Two heavyweights from their respective industries are collaborating on a special edition time piece that should have auto enthusiasts and watch collectors stand up and take notice.
Italian automaker Maserati and Italian luxury goods retailer Bulgari have joined forces to build the rather flashy and extravagant Octo Maserati timepiece.
The Octo name of the timepiece lends itself to its octagonal shape, which has been enclosed in a steel case that measures 45mm in diameter. Among the striking features of the watch include a scratchproof sapphire crystal, a transparent caseback with the famous Maserati Trident logo, a brushed steel feel with a tachometric scale, a hand-applied octagonal inner bezel ring, a blue-lacquered dial, and a mechanical Calibre GG780 Haute Horlogerie movement.
There’s no word yet on how much the Octo Maserati timepiece will cost, but you only need to look at the two companies - Maserati and Bulgari - that are responsible for this watch to determine that it’s going to cost you a lot more than just a pretty penny.
