At this years Baselworld, Bulgari is set to introduce several new timepieces into its exquisite collection. My favorite of these timepieces is the new Sotirio Bulgari 125th anniversary edition. Created to mark the brand’s anniversary as well as to commemorate the name of the brand’s founder, this remarkable watch is a unusual release for the brand in that it does not have the brand standard BVLGARI logo on its bezel. The Sotirio is named after the company’s founding father, Sotirio Bulgari, who is also known as Sotirios Voulgaris.

Available in 18 carat yellow, pink or white gold one of my favorite features of Sotirio is the flip-over case-back which provides extra protection to the sapphire crystal. The crown of the watch has a personalized Sotirio Bulgari historical hallmark. The silvered dial has some beautiful decoration with a vertical Cotes de Geneve pattern with Roman numerals and hand-applied faceted indexes. The dial is protected by curved sapphire crystal provided with antireflective treatment. The watch is powered by the Caliber BVL 250 automatic movement, which is composed of 250 parts and has a power reserve of 55 hours. The case is set on a black alligator leather strap fitted with an 18 carat Bulgari ardillon buckle. The watch is expected to retail for approximately $25,000 USD.
