coating is an elegant deep blue.

Secured with a transparent sapphire crystal caseback, its 44mm diameter case is water-resistant to three atmospheres.

The Bvlgari Octo Roma Blue Carillon Tourbillon comes with a blue alligator leather strap secured by a platinum triple-blade folding clasp. This timepiece is available in a limited edition of 30 pieces.

Bvlgari Serpenti Misteriosi High Jewellery Secret Watches

The new Serpenti Misteriosi timepieces by Bulgari embody new feats of miniaturisation associated with the jewellery and decorative excellence of the Rome-based Maison.

During the LVMH Watch Week 2022, Bulgari launched four new Serpenti secret-watches revisiting the iconic design from the 1950s and paying tribute to the 80th anniversary of the first Bulgari secret watch featuring a rectangular dial concealed by a hinged cover set with brilliant-cut diamonds and decorated with baguette diamonds.

The new creations are all equipped with the new Piccolissimo mechanical movement, one of the smallest in the world, entirely conceived and produced within the Bulgari Manufacture in Le Sentier. The BVL100 calibre revives the very small mechanical ‘motors’ that equipped all women’s watches until the early 1970s.

Measuring 12.30 mm in diameter and 2.50 mm thick, the BVL100 calibre indicating the hours and minutes is housed in the head of the reptile within a dedicated container. The Manufacture leveraged its rich experience in the domain of Finissimo watches to create a very compact movement weighing only 1.30 grams.

The extreme miniaturisation of its 102 components is vividly illustrated in the barrel featuring a total diameter of just 5.00 mm for a thickness of 1.47 mm and a spring that is 170 mm long before being wound. Moreover, to ensure the greatest inertia according to the very small size of the movement, the Manufacture opted for a white gold balance wheel.

Pressing the snake’s tongue on the Serpenti Misteriosi opens the head to reveal the watch. A bidirectional crown located on the caseback enables manual winding and time-setting. This dual function operates by means of a system of reversers.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Ultra

Bulgari presents Octo Finissimo Ultra, the world’s thinnest mechanical watch. It has surpassed the record of the Piaget Altiplano Ultimate Concept, which has a thickness of 2mm. This innovative ultrathin timepiece from the Octo Finissimo family redefines the codes of Haute Horlogerie with an astonishing thickness of 1.80 mm. It is also the eighth record for the Bulgari Octo Finissimo collection in the ultra-thin watches segment.

The Octo Finissimo Ultra also retains all the codes of the collection. It features the monochrome style signature of sandblasted titanium. The 40 mm octagonal case is fitted on an integrated bracelet as thin as the watch. As for the seconds display on the wheel at 6 o’clock, it is once again off-centred in relation to the indication of the hours and minutes on two regulator-type counters.

The extremely thin mechanical movement (BVL Calibre 180) was developed in collaboration with Concepto, La Chaux-de-Fonds. The construction of the Octo Finissimo Ultra uses the caseback as a mainplate on which the 170 components of the BVL Calibre 180 are integrated.

The volume of the bracelet links also had to be totally rethought since, at 1.80 mm thick, they fit perfectly into the continuity of the thinness of the case, yet are twice as thin as an ordinary Octo Finissimo bracelet. In addition, the folding clasp had to be designed according to new parameters.

The case middle, bezel and titanium lugs as well as the caseback/mainplate element are made in tungsten carbide, a particularly dense, hard and ultra-resistant combination of carbon and tungsten. Moreover, in order to take advantage of the entire surface of the watch, the hours and minutes dials, the large barrel – which stores 50 hours of power reserve – as well as the escapement made light of the circular geometry of the bezel opening by doing things a little differently.

In addition to displaying time indications, the dial also serves to hold other components in place. Instead of a classic vertical crown, the watch comes with two horizontally placed knobs – one for winding and the other for setting – which enable easy handling when the watch is on the wrist. To achieve exceptional thinness, all the watch functions are in the same horizontal plane. Another ingenious innovation lies in a differential gear mechanism serving to handle time-setting without disturbing the gear train.

A total of eight patent applications have been filed. They relate to the watch glass assembly, barrel structure, oscillator module, differential display, modular structure, bracelet, bimetal case middle-mainplate/caseback, as well as the Bvlgari Singvlarity technology.

The barrel’s ratchet wheel has a QR code engraved on it. Once scanned, this individual key invites you into a new dimension, connected to a unique timeless experience.

