This novelty has a 41 mm steel case, water resistant to 100 meters. The upper bezel is satin-brushed while its octagonal lower bezel is polished. The octagonal flange reinforces the impact created by this design, while the dial is part of an octagonal geometry.
As a reminder, the octagonal shape is part of the history of Italian architecture, visible at the heart of monuments such as the Pantheon or the work of Leonardo da Vinci; it is in particular the eight-sided geometry, characteristic of the vaults of the Basilica of Maxentius, erected in the 4th century on one of the most important architectural sites in Rome.
It is also an aesthetic signature that is illustrated at the heart of Bvlgari’s historic jewelry creations, such as in the Monete collection, further strengthening the link that unites the brand to its Roman heritage.
