While waiting for Baselworld, Bulgari stirs our curiosity by unveiling new interpretations for its core families: Octo, LVCEA and Serpenti.
In the watchmaking world, the Octo family distinguishes itself for clean and ultra-modern lines since its launch. A design principle of purity that becomes stronger thanks to the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton and the Octo Ultranero.
The Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is the newest interpretation of the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon, presented at its launch as the smallest watch of its kind.
A haute horlogerie timepiece that holds the world slimness record for a tourbillon movement with the Bulgari BVL 268 Finissimo calibre, in very well balanced proportions. This same slim lines (1,95mm thick) confer the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton a sense of daring with little exuberance, a sense of elegance and a solid presence on the wrist at the same time.
The Octo Ultranero, on its turn, stuns for its intense modernity.
In two variations, one all-black and one black with red skeletonized hands and red hour-markers, the Octo Ultranero stands strong and impactful as the ultimate urban iconic watch for men.
The very heart of the Octo family, though, will be represented by the new Octo Roma, which promise is “the quest for quintessence”.
With Octo Roma, Octo goes deep to its geometric essence, embodied by the octagonal shape of its case that goes back to its formal purity.
Reduced from 110 to 58 facets, Octo Roma’s case design combines the circle and the square in a modern and urban design, to deliver a timepiece intended for those looking for a “calmer”, “gentler” and “smoother” version of Bulgari Octo.
Minimalistic in design and highly contemporary in terms of presence on the wrist, with its 41mm diametre – not too big, not too small – Octo Roma represents today a capsule collection that is destined to stay within the Octo family, and to welcome more models and variations in the future.
The new LVCEA Moon Phases brings one of the most coveted and fascinating astronomical complications to the world of feminine watches.
A complication that brings a double challenge: the precision of the lunar cycle calculation and representation on one side, and the aesthetic visual balance on the other, having to provide an opening in the mother-of-pearl dial able to maintain a harmonic design in line with the timepiece’s overall image.
The color coordination is seamless, with the lunar cycle disc’s hue perfectly matching the alligator strap one. A precious timepiece, with the right dose of “complicated technology”, quite easy to wear in any circumstance.
New LVCEA Animations in steel and gold, in full steel and with new dial colours, from 28mm to 33mm, will surely please the most diverse personalities.
Black is always on trend, and this year Bulgari’s Serpenti Spiga plays it by presenting an intriguing all-black version with pink gold accents.
A highly contemporary take on one of Bulgari’s most emblematic models.
Also the Serpenti Tubogas continues to evolve, in a constant search for elegance and standing.
An extra-long model is what you need to express the ultimate fashion statement.
Last but not the least, High Jewellery watches play a relevant role in Bulgari’s novelties for 2017. The new Serpent Seduttori is a High Jewellery bangle watch able to bewitch and “seduce” at the very first gaze.
A note of cuteness: the last part of the tail rotates on the side to allow to wear the bangle on the wrist.
A 2017 rich of developments and novelties for the Rome-based Maison, stated by models expressing intense desire for beauty and modernity.