Each of the ten first Octo Finissimo Ultra timepieces will be delivered with an exclusive NFT artwork which, thanks to blockchain technology, guarantees the authenticity and uniqueness of the watch. It also gives each owner exclusive access to a digital universe dedicated to their own watch.

Bvlgari Divina Mosaica

The Divina Mosaica collection offers high-jewellery wristwatches inspired by the roots of Bvlgari, the iconic Maison based in Rome. The Baths of Caracalla and its fan-paved floors are the major cultural icons of this historical city. To adorn full-set dials of the three new Divina Mosaica models, Bvlgari has utilized a motif inspired by the pattern of mosaics in the Baths of Caracalla.

Bvlgari Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater, reference 103497

Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater beats to the rhythm of the world’s thinnest striking movement. This high-jewellery watch features a 37 mm-diameter white gold case made by the jewellers of the Roman Maison.

The Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater chimes a crystal-clear melody on demand by activating the dedicated slide in the form of a gem-set lucky charm. The voluptuously curved lugs are accentuated by brilliant-cut and baguette-cut diamonds. Demonstrating impeccable craftsmanship and elegance, its mosaic pattern dial is set with brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds.

As of now, the Divina Mosaica collection is also offering two time-only variants. Both models highlight the fan motif in a variety of colours, with a dial alternating between baguette-cut gems such as diamonds and green tsavorites or pink sapphires. The case, bezel and lugs mirror this aesthetic, also alternating between these two colour combinations.

Bvlgari Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon

During the GENEVA WATCH DAYS 2021 event, Bvlgari unveiled the Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon timepiece, which offers an original reading of time that is unique in the field of horological complications.

A metaphor inspired by the flight of the butterfly, the Papillon mechanism carries two independent retractable diamond-shaped hands positioned on a supporting disc. Each runs in turn along a 180-degree semi-circular minute track.

While the jumping hour appears in the window located at 12 o’clock, the minutes are indicated successively by each of the two hands. The first is positioned on the segment and thus signals the progression of the minutes, while the other remains in a retracted position throughout the path of the disc carrying them.

When the first hand reaches the 55th minute on the display segment, the other hand will gradually make a quarter turn to take a position parallel to the first on the 00-minute indication. The first hand will then move to the retracted position for the next 55 minutes.

The new Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon watch features a patented high-precision mechanism integrated into its mechanical heart with a 24-hour jumping hour display by means of a disc on a ceramic ball bearing via an aperture located at 12 o’clock. At the end of the 60 minutes indicated by one of the “butterfly” hands, the disc jumps to display the new time in the aperture.

The Papillon device consumes less energy than the traditional minutes display, which has a positive impact on the power reserve. This model is driven by a hand-wound mechanical Manufacture movement, Calibre BVL 332, entirely designed and assembled in the finest tradition by the master-watchmakers of the Manufacture Bulgari. It features a 60-hour power-reserve indication on the back of the rose gold Octo Roma case.

BVLGARI OCTO ROMA WORLDTIMER

Unveiled at Geneva Watch Days 2021, the BVLGARI Octo Roma WorldTimer is designed for globetrotters: it enables instant reading of the time in 24 cities, i.e. in 24 time zones.

This new world time automatic watch from the Octo Roma collection is driven by a new integrated movement comprising 261 components, developed and produced by the Manufacture in Le Sentier.

The layout of the dial information features a central display of the hours, minutes and seconds combined with a double rotating disc on the outer edge: one for the 24 reference cities and another with a 24-hour graduated scale. Together, they enable simple and instant reading of the time.

The functions are adjusted via the crown, first positioning the city of the chosen time zone at 12 o’clock, then setting the time until the hours and minutes hands indicate the exact time in the selected time zone – while taking care to ensure that the 24-hour indicator corresponds to the afore-mentioned chosen time zone. Once completed, these quick operations enable a reading of time in all time zones.

The elegantly understated BVLGARI watch with its instantly recognizable 41 mm case is available in satin-brushed and polished stainless steel, or in a black steel livery with sandblasted surfaces.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar Tantalum for Only Watch

For its first participation in Only Watch, Bvlgari has created the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar Tantalum.

This one-of-a-kind wristwatch reflects the characteristics of its predecessors. A Manufacture movement offering the most magical complication of all: the Perpetual Calendar, embodying mastery of all the calendar-related facets of time until February 2100. Launched in 2021, this seventh world record has so far been housed in a titanium case as well as a platinum case measuring 5.8mm thick.

