Bulgari has always been known to be a jewelry brand and over the years we have seen its experience and expertise of that branch out to watchmaking. The Carbon Gold series which has been around since 1993, is a good example of how Bulgari’s jewelry expertise enables it to innovate constantly in the watchmaking field in terms of design and materials. The Carbon Gold features a high-tech carbon-resin proprietary composite allied with gold, that most precious of metals, combine to give us a very current and trendy twist to the watch.
The 1993 launch of the Carbon Gold series was an important milestone for Bulgari as it marks the start for all manner of research on alloys and metals and unexpected combinations. This year’s release of the Carbon Gold plays out a little different from past years as Bulgari offers a wide selection of colour combinations to choose from: a black version in keeping with contemporary Italian design; a brown interpretation radiating a discreetly luminous warmth; and a third glowing in a firmly on-trend shade of blue.
In all three colour options, the beautifully-crafted pink gold hour-markers are a subtle reminder of the jewellery expertise of Bulgari, and each is tipped by a Superluminova dot to ensure greater legibility of the dial in any lighting condition.
