For those people who know about the famous brand replica watches Bulgari, they should know that the brand has incorporated Gerald Genta and Daniel Roth (brands already owned) in the Bulgari brand. If you want to know more about this, you can read all about it and see a video interview with Bulgari talk about it here. The first creation of this digestive affair is this watch. Basically, a brand new Gerald Genta Octo Bi-Retro, it takes a little more than Bulgari-ness to it. The overall shape and dimensions of the element are the same; However, the style has been “-levantado face” and injected with some of the Bulgari DNA. It feels like the result of a mad scientist combing the DNA of different animals, really, I mean brands of replica watches. Why do these men have to play god!? This horological Chimera is without true soul. Soon we will have multiple options “Bvulgenta” and “Daniel Gari” replica watches worldwide.
Obviously the style of Gerald Genta coincides better with Bulgari, which makes Daniel Roth. I’m curious to see what then mixed with Bulgari will result. Maybe I’ll find when I’m soon in Basel. Back to novel Octo Bi-Retro Steel Ceramic watch. I have two photos here of models of replica watches Gerald Genta earlier. This is a previous Octo Bi-Retro, and other is a Gefica version that shares the same movement. Gefica line was the murderer, and I hope Bulgari keeps it mostly.
If you look closely the novel Bulgari replica watch compared to the previous version it can be said that the design differences are minor. Most notable is the ceramic bezel with its “bolts,” dial changes, and new belt. The new strap is my favorite, frankly part. This is a textured paste made of a segmented style, with a steel folding clasp. The line design has taken a less art deco theme, and is more Bulgari in tone, while still feels very similar. Even the hands are the same. I hope that future designs will come out a little more from the Gerald Genta classic design.
It’s a good thing Bulgari Gerald Genta name of the line remained (and even indicated the elaborate internal automatic GG7722, aka 7722, movement). I do not think this double mark on the line method will last forever, no matter what happens, at least in the short term both names will be there. Why? Because consumers are going to get very confused, and because the Gerald Genta name still carries some merit to people – often more than the Bulgari name. In fact, I suspect the name is there to help add value to the design – more than you would in the minds of customers that only the Bulgari label.
The replica watch is made of steel and 43 mm wide and resistant to 100 meters. As I said, movement is an automatic and predictable through the sapphire caseback window. Studded crown retains the nifty onyx stone cabochon in it. The Bi-Retro name is inspired by the GG7722 movement having two retrograde counters. The replica watch is crafted with a jumping hour complication used in conjunction with a needle retrograde minutes. Therefore, the window located closer is for twelve hours while is embraced by the retrograde minutes scale. The lower retrograde scale is for the date. Overall, I think the design is satisfactory. It will not get current Gerald Genta Octo carriers to market their articles, while not disappoint future buyers either.
In the future there will be many more versions of this type. Expect a chronograph model Bulgari Octo Bi-Retro, as well as models in different materials. Price for this edition steel and ceramics will be very close to the price of the first version of Gerald Genta at around $ 15,000 – $ 20,000. To be frank, I am fascinated and very interested in coming replica watches designs of the company. I think the next designs are much some sensational creations that come with crazy experiments DNA mixture.
