If there’s anything to be said about Bulgari, it’s that they never, ever shy away from the big or the daring. In fact, as far as the Italian jeweler is concerned, the more bling, the shinier they are, the better. Everybody knows about hisB.zero1rings, thick chunky gold bands that somehow still feel so good on the finger, with their last 3-gold ‘Perfect mistakeB.zero1sound one of my firm favourites.

And then there are these, from his newOcto Ultranerocollection that was recently presented at Baselworld 2016. Not content with using stainless steel, itsOcto Ultranero Solotempowatches come treated with black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) for that ultra-luxe finish. With 41mm watch faces coming with either a full 18k rose gold crown and bezel set (right) or a DLC crown with its crown set in 18k rose gold (left), both pieces come with stainless steel straps. Embedded Rubber for that beautiful rugged finish that most men would appreciate. Double barrel, 50 hour power reserve, water resistant to 100 meters, watches are priced at$13,950and$10,050respectively.

For something a little higher, there’s this, theOcto Ultranero Velocissimothat’s a chronograph with self-winding functions. Otherwise pretty much the same as the previous pieces, with a 41mm 18k rose gold crown and bezel, date display, and of course the integrated Rubber wrist strap. Extremely handsome and priced at$17,770Here’s what else you need to know about the collection. Firstly, there are many more variations that you will see in the Bulgari boutiques in Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City and secondly (and more importantly) they are all now available in Singapore for your kind consideration. In other words, #happy shopping.
