This limited-edition chronograph pays tribute to the joint anniversary of the two Houses embodying a certain art of living Founded on December 1st 1914 in Bologna by Alfieri Maserati and two of his six brothers, Ettore and Ernesto, the eponymous car manufacturer now based in Modena is celebrating its centenary in 2014. A momentous year, that also sees Bulgari toast its 130th anniversary.
Reputed for their creativity and excellence, the two Italian firms have jointly decided to mark this milestone year with a distinctive and exceptional sports watch: the Octo Maserati chronograph, symbolising the encounter between Italian talents in two fields that are at once very different and yet extremely close.
The Octo Maserati expresses the quintessence of a vision of elegance fully shared by the two Italian Houses keen to provide an imaginative and perfect response to a desire for high standards and elegance.
