The new aluminum chronograph with the Ducati Special Edition, Bulgari combines its sporty aluminum-case chronograph design with the color and typography of the Ducati racing-infused motorbike. The apparent use of materials such as titanium (case back, crown and pusher) and rubber (bezel) also matches the Ducati’s high-performance figure in this colorful replica of the original Bulgarian aluminum watch, first seen in 1998.
Bulgarian Aluminum Chronograph Ducati Special Edition.
Ducati with its premier co-design, Bulgaria’s new 40mm, 1,000-piece limited edition has three bold subdial sets set in a dial with the same deep red color used in historic Bologna-based factories. And more specifically for Ducati, the numbers 10, 11 and 12 on the dial echo the same layout found on the dashboards of famous Italian motorbikes.
As Bulgari’s most sporty design, the Bvlgari aluminum series has long been one of the most successful collections of Italian-Swiss watch makers and jewelers, with its light case and bold Bvlgari Bvlgari-brand black (and sometimes blue) rubber bezel.
Bulgari originally matched the Mechatronic-Quartz movement with its aluminum series but updated the collection in 2020. Here, Bulgari fits the latest in the series with its automatic BVL 130 caliber.
Bulgaria offers the watch with its own aluminum and rubber presentation box with the logo of both Italian brands. Price: 5,000.
