Bulgari Aluminium Ducati Special Edition chronograph
In 2022, Aluminium is Bvlgari’s weapon of choice in the watch-case material innovation game. Cased in 40-mm, the bezel and strap are crafted out of black rubber while the crown and chronograph pushers are pure titanium. The case, water-resistant to 100-meters houses a mechanical automatic BVL 130 movement, beating inside at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, ensuring tenth-of-a-second accuracy.
The dial is nothing short of a real-life Ducati instrument gauge. All of this sportiness is inspired by Ducati rev counter graphics, be it the black background, white indexes, red sphere, and more. More so, the hour markers also take after a similar font. To the rear, the titanium case back boasts an anti-wear DLC treatment and boasts a Ducati logo and production number, marking the uniqueness of the limited edition piece.
“The collaboration with Bulgari is based on many elements that we have in common. First and foremost, the fact that it is another Italian brand for which design is much more than a corporate asset, it is a true raison d’être. The quest for lightness, obsessive attention to detail, the use of fine materials and the creation of a distinctive and immediately recognizable design are the values that have inspired us in this project.” said Andrea Ferraresi, Ducati Centro Stile Director.
For both brands, this collaboration is a celebration of Italian elegance and all things ‘Made in Italy’. It’s also an opportunity to offer passionate Ducatisti experiences and products outside of the motorcycling world that enhance beauty, technology and passion.
