VENIZIANICO LAUNCHES THE NEW “BUCINTORO”  NAUTICAL-INSPIRED CHRONOGRAPH IN VERSION 2.0

The evolution of the acclaimed chronograph inspired by the iconic vessel of the Doge of Venice, the Bucintoro, makes its debut today with new aesthetics and positions itself as a benchmark for quality and affordability.

The image of the elegant ship that traditionally led the famous Regattas in the Venetian lagoon, symbolizing speed on the water and engraved on the case back, defines the DNA of this new generation of chronographs. 

Tradition and innovation, in perfect harmony. Firmly rooted in heritage and Venetian style, it nods to innovation and progress, all molded into a watch with unique features, high-level technical specifications, and extreme precision.

Adding to this is the complex sapphire crystal with double curvature of 1.9mm, contributing to making the new Bucintoro watch more harmonious and comfortable on the wrist.

Available in two intriguing color schemes: ‘Panda’ and ‘Reverse Panda’, Bucintoro boasts, in the first version, a white dial with black counters and tachymeter ring, creating a classic and sophisticated contrast. In the second version, the dial is black, with silver counters and a black tachymeter ring, giving the chronograph an elegant and sporty appearance. Two varieties that offer the opportunity for owners to express their unique and well-defined style through colors.

The heart of the new Bucintoro beats with the NE88 movement, Seiko’s most modern chronograph caliber, with three counters measuring minutes, seconds, and chronograph hours, which, in addition to precision, features a column wheel and vertical clutch, an exclusive characteristic of high-end chronographs. Four distinct references, each with its unique character. Two models come with the sophisticated Canova steel bracelet, while the other two feature handcrafted Italian leather straps that capture the essence of tradition and craftsmanship. Additionally, it is possible to separately purchase a rubber strap, giving Bucintoro total versatility to adapt to any elegant or sporty context.
