From Rome to the World

From Rome to the World

October 2021

DRIVEN BY A NEW INTEGRATED MOVEMENT, THE OCTO ROMA WORLDTIMER RENEWS THE GENRE OF A CLASSIC FUNCTION AND PROPELS IT INTO THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD.

The WorldTimer is both fundamental and eminently useful in an age when travelling from one end of the planet to the other can be done as easily and quickly as shopping! Attired in the Octo Roma case, it renews the genre enabling it to project itself into the contemporary world by playing with temporal boundaries.

The Octo Roma WorldTimer is designed for globetrotters: it enables instant reading of the time in 24 cities. From Rome to Samoa, no place on the planet can escape it when it comes to knowing the local time in relation to the time at home.

This new version of the world time function joining the Octo Roma collection is driven by a new integrated movement comprising 261 components, developed and produced by the Manufacture in Le Sentier. The layout of the dial information features a central display of the hours, minutes and seconds combined with a double rotating disc on the outer edge: one for the 24 reference cities and another with a 24-hour graduated scale.

Together, they enable simple and instant reading of the time.

The Octo Roma WorldTimer aims to travel the world in the Bulgari spirit. This means for example choosing to represent the Caribbean not by Bermuda but instead St. Barts: a super-cool destination embodying the heart of luxury in the region. It also involves highlighting certain cities where Bulgari has a hotel or plans to open one.

The elegantly understated model with its instantly recognisable 41 mm case has established itself within a few short years as one of the most emblematic and timeless models of 21st century Haute Horlogerie.

Available in satin-brushed and polished stainless steel, or in a black steel livery with sandblasted surfaces, the 58-faceted model is ready to take on the globe.

BVLGARI timepieces are available for purchase at our 101 Collins Street, and Crown Melbourne boutiques. Or, discover online.
