Enigma by Gianni Bulgari has created a limited edition C42 Automatic Chronograph Amazon Watch for luxury boutique river cruise company Aqua Expeditions.
This limited edition watch follows the sell out success of the first Amazon Watch and comes from the luxury watches and jewellery company, established in 1989 by Italian jewellery designer Gianni Bulgari from the Bulgari family of watches and jewellery. Gianni Bulgari led Bulgari from the 1960s into the 1980s before introducing Enigma by Gianni Bulgari.
The watch is only available on board the company’s two Peruvian cruisers, Aqua Amazon and Aria Amazon and has an RRP of approximately £2,519. Twenty percent of the sale price will be donated to community-based conservation initiatives in the Amazon.
Speaking about the project, Gianni Bulgari said: Francesco Galli Zugaro and I have been friends for years and when he showed me plans for the made-to-measure Aqua and Aria riverboats it inspired the Amazon Limited Edition watches – matte black steel and signature Aqua blue."
Among its features, the timepiece has Luminova treated hands for optimal reading during low-light wildlife trek; a steel case with sapphire, anti-glare glass and a see-through case back; PVD treated Côtes de Geneve decoration on the rotor; a choice of perforated calfskin or fabric strap with and a power reserve of 48 hours when fully charged.
