Bulgari Creates Retrograde Date Watch

May 21, 2009
The Bulgari Sotirio collection, named after the brand’s founder, Sotirio Bvlgari, has been joined by another luxurious timepiece - Sotirio Bulgari Date Retrograde. The timepiece has smartly blended traditional and modern design elements to boast a very classy look.

The new timepiece accommodates a mechanical automatic movement - B 89 caliber fitted with a 150° retrograde date module developed and produced by the brand. Fifteen specialized craftsmen performed 165 different operations by hand in order to produce and assemble the new in-house manufacture module.

The 21-jewel movement, beating at 28, 800 vibrations per hour, gives an advantage of a 42-hour power reserve.

The craftsmen used eleven different finishings, with “soleil” and circular “cotes de Geneve” on the list, having come up with a perfect harmony with the unique design of the watch’s dial. The rotor demonstrates a circular “cotes de Geneve” finishing. All the components, including the smallest one, such as the finely polished screw heads, have been provided with refined treatments, including “perlage” and “diamantage.”

The movement, created according to the strictest technical standards, is characterized not only by aesthetic perfection but also great reliability.

The elegant Bulgari watch features a 42mm case crafted in 18K pink gold or steel. The original case construction with the signature lugs demonstrates highly refined alternation of polished and brushed surfaces. The case incorporates a monogrammed SB crown, anti-reflective sapphire crystal with convex profile and see-through case-back.

The dial of the timepiece is created in black or silver and finished with “azure”, “soleil” embossment and “opalin” treatment. It is completed with hand-applied Roman numerals and faceted indexes, as well as skeletonized hour and minute hands. The retrograde date counter has been positioned at 6 o’clock.

The Sotirio Bulgari Date Retrograde watch is presented on a stylish alligator leather strap fitted with a Bulgari 18K pink gold or steel ardillon buckle.
