We all know that black is chic, and the Bulgari Bulgari Cities Special Edition has added to this perennial favourite an urban sophistication. The watch itself was born in the '70s and is crafted in steel coated with Diamond Like Carbon. The name of each city is engraved on the bezel, whose design is inspired by an ancient Romain coin. The transparent caseback reveals the automatic Calibre BVL 191 with 42-hour power reserve. It comes with interchangeable black rubber strap and brown calf leather strap.
