Bulgari and Maserati teams up for the Octo Maserati watches

The GranSport and GranLusso debuted alongside new Maserati cars at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Italian luxury brands Bulgari and Maserati, which teamed up in 2012 to produce a special edition chronograph watch, have collaborated once again to create two new Octo Maserati watches — GranSport and GranLusso (pictured). The timepieces were unveiled alongside new Maserati cars at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Sept 12.

A key feature that distinguishes the new Octo Maserati watches from the previous editions is the unusual dial design, inspired by the rev counters on a Maserati dashboard. A combination of retrograde minutes and jumping hours indicate the time. The colours, materials and fonts stay true to Maserati’s iconic style codes but what makes the watches distinct are the topstitched leather straps, which are also a nod to the luxurious upholstery in a Maserati.

The sportier GranSport with black DLC-treated carbon case

The sportier GranSport edition with black DLC-treated carbon case features a black dial highlighted by silver-toned and blue indicators. The more elegant GranLusso, on the other hand, is furnished with an 18-carat rose-gold case and the same black dial but with its indicators in rose gold. Both watches are available at Bulgari boutiques.
