Meet Bvlgari Endurer Chronosprint Special Edition All Blacks Watch

May 04, 2011
Bulgari is pleased to unveil its new Endurer Chronosprint Special Edition All Blacks watch. The novelty honors the legendary New Zealand rugby team - the All Blacks.

The shiny anthracite dial of the new Bulgari watch is adorned with a traditional Maori tattoo pattern known as Koru. The pattern was created by a famous Maori artist. The Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand. The Maori stylized "tattoo" pattern is a symbol of life, growth and rebirth. It also reflects the origins of the Maori culture, symbolizing its continual regeneration. The Maori people have a tradition of giving the tattoo to warriors as a sign of manliness and a demonstration of birthright and status.

The hour-markers on the dial are enhanced with black Superluminova for perfect readability even in the dark.

The case-back of the watch has a semi-transparent smoked sapphire crystal window. It holds one more surprise it depicts the vintage All Blacks leaf logo dating back to 1905, a year that highlighted the history of both the All Blacks team and the Bulgari brand. In 1905, Bulgari opened its first boutique on Via Condotti in Rome, while the All Blacks "Originals" team started the tour of the northern hemisphere, having marked the beginning of the All Blacks legend.

The steel case measures 56mm in diameter and is 100-meter water-resistant. The surface of the case is provided with a Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) treatment, while the crown and pushers have a PVD-coating. The case is coupled with a black rubber strap fitted with steel inserts and an ardillon buckle, both provided with black DLC treatment.

The heart of the new Bulgari watch is an in-house mechanical automatic movement the DR1306 caliber with fine finishing. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the 27-jewel movement offers a 45-hour power reserve.

Besides hours, minutes and the date functions, the movement animates the chronograph function that is presented via a separate dial in the lower part of the dial, with two hands running across a double railtrack scale featuring 12-hour and 60-minute graduations. To reset the chronograph, it is necessary to push the pushbutton at 7.30.

The new Bvlgari Endurer Chronosprint Special Edition All Blacks watch is delivered in a box featuring the shape of a rugby ball.

The timepiece will be limited to 500 pieces and expected to be priced at 11 100 Euro.
