Bulgari praises its Roman legacy indeed with another mysterious watch. The way of life, craftsmanship, engineering and history of Rome has been a wellspring of motivation for the Maison’s planners for quite a long time, who are continually searching out present day approaches to rethink this exemplary heritage. Today, the superb  Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon gets a unique treatment, with the Monete edition.

Recombinant DNA

On the one hand, there is the vanguard plan and striking states of the Octo Finissimo. The particular case houses the very current BLV268 development, the most slender Tourbillon available, introduced in a building skeleton adaptation ( read our survey on this astonishing watch and development here ). Then again, the front of this mysterious watch is in all honesty an excessively uncommon, 4th century Roman coin. The front bears the picture of Emperor Constantine Augustus wearing a diadem while the back highlights a shrub branch encompassing the name CAESAR. Normally, the coin is straightforwardly associated with the Roman source of the Maison. More than that, the “Monete” is a long-standing practice at Bulgari, started by Nicola Bulgari during the 1960s.

The difference of the cutting edge plan with the antique coin recounts a solitary story. It is a compendium of the Bulgari style and aptitude. Like two of a kind on the off chance that I may say so. At 40mm in distance across, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Monete is created in 18k pink gold. The pivoted opening framework is initiated by pushing the crown. It is worn on a gator lash shut by a pink gold pin buckle.

This novel piece was introduced (along with a high-gems Monete pendant watch and other dazzling manifestations) on the event of the great gems and haute horlogerie introduction in Venice a week ago end.
