Bvlgari Aluminum GMT
Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
Think Rolex’s GMT Master is the only option when it comes to a utilitarian, dual-time watch? Think again!
Bulgari, the famed Roman jeweler, is also a fantastic watchmaker whose Octo Finissimo line has broken eight world records in as many years. These watches are fine examples of haute horlogerie — with price tags to match — but Bulgari also makes significantly more affordable, well built everyday timepieces.
Take the Aluminum GMT, for example: Dating to the 2020s, it’s housed in a 40mm lightweight aluminum case with a sapphire crystal, a signed, navy-colored rubber bezel, a luminous navy blue dial with a matching aluminum handset and a red-tipped GMT hand, plus an inner, dual-color 24-hour rehaut and a date window at 3 o’clock. Powered by the automatic B192 caliber with 50 hours of power reserve, it comes paired to a signed, integrated articulating navy blue rubber strap with a signed aluminum pin buckle.
In excellent condition, this Aluminum GMT ships with some of its ephemera and is water resistant to 100m, making it a perfect companion to summery adventures.
This piece is an excellent exercise on a new take on of classic, romantic complication - and were into it.
The case is in outstanding condition overall showing only faint signs of wear from gentle use. Luminous navy blue dial is in as-new condition with matching handset. Unsigned crown.
Following its acquisition of the Gérald Genta and Daniel Roth brands from Singapore’s The Hour Glass in the early 2000s, the maison began a process of vertical integration that has allowed it to produce watches on par with the best from historical Swiss firms, the likes of which have stunned the world in the form of the Octo Finissimo collection. Indeed, having broken eight world records for thinness in as many years, the 2020s have proven Bvlgari to be a watchmaker unparalleled in modern history.
In 2011, Bvlgari was purchased by the LVMH Group, ensuring an allocation of resources and limelight that have placed the brand at the center of the watch buying public’s attention. From simple, time-only pieces to some of the world’s most complicated watches — and the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, full stop — Bvlgari’s watchmaking division continues to develop some of the most stunning timepieces in the world, each imbued with a certain Roman charm and sophistication.
