BVLGARI Bvlgari watches currently have more than 350 professional staff, these professional staff is the unique backup resources of Bulgari. They work hard at four different locations in the Jurassic Mountains to produce a variety of watch accessories. Several production bases have the most sophisticated traditions and the most sophisticated technology: the production of complex function tables (Grandecomplication) and ultra-thin Finissimo movements, The production and assembly of the Solotempo calibre Le Santier; the production of gold and stainless steel cases and straps by Sénio Legier; all high-end hands are completed in La Chaux-de-Fonds, and the assembly and final quality control are in Production hub-Neuchâtel completed. Let’s start our journey of extraordinary watchmaking with Bulgari.

  Dial and case, the most representative creations:

  The most intuitive part of a watch is the dial and case. The production of top dials requires craftsmanship based on rich experience. The watchmaking plant in Sénélegier is responsible for the manufacture of dials, cases and straps. Here, a series of highly professional technologies have not only realized reorganization, but also gradually achieved innocence in practice. This base also adheres to strict production standards in order to produce Bulgari’s most unique and unique watch. No matter whether it is controlled by a computer or a purely manual method, each work has its own characteristics.

  The angular and angular case always attracts the eye at first glance. The case of the Octo watch has very typical characteristics in the brand. It is neither round nor square, but perfects two geometric shapes. Combined to create the most recognizable octagonal design, constructing the omnipresent and geometrical aesthetics of the round place, the octagonal structure of the watch and the round bezel complement each other, showing boldness in the pure classic art tradition at the same time And delicate style. This amazing architectural aesthetic style is derived from Master Zunda.

  For another watch, we have to mention the classic representative work of Bulgari, the BVLGARIBVLGARI series of watches, born in 1977, the official release of the BVLGARIBVLGARI series of watches, Bvlgari is truly entered the watch market. In the new ‘BVLGARI’ logo on the bezel, ‘V’ replaces the ‘U’ in the classic Roman inscription, which is not only more simple and profound, but also a direct declaration of the brand’s image and potential value. The source of this inspiration is ancient Roman coins with inscriptions extolling their power and prestige around the portrait of the emperor. These small, round masterpieces were invented in ancient Greece in the 6th century BC and successfully integrated function with delicate aesthetic elements.

  Bracelet, unconventional, pioneering:

  For ordinary watches, the bracelet seems to be just an ‘out of flower’ embellishment, and everyone’s attention will focus on more prominent places. However, the special link to Bulgari is like a circling snake, which highlights the domineering and wildness of urban women, which is really unforgettable. Presumably written here, you must have guessed the Serpenti series watch to be discussed below.

  For the first time in 2015, the bracelet of the new Serpenti series watch abandoned the traditional internal spring, which makes the watch more flexible and flexible, which can meet the daily collocation needs and highlight the infinite design creativity of Bulgari. The opening and closing of the bracelet is equipped with double pressure buttons to ensure safety while maintaining elegance. The length of the bracelet can be adjusted at will to bring the ultimate comfort to the wearer. In addition, the side and back of each bracelet and curved case of each Serpenti series watch are exquisitely hollowed out. The light can be penetrated to the maximum extent, which makes the gems set on the watch bloom more brightly. Guanghua.

  This Serpenti series rose gold watch comes from the new product in 2015. If the style can be fixed, you don’t need to worry about the fixed design, because the brand will make greater innovation and design based on the original every time. Let the original style release more vitality. The highlight of this watch is that the surface of the red lacquer watch is specially treated: the translucent lacquer has been manually colored and air-dried several times, and finally condenses into fine crystals, making its bright colors fuller and more eye-catching. The hand-made metal stripe pattern makes the unique lacquer look gorgeous. It takes two full days to paint the lacquered surface of a bracelet, and then it is manually sanded and polished by skilled craftsmen.

  Movement, keep improving:

  When a professional watchmaker evaluates a watch, he can always evaluate the quality of the movement through phenomena. A brand with the ability to make independent watches should have the ability to make its own movement. For Bulgari, the production and creation of the movement is even more important. Whether it is an ultra-thin manual-winding movement or an automatic-winding movement, the strict requirements always run through the entire production process to achieve the highest standards of production requirements. The integrated production of machines has professional processes and division of labor. Manual design, grinding, and assembly, with rich experience and technology.

  Complicated functions, aesthetics and technology:

  Today’s clock making has already exceeded the scope of recording time. More designs and functions have been added to the design of watches. The smaller the smaller the more difficult it is to design, but the watch must be lean to save and constantly challenge. This is also the toxicity of the watch. Among the various complicated functions such as chronograph, moon phase, perpetual calendar, tourbillon, and three questions, the most impressive is the three questions tourbillon watch, which can fully reflect the perfect combination of aesthetics and technology.

  The Bulgari CarillonTourbillon tourbillon watch with three hammers can emit three tones, which is also one of the most delicate and unusual timekeeping device structures. The gong is carefully cast through multiple processes. Before the secondary calcination, they were manually bent and shaped, and then hardened at 900 ° C. After that, they were carefully cleaned and polished, and then refired in the furnace at a slightly lower temperature.

  With such an exquisite dial design and such complicated tourbillon technology, the style of the entire watch is not achieved overnight, but is supported by professional design and exquisite craftsmanship. The watch’s DR3300 manual winding mechanical movement is composed of 327 precision parts that subtly surround the huge tourbillon frame. Use a dual barrel to provide mechanical power to the watch: one not only guarantees the smooth operation of the timekeeping device, but also automatically winds up when the latter operates; the other ensures a power reserve of a staggering 75 hours. Under Bulgari’s design, complex functions are interpreted so vividly.

  Intelligence opens up new areas:

  With the launch of the Apple iWatch, many people have teased that Apple’s move will affect the status of traditional watchmaking. In the face of discussions, the traditional watchmaking industry has given the best response in its own way. Seeing Bulgari’s ‘treasury on your wrist’, why do you not worship the traditional watchmaking craftsmanship? This self-winding mechanical watch combines all the luxury features in one, and is connected to its wearer with a unique ‘e-passport’, which provides comprehensive protection of its private data.

  NFC technology has been widely used in the fields of unlocking access control, opening doors, automatic calling, etc., but who would have thought that NFC technology would be used in the design of watches?

  The so-called design is to let the wings of imagination fly and let him fly. Imagination has always been the source of Bulgari’s creation, so the brand can show us more miracles. The DiagonoMagnesium series watch is equipped with an encryption chip and a stealth antenna. It uses NFC (near field communication) technology to transmit the watch’s digital certificate to the mobile phone. The mobile phone needs to download and install the Bulgari ‘treasury’ application (available for iOS and Android systems). ); And the invisible antenna is placed in two layers of insulating material, thereby avoiding interference of information transmission. The watch simply needs to be close to a smartphone with a built-in NFC chip to activate the Treasury application. It remains to be seen how such intelligent and high-tech changes will subvert and update the lives of modern people in the future.
