This isn’t the first time that Bulgari and Maserati joined hands in order to create something exquisite, and just like the Octo Quadri-Retro Chronograph that they released in 2012, the Bulgari Octo Maserati Timepiece is a masterpiece both technically and aesthetically. The watch is meant to honor Maserati’s centenary year and Bulgari’s 130th birthday, and it is being manufactured as a limited edition of 1,914 units.
Its power comes from a Swiss automatic Velocissimo caliber BVL 328 that flaunts a power reserve of 50 hours, operates at a frequency of 36,000 vph and comprises 45 jewels. The exquisite polished and lacquered dial comes in white and champlevé blue, while the strap was made out of Maserati blue alligator leather complemented by a steel folding clasp.
Stainless steel was used for the 41.5mm case, which boasts a screw-lock crown and an AR-coated sapphire crystal. For extra reliability, the Bulgari Octo Maserati watch is water resistant up to a depth of 328 feet.
