Bulgari and Maserati have partnered since their first collaboration back in 2012 with their Bulgari Octo Maserati Chronograph. Now, to mark their fifth anniversary, the two Italian luxury brands reunite for another collaborative watches — the Octo Retro Maserati GranSport and GranLusso. Both watches were presented at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
For the GranSport version, the watch features a black DLC-treated carbon case alongside a black dial that consists of counters, hour markers and numerals. The hands, in the meantime, are highlighted by silver-toned and blue indicators.
Moving on is the classier GranLusso version, which boasts an elegant-looking 18k pink gold case with black dial and matching pink gold indicators.
Both watches come with retrograde minutes, jumping-hour displays and a 41 mm case that housed a mechanical Retro BVL 262 calibre, which is developed and produced in-house. The watches also feature a Côtes de Genève self-winding movement, a 42-hour power reserve and oscillates at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Finally, the Octo Retro Maserati GranSport and GranLusso come in a black perforated strap with blue topstitching and a brown perforated strap with white topstitching respectively. Both watches are available exclusively at Bulgari boutiques.
