The founders of Bvlgari brand, the Bulgari family descended from a family of Greek silversmiths. Their activities started in the village of Epirus where Sotirio Bulgari the family patriarch crafted precious objects from silver. Sotirio emigrated to Italy and opened his first shop in 1994 at Via Sistina, Rome. His sons named Constantino and Georgio helped him inaugurate a shop located in Via Condotti which continues to remain as the Bvlgari flaghip store of today. The brothers soon began taking a passion for precious stones and jewels and became the natural choices to take over their father’s role.
In the 1940s, the company introduced Bvlgari watches into the market. Their first timepiece was a snake-watch inspired by the 1920s Art Deco period. Those set of replica Bvlgari watches introduced were unmistakably unique and extravagant with its gold-littered coils. The company continued to attract a distinguish list of clientele which includes industrialists like Nelson Rockefeller and political figures like Evita Peron. In the 1970s, the company’s management decided to re-launch the snake-watch. This time it was with a flexible hand-made gold bracelet known as the Tubogas. The company may have introduced varieties of pocket, lapel and wrist watches before but it was only in the 1970s that the company introduced a major collection of Bvlgari replica watches. In 1977 one of the most popular of the Bvlgari watches was introduced. This was the called the Bvlgari Bvlgari model that has that distinct logo and craftsmanship.
