You will hardly find a person who has never heard of Bvlgari. This Italian company that produces several luxury product lines, including jewelry, fine watches, and fragrances, is known all over the world. Moreover, while Bvlgari jewelry and accessories are mainly designed for ladies, branded watches are popular with both genders. Made in the heart of the Swiss “watch valley,” with the use of only the best materials, they have proven to be not only the epitome of pure luxury, but also highly sophisticated timepieces equipped with innovative movements. It is no wonder that four of the latest Bvlgari fine watches have been preselected for the 2017 edition of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve (GPHG). Enjoy the list of finalists!
1. Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Ref. 102713
The Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic competing in the Men’s category is claimed to be the slimmest self-winding mechanical luxury watch to date, which is the third world record for the Italian watchmaker. Enclosed in a titanium case, it is only 5.15mm thick, though it does not prevent its movement to provide an impressive 60-hour power reserve.
2. Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton Ref. 102719
Combining extreme technical sophistication with elegant design, the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is perhaps one of the best Bvlgari luxury watches for men available today. Featuring a platinum case, it is distinguished by the world’s thinnest hand-winding movement with flying tourbillon, which is seen through the beautifully crafted skeleton dial. This model is competing in the Tourbillon and Escapement category.
3. Bvlgari Octo Roma Ref. 102705
The Bvlgari Octo Roma is a refined piece of urban fine watches, designed to underline the wearer’s modern style. Enclosed in a stainless steel case with a transparent sapphire back, it features a beautiful dark brown lacquered dial complemented by an alligator leather strap of the matching color. This automatic Bvlgari model is competing in the “Petite Aiguille” category.
4. Bvlgari Serpenti Misteriosi High Jewellery Ref. 102784
The Bvlgari Serpenti Misteriosi High Jewellery is an 18k white gold bangle luxury watch with a “secret” dial, distinguished by a double-headed snake design that pays tribute to the Maison’s iconic serpent symbol. Completely encrusted with diamonds and emeralds, this one-of-a-kind elite quartz watch is competing in the prestigious Jewellery category.
These four Bvlgary fine watches are definitely worthy finalists in the 2017 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve. The winners of the so-called “Oscars of the Watchmaking Industry” will be announced on November 8th.
