Bertolucci Forza Chronograph Watch
Bertolucci timepieces almost always amuse and inspire me. Models like this make me want to wear them as well. This automatic mechanical chronograph model in the Forza collection is a cherry in the range, and features a Swiss Soprod 2025 automatic chronograph movement. It comes with a black or silver toned dial (with other color elements as well), and is actually among the cheaper pieces available in the Forza collection.
The case is 45mm wide in steel with a PVD black coating and a unique case design that hints at something "just a bit different." This is the typical Bertolucci way of doing things. Note the "different" style of the chronograph pushers as well as the shape of the lugs. Models like this seem to imbue an organic quality into the style of traditional sport watches. On the dial I like the placement of the date window with the little red ring. It goes with the red on the chronograph subdials. On the black dialed version the subsidiary seconds dial is in silver tone, with that dial being in black on the other model.
Dagger style hands are sharply angular and provide a major visual contrast from the organic curves of the case and rest of the dial. Price for this Bertolucci Forza Chronograph is $4,250 on a rubber strap. Look for it out now.
