Classic, refreshed

BVLGARI BVLGARI was launched in 1975. It was named “BVLGARI Roma” when it first appeared. It has continued to evolve since then, but it has always retained its unique and charming brilliance. The unique design on the watch was created by the legendary watchmaker Gérald Genta, and was produced using the unique metallurgical technology conceived by Gianni Bulgari, a member of the BVLGARI family. The brand name is eye-catchingly presented in the form of a double circle of “BVLGARI BVLGARI” on the inlaid gold plate. The bezel brings out the charm of traditional ancient coins and Italian art architecture.

Following the re-interpretation of the BVLGARI BVLGARI series with bracelets in 2019, this year, the brand has allowed this classic that is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary to reproduce its original charm, launching two styles of gold with black dial and rose gold with silver-white dial. Each has a neutral size of 38mm and a refined size of 26mm. These are the only four styles of the series currently available on the brand’s official website with alligator leather straps.

The style with gold material and black dial has the most classic charm, echoing the original style launched in 1975, and also forming a strong visual contrast, further highlighting the gold-plated Arabic numerals and elongated columnar hour markers at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, this low-key The minimalist design also adds eye-catching charm to the engraved letters on the bezel.

Subverting tradition, gold and new colors appear simultaneously

Octo Finissimo
The last time I saw BVLGARI launching a gold model in Octo Finissimo seems to have been during Geneva Watch Days in 2022. That watch was a commemorative model launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first BVLGARI store in the United States. It was limited to 50 pieces in the United States. By 2024, which happens to be the tenth year since the launch of the Octo Finissimo sub-watch series in 2014, the Octo Finissimo Automatic automatic watch finally launched a new non-limited model that embraces gold. Although the watch uses precious metals with unique classic and timeless charm, it is equipped with the brand’s signature blue sunray dial. The gold and blue color scheme is very avant-garde and eye-catching. This is also the only Octo Finissimo gold watch currently visible on the brand’s official website. luxury watch brands

In addition, BVLGARI has specially launched the Octo Finissimo Automatic with a stainless steel case and a Tuscan Copper pink-brown salmon dial this time, and it has been polished into a charming sunray dial. This pink-brown tone is extremely rare in the Octo series, and the brand’s watch design director Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani even explained that the inspiration for this “Tuscan Copper” tone does not come from the retro aesthetics admired by collectors, but from Italian art. The origin is the artistic concept of the 16th century – Mannerist art. Jacopo da Pontormo, one of the representatives of the Mannerist art trend, is famous for his vivid and almost metallic painting tones. The dial design of this watch also echoes his delicate style and color.

Both new watches have a diameter of 40mm and a thickness of only 6.4mm. They are also waterproof to 100 meters. They are all equipped with the brand’s self-made BVL 138 movement. The movement is only 2.23mm thick and is cleverly decorated with exquisite details such as hand-modified polished chamfers, circular brush patterns and Geneva ripples.

A glorious 10th anniversary

Since its launch in 2014, the Lvcea series has always drawn design elements from the brand’s two important areas – fine watchmaking and fine jewelry. The name is also taken from the Italian “Luce” and the Latin “Lux”, which means “light.” ”, highlighting the radiant design aesthetics of the series. In this year’s 10th anniversary of the launch of the series, BVLGARI uses stainless steel and rose gold in its exterior designs such as bezels and V-shaped links to reproduce dazzling brilliance and modern style. The new watch is equipped with a mother-of-pearl intarsio (Intarsio) dial that has been used in this series since 2021, with richer colors. In addition, a malachite fine-piece dial style made of fine inlays has been introduced, and the technology has been upgraded.

The new watch is available in two sizes: 33mm and 28mm. The former is equipped with a self-winding movement and is 9.16mm thick. It has hours, minutes and seconds display and provides a 42-hour power reserve. The latter is equipped with a quartz movement and is 7.72mm thick. With hour and minute display. In addition to combining the characteristic dial, the new model also has a diamond-set style. 56 diamonds weighing a total of about 1.3 carats are used to decorate the case and dial hour markers. There is also a diamond decorated on the V-shaped crown, which is matched with the inlaid diamond on the crown itself. Cabochon-cut synthetic sapphire with sparkling brilliance.

One of this year’s new watches features a green malachite marquetry dial, a design inspired by the craze for colored gemstones in the 1960s. The brand’s craftsmen carefully select each piece of mineral to ensure vivid colors and fine texture, and use small fragments of this mineral to form a unique texture on the dial. corum cheap watches
