An introduction to Bulgari's new Aluminium GMT

Crossing time zones, getting away from it all...

B

ulgari Aluminium was the first luxury watch made of aluminium and topped by a rubber bezel in the late 1990s. It has maintained its original spirit: urban, disruptive, and imbued with a kind of ‘cool attitude’. In this respect, Bulgari Aluminium GMT is a worthy heir to the modern and graphic original model.

It has retained the essential attributes – aluminium case, blue bezel and rubber strap – forming the basis of its identity. It has however been given an additional, contemporary function conveying the dreams naturally arising from a taste for travel: namely crossing the 24 time zones. A nod to the model that was flaunted at the time of its 1998 launch on the livery of an Alitalia Boeing 747 jumbo jet regularly criss-crossing the continents.

Easy to use and perfectly readable, the Bulgari Aluminium GMT serves to read both home time and local time. The former is conventionally indicated via hours and minutes hands pointing to the markings on the inner dial zone; while the latter is displayed by a red-tipped hand positioned on the 24-hour outer scale of the dial. It is divided into two different coloured zones of 12 hours each. The circular track serves to adjust and distinguish between day and night according to the time zone where the wearer finds himself. All settings are simple to perform using the crown.
