WATCHES AND WONDERS 2021
THE LATEST NOVELTIES
For the seventh consecutive year, Bvlgari has broken the ultra-thin and ultra-complicated watch world records with the Italian design and mechanical performance of Octo Finissimo. Redefining the limits of traditional fine watchmaking, Octo Finissimo reinterprets sophisticated classic horological complications in a resolutely contemporary manner, epitomizing Bvlgari’s Estetica della Meccanica, the art of in-depth innovation with regard to both form and substance.
SEVEN RECORDS IN SEVEN YEARS
Bvlgari presents its seventh world record, the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar, the slimmest perpetual calendar watch on the market, featuring a total thickness of just 5.80 mm. The development of the 2.75 mm BVL 305 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 408 components, without reducing their dimensions.
TIME MASTERED WITH EXTREME FINESSE
Available in two variations, the new Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar not only comes in the signature titanium interpretation, like all Bvlgari’s World Record, but also in a platinum version with alligator bracelet.
Symbolizing mankind’s relationship with time, this horological complication is imbued with a sense of magic and the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendars offers a talented reinterpretation by merging watchmaking excellence and Italian aesthetic sensitivity. Its owner will be able to read the time without worrying about having to adjust the indications before February 2100, a leap year.
TADAO ANDO INTERPRETS OCTO FINISSIMO
Expressing the concept of time through the purest symbolism, Bvlgari and the Japanese architect Tadao Ando have come together to create the second edition of the Octo Finissimo Tadao Ando limited series.
Focusing on the theme of time based on the Japanese “Mikazuki” concept - representing the crescent moon and the transitory nature of time – Tadao Ando introduces two essential graphic elements in Octo Finissimo’s dial: a special pattern evoking the time spiral and the gold crescent moon positioned at 5 o’ clock. Tadao Ando’s essential style meets Octo Finisissimo’s pure shape, in an unprecedented interpretation of the path of time.
Colourful, exuberant and ultra-feminine, the sparkling Serpenti Misteriosi Cleopatra, Divas’ Dream Divissima and Allegra timepieces bring the joy and brilliance of la Dolce Vita to the wrist.
THE HYPNOTIC SERPENTI MISTERIOSI CLEOPATRA
Hypnotic design meets Bvlgari’s intense passion for coloured gemstones. Sensually embracing the wrist, the Serpenti Misteriosi Cleopatra High Jewellery cuff watch reveals an eye-catching new skin presenting a precious surprise: a diamond-set dial, hidden behind a faceted hexagonal see-through rubellite of over 5 carats. An abstract, ultra-contemporary interpretation of the snake, this one-of-a-kind timepiece combines brilliant gemstones with unrivalled craftsmanship and a touch of majestic irreverence.
THE EPITOME OF ROMAN ELEGANCE
Feminine and flirtatious, whimsical and vivacious, the new Divissima watch is an invitation to embrace life with passion and live the moment. A smaller and easier to wear version of the iconic Divas’ Dream model, the watch arrives in two styles, both flaunting the collection’s iconic fan-shaped motif surrounding the dial with a sense of lightness, motion and precious brilliance.
THE BRILLIANCE OF LA DOLCE VITA
A dazzling expression of Bvlgari’s audacious approach to jewellery-watches, the redisegned Allegra timepiece captures the joyful spirit of la Dolce Vita. A vivacious mix of gemstones of different cuts and shapes are set to orbit around the dial, creating a gleaming halo that gently moves thanks to the expertly crafted gold setting. Extravagant and colourful, the watch is a true jewel enchanting with its distinctive design and inimitable gem combination.
