《BVLGARI @ Papillon Voyageur》

The new Bulgari Papillon Voyageur, Daniel Roth Collection provides an original point of reference for globetrotters wishing to combine an exclusive Haute Horlogerie creation with an instrument enabling them to find their temporal bearings anywhere on the planet. This new model equipped with an in-house made movement is issued in a strictly 99-piece limited edition. Juggling with continents, living in step with time differences: speed and mobility are central features of the contemporary world and impose a perpetually shifting perception of time.
The world of Haute Horlogerie watches equipped with original and useful complications has been an integral part of the Bulgari watchmaking philosophy for many years. After the launch of the Papillon® Chronograph in 2010, named after an exclusive and patented minutes display system, Bulgari is now enriching its collection by presenting a creation providing a dual-time reading. This theme is reinterpreted by the combination of the cardinal values that have always guided its approach to watchmaking: simplicity and refinement, relevance and user friendliness.
Displayed around a graduated 24-hour scale, the jumping-type local time display appears through a vertical aperture at 12 o’clock. It is adjusted via the crown, whereas the dual time-zone indication is provided by a central blued open-worked GMT hand sweeping around a 24-hour graduated guilloché disc and adjusted according to the chosen time zone by means of two push-button respectively situated at 10 o’clock (+) and 2 o’clock (-).  Meanwhile, the minutes are read off by means of the Papillon® device. Placed at the dial centre, it displays the measured minutes via an ingenious device connected to the bearing disc. The latter performs a complete 360° rotation in two hours, and bears two independent retractable lozenge-shaped hands running in turn over two 180-degree segments. Whereas the first marks off the 60 minutes in an hour, the second signals the minutes in tens rather than units.
