in 2019 Bvlgari celebrates the XNUMXth anniversary of the brand Gérald Genta, founded in 1969 by the homonymous designer and acquired by Bvlgari in 2000, presenting a special edition watch made in platinum with jumping and bi-retrograde hours.
The spirit of monsieur Gérald Genta and most of the company's highly skilled master watchmakers have been integrated into the state-of-the-art manufacturing of Bvlgari a The Trail in Switzerland. The launch of this watch, which sports the original Gérald Genta logo on the dial, pays homage to the role this legendary brand has played in the success of Bvlgari watchmaking over the past 18 years. The clock Gérald Genta 50° Anniversario features the famous solid and round case Sand, of 41mm, completed by a smooth and curved bezel in polished platinum. The jumping hours are displayed through a window positioned at 12 o'clock, the minutes are plotted on an arc that extends over the upper half of the blue lacquered dial, along which the minute hand travels and clicks to zero every sixty minutes.
A similar mechanism is used for the date window, arranged in a smaller arc at 6 o'clock. Powered by the caliber BVL 300 with a bi-directional self-winding movement boasting a 42-hour power reserve, the mechanism is visible through the scratch-resistant sapphire caseback. The edition of the 50 ° Gerald Genta's anniversary is presented on an integrated blue alligator strap secured with a platinum folding clasp priced at approx. 55.000 EUR.
