In 1975 Bvlgari launched the first Bvlgari Bvlgari watch as a gift to 100 of their VIP jewelry clients. This was is a quartz model whose digital display with grey liquid crystals contrasts sharply with the gold refinement and of a strap uniting leather and plaiting with polished fraying. This latest variation of the Carbon Gold is the return of that woven strap. Also, new Bulgari Bulgari Carbon Gold watches play on a variety of colour combinations through a range of three dials: a black version in keeping with contemporary Italian design; a brown interpretation radiating a discreetly luminous warmth; and a third glowing in a firmly on-trend shade of blue.
In all three instances, the pink gold hour-markers are a subtle reminder of the jewellery expertise cultivated by the Maison, and each is tipped by a Superluminova dot serving to ensure perfect readability of the hours, minutes and seconds indications in any lighting.
They are all equipped with Calibre B77, a mechanical self-winding movement with a date function and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Its 42-hour power reserve is ideal for an active lifestyle, as indeed is the 30-metre guaranteed water resistance of this model. The slim 3.60 mm-thick movement fits smoothly into the 40 mm-diameter case, an ideal size for a watch asserting a discreet yet pleasingly palpable presence.
The latest edition of the Bvlgari Bvgari Carbon Gold can be yours at a price of $2,800.
