Bulgari is unveiling its latest jewelry and watchmaking interpretations at the fourth edition of Geneva Watch Days, from August 29 to September 2, 2023. These creations celebrate the extraordinary duality of nature as materials, colors and shapes take form in six new expressions that embody the Maison’s unique heritage with rare and age-old savoir-faire.
Bulgari rewrites the rule book with the Octo Finissimo CarbonGold Automatic and the Octo Finissimo CarbonGold Perpetual Calendar. These two milestones in Bulgari’s quest for finesse are crafted in anthracite carbon, highlighted by luxurious touches of gold. Bulgari first presented this norm-defying blend 1993, a striking innovation made possible by its unique ability to envision materials from the perspective of a “watchmaking jeweler”. These rare objects redefine the rules of modern horology.
An absolute icon, the Serpenti Misteriosi unfurls its irresistible twists in new incarnations. In the first, the serpent is in sparkling gold paved with diamonds, while the second offers the temptation of rose gold with scales of black lacquer and sumptuously set diamonds. The quintessence of Italian glamour and Bulgari’s mastery of jewelry and watchmaking, the Serpenti Misteriosi pieces are inspired by the rich creative heritage of the “Roman Jeweler of Time”.
The new Monete Catene secret watches are inspired by the innovative Gemme Nummarie concept introduced by Nicola Bulgari in the mid 60s, epitomizing the pinnacle of Bulgari’s craftsmanship and artistry. Precious and rare antique coins – powerful symbols of history – elevate the exquisite and sculptural watch cases. Fashioned from gold and set with diamonds, these high jewelry timepieces flow around the wrist thanks to supple chain bracelets reminiscent of 1940s curb chains, known as gourmettes. The high jewelry iteration of the Monete Catene Dual Time cuff is inspired by another chapter of Bulgari history, reprising the lines of a watch created in the 1970s. At the heart of these precious creations is a discreetly pulsating treasure of mechanical miniaturization, the Bulgari Piccolissimo movement.
