Bulgari‘s acquisition of Gérald Genta in 2000 was an influential move in developing and shaping what Bulgaris’ line of watches has become today. Between the modern Bulgari Octo case designs and the original Gérald Genta Octo watch line, the resemblance is pretty clear. In a beautiful homage to the 50th anniversary of the founding of Gérald Genta, Bulgari is set to release the Arena Bi-Retro Gerald Genta 50th Anniversary watch.

The special timepiece is encased in a 41mm platinum case, placed in an overlay of hues of dark navy and blue. The watch features a blue lacquer dial, a jumping hours complication, and is powered by the automatic caliber BVL 300 movement.

The platinum watch is limited to just 50 pieces, and will retail for $59,000 USD.

In other news Rihanna is rumoured to be starting a luxury house with LVMH.
