Bulgari launches skeleton version of the record-breaking Octo Finissimo Tourbillon

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

In 2014, Bulgari stole the show at Baselworld by introducing the record-breaking Octo Finissimo Tourbillon. The watch had set a new record for the world’s thinnest tourbillon with the movement measuring just 1.95 mm and a case thickness of a mere 5 mm. But in that timepiece, the watchmaker’s witchcraft of the ultra-thin tourbillon was hidden behind the dial. However, Bulgari has now introduced the skeletonized interpretation of this extraordinary watch.

The Bulgari BVL268 Finissimo caliber packs its 253 parts into a 32.60mm-wide and 1.95mm-thick wafer-thin layer and still holds the world slimness record. But adding to its complexity is its skeletonized structure and Bulgari did a little more than just remove the dial of the watch. A PVD coating has been applied on the bridges and main plate to increase the contrast and highlight the moving components inside the watch without disturbing the structural integrity of the movement. Water-resistant to 30 meters, the 40 mm case is crafted from platinum and enhanced by a platinum crown with ceramic insert. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is priced at €140,000 or about $124,000.

Bulgari B.zero1 Design Legend By Zaha Hadid

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


The iconic B.zero1’s unmistakable symmetrical circular lines and the two intersecting circles bearing the BVLGARI logo has been one of the house’s icons ever since its launch almost twenty years ago. Bearing a number of architectural elements inspired by Rome’s famous Coliseum, there’s no better way to give the B.zero1 an update better than the design legend herself – the late, great, Zaha Hadid.

Zaha Hadid, famous for her deconstructivism in modern architecture, evolved in her works over time. Starting with angular aggressive forms like the Vitra Fire Station, Hadid progressed toward works that epitomise fluidity and movement such as the Dongaemun Design Plaza (DDP) and the Heydar Aliyev Centre.

The B.zero1, birthed in 1999, has also evolved over the years – and with this latest interpretation, the brand is exploring a certain beauty in deconstruction. Through Zaha Hadid’s expert vision of fluidity in deconstruction, together with Bulgari’s drive for innovation and craftsmanship, this collaboration marks a new chapter for the timeless B.zero1.C

Carefully deconstructing the central band of the B.zero1, its structure and uniformity is transformed into undulating gold waves. Held together with the iconic intersecting circles engraved with the BVLGARI logo, the birth of the Design Legend was born.


Available in Singapore from April 2017 in various styles, B.zero1 Design Legend will come in pink or white gold, with pink gold available in 3 band or 4 band styles. There will also be one with 3 bands in white gold, plus a pink gold pendant that rounds up the collection nicely. No word yet on their exact retail prices so do stay tuned for more updates.

Monique Péan Wooly Mammoth Bangles: Ebony and Ivory

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Monique Péan Wooly Mammoth Bangles

With their trendy color scheme (or lack of color scheme, really), Monique Péan’s eco-friendly bangles are hotter than ever. Fossilized wooly mammoth, one of her favorite materials to work with, provides the perfect, pure blank canvas for the designer’s dark designs, all of which are hand-carved. I would even buy these plain, though – the quality is that good! My favorite bracelet is the dotted – it has a fun pattern that matures into pure sophistication on the bangle. The graphic stripes  and V-patterned ones would look good on your arm, too (so maybe indulge in a couple??), but the most intricate and intriguing choice is the scrimshaw . Pair any of these with some gold bracelets or other Monique pieces, and you’ve got a sustainably stylish look. Available at Barneys New York.
