Bertolucci Forza Diamonds Limited Edition Watch - Charismatic Design and Excellent Mechanics

Apr 28, 2011
The house of Bertolucci is excited to offer its new Forza Diamonds Limited Edition watch. A beautiful marriage of charismatic design and excellent mechanics, it has been featured in several versions.


The new Bertolucci Forza Diamonds Limited Edition watch, reference 1394.51.428WBD.108D7, employs a 45 mm stainless steel case. All black PVD-coated, it is highlighted by the sparkle of 107 diamonds & 197 black diamonds with a total weight of 1.42 carats. The winding crown at 3 o’clock is joined by a start/stop push-button at 2 o’clock and a reset push-piece at 4 o’clock. The water-resistance of the model is assured down to 50 meters.

The front part of the timepiece is assembled with a curved, glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The skeleton case-back, equipped with a convex sapphire crystal and secured with 4 screws, permits a glance into a Swiss made automatic chronograph movement - calibre Soprod 13 1/4 2025.

The mechanism breathes life into functions, presented on a black opalin dial. It features a black internal flange, marked with a tachymeter scale printed in white. The dial is equipped with 8 lume-applied trapezoid indexes. The central hours and minutes are indicated by skeletonized, polished and rhodium-plated “Dauphine” hands.

Set within the dial of the new Bertolucci watch are also two wave-patterned 30-minute and 60-second counters, located at 3 and 9 o’clock respectively. The sub-dials are fitted with “Glaive” red hands.

The 12-hour chronograph counter with a double “Dauphine”-“Glaive” black hand is found at 6 o’clock. The chronograph function is also presented through a central polished and rhodium-plated “Baton” hand with a “Glaive” head. All the hands are inlaid with Superluminova. The date indication is offered in a round aperture at 12 o’clock.

The model is finished off by a black genuine rubber strap with a wave pattern. It is finalized by a stainless steel triple folding clasp, all black PVD-coated.

The case of the new Bertolucci Forza Diamonds Limited Edition watch, reference 1354.51.428WBD.101D7, shares characteristics with the previous version. Ticking inside the model is a Swiss made automatic calibre Soprod 11½ 9094 movement.


The mechanism animates a set of functions, immediate and clear on a black opalin dial. It boasts a wave-patterned centre and a black internal flange with a minute track printed in white. The display reveals 11 trapezoid Superluminova-applied indexes. The central hours and minutes are shown by skeletonized, polished and rhodium-plated “Dauphine” hands. Taking care of seconds is a polished and rhodium-plated “Baton” hand with a “Glaive” head.

The date information is arranged in a sub-dial at 3 o’clock, equipped with a rhodium-plated scale and a polished and rhodium-plated leaf-shaped hand. It is counterbalanced by the counter, indicating the week day, which is read from a polished and rhodium plated “Dauphine” hand.

At 6 o’clock, the user can find a power reserve indicator with a red scale and leaf-shaped red hand. All the hands are applied with Superluminova.

The new Bertolucci watch is coupled with a black genuine rubber strap with a wave pattern. It is enhanced with a stainless steel triple folding clasp, all black PVD-coated.
