BORN FOR THE SEA: THE MEN'S WATCHES OF THE SUMMER 2018

Re-releases of vintage models, old icons with new movements and great performances: here are the protagonists of the holidays.
Passion does not go on vacation. Indeed, it is precisely when the sea becomes bluer than the desire to show oneself and to dedicate oneself to what pleases increases. And for a free spirit that sails in the waves and goes deep. The time factor is essential. Like the air. So here is what the world of watchmaking offers to experience the summer 2018 comfortably staying in water or arduamente dropped into the depths of the ocean.

The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Expedition Charles Darwin” is the first watch in the history of IWC made of bronze, ancient material and tribute to the instruments used on the ship that brought Charles Darwin to the Galapagos Islands. With 44 mm case, 89365 movement and resistant to 30 bar pressure, it is the watch for those who love the magic of discovery.

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M is one of the most famous models of the Swiss brand, waterproof up to 30 bar. Clean design and strong character make it immediately a James Bond cult.

The design is that of Edmond Capt and dates back to 1973; the movement is super current. With the Breitling Superocean Heritage II B01 Chronograph 44 you will have one of the most exciting news on the market today: the Breitling caliber 01.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer : the most “elegantly sporty”. For him, Tag Heuer patented the first waterproof box in 1895 and has not forgotten it. The Aquaracer is the model that best expresses its research in this sense: waterproof up to 300 meters, enriched by the caliber 5 movement, has a power reserve of 38 hours.

The Tudor Pelagos is a must have for true connoisseurs: the highest-end model in the Tudor diver’s collection (together with Black Bay) is in fact highly appreciated. The original blue “mat” of its case houses the first movement made by Tudor: the MT5612.

Dedicated to sportsmen. The Tissot Sea-Touch in Meters is a hi-tech jewel of the Swatch brand. With digital chronograph, alarm clock, thermometer, perpetual calendar, compass and diver’s notes. Until the last breath!

All watches are available in the Baggio Luxury boutiques. Before taking a dip, go and try them! For info: info@baggioluxury.com

Bulgari: how a Maison is born
Bulgari watches
The 2018 news

BULGARI: how a Maison is born

If it is true that his birth is due to the Greek Sotirios Voulgaris who came to Italy in search of fortune in 1881, his story is profoundly and intimately Italian. It is in Rome that Bulgari sinks its aesthetic roots, acquiring its historicity already in the etymology of the brand where the Latin was preferred to the Greek. It was 1894. Sotirios with the partner Demetrio Kremos open BVLGARI, a shop in via Sistina in Rome dedicated to the sale of silver jewelery. The creativity and beauty that characterize them trigger a success of the sudden public so much to push the two partners to raise the bar: the jewels, more and more precious, are accompanied by precious stones and gold; the research is also in design, transformational and never predictable, to offer women a free interpretation in the way of wearing the jewelry with brooches that became pendants and necklaces worn as bracelets … just like it was at the time in Paris.

That same Paris that today houses the headquarters of the luxury colossus LVMH, which in 2012 acquired the brand without however distorting it (for more information CLICK HERE). The Bulgari office, however, remains in Rome, as well as the historic boutique in Via Condotti, but above all, as the patrimony of the style of the Maison.

BULGARI WATCHES

The history of Bulgari watchmaking is in fact closely linked to its goldsmith production. Bulgari has been creating a timepiece for women for over a century. This is testified by the Maison’s archives that remind us of the sparkling debut, in 1920, of the first model with diamonds. However, it was in the Forties with the launch of Serpenti, the Bulgari collection of supple and seductive watches-jewel, that its watches enter the collective imagination, becoming the spokesman of a unique and recognizable style. The sinuous design of the Serpenti collection of timepieces is then revisited in the Fifties with the launch of the Tubogas models, realized thanks to the expertise of the goldsmiths’ homonymous technique. 1975 opens with the phenomenon BVLGARI ROMA and the limited edition presentation of 100 specimens, initially offered only to the best customers of the Maison, but which subsequently triggered a great demand, which was answered in 1977, with the launch of the historical BVLGARI BVLGARI collection with double engraving, inspired by the inscriptions on ancient Rome coins. The men’s line debuted in 1988: the Diagono models are born, to wear every day, dedicated to the active but elegant man.

Since then, the lines of men and women are progressing in parallel in the perennial search for excellence. Let’s quote some salient stages …

In 1993 the launch of the Carbon Gold Bulgari collection was a real revolution so that the collection became an icon of the watchmaking world. The reason is simple: the collection has paved the way for all kinds of research on alloys and metals, giving rise to surprising and unexpected combinations. Re-edited in 2016 with a super-current look (see photo on the cover), the watch offers yesterday as today the pleasant sensation of wearing an extraordinary and unique watch.

