Bulgari and Maserati team up to create an unimpeachably Italian wristwatch.

You’re looking at the third timepiece in an ongoing collaboration between Bulgari, the finest jewelry house in Rome, and Maserati, the oldest automaker in Modena. That means the design credentials are unimpeachably Italian, from the funky geometric case to funkier dial arrangement. The hand—yes, singular—indicates minutes on a linear sweep, recalling a vintage sports car dashboard tachometer. The hour, meanwhile, is displayed through that crystal aperture at the traditional 3 o’clock position. Entirely unique and deeply charming, a watch like the Octo GranSport could only come from one place. Le dolce freakin’ vita.
