Class and mastery of resolutely modern Italian

Founded in 1926, Ducati has been building premium motorcycles since 1946 characterized by high-performance engines, distinctive design and innovative technology. Ducati motorcycles are the purest expression of refined engineering, unmistakable design and above all great passion. The essence of Italian style shines through in the lines of each motorcycle, in which lightness, technology and high performance are at the service of all motorcyclists who want to live an incredible experience on two wheels. The highest quality standards, constant innovation and attention to rider safety are just some of the qualities that identify Ducati motorcycles and guide the development of every new product.

Bulgari with its creations that transcend conventions was naturally intended to share the energy and incandescence of this mythical brand. Enclose it in a precision watch model without curbing its passionate character or compromising its spirit.

Formal Audacity, an unlimited attitude

In two generations, Bulgari Aluminum has affirmed its unconventional approach. A vision born in 1998 of the aluminum and rubber combo giving shape to a pure design and black and white graphics, defined by comfort and sportiness. Since 2020, a self-winding mechanical movement has been installed in its case, adding an extra touch of sophistication reinforcing the legend of a luxury watch known for its formal audacity. The frequency of the BVL 130 mechanical caliber is 4 Hz, i.e. 28,800 vibrations per hour, allowing precision to the tenth of a second.