For Only Watch 2021, however, Bvlgari has chosen one of the rarest metals endowed with special and unique properties: tantalum. Highly resistant to corrosion and totally biocompatible, it is used in medical engineering, the nuclear industry and electronics. Its density is 16.6 g/cm2, making it twice as heavy as steel. The material used by Bvlgari for the Only Watch is of absolute purity, verging on 100%.

While twice as hard as titanium, tantalum is still tough to machine, although bearing no resemblance to the eponymous ordeal! In other words, the machining of tantalum must take into account the programming of the machine, the instruments to be used as well as the rotation speed of the milling tools. By way of comparison, a tantalum case takes four times longer to produce than a gold case.

At its heart beats a 2.75 mm calibre testifying to miniaturisation genius. It drives the hour and minute hands as well as all the perpetual calendar functions: retrograde date display, retrograde day, month and leap-year indication. These are set by means of three correctors: one for the date at 2 o’clock, another for the month at 4 o’clock and a third for the day between 8 and 9 o’clock.

The Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar Tantalum for Only Watch features a deep blue dial echoing the colour of the metal. In a nod to the objective of this one-off creation, the graphic design of the month of November recalls the Only Watch abbreviation in a symbolic shade of colour.

Bvlgari Serpenti Misteriosi Cleopatra

Part of a new chapter in Bvlgari’s Colour Treasures series, this High-Jewellery, one-of-a-kind cuff watch showcases the Roman jewellery house’s expertise in gemstones, with a magnificently opulent and eye-catching new skin revealing a precious surprise: a diamond-set dial, hidden behind a faceted hexagonal see-through rubellite of over 5 carats.

With the arrival of the Serpenti Misteriosi Cleopatra, Bvlgari reaffirms its reputation as the Roman Jeweller of Time as it once again raises the bar in terms of both design and exquisite craftsmanship.

The snake is believed to have talismanic powers and is an emblem of wisdom, rebirth and vitality. The Serpenti Misteriosi Cleopatraisan abstract interpretation of the snake and though uncompromisingly contemporary, its irresistible style is reminiscent of the cuff bracelets worn by the powerful rulers of Ancient Egypt, and of Cleopatra herself.

While other Bvlgari snakes have coiled themselves around the wrist, the Serpenti Misteriosi Cleopatra is a flexible manchette or cuff watch with a diamond-set dial, elegantly concealed beneath a faceted rubellite.

The resolutely contemporary style of the watch draws on Bvlgari’s legacy of daring design and focuses on the snake’s scales, which are set with striking colour combinations of luminous, smooth-surfaced gemstones. The choice of a rainbow of nine vivid gemstones surrounded by snow-set diamonds offers a unique High-Jewellery watch stamped with Bvlgari’s inimitable confidence, executed with the highest standards of high-jewellery craftsmanship.

A glorious display of jewellery making prowess, realised by Bvlgari’s master goldsmiths and gem-setters, each of the three-dimensional scales is unique in shape and size to ensure the conical shaped cuff is beautifully fluid and comfortable to wear.

Bvlgari’s highly skilled jewellery designers worked hand in hand with the gemmology team to achieve the intense vibrancy of colour displayed by the nine different gemstones: pairs of faceted hexagonal amethysts and citrines, an aquamarine, rubellite, Chrome tourmaline, tanzanite and a peridot with a total weight of over 50 carats, accompanied by close to 4,000 snow-set diamonds.

Setting the gemstones alone took more than 470 hours of meticulous work, with each of the six-sided gems custom cut to fit the design, sacrificing up to two-thirds of their volume to achieve the perfect clarity, brilliance and saturation of colour. Meanwhile, the dial is entirely set with diamonds and covered with a facetted hexagonal transparent rubellite, originally measuring nearly 10 carats.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Tadao Ando Limited Edition

In association with Japanese architect Tadao Ando, Bvlgari presents the 160-piece Octo Finissimo Tadao Ando limited series.

Tadao Ando has forged his international reputation through the use of cement and glass combined with the creative use of light in his architectural projects. These three elements are the common thread running through his architectural work, in perpetual search for absolute purity, the essential. Tadao Ando’s work is now part of contemporary architectural history. Among his major achievements are the Church of Light in Osaka, the Museum of Modern Art in Fort Worth (Texas) and the 21_21 Design Sight in Tokyo.

After a first Octo Finissimo limited series jointly created by Bvlgari and Tadao Ando, in which the architect – impressed by Octo Finissimo pure shape – expressed time by means of a spiral engraved on the dial, a symbol of the black hole from where time is born, this second special edition picks up this theme dear to the Japanese construction specialist and based on the Mikazuki concept (三日月). While the theme of time remains central, this new model embodies a different approach.

