Bvlgari, or Bulgari in its non-Latin spelling, is a powerhouse luxury goods brand that produces a host of first-class timepieces. Its watch branch, established relatively recently in 1980, concentrates first and foremost on making high quality movements. Bulgari acquisition of recently deceased watchmaker Gerald Genta, a man who had an excellent reputation in the industry, turned out to be their making. Despite cooperating with many of the world’s top brands including IWC, Patek Phillipe and Audemars Piguet, many specialists argue that Genta’s best work was under Bulgari management. The Bulgari Gerald Genta range, is possibly its most popular. Bulgari has since absorbed other notable watchmakers such as Daniel Roth.
