This special timepiece is limited to just 1,000 pieces worldwide at US$5,000 each.
Famed Italian motorcycle institution Ducati have teamed up for the first time with LVMH-owned Italian luxury label Bulgari earlier this month. The result of which led to the birth of this special timepiece christened as the Bulgari Aluminum Ducati Special Edition.
Both brands share plenty of common traits through their respective creations, namely in the values of lightness, technology, design and, above all else, passion. This is clearly evident in this sport-style chronograph too, especially in the way it is styled and built.
The motorsport-inspired watch presents itself in a 40mm aluminium case with a matte black fixed bezel that features a ‘Bulgari’ logo engraving. The chronograph dial layout is decked exclusively in Ducati’s signature red – or Rosso, if you will – hue with black sub-dials for added contrast.
Though there’s no Desmodromic L-twin at the heart of this timepiece, it still packs a functional automatic movement. Specifically, it’s an in-house Bulgari B130 automatic-winding mechanical movement that holds an impressive 42-hour power reserve.
Elsewhere, this timepiece also features a black-covered backcase that highlights the new partnership between Bulgari and Ducati through commemorative engravings of each brand’s logo. Things then finish off with a comfortable black rubber strap and matching metal pin buckle.
Limited to just 1,000 pieces worldwide, each Bulgari Aluminum Ducati Special Edition timepiece will reportedly command no less than US$5,000. That’s approximately RM21,945 by current exchange rates, which is roughly the same amount for a downpayment towards a brand-new Ducati these days.
In terms of availability, this largely varies based on market and region, but you’re best bet is perhaps to visit the nearest flagship Bulgari boutique and enquire…
