The nine charismatic cities on which the limited-edition watches are themed are Paris, Rome, London, Dubai, Tokyo, Ibiza, Milano, Mexico City, and New York City.
These timepieces are a throwback to the original Bvlgari timepieces. Having made its debut in 1977, for the Maison’s hundred best clients, the Bvlgari watch’s original design was entrenched in the brand’s Roman history relating a tale made up of architecture and Italian art.
Each city specific watch comes with a set of twelve unique art prints created by one of nine talented young artists, from each city. The timepiece has “Bvlgari” and the name of the city mentioned on the dial to signify the specific city. The buyer will receive prints of each of the 12 limited-edition artworks along with the watch. Contemporary and compelling, these artworks tell a story all their own.
The charismatic timepieces come with a mechanical manufacture movement, automatic winding, the BVL 191 calibre, with a 42-hour power reserve. A 41 mm stainless steel case treated with black Diamond Like Carbon, has “BVLGARI” and the city of choice engraved on the bezel. A transparent case back, an 18 kt rose gold crown and a black lacquered grained dial make for a masculine and edgy timepiece. With rose gold indexes and the date aperture at 3 o’clock, the watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters. Dynamic and bold, the watch comes with dual interchangeable straps, brown calf leather for a more contemporary look and the black rubber for the sporty and ready for fun look. The special edition watches come with a black grained leather travel pouch.
For the man on the move, the watch is also an ideal Father’s Day gift.
