Italian jewelry house introduces Octo Retro Maserati GranSport & GranLusso watches
The blending of two iconic Italian brands. Since 2012, the two Italian brands Bulgari and Maserati have sealed a partnership for the creation of dedicated watches, inspired by the world of luxury and sports cars. In keeping with the highly present sports-car inspiration, the designers and watchmakers have created something other than a chronograph to make you feel that you’re not only driving a Maserati but also wearing one on the wrist.
The new Bulgari Octo Retro Maserati – available in two versions, GranSport & GranLusso – is even more clever than the two first collaboration pieces.
The GranSport version shows a textured black dial with silver applied indexes, numeral and hands, while a few blue accents enlighten the design. The other version, the GranLusso model, has a dark grey dial with sun-ray brushing and applied indexes, numerals and hands in pink gold, matching the case. The Maserati logo is also visible on the dial of the latter.
To power the Octo Retro Maserati GranSport & GranLusso, Bulgari uses its in-house calibre BVL 262, which is based on the classical BVL 191, used for instance in the Octo Roma or the Solotempo collection.
In order not to spoil the exclusivity of these pieces, they will be reserved for owners of a Maserati car, and will be available only in Bulgari Boutiques.
The GranSport is priced at $12,800 and the GranLusso is priced at $30,700
