It can be said that Bulgari describes the legendary past of a jewellery family. This 130-year long history has been deeply remembered in the ancient city of Rome. Mr Sotirio Boulgaris is the sole descendant of a goldsmith family in Greece. He inherited the inheritance left by his ancestors in a small village called Epirus. In 1880 he decided to move to Italy. In 1884, his first shop was opened on the Sistina Avenue between the Roman Forum and the Trevi Fountain. He gave himself an Italian name according to his Greek name, and also selected the V to enter the brand from the ancient Latin alphabet, so ‘BVLGARI’ was born.
At the Baselworld 2014, in order to celebrate the 130th anniversary of the brand’s birthday, Bvlgari has specially released a commemorative edition of the famous timepiece of the new BVLGARI ROMA series. Blended with unique contemporary Roman aesthetic inspiration, the BVLGARI brand name on the gold bezel appears in the form of repeated carvings, which gives the dial timeless and elegant beauty. Today, the Watch House will bring you this highly identifiable BVLGARI ROMA series watch. The official model number is 102187 BBP39WGL / ROMA.

However, no matter how the face of Rome is presented to the world, it can never cover her elegant essence. Also like this BVLGARI ROMA, the 18k rose gold material and polished white lacquered dial add a noble and elegant temperament to this watch, suitable for all occasions, showing the wearer’s mature temperament.
