One does not need to look too far to find evidence of world records regarding Bulgari watches. They hold the record for the thinnest case and the thinnest tourbillon. A great example of a fine watch in their collection is the Octo Finissimo Automatic. This is the record-holder for the world’s slimmest automatic watch, world’s slimmest minute repeater and world’s thinnest tourbillon.

A signature Serpenti watch with wraparound strap can be purchased from $6,500. The beautifully feminine Lvcea watch for women is available in many styles for between $4,350 and $42,600. The ladies can also consider a purchase of a B.Zero1 watch in either black or white. Priced at $6,150 apiece, these watches are perfectly finished to complement the items in the B.Zero1 jewelry collection. This shows how the different watches can fit with other items in the Bulgari range of items.

Meanwhile, the men’s range of watches includes the stunning Bvlgari Bvlgari watch collection. These feature designs inspired by the coins used in ancient Rome – another connection to the past of the founder. The Solotempo range can be purchased from between $6,300 and $19,700, while the Bvlgari Bvlgari Carbon Gold range comes in four designs, each one priced at $2,900.

The Octo watch range is among the finest choices a man could make. Prices range between $6,500 and $23,400 for the standard range. The Octo Finissimo is priced at between $12,800 and $26,600, while the Octo Roma can be purchased from $5,950 to $18,300. The Bvlgari Octofinissimo Minute Repeater in Carbon is priced around $170’000 limited in 50 pieces but the original steel Octofinissimo sand-blasted can be bought at $12’500. A bargain some may think … but it shows how different a price can be depending on its complications, or material used on a same design. Any watch from this range would make a practical and stunning choice, and indeed would be difficult to resist.
