Bulgari Tourbillon Saphir Ultranero

No matter how many technically advanced or beautiful timepieces Bulgari brings to Baselworld, they always get pushed into background by the ever popular Serpenti collection.

ce, Saphir Ultranero is a fully skeletonized watch housed in a drum-shaped large titanium and sapphire crystal made case that measures 53mm. The case treated with a coat of jet-black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) offer an eye-catching contrasting look because of the use of bright green Super-LumiNova filled microtubes.

Th Super-Luminova filled tubes acts as hour markers – something we are already familiar with because of HYT watches. The skeletonized hour and minute hands also comes coated with Super-Luminova. The titanium and sapphire on the case are held together by DLC-coated screws, while giving the watch a more unique look it also freed up inner space for the movement. It is powered by a GG 8000 mechanical hand-wound tourbillion movement that offer 70 hours of power reserve. Few of movement’s parts such as the barrel drum and the tourbillon carriage bridge are skeletonized.
