BULGARI ’ S URBAN ART

BULGARI EARLIER THIS YEAR UNVEILED A SERIES OF BLACK DLC BVLGARI BVLGARI CITIES SPECIAL EDITION WATCHES DEDICATED TO NINE CITIES , each of which will be identified on the watch ’ s wide bezel alongside the Bvlgari logo .
This artistic flavoring of the 41mm fashion-casual , three-hand watch is just the newest interpretation of a design Bulgari debuted to much acclaim in 1977 , two years after its Bvlgari Roma digital watch became a fashion totem with its name on its case .
The new all-black Bvlgari Bvlgari Cities Special Edition will now display its Bvlgari logo on the bezel alongside the name of one of the nine cities ( Rome , Tokyo , Dubai , Paris , London , Ibiza , Milan , Mexico City and New York ), all of which Bulgari claims close ties , most hosting Bulgari boutiques , hotels or both .
And beyond the imprint of the city name on the watch ’ s bezel , each of the nine limited editions will also be sold with a set of twelve art prints created by one of nine young artists Bulgari invited to create a colorful rendering of their city . See the special Bulgari website for more information about the artists and their creations .
The blackened steel-case Bvlgari Bvlgari Cities Special Edition is powered by the in-house automatic BVL 191 caliber . The watch comes with two straps that can be used interchangeably : one brown calf leather strap and one black rubber strap . Price : $ 4,350 .