Mikazuki (三日月) represents the crescent moon, which is the first stage of the next moon (新月) that will in due course become full (満月). This evolution symbolises the transitory nature of time, with the shadow of the earth partially masking the moon to reveal only a crescent. From the dawn of civilisation, the moon has always embodied time, acting as a clock and calendar for humanity and Nature.

Japanese culture expresses temporal contingencies with a specific character – the 月– which can be read as meaning both month and moon. Amid the spiral of the night sky, the crescent moon represents hope in the night, embodying a prosperous future.

The Tadao Ando limited edition takes a minimalist approach to the theme of time on the deep blue lacquered. The time spiral is born and uncoils from the base of the seconds hand, while the gold crescent moon is positioned at 5 o’clock.

In two essential graphic elements, Tadao Ando expresses his vision of time on a watch made from black ceramic and featuring a transparent caseback bearing the architect’s signature.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar

Bvlgari presents Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar, the slimmest perpetual calendar watch on the market, featuring a total thickness of just 5.80 mm and its automatic BVL 305 caliber of just 2.75 mm thick for a 40mm diameter.

After exploring ultra-miniaturisation in the fields of the automatic movement as well as the minute repeater, chronograph and tourbillon, Bvlgari presents Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar, the slimmest in the world. This new record is available in two variations: the “signature” titanium like all Bvlgari’s World Record, and a platinum version.

No less than 408 components interacting within the extremely limited space provided by the slender 5.80 mm case of the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar.

The development of the 2.75mm calibre required the movement design engineers of the Manufacture in Le Sentier to devise new solutions, such as the use of a micro-rotor and the optimal use of the space between the components without reducing their dimensions.

Testifying to true genius in the realm of miniaturisation, this development powers the hours and minutes hands along with all the perpetual calendar functions: retrograde-display date, day, month and retrograde-display leap years. They are adjusted by means of three correctors: one for the date at 2 pm, another for the month at 4 pm and a third for the day between 8 and 9 o’clock.

Two versions are available, in titanium or platinum. Their owner will be able to read the time without worrying about having to adjust the indications before February 2100.

Bvlgari Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon

Introduced at the LVMH Watch Week Dubai 2020, the new Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon is a small-sized women’s tourbillon watch. It was specially designed to fit inside the sleek dimensions of the serpent-head case of the latest incarnation of Bvlgari’s most iconic watch, Serpenti.

When it was presented last year, the Serpenti Seduttori reimagined the Serpenti cult watch. Now, Serpenti Seduttori continues its journey with the debut of new models, including the rare tourbillon movement for women, BVL150 Caliber. The movement of the new Seduttori represents the synthesis of Swiss knowledge and jewelry-making savoir-faire that only Bvlgari can execute. It is the smallest tourbillon on the market.

Designed to fit the Serpenti-shaped case, this small-sized shaped Haute Horlogerie movement is rhodium-plated, hand-decorated with Côtes de Genève, perlage and beveling, and features one sapphire bridge.

Unlike other watchmakers, Bvlgari adapts the technical considerations to suit the aesthetics, and thus chose a transparent sapphire backcase at the level of the tourbillon to highlight the movement and decoration work, a winding stem inclined of 6 degrees, located between 2h and 3h, and special pavé setting to achieve as thin a case as possible.

The new Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon models come in rose gold or white gold with diamond pavé and a leather strap or white gold with diamond pavé and a full diamond bracelet.

In addition to those styles, the brand adds five new Serpenti Seduttori editions. Their designs reinterpret the typical snake-skin smooth bracelet to debut one precious version with diamonds and one with alternating rose or white gold and steel.

Bvlgari presents its latest Octo Finissimo Steel watch model, featuring the thinnest automatic movement and a water resistance of 100 meters, made possible by increasing the case just slightly to 6.4mm and adding a screw-down crown.

Octo Finissimo has always been a pioneer in the world of watches. What sets it apart — in addition to its thinness — is its ultra-performance. It is a powerhouse of technical execution, with dimensions that defy everything that existed before.

Having won more than 50 awards since 2014, Octo redefined the men’s watches landscape, and set new parameters for contemporary, urban watches. Since its start, it has been about creating something unique, different from anything that came before.

With Octo, Bvlgari created a new shape for contemporary men’s watches, and in doing so, set new codes and a new trend for ultra-thin watches. This year, the brand offers the new Octo Finissimo Automatic Satin-Polished Steel model featuring polished lacquered black or blue dial.
