BVLGARI - luxury watches
The name of the brand, which spelling “BVLGARI” is due to the letters of the classical Latin alphabet, comes from the latinization of the surname of the company founder, Sotirios Voulgaris. In 1894 he established to Rome where, together with his partner Demetrio Kremos, opened his first boutique in via Sistina and the year after in Via Condotti 28.
The brand is able to create exclusive, elegant and complex models for him and for her. Among the women’s collections the most wanted and refined are: Serpenti, Lvcea, Divas’ Dream and Bvlgari Bvlgari. For men the collections of reference are Octo, Gerald Genta and the men’s version of Bvlgari Bvlgari.

The Bvlgari brand was born in Rome, the Eternal City, in 1884. Its creator is Sotirio Bulgari, a Greek silversmith who, thanks to his talent, was able to immediately give the brand the status of Italian excellence. Bvulgari is therefore the Latinization of the founder’s surname, so it is not surprising that the brand has always based its works on bold color combinations, volumes inspired by the balance of classicism and unmistakable motifs. All these characteristics underline the Roman characteristics of the Maison. Thanks to the inspiration drawn from the perfection of the models of the past, Bvulgari is able to impose new trends now recognized as contemporary icons.
Since its origins, Bvlgari has won the hearts of high jewelery lovers thanks to the use of more precious materials. The turning point came with the transition from silver to gold and, starting from the 1920s, with the use of platinum and diamonds, the prestigious materials par excellence.
The brand’s artistic ability reached its peak in the 1950s when it began experimenting with innovative color combinations thanks to the use of the most exclusive precious stones. The designs of the Maison’s creations have always been tied to the tradition of ancient Rome. Bvlgari thus asserts itself as the reference brand for those who want to enhance their social life with jewels with a unique and unmistakable style.
The watchmaking tradition of the brand fits right in the wake of this tradition made of excellence, luxury and the search for innovative solutions. The maison’s women’s timepieces offer truly unique designs, such as the Bvlgari Serpenti which, thanks to its tapered bracelet, has redefined the concept of a luxury watch, making it even more like a jewel.
Bvlgari also excels in the field of major technical innovations. The most important example is the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo and its extraordinary mechanical performance. In fact, for over seven years this magnificent watch, a symbol of balance and perfection, has established itself as the thinnest perpetual calendar watch on the market.
Lastly, Bvlgari has long boasted a collaboration of incomparable value. In 2000, the Maison acquired the Gérald Genta brand, founded by the world’s most famous luxury watch designer and who, since that day, has contributed to the creation of some of the brand’s most representative watches, including the Octo. The genius of Gérald Genta and the strong aesthetic sense that has always distinguished the brand have consecrated the Bvlgari brand to the Olympus of Haute Horlogerie.
