All-sapphire (or largely sapphire), skeletonized, tourbillon watches may be both high-end and niche, but competition in this esoteric area does exist. However the Bulgari Octo Tourbillon Sapphire offers a number of odd design elements which distinguish it from such offerings. The green-on-black palette is eye catching into a zombie-chic type of way, and the sapphire ring through the middle of this circumstance is a unique touch. The crown performance is equally unusual and novel, and the movement’s bridges behaving as hour signs help ensure the watch stays legible.This timepiece will not appeal to everyone, but in a limited run of 20 bits, it doesn’t need to. The Bulgari Octo Tourbillon Sapphire is priced at $65,000 for its DLC-coated titanium version, and $78,000 for the pink golden version.Italian watch and style brand Bulgari has collaborated with Italian automobile maker Maserati on particular edition watches because 2012. The most recent fruits of that collaboration were released in the Frankfurt motor show, and they are a pair of Bulgari Octo Maserati Mono-Retro watches which despite being individually named are basically different substance variations of an Octo using a dial layout based on a Maserati automobile’s rev counter. The GranSport is the one in black DLC coated steel, and also the GranLusso is 18k pink stone. Aimed at Maserati owners, they’re naturally going to be “exclusive” in price and availability.The Bulgari Octo has more or less become the brand’s flagship collection as well as the platform to the Maserati editions. Just earlier this season we took a hands-on look at the Bulgari Octo Maserati Chronograph watch here, however, the newest Bulgari Octo Maserati Mono-Retro watches share more in common with the first collaboration view, the Bulgari Octo Maserati (hands-on from 2012) because that watch was all about retrograde indicators. The Bulgari Octo Maserati Mono-Retro watches are simpler, however, with just retrograde minutes to the left of the dial along with a digital skipping hour display by means of a disk and window above the Maserati trident emblem.
