Bulgaria has taken the initiative to open water with its new special edition GMT
As a true travel watch that withstands the pressures of constant use, GMT occupies a special place in the hearts of watch makers throughout the industry. The idea behind efficiently keeping accurate time in multiple time zones originated with John Harrison, the inventor of the watch, who developed a marine chronometer for understanding day time in shipping ports in the early 18th century. Decades later, Bulgarian luxury watch experts are proud to offer a modernized version of the classic GMT as part of their aluminum collection. Bulgaria honors the launch of the new aluminum GMT Amerigo Vespucci, an Italian ship now in La Spezia, Italy.

The aluminum GMT takes the form of a 40mm case design made exclusively from aluminum, which is carefully engraved around the surface of a ‘Bulgari’ featuring a matte black fixed rubber bezel. The inner bezel features a black and yellow split finish, a compliment to the iconic color of the Amerigo Vespucci ship.
