Running out of ideas at Bvlgari I think

Movement finishing seems to be going backwards.

This brings to mind

That issue with the salmon dial octo recently. A worrying trend at bulgari...

I haven't even worn my Original Sketch!

Too busy wearing my Ando. My Original Sketch is still in the plastic film.

Yes was thinking the same!

It has to be! I can’t see any other reasons! 🤣

Not a fan.

Imho, they should‘ve at least tried to find a way to mirror the sketch on the dial, so that the technical features (e.g. balance wheel. rotor, ..) are shown in the correct locations (some sort of „see through“ sketch). Looks stupid to see the seconds hand... 

Ditto!

They just had to flip the sketch and it might be a sort of trompe l'oeil. The idea belongs to the Finissimo but it might have been better designed. Once you've done a LE sketch, it's time to move on and edit the design, that would be more appreciated by t... 

Naaa!

I haven't used my Gen 2 movement yet...

I have the 10th Anniversary Sketch with the Gen 2 movement, but mine is still sealed in the plastic wrap. I wonder if the Gen 2 would perform better. My Gen 1 constantly stops in the middle of the night - even after an active day with 18,000 steps. I cons... 

You make a good point, some Gen 1 have winding problems. Should be serviced for free under warranty.

Thankfully, and fortunately, mine winds fine. Send your in for service.

Ok. Good idea.

We have a new Bulgari expert at the Bulgari Flagship Store in Orange County, California. He's a former WPS member! I'll ask him about it sometime.

Some are hit, some are miss. But the OF, especially in Ti, is the perfect blank canvas. For me, I say keep going Bulgari.

On these two, I like others have stated may prefer the original iteration.

Well said!

We can't expect every piece to be a winner! As long as we find models we like out of the collection, we're all winners!
