Many might be quicker to associate Bvlgari with jewelry than watches, but its technical achievements in developing some of the thinnest mechanical timepieces on the market, clearly prove otherwise. But, today we’re here to focus on the much simpler Bvlgari Bvlgari model, also known as “BB”. This iconic design first debuted back in 1977 and has returned with a pair of new diamond-like carbon treated versions, during the Geneva Watch Days.These models are available in either a 33mm (quartz) or 41mm (mechanical movement) version, both made out of stainless-steel with a black DLC treatment all over, except on the crown.Mounted to the case is the iconic double “Bvlgari Bvlgari” logo engraved bezel, which is a signature detail of this model line, inspired by antique Roman coins.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. Except for the smaller sized option which is enclosed over a quartz movement. They both come equipped with a knurled setting-crown that includes a black ceramic insert. But, they differ in design from each other as you can see below the 41 option has a more standard look,compared to the 33 version with a much fancier design and a ceramic cabochon insert that protrudes further out from the case.All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance can reach up to 50 meters (164 feet), while the smaller option can only reach 30 meters (98 feet).Time is exhibited on a finely grained black-lacquered dial with applied rectangular-shaped hour index makers and the Arabic numerals: 6 and 12. A simple yet highly effective layout that has been a mainstay for this model since its inception.The central sword-shaped hour/minute hands are made of the same steel, as seen on the Arabic numerals, hour index markers, and crown.Lastly these models differ because the 41mm option includes a seconds hand, plus a black date window with white numerals, while the 33mm keeps it less complicated.
The “Bvlgari Bvlgari” (Ref#: 103540) is powered by the self-winding mechanical movement, caliber BVL191 with 26 jewels, 191 components and 28,800 Vph. It is a ‘solotempo’ automatic movement with central seconds and date, decorated with Geneva stripes, which includes a ball bearings for the bi-directional winding rotor. Power reserve can last up to 42 hours, when fully wound.While the “Bvlgari Bvlgari” lady watch (Ref#: 103557) is powered by the B043 quartz movement. Mounted on both watches is a black bracelet with the same diamond-like carbon treatment, secured to the wrist by a folding clasp.
