Bvlgari Horlogerie: Italian values, Swiss expertise. Within a few years, this unique combination has laid key milestones in 21st century watchmaking with four records. The first was a tourbillon launched in 2014, followed in 2016 by a minute repeater and then an automatic movement in 2017. This year, Bvlgari presents the world’s thinnest automatic tourbillon model. These four records all stem from the now iconic Octo Finissimo line and each can lay claim to the title of the thinnest in the world in its respective category. Who can top that? With a current over 400-strong workforce and integrated production of all watch parts spread over four sites in the Jura mountains, at the heart of a major hub of the most sophisticated skills and crafts, Bvlgari Horlogerie has developed so strongly that now it fully masters the production of mechanical watch movements. From the Finissimo calibres holding four world records to grande sonnerie models as well as Solotempo self-winding base movements, the Maison masters the entire spectrum of watch mechanisms as well as the manufacture of all watch components, with cases and dials also made in-house. The division is spread between several production sites, all established at the heart of regions brimming with the purest watchmaking traditions and the finest specialised skills: Le Sentier for mechanical movements; Saignelégier for cases in gold, platinum, titanium and steel; and La Chaux-de-Fonds for dial-making. The operational hub in Neuchâtel handles watch assembly and final testing.
