ABTW: A great way to be introduced to a wide variety of watches! What was your first grail watch?
Patek Philippe Ref. 4936J
It’s more than time to start taking Bulgari seriously as a haute horology brand: they have been making some really technical and interesting pieces lately such as the L'Ammiraglio del Tempo, which debuted at Baselworld earlier this year, and the Daniel Roth Carillon Tourbillon Minute-Repeater, which you see here. What is interesting about it is that unlike most minute repeaters, which typically have two hammers and gongs, the Daniel Roth Carillon Tourbillon Minute-Repeater has three hammers and gongs, allowing it to play a third high note. More about this mechanism, all the other peculiarities of this piece, and the Daniel Roth collection in our article.
