Watch of the Week – Bulgari Grande Sonnerie


Bulgari debuted a handful of new watches at an event in China recently. Among the star of the show was the Grande Sonnerie Diamonds with Perpetual Calendar in a Shanghai edition with baguette diamonds.

The watch is released on the 25th anniversary of the first Grand Sonnerie designed by famed watch architect Gerald Genta in 1994. Genta was also the mastermind behind the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus when he started his own company in 1969, which he later sold to Bulgari in 1998.

This particular watch is 18k white gold and titanium case. It also includes 88 diamonds totaling 6.57 carats on the bezel and an additional 35 diamonds on the folding clasp totaling 1.23 carats. There are only eight pieces produced, and each is priced at $950,000.
