Bulgari x Ducati: the new collaboration

The new Bulgari Aluminium Chronograph Ducati Special Edition is the result of the encounter between two Italian icons of aesthetics and mechanics.


he Bulgari Aluminium Chronograph Ducati Special Edition is an encounter between two Italian icons of aesthetics and mechanics. The new model features three counters recessed into a deep red dial, the signature colour of the historic Bologna-based factories.

Black hour-markers and Bulgari’s characteristic hours/minutes hands are filled with luminescent material. The 10, 11 and 12 o’clock numerals are a nod to the dashboards of Ducati motorbikes. The central hand measures elapsed seconds, while the black counters at 9 o’clock and 6 o’clock display the chronograph minutes and hours with red hands. The small seconds hand is located at 3 o’clock.

The rubber bezel bearing the double BVLGARI BVLGARI logo is combined with the aluminium case, while the crown and chronograph pushers are made of titanium. The characteristically shaped supple strap enables all kinds of boldness.

Together, these elements materialise the sensation of an accessory able to withstand any test, including those of time, travel, acceleration and performance. Italian-style class and craftsmanship that is resolutely modern, neo-retro yet firmly geared to the future, proudly flaunting its inherent vibrant nature. The ultimate accessory for spirited individuals and special witness to great escapes.

Founded in 1926, since 1946 Ducati builds premium motorcycles characterized by performance engines, distinctive design, and innovative technology. Ducati motorcycles are the purest expression of refined engineering, unmistakable design and above all, a great passion. The essence of Italian style shows through the lines of each motorcycle, in which lightness, technology and high performance are at the service of all motorcyclists eager to live an incredible experience on two wheels. The highest standards of quality, constant innovation and attention to rider safety are just some of the qualities that identify Ducati motorcycles and guide the development of each new product.

Within two generations, the Bulgari Aluminium has asserted its unconventional approach. A vision born in 1998 from the aluminium and rubber combo giving shape to pure design and black & white graphics, defined by comfort and sportiness. Since 2020, an automatic mechanical movement has been installed in its case, adding a further touch of sophistication reinforcing the legend of a luxury watch known for its formal daring. The frequency of the BVL 130 mechanical calibre is 4 Hz, i.e. 28,800 vibrations per hour, enabling tenth-of-a-second precision.
