Why the Bulgari Carbon Gold timepiece is a true connoisseur’s choice
Grit and glamour
Sumptuous luxury is Bulgari, a house renowned for decadence and extravagance so it comes as no surprise that the Italian maison is closing off summer with the launch of a lavish timepiece the likes of the Carbon Gold. Boldly playing up its metallic DNA for a contemporary chromatic appeal made with unexpected alloy combinations, this fresh interpretation of the original watch from 1993 is a distinct exception that speaks to only the most self-confident individuals.
Uniquely crafted to reflect one's definitive style, the Carbon Gold comes in three dial variants of lustrous black, luminous brown and on-trend blue contrasted by a pink gold indexes and hands tipped in Superluminova for perfect legibility. And lying beneath this sleek 40mm watch face is the calibre B77, a mechanical self-winding movement that powers precise timekeeping and the date function, in addition to a 30 metre-deep water-resistance and a 42-hour battery reserve.
Echoing the maison's passion and inspiration, the Carbon Gold affects a piece of Bulgari's history by appropriating the woven hemp strap — debuted in 1975 upon an exclusive digital dial watch offered to their VIP clientele — now constructed in supple calfskin leather. Richly detailed in every aspect, the Bulgari Carbon Gold is a palpable luxe horology presence that will resonate with modern aficionados.
The Bulgari Carbon Gold is available at Bulgari boutiques.
