     Italian luxury brand Bulgari / Bvlgari is now included in the LVMH luxury goods group. Recently, the company launched a new limited series wristwatch at the 2013 Baselworld Table called Commedia Dell ‘Arte. This series will be launched in three unique versions, each limited to eight. The improvised comedy series is a purely mechanical watch with a reed device that can sound the time at any time. The hand-made doll in the center of the dial not only ‘dances with the music’, but also happens to tell the time. What is going on with these weird looking watches? Why can they sell for nearly $ 500,000?

     Inexperienced novices can’t tell the nuances between the dazzling array of luxury watches. For them, the improv comedy series may not be unusual. This is not enough to sigh. In the world of luxury watches, there are many things that people who do n’t know are incomprehensible. Whether it is the subtle evolution of the product or the ingenious reference of the new watch to the classic style, they cannot appreciate it. The design inspiration for the improvisational watch series originated on the one hand from the 16th century Italy, where the birthplace of improvisational comedy as a performing arts style; on the other hand from a man named Gerald Genta, Zunda, who recently died, is considered one of the most important watch design masters of our time. To a certain extent, Bulgari has been double restarted by famous art cities and art masters.

     Impromptu comedy is a traditional Italian performing arts form, and the actors in the play need to wear masks. Wikipedia sees this play as a groundbreaking form of improvisation. Each actor of the troupe participated in setting up a mobile stage, changing the stage set according to the temporary inspiration, and using various methods to entertain the audience. The improvisational comedy watch is connected with this traditional drama not only in the name but also on the dial. In each of the three watches, the hand-painted dial of each version shows a 16th-century masked puppet, and the background painting is a possible scene created by the Bulgari designer’s imagination. Three dials pay tribute to the three most popular themed characters in improv comedy performances, they are Brighella, Pulcinella and Harlequin. Each watch is engraved with these names on the case front.

     What’s more notable about the improvisational watch is the dial itself. Each dial requires the skillful craftsmanship of a miniature master of art who has spent weeks and weeks working on it. The sophistication and complexity of the production process can be called unprecedented, but it is unfortunately not fully appreciated by people in this era, because some of these ingenious patterns may be printed. However, as a top-of-the-line wristwatch, all artistic processes are completed by hand, and the production process often requires the use of a microscope, resulting in beautiful products. A large part of the dial is made of 18k gold and is manually carved into the specified shape by craftsmen.
    In order to present a beautiful color, each dial must be drawn by hand and then baked. The creation of the dial involves enamel technology, which is extremely complicated. The reason why enamel painting is adopted is to make the artwork last forever. However, the entire process is more than just drawing the dial and baking it. The craftsman must draw the small parts little by little and then bake them selectively, over and over. Each dial of the Bulgari improvisational watch has been baked up to 50 times. It takes five weeks to make a single dial.

     The dial level overlaid on the background painting is dynamic, which manifests itself in two aspects. The puppet in the center of each dial is mainly used to tell the time. This reminds me of the late Zunda. In fact, it wasn’t the improv comedy series that was first used in this case design, but the weirdest and most expensive watch I’ve ever seen—Jero Zunda (now Bulgari) Magsonic The self-winding tourbillon watch. Jero Zunda is infinitely curious about exploring the limits of luxury design. His eponymous brand was acquired by Bulgari, and the new owner Bulgari absorbed many of his design styles, including this weird, 54mm diameter (ultra-wide) case, and Zunda’s time / reverse Special preferences for functional watches.

     The hand-made masks on the dial are used to tell the time. To be precise, at least minutes can be displayed. The puppet’s right arm is actually a retrograde minute hand that can be moved on the minute dial until it jumps back to the bottom. There is a window below the puppet, which is a time window. When the minute repeater function is activated, the entire dial is truly ‘live’. The minute repeater device has a long history and is exquisite and complicated. It is a unique feature of high-end watches. This mechanism uses the beep to tell the time, and the clock, quarter clock and minute are expressed in different rhythms. While the minute repeater is running, the main and secondary puppets on the dial are starting to come alive, moving like little robots. Although the parts that can be moved are mainly limited to the arms and head, considering the size and complexity of the case, such a dynamic effect is already amazing today. After all, the era of this watch’s popularity is already Hundreds of years ago (and it was for the wealthy elite, and it is still true today).

     The reason why the dynamic effect of the dial is so amazing is thanks to the Calibre BVL 618, a self-winding movement made by Bulgari. The movement is entirely hand-made and drives the operation of all devices, including the activities of five robotic puppets on the dial. The dynamic effect of the robot puppet is the same as that of the dial, and it takes weeks of effort to create it. Knowing this, it is not difficult to understand why the cost of luxury watches is prohibitively high.

     The impromptu comedy series watches combine cutting-edge and classical elements. Its cutting-edge performance is in the case of 18k white gold + Magsonic alloy and hand-painted dial. Its classical expression is based on the ancient theme of the 16th century Italian palace. Taking a step back, this mix of cutting-edge and classic makes people feel weird, but on the other hand it is unique, and it is a type of style that high-end watch collectors are rushing to. The craftsmen who create the case, dynamic effects and dial for such high-end watches can be said to be aliens in the artisans, which is enough to show that high-end watches such as improv comedy series are exquisite, even for general repair work, except for training. Apart from the original Bulgari employees, almost no one is qualified. This is a beautiful work of art. Although it is undoubtedly not Zunda’s own handwriting, it will definitely win his appreciation. Bulgari improvisation comedy series only launched a total of 24 watches, is a rare essence of ultra-luxury goods, dare to look forward to these fine-tunes rare. The improvised comedy series sells for between $ 400,000–500,000, and is a rare art treasure in modern watches. It is born out of an industry that strives for excellence, which has tirelessly created a heavy historical atmosphere and pursues profound The unpredictable state of art gives people exquisite to extreme beauty.