Citing the official BVLGARI sources, in 2004, the Maison is pleased to present Grandes Complications, the first line of watches produced internally where the ingenuity of the tourbillon movements is combined with exceptional compositions. After a new interpretation of the Serpenti creations, embellished in 2010 by a sinuous reinterpretation of the tubogas workmanship, the Octo collection breaks into 2012 with its geometric shapes and the innovative octagonal design.

2014 is the year of records: while it illuminates the female wrists with the new LVCEA collection, the most sparkling timepiece of the entire collection inspired by the ancient Roman sundials and embellished by a crown with a pink cabochon-cut stone, BVLGARI is officially rewarded at Geneva with the award of recognition for the best jewel-watch of 2014 to a wonderful model of the DIVAS ‘DREAM collection, adorned with more than ten carats of diamonds and emeralds and, at the same time, sets a new world record thanks to the subtlety of the new Octo Very fine Tourbillon.

The brand’s creativity does not stop and in 2015, it translates into the refinement of the new DIVAS ‘DREAM timepieces. In 2016, the Bulgari watchmakers set a new world record thanks to the world’s thinnest tourbillon movement (1.95 mm thick), which combined with the small seconds elegance of Octo Finissimo Répétition Minutes reconfirms a watchmaking vision that does not ceases to reinvent itself. Bulgari proudly continues with the presentation, in 2017, of a new generation of sparkling timepieces, including the new Octo Finissimo Automatique, the modern expression of a miniaturized refinement and the world’s thinnest watch in its kind.

BULGARI WATCHES, 2018 news

LVCEA

Last but not least, with the 2018 the new LVCEA collection, even richer, even more sparkling with lights and colors. Metallic notes and mosaic motif, rippled with diamonds arranged around the crown, on the end of the strap and to mark the hours in the dial, speak of the Eastern Roman Empire in the LVCEA MOSAIQUE collection: just a glance and we are in Byzantium. More discreet but equally fascinating, the LVCEA collection illuminates the time by wrapping the wrist with seductive beauty thanks to a watch that pays homage to the ancient Roman sundials with a contemporary design, underlined by the glamor touch of a pink stone cabochon with diamond applied to the crown.

Nicolò Ragnoli

Football and Passion

Dreams and hopes of a professional football player a few hours from Italy's defeat to the qualifications of the next world championships, Baggio Luxury testimonies for the BGO89 Eyewear line.

baggio

“I am Italian and I am proud of it, I hope that after this elimination we will be able to focus more on good young people and especially on Italians, spend money on infrastructure and try to grow what we have at home without necessarily looking for small phenomena elsewhere. that always makes us think about what we are missing, making us forget what we must already cultivate! “. Here is the lucid and unappealable comment of who the player does it professionally. Nicolò Ragnoli, Ciliverghe’s midfielder, the Italian team of the D series in the spotlight, lucidly analyzes a defeat that seems to bring with him the tragedy of the fall of an entire country. Well, Italy will not play the next world cup. The word “Fine” is completely written on the first page of the Gazzetta. Yet, as Nicolò emphasizes, the truth is that we are only at the beginning – hopefully – at a change in attitude and perspective for a sport devalued by the pecunia that gravitates around it.

