If you’re already ditching plans to wear those blue dialled wristwatches you’ve accumulated in the last decade or so because green is the current way to go, we’d have you know that this isn’t the case. Bvlgari’s backing the blue again for this throwback series simply known as the Aluminium, which alludes to the main material behind the blueprint. Birthed in the ‘90s, this wristwatch has been a favourite with those cashing in their first pay cheque thanks to its easy-on-the-eyes profile and featherweight feel. And yes, it was easy on the wallet too. Now, Bvlgari is adding a GMT function to this series that it only relaunched last year, timed to meet the yearend gift-giving season and holiday plans in the horizon. Why this GMT wristwatch? Simply because of legibility. Most GMT wristwatches in the market position its 24-hour scale on the bezel. Bvlgari’s version relocates it to the outer scale of the dial, pitting it closer to the hand of the second timezone for even easier reading. And don’t be worried that no one will notice you’re flexing a Bvlgari; the brand logo is repeated multiple times on the dial, bezel, strap, and buckle.
