Born in 1975, Bulgari Roma has sailed through the decades without losing sight of its key values: contemporaneity and modernity. The new models presented this year – the commemorative edition Bulgari Roma Finissimo, Bulgari Roma Tourbillon Finissimo, Bulgari Bulgari Solotempo, and Bulgari Roma Tubogas – are celebrating the 40th anniversary of a legend. Today, we are presenting the Bulgari Roma Tourbillon Finissimo watch model.
The new Finissimo Tourbillon version features a combination of two of the most delicate watchmaking complications: extreme finesse and the tourbillon. This small revolving carriage housing the escapement and balance wheel is designed to release the movement from the grip of gravity by counter-balancing its resulting disturbances and enhancing the isochronism of the balance wheel.
The Finissimo Tourbillon BVL 268 movement is just 1.95mm thick, an absolute world record for a flying tourbillon without a bridge. This Manufacture-made mechanical hand-wound movement, decorated with Côtes de Genève, has a 52-hour power reserve. It beats at the rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour.
The pink gold case is barely 5.40mm thick with a 41 mm diameter. The bezel can be set with 44 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling approximately 2.5 carats. The pink gold crown has a black ceramic insert echoing the lacquer on the dial and the alligator strap.
