Today’s Haute Time Watch of the Day is The Octo Bi-Retro Brazil by Bulgari. With the 2014 World Cup in full swing in Brazil, we thought it was the perfect time to show off the National colors of Brazil.
The Limited Edition Octo Bi-Retro Brazil timepiece features a 43mm steel case with a sapphire crystal and case back. Powered by a Bulgari manufacture Caliber GG 7722 movement, the Octo Bi-Retro Brazil features a jumping hour at 12 o’clock, a bi-retrograde display for minutes and date on the lower portion of the dial. The dial colors of course, blue, green and yellow and each representing Brazilian tradition. The blue represents the sky of Rio de Janiero, yellow represents the riches of the country and green represents the House of Braganza, the former royal family of Brazil.
The dial pops with colors that have been lacquered onto the surface using the champlevé technique. Rhodium plated faceted hands point to the seconds and date on the dial.
The Bulgari Octo Bi-Retro Brazil Limited Edition is available as part of a limited release of 50 special pieces in honor of The 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
