Bulgari has announced the ‘Amerigo Vespucci’ Special Edition watch


Watches add understated luxury to one’s look and vouching that you’re covered on this one is Bulgari. The marquee has recently introduced the “Amerigo Vespucci” special edition watch that pays tribute to the namesake Italian Navy ship and its heritage in a luxe avatar.


The “Aluminum GMT” model features a glowing arrow-shaped hand for time-reading and two peculiar 12-hour zones in black and yellow for distinguishing between day and night. The color palette is inspired by the iconic vessel and can be seen in the rest of its elements as well.


Taking after the Vespucci’s gilded black railings, the watch’s hand independently adjusts when the titanium crown is moved to its second position. Further, the Super-LumiNova®-coated hour-markers and white hands intend to evoke memories of starry nights guiding sailors.


As per the watch’s release, its titanium case back bears the signature “Nave Scuola Amerigo Vespucci” and its engraved motto, while the articulated rubber strap, a characteristic element of the Bulgari Aluminum models, meets the dual requirement of robustness and flexibility while enabling all kinds of audacity in this watch intended for natural-born explorers.


Commenting on it, a statement from the brand read, “Like a challenge to the commands of time, the Bulgari Aluminum GMT sets a new course with this Amerigo Vespucci Special Edition, sailing in the wake of the great explorers.”


It further added, “It is a celebration of the discoveries that revolutionized the era, as well as of perseverance and team spirit. Whether on gentle waves, rough seas or dry land, it renews the intensity of a unique experience and extends an invitation to savor the voluptuous joys of travel, while looking confidently to the future.”


Only 1,000 units of the special edition “Amerigo Vespucci” watch will be made available by Bulgari. Could you be one of the lucky few to get it?