The boy, born in Brescia in February 1994, is only 23 years old. But he knows it long. Not because it is of those who like to stand on a pedestal. And not even because it is a pomp of one’s own business. No, Nicolò is not like that. Nicolò follows that model of clean, sober and busy boy of a time that was, when the sportsman – in the sense of he who has made the sport a profession – was a fighter dedicated to the Homeland, one of those whose tenacity and dedication did of man an exemplary example of sports rectitude … one of those, so to speak, that the magazines have accustomed us to no longer recognize in favor of a model priced of talent and variety. A bit ‘to Roberto Baggio, his legend always and always.
I wonder if the exit from the world will change the model today in favor of a more limpid and introspective sporting feeling, if we return to that biting spirit of football able to unite without phalluses, insults, strutting. Talking to Nicolò, testimonial of the new BGO39 line by Baggio Luxury Eyewear, offers good hopes for tomorrow. Born in the province of Brescia, the boy made his way into the football field showing constancy and perseverance. But without ever being overwhelmed by pindaric flights. This is why football lives for what it is: a profession dictated by rules, training and team play, which fills you with satisfaction when you win and punishes you when you lose, forcing yourself to unscheduled workouts and withdrawals on yourself to understand where the system he fell into error.
La passione c’è, sempre. E’ la benzina, il motore di quel che fai. E’ il cuore di chi sei e della fantasia che collega il piede alla palla e la palla al campo…fino alla rete avversaria. Ma quel cuore ha bisogno di un corpo in cui battere. E quel corpo, per Nicolò, si chiama famiglia. Sarà che perdere un padre quando sei giovanissimo cambia la prospettiva. E’ inevitabile. Ma la strada che un evento simile ti porta a percorrere non è scontata. La forza di questo giovane talento si vede anche – e soprattuto – qui. “Sono molto legalo alla mia famiglia, a mia sorella, al mio procuratore che prima di tutto è un amico. E poi c’è la mia ragazza, Carolina. Da quando stiamo insieme le notti brave hanno lasciato spazio ai film, ai giri in centro, alla tranquillità di qualche ora trascorsa con lei alla sua casa al lago”. Un’idea molto lontana dalla movida di Corso Como e della Milano calcistica. E benché il Milan potrebbe essere la squadra dei suoi sogni, – dopo il Brescia, sia ben chiaro -, la velleità della metropoli non lo attrae più. Meglio pensare a giocare a calcio. “Trascorrevo molte ore per locali una volta. Ma è una cosa che non mi interessa più. Sto bene così, a fare della mia passione un lavoro che mi permette di vivere, circondato dagli affetti e dagli amici”. Quelli che, amichevolmente lo chiamano Ragno. Del resto una ragnatela se l’è tatuata sul braccio. Non che sia l’unica effige impressa sul suo corpo, ma di certo è quella più contestuale alla sua identità. “Non seguo la moda, non amo apparire. Sono sui social ma perlopiù posto foto che altri mi fanno”. E’ più estroversa la sua ragazza, al primo anno di università. Un “alter ego” che gli ha dato equilibrio. Solare e tranquilla, Carolina ha sedato la parte litigiosa dell’uomo. “Un lato del carattere – dichiara Nicolò -,  che sto imparando a limare. (…) Mi reputo simpatico. E generoso: se hai bisogno mi trovi sempre. Ma guai a sgarrare. Lì non ci sono zone grigie. Se sbagli, sei fuori. Non ho mezze misure. Sarò che sono anche un po’ orgoglioso…” . 
Calciatore per gioco dai 6 anni, professionista dai 16, Nicolò ha giocato in diverse squadre: l’esordio nel Brescia, l’approdo a Salò, Verona e, da quest’anno, al Ciliverghe. Ma com’è la vita del calciatore? “Molti pensano che sia tutto un gioco. Non è così. Ci sono orari prestabiliti, calendari da rispettare, dieta, coprifuoco, weekend inesistenti, la palestra, gli allenamenti. E’ un lavoro a tutti gli effetti”. Ma non gli basta. “Voglio crescere. Sento che c’è un ampio margine di avanzamento”. Ogni cosa a suo tempo. Dopo un breve stop dovuto ad infortunio, Nicolò per ora ha scelto di giocare vicino a casa. Cosa riserverà il futuro è tutto da vedere. E da giocare.

Gessica Taghetti

Born to Dance

The ballerina Gessica Taghetti tells her story to Baggio Luxury showing the most fragile and deep side of herself, without ever losing a smile.

baggio

Absolutely magnetic. She is a born dancer, but besides this there is an overwhelming charisma. Stronger than the difficulties that life has put in front of her, stronger than any injury, Gessica Taghetti is a force of nature. Discover it with Baggio Luxury.

Diamonds are women’s best friends … true or false? “True! – laughs – Especially now that I have found out that they look great! » The beauty of Gestisca Taghetti, dancer, artist and aspiring show girl from a few years protagonist of the small screen is yes in his face, in his body and his art, but first of all is in his spontaneity … transparent. Like the diamonds.
“I believe that each of us has been created for something in the world. Our duty, the purpose of life, is to find that something. I was lucky: I understood very early that I had been created to dance. And doing it is what makes us happy. I’ve never had an idol. I would like to be … like me. It’s like a jewel: everyone has to find what’s best inside him. It does not have to be a copy. I found something in the dance that complemented me, but gave happiness ». Balanced in thought, as much empathic and disruptive in attitude and presence, Gessica was born 25 years ago in the province of Modena, in the land of that prancing horse that made us famous in the world (Ferrari) and Italian ceramics of excellence (Sassuolo).

The approach to dance was late: “I started dancing at 13 simply because I liked it. My first time on stage I dancedLady Marmalade… In the second half of the show I made a representation of Padre Pio “. The devil and the holy water …. “I enjoyed myself a lot – laughs -. On the stage I felt perfectly at ease. The experience allowed me to understand that this was my way. I have not stopped … “. And so, when she was very young, she was in the limelight on TV screens and stages, between one trip and another, without ever stopping. Rome, Milan, London, New York and Los Angeles .. And in every city a sign, a project, an emotion to live intensely: the casting for TV, the MTV awards, the photo shoots, the Donatello in 2017 … its most famous presences we mention CIAO DARWIN in 2010, AMICI DI MARIA DE FILIPPI, as a competitor COLORADO, in the dance body, and the CHIAMBRETTI NIGHT,alone, to dance on the table … But it is abroad that the artist has lived the most intense emotions: “Although I remember with affection the debut at CIAO DARWIN, dancing with Anastacia and Liza Minelli at Radio City Music Hall in New York and next to Justin Bieber and Jason Derulo in live world for the MTV MUSIC AWARDS it was fantastic ».

