Housing a grande et petite sonnerie, minute repeater, tourbillon, perpetual calendar and moonphase, this 44 mm timepiece is one of the most complicated watches from the house of Bulgari. It is equipped with the 5307 automatic movement and two power reserves for the chimes at 2:30, which is 28 hours when fully wound and in petite sonnerie mode, and for the rest of the movement at 4:30, which is 48 hours. The stunning skeleton dial displays the perpetual calendar function, which does not require any adjustment until the year 2100. The Octo Grande Sonnerie Perpetual Calendar comes in a sandblasted 18k rose gold case which sits on a black alligator strap with a matching 18k rose gold sandblasted folding clasp.
