Launched in 1998, the first Bulgari Aluminium timepiece featured a combination of aluminium and rubber. In 2020, it added the mechanical self-winding movement that further secured the Bulgari Aluminium’s unmistakable identity. With a universal appeal that transcends gender, age, and trends, the watch is again being revisited today – in new colourful and daring ways.
This spring, light and colour take centre stage with three new creations to illustrate the extent to which Bulgari Aluminium is singularly in tune with our times, perfect company in life’s strong moments and most beautiful emotions:
Bulgari’s iconic Aluminium Chronograph is now available in an all-black version, with a new chronograph movement. The classic black-and-white version has been updated with the same calibre for a seamless transition. Both models now sport a 41mm case (a slight change compared to the previous 40mm case). In addition to its recent Red Dot Best of the Best 2023 award, it’s worth noting that the Bulgari Aluminum Chronograph also received the GPHG Iconic Watch Prize in 2020.
The model features a sleek aluminium case with a titanium caseback, treated with DLC for added durability and scratch resistance. The black rubber bezel carrying the double logo gives a sportier touch to this model, which is water-resistant up to 100m. The black or white dial features black counters, while the hands and indexes are luminescent, providing a clear and legible display, even in low light. The mechanical self-winding movement B381, with a chronograph and date functions, ensures precision timekeeping.
The crown and chronograph pushers in DLC-coated titanium add an extra layer of durability and style to the watch’s design. Undoubtedly one of the most iconic features of the Bulgari Aluminium is its black rubber bracelet, which perfectly blends style and comfort with its innovative design and meticulous construction. The aluminium-link bracelet pays further tribute to Bulgari’s commitment to quality and innovation, and the aluminium pin buckle ensures a secure and comfortable fit for the wearer.
The Capri Edition is a limited series that celebrates the beauty and allure of the fabled Italian island, with a dial in a rich, Mediterranean shade of blue reminiscent of the mythical Italian summer, evoking the vibrant hues of Capri’s glittering waters and sky. A personalised caseback is engraved with the Faraglioni of Capri, the three towering rock formations that have become an iconic emblem of the island’s natural beauty.
The two versions, each in a limited edition of 1000 pieces, feature a shaded blue dial with luminescent hands and indexes in a 40mm aluminium case. The personalised caseback with the engraving depicting Capri’s Faraglioni adds a touch of exclusivity and elegance to the watch. Water resistant to 100 metres, it is perfect for those who love to explore both land and sea.
The Bulgari Aluminium Capri Chronograph, powered by the reliable mechanical self-winding calibre B130, features the start/stop and reset pushers on either side of the crown. The Capri Solotempo model offers accurate timekeeping with a calibre B77 mechanical automatic movement, which also features a date display. The rubber bracelet with aluminium links, and aluminium pin buckle allow for a comfortable fit on the wrist.
The Match Point Edition coming out this year is a special nod to the community. The white dial is accented with green luminescent hands and indexes with a yellow luminescent dot. The personalised caseback features a tennis ball engraving, adding a unique touch to this limited edition of only 800 pieces. The packaging of this sporty timepiece is as unconventional as the watch itself: utilizing the same material and colour, it evokes a tennis ball. The yellow is the same as on the dots above the hour markers and on the seconds hand.
The Match Point Edition is a limited series designed for tennis enthusiasts and all lovers of a sporty lifestyle, in green, with a left-hand crown, a Velcro® strap for maximum comfort, and a tennis ball engraving on the caseback. The mechanical movement with automatic winding and date, the B77 calibre, ensures precise timekeeping along with a comfortable 42-hour power reserve.
