With FIFA World Cup in full flow in Brazil, luxury brands are tripping each other to offer special editions to celebrate the event and its host. Bulgari, the LVMH owned Italian jewelry and watchmaker is the latest to release luxury World Cup memorabilia. Their contribution is a Brazil-centric version of the Octo Bi-Retro, with dial dressed in Brazilian flag colors of blue, yellow and green. The Octo Bi-Retro Brazil is available in a limited edition of just 50 pieces.
The Octo Bi-Retro Brazil dial features three different colors that are methodically hand-crafted using complex champlevé technique. Functions include jumping hours located at 12 o’clock, retrograde minutes and a date sub dial at 6 o’clock. Its in-house made mechanical self-winding Caliber GG7722 movement comes with a 45-hour power reserve and water resistance up to 330 ft.
Housed in an octagonal 43 mm brushed and polished stainless case with ceramic and rhodium inserts, the sporty Octo Bi-Retro Brazil comes fitted with a rubber strap secured by a steel folding clasp. Pricing on request.
