BOTTEGA VENETA launches luxury watch

Italian luxury goods house Bottega Veneta which is part of Gucci Group has teamed up with reputed Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux for its first ever watch, the Bottega Veneta BVX. The BVX is a unisex watch that features the fashion house’s signature woven leather pattern on its strap. The dial has a black, brushed titanium cover case while the face is brown. The strap is crocodile leather and is cigar coloured.

The BVX watch has an 18-karat rose gold automatic movement made expressly by Girard Perregaux. The case measures 41 mm across and is made of brushed titanium, an exceptionally strong, lightweight metal with a soft luster. Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal and is also corrosion-resistant and hypoallergenic. The back of the watch is also faced with crystal, leaving the workings completely exposed. The case is finished with a state-of-the-art PVd coating in Bottega Veneta’s signature brunito color.
