Bulgari introduces their most complex watch to date.
What do you get when you combine 923 parts of movement, 365 days and 20 different functions? You get the Bulgari Grande Sonnerie Perpetual Calendar – a fantastically complex and advanced watch presented at Baselworld 2011. This watch will chime 433,580 notes each year in the course of 35,040 activations – enough to earn its title as one of the 10 most complicated watches ever presented.
The Grande Sonnerie collection was introduced over the years by Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Bulgari, and signifies one thing – the finest mastery in watchmaking. The craftsmanship, dedication and expertise required to make a Grande Sonnerie makes these watches real pieces of art. To add to the already complex mechanisms of audible musical indications, this particular model pushes the boundaries even more by adding a perpetual calendar to the list of complications.
With a tourbillion carriage and mechanism housed in an 18-carat pink gold case, athracite and snailed treatments combined with black lacquer and openworking details, there’s no doubt that this watch will earn you some serious credibility and envious stares. The price to pay? A heart-stopping HKD$7,405,000.
