Let’s go for a new Pitch Watch
In August of last year, on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Bulgari Aluminum collection, the Italian watch brand announced the inclusion of the first GMT watch, which if you want to know more you can read here, and today, just over a year later, the brand reveals a new variant of the Bulgari Aluminum GMT, as a special and limited edition.
The new Bulgari pays homage to the legendary Amerigo Vespucci ship through its three colours, black, white and yellow.
The latest addition to the Bulgari Aluminum family differs from the previous edition only by its colours, in which the previous blue tones are replaced by black and the past red accents are now in yellow.
And starting from the outside, we have the same 40mm aluminium case, black rubber bezel engraved around it with the brand name, DLC-coated titanium crown and case back, crown guards, sapphire crystal, 100 meters water resistance and hinged rubber strap matching the dial with aluminium links and pin buckle.
On the black dial, GMT inner ring bezel bicolour, in yellow tone from 18 to 3 o’clock represents nighttime and in black tone from 3 to 18 o’clock represents daytime. Stick-shaped hour indexes, numerals and rhodium-plated hands are all filled with white lume, a GMT hand with a yellow arrow tip and a date window at 3 o’clock.
Inside, just like the former edition, it is equipped with an automatic movement Caliber BVL 192, based on the Sellita SW 330, which operates at 28,800 Vph and offers up to 42 hours of power reserve.
As mentioned above, this is a limited edition, with only 1,000 units, which can be purchased in the brand’s official boutiques or authorized retailers for a price of €3,950.
If a year ago we were already very satisfied with the previous version in shades of blue, now we can say that this new version pleases us much more, the bicolour yellow and black bezel seems to match perfectly with so many other details in the same tones, and is an excellent bet for the upcoming autumn-winter season.
Our only reservation is the same as shown in the previous edition, the price, it is not the fact that this edition is increased by € 450, which is easily justifiable because it is a limited edition, but rather the fact that the “base” price continues to appear us unsuitable compared to other market proposals.
