In the past, I was impressed by Bvlgari’s gorgeous jewellery as bold, unique and eclectic, but now facing the Bvlgari watch series, I can’t help but make people better and better. Shocked. For a brand that has to design its own shell and core chain, whether it is a requirement for details, a requirement for craftsmanship, or even a subversion of style, Bvlgari has fully integrated its own DNA, each subtle The design never relaxes. One word to describe Bulgari’s watchmaking is very suitable, and that is ‘obsessive-compulsive disorder’. This kind of ‘obsessive-compulsive disorder’ that seeks perfection, seeks breakthrough, and is different is exactly the vitality of the brand and the reason why the world is crowned in its crown.
To understand a professional watchmaking process, it is necessary to understand how rich and powerful a brand’s hardware is. 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. Below, let us go into the design of Bulgari together, mainly to understand the case and bracelet of Bulgari.
Case, the most representative creation:
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.
One: octagonal case
Here, we have to mention GeraldCharlesGenta, who is the most prominent Swiss watch designer in contemporary times. His design talent has earned him the reputation of Picasso, and he has a talent for clock creation, creating a series of highly representative Sexual watches, from Patek Philippe’s Nautilus, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak to IWC, eventually established independent brands named after themselves. In 1999, Bulgari acquired the Zunda brand and officially incorporated it into its own product line in 2010, which also injected fresh blood into Bulgari.
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 stunning architectural aesthetic style is derived from Master Zunda.
Part 2: BVLGARIBVLGARI case
Zunda’s watch for Bulgari was inspired by ancient Roman coins, with inscriptions chanting its power and prestige surrounding the portrait of the emperor on the coin. These small, round masterpieces were invented in ancient Greece in the 6th century BC and successfully integrated function with delicate aesthetic elements. Zunda applied this design element to the bezel of the watch. The two ‘Bulgari’ carvings it contains are the source of the watch’s name.
Bulgari’s classic representative work-the BVLGARIBVLGARI series of watches, was born in 1977, the official release of the BVLGARIBVLGARI series of watches, Bvlgari is truly entered the watch market. The cylindrical shape of the case was also influenced by ancient Rome, especially the Roman temple temple columns. 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.
Bracelet, pioneering masterpiece:
For ordinary watches, the bracelet seems to be just an icing on the cake. Everyone’s attention will focus on the more prominent features or dials. Taking a simple detail, many watches have different metal links, such as the usual three-piece, four-piece, and Rolex’s extensible bracelet. However, for the special link of Bvlgari, It wants to make every detail unique, as is the bracelet. Different bracelets, showing different styles, are really memorable.
One: Serpentine Link:
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.
No. 2: V-shaped chain link
The footsteps of time symbolize new life, hope, and eternity, and time also brings new design inspiration to Bulgari. The new LVCEA gives us a completely new interpretation from the case, dial, crown, and bracelet. It has a very strong brand characteristic. Even if it can’t recognize its series at a glance, it can be sure that it comes from Bvlgari.
The design inspiration of a watch is abstract, and when it becomes a work in reality, it will feel like it is so real. Light inspiration and classic shapes are created in every detail of the watch. The design of LVCEA is a tribute to the ancient sundial of the timepiece, symbolizing the power of capturing light (‘luce’ in Italian means ‘light’). The case of LVCEA is shiny and round, which implies the passage of time; the round shape of the case also symbolizes unity, highlighting the dial decorated with Roman numerals and hands, which looks like a sundial.
The unique V-shaped chain link design conceals the V in the LVCEA name, and is also a light inspiration from the Serpenti series. This shape is extremely architectural tension, so we have also constructed different shapes on the case, crown and crown. Trapezoidal shape. The bracelet itself contains more than 100 independent parts. It consists of 5 tapered links and 2 adjustable links. In fact, the links connected to the case are also inclined. At the same time, for the first time, the bracelet does not use a spring leaf inside, but simply links each link, which is completely different from the Serpenti series.
The charm of the watch is that any seemingly small change condenses the huge changes behind it, and constantly sets new challenges for the brand, from design to sketch, from production to assembly, interlocking.
Summary: A heart-warming watch, first of all, must catch your eyeballs at the first time, assured of your peace of mind; secondly, if it is a watch that can’t be played or appreciated, its beauty will not fade with time. , On the contrary, it will become more and more intense. In the end, the watch must meet the wearer. Maybe it belongs to a certain brand. However, after you have it, it belongs only to you and becomes an eternal acquaintance and companion in your life.
