Meet Bulgari Collection Daniel Roth Tourbillon Chrono Rattrapante Watch

Apr 26, 2010
At Baselworld 2010, watch connoisseurs were pleased to witness the appearance of a new Bulgari Daniel Roth technically and aesthetically sophisticated timepiece - the Tourbillon Chrono Rattrapante.

The heart of the new Bulgari Daniel Roth watch is a mechanical hand-wound movement - Calibre DR 8300. The rose gold double-ellipse case accommodates the complicated mechanism beating at the rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour and providing a 48-hour power reserve.

The split-second chronograph function provided by the movement is shown by two seconds hands in the center: the traditional chronograph hand and the superimposed split-second hand. When you switch on the chronograph push-button, the two hands start moving at once - they are ideally synchronized.

When you stop and reset the chronograph, the two hands are brought to a halt and repositioned. You can also separately activate the split-second function. As soon as you start the central seconds hand and activate the additional co-axial push-button on the crown, you stop the split-second hand but the chronograph hand is still running.

When you press the split-second push-button for the second time, the split-second hand is back over the chronograph hand, and the hands continue moving, one on top of the other. When you press the co-axial push button for the third time, the split-second hand stops again.

The split-second chronograph function allows to measure short time intervals when a few competitors are taking part in an event, for example a track race. You can stop the split-second hand when each competitor arrives, this way facilitating observation, before the temporarily-stopped hand compensates for the time it has been motionless.

The new sophisticated Bulgari watch also boasts the Tourbillon complication. The Tourbillon regulator is presented on the pure white upper part of the refined split-level dial of the watch.

As for the black gold treated surface of the lower dial part, it is vertically satin-brushed and features the time indications: hours and minutes are shown on a small sub-dial positioned at 7 oclock, 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 oclock, and power-reserve at 5 oclock. The chronograph hand is gold-plated, while the split-second hand is blued.

The 18K rose gold case of the watch measures 46 mm in diameter. It is constructed with a see-through sapphire crystal case-back and is 30-meter water-resistant.
The Bulgari Collection Daniel Roth Tourbillon Chrono Rattrapante watch embraces the wrist on an alligator leather strap equipped with a triple-blade folding clasp, also in 18K rose gold.
