In celebration of the “Bvlgari Bvlgari 40th anniversary,” Bulgari has brought out two ladies wristwatches in a 26 mm or 33 mm stainless-steel case, mother-of-pearl dial, brilliant-cut diamond hour markers, and a diamond-set bezel. Also in recognition of the anniversary, men’s models have been given a new facelift with a blue dial designed to be the same shade as Bulgari’s sapphires.
