Italian watch and fashion brand Bulgari has collaborated with Italian car maker Maserati on special edition watches since 2012. Now, five years later, two brands have revisited the concept yet again through their Bulgari Octo Maserati Mono-Retro watches, called GranLusso and GranSport.
Both watches feature a stylish dial inspired by the rev counter from a Maserati. The GranSport is the one in black DLC coated steel, and the GranLusso is 18k pink gold. Aimed at Maserati owners, these Octo Maserati Mono-Retro watches show off a chic 41 mm case, with the impressive in-house BVL 262 automatic movement keeping everything on track.

Packing 42 hours of power reserve and decorated with Geneva stripes, polished bevels, and snailing, this complex movement is visible through a tinted sapphire crystal display caseback.
The Bulgari Octo Maserati Mono-Retro watches are simpler, though, with only retrograde minutes to the left of the dial and a digital jumping hour display via a disc and window above the Maserati trident logo.
The Bulgari Octo Maserati Mono-Retro watches will be up for sale only in Bulgari boutiques, with the GranSport set to cost $12,800 and available only for the first 30 buyers of the new Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio.
On the other hand, the Bulgari Octo Maserati Mono-Retro GranLusso will set you back $30,700, and even though it’s not a requirement, you’d better have a Maserati to match.
