In the midst of the pandemic, the two-day Geneva Watch Days at the end of August turned out to be the only multi-brand event to be held in Switzerland this year, with 17 participating brands. Among the big names was Bulgari, whose new collection reinforces the brand’s image of being unconventional and overturning the status quo. Among the most remarkable pieces were the new Aluminum collection and the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton Automatic. The other big announcement from Bulgari is that from September 1 all its watches will be guaranteed for three years and five years for the High-End, Octo Finissimo and Gerald Genta collections.
This 2020 version revives the fire started in 1998 by the first generation aluminum models. The 40mm aluminum case features a titanium caseback and rubber bezel. The dials are in black and gray. Instead of the previous generation quartz mechatronic movement, the new version comes with the caliber B77 self-winding movement in the regular watch and caliber B130 in the chronograph. Both with a 42-hour power reserve.
OCTO FINISSIMO TOURBILLON CHRONOGRAPH SKELETON AUTOMATIC
For the sixth time in six years, Bulgari sets a new record with the Octo Finissimo line. Its 42mm sandblasted titanium case measures 7.40mm thick. The BVL 388, the self-winding skeleton movement, single-press chronograph and tourbillon, is ultra-thin at 3.5mm, and offers a 52-hour power reserve.
GERALD GENTA ARENA BI-RETRO SPORT
This new tribute to the legendary Swiss watchmaker who died in 2011, features jumping hours seen through a window at 12 o’clock and a minute hand that crosses an arc, spanning the upper half of the anthracite black dial, and resets to zero. every 60 minutes. Likewise for the date, which is set in a smaller arc at 6 o’clock. The 43 mm case is in brushed titanium and is powered by the BVL 300 caliber with a bidirectional self-winding movement, benefiting from a 42-hour power reserve.
THE SERPENTI SEDUTTORI TOURBILLON
Echoing the Octo Finissimo world records on the men’s side, this ladies’ watch comes in the iconic Serpenti case, specially designed to fit the smallest tourbillon (3.65mm thick) on the market. The 34mm case is in rose gold or white gold with a diamond pavé and a leather strap, or in white gold with a diamond pavé and a diamond bracelet. Five new Serpenti Seduttori editions complete the 2020 collection. Their creations reinterpret the typical smooth snakeskin bracelet to debut a precious version with diamonds and one with alternating rose or white gold and steel.
