Bvlgari Sotirio Retrograde Date

Posted under Bvlgari

         A world ambassador of luxury and sophistication, Bvlgari has been producing watches that are considered masterpieces of design, and it has also extended its expertise to jewels, accessories, fragrances and skin care. Providing its customers with the best products especially created to meet the needs of its most sophisticated clientele has made of the Bvlgari brand one of the most acclaimed brands on the market. Bvlgari is not only a name with resonance in fashion and style, but also a famous watch manufacturing house that has been successfully telling the story of time by creating unique and highly progressive timepieces.

         Another newly entered member in the Bvlgari Sotirio Collection of watches is the new Sotirio Bvlgari Date Retrograde watch, which approaches a classic vintage style of an inimitable beauty. The new watch is sophisticated and classic, two main attributes that can’t go out of fashion and ever since its launch on the market the watch has proven to be a best-selling. Designed not to increase Bvlgari’ sales, but to please the Bvlgari customers, this new Sotirio Bvlgari Date Retrograde watch tries to recreate a distinctive design that would definitely remain amongst the classiest timepieces ever produced by the brand.

         Although Bvlgari has always put a high price on design and visual artistic qualities, the technical aspect when it comes to its timepieces has never been neglected. The new Sotirio Bvlgari Date Retrograde watch is equipped with a mechanical automatic movement defined as a B 89 Caliber, a mechanism highly complicated and manually assembled. The designers from Bvlgari have admitted that at the making of this watch participated 15 renowned craftsmen performing more than 150 operations to come up with what we see today in the Sotirio Bvlgari Date Retrograde watch’ s technical movement. The highly progressive movement generates a power reserve of 42 hours and is very reliable, providing its owner with a retrograde date function along with the traditional functions of time. All the technical complications are put together in perfect harmony and elegance, to provide a slim mechanism that would fit in the flat-shaped case. The mechanism is visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

         The case of this new Sotirio Bvlgari Date Retrograde watch is available in two versions, one made of white gold and the other of stainless steel. Both versions are proof of Bvlgaris dedication to sophisticated design, as extensive polishing, brushing and finishing techniques have been applied in order to create this distinctive look.

         The dial of the watch embodies the idea of elegant simplicity as it offers great legibility. Just as the case is available in two versions, so it’s the dial available on black and silver, treated with opalin. The dial recurs to a strap theme, imitating the sun’s rays which start from the retrograde date, located at the 6 o’clock position and are extended up to the margins of the dial. The only Roman numeral provided is located at the 12 o’clock position, accompanied by luminescent indexes at all hours.

         The new Sotirio Bvlgari Date Retrograde watch is available on a simple alligator strap, fitted with a buckle made of 18 k pink gold or steel.