In addition to dancing, Gessica sings, studies and loves to talk. «The model that I have in mind is that of the 80s show girl …like Lorella Cuccarini! I never thought of being someone else, but of course, she is fantastic! “
The ballerina Gessica Taghetti tells her story to Baggio Luxury showing the most fragile and deep side of herself, without ever losing a smile.
Raven hair, restless and lively eyes are the hallmarks of an irresistible enthusiast. Enthusiastic does not mean superficial. «I understood that if you are positive, life responds with positive energy. I am a convinced believer. I live my faith every day. I am a Christian, but my Church is based in New York, at Rock Church: frequented by many artists, it is based on a more participatory, joyful and shared approach to faith “. Even some of the tattoos on his body attest to his dedication. Which translates into a daily study of the Bible. “My meeting with God changed my life. I found it at Medjugorje while I was pregnant. It was like a revelation “. After all, it’s when you feel more fragile that your feelings get stronger and more disruptive to upset your life. To change it diametrically. In the case of Gessica, in particular, to enrich it with balance, joy and passion. What he puts into everything he does, thinks and says, in a whirlwind of energy and engaging expressive charge.

With only one limit: time. « Time is a luxury </ strong> – sighs -. And if I had more, I would certainly dedicate it to my daughter. ” Meanwhile, space for dreams: “I would like to enter Beyoncé’s dance corps. He is a complete artist. And his tours are explosive …. The shows in America are adrenaline! ” Exactly like her!

ZENITH REVOLUTION WITH THE NEW DEFY LAB

ZENITH LAUNCHES THE MOST PRECISE WATCH IN THE WORLD: the DEFY LAB.

 

The past makes room for the future. The Swiss brand launches a new oscillator that represents one of the greatest innovations in watchmaking since the invention of the principle of balance and spiral invented by the scientist Christiaan Huygens back in 1675. Presented yesterday at Le Locle in Switzerland after the announcement given to press at a conference held at the Manufacture Zenith in Le Locle and hosted by Jean-Claude Biver, president of the Watch Division, together with Zenith CEO Julien Tornare and Guy Sémon, CEO of the LVMH Institute of Sciences, the DEFY LAB is now reality thanks to the work of the Watch Division of the group led by Guy Sémon.

DEFY LAB, THE WATCH THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

Making the difference is above all the movement that, with respect to Christiaan Huygens’ invention, foresees a new oscillator that forms a monolithic complex, made of monocrystalline silicon (with subtler details than a human hair), and which replaces the equilibrium in Suspension. The 30 components of the standard adjustment member (requiring assembly, adjustment, timing, testing and lubrication) are then replaced by a single element with a thickness of just 0.5 mm (compared to the usual 5 mm) that beats at the incredible frequency 15 Hertz, with an amplitude of +/- 6 degrees and has a power reserve of almost 60 hours – more than 10% more than that of El Primero – despite the frequency is 3 times higher.

ABSOLUTE PRECISION AND HIGH PERFORMANCE

The highest frequency gives the watch also an exceptional degree of precision of almost 10 times higher !!! Its daily average is accurate within 0.3 seconds (a considerable and admirable data if one thinks that one of the criteria for the COSC “chronometer” certification is the daily average of the first ten days of testing: from -4 seconds to + 6 seconds, or up to 10 seconds per day). The Defy Lab ensures very high precision even after 24 hours of operation (the moment when mechanical clocks start to lose their energy and therefore their precision). The watch also performs on maintenance: the lack of contact cancels friction or wear, so even the lubrication becomes obsolete. The insensitivity to temperature, gravity and magnetic fields eliminates the key weaknesses of the current rocker arm assemblies and springs subjected to deformation and / or dilatation, making the watch gain the triple certification, including the chronometric one displayed in the emblematic symbol of the vipera, conferred by the Besançon Observatory, on behalf of the International Bureau of Weights and Measures. As far as thermal behavior is concerned, the spectrum of the ISO-3159 standard has been extended: the variants of about 0.3 seconds per day and degrees of deviation are certified, equal to double the recommended amount. Finally, the watch meets the ISO-764 magnetic criteria, exceeding 18 times (for the completed watch), which means it can withstand 88,000 Amperes per meter or 1,100 Gauss.

AERONITH

Another absolute novelty is the choice of the material that holds the movement, the Aeronith, the lightest aluminum composite material in the world, which lands for the first time ever in the world of watchmaking.

The top ten ZENITH Defy Lab watches (10 different versions, each one is different) are sold in an exceptional collector’s gift box. They are all already pre-sold, but for more information, please contact us at the address info@baggioluxury.com
