Beauty in braids
Adding some stylistic sizzle to summer, the new Bulgari Carbon Gold timepiece celebrates the season with a casual-chic aesthetic that pairs the namesake precious metal with carbon and calfskin. Within the carbon resin–coated steel case sits a dial decked in a choice of black, brown, or ever-popular blue, accented by pink-gold-plated hour markers. Luminescent dots tip each indices for clear indication of date, hours, minutes, and seconds – even in low-light situations.
To leave a lasting impression, the manufacture’s name is etched around the bezel and, on the side of the case, the numerals “1884" (the year Bulgari was founded) are engraved on an 18k pink-gold plate – material that also comprises the crown. And refreshing a classic, the strap is of the same distinctive weave pattern as the Bulgari Roma watch from 1975, a model of which only 100 examples were made. Rather than using hemp as before, however, braided calfskin leather now completes the look.
