Bulgari Jean-Christophe Babin

CEO, Bulgari Group

What is your best memory of the GHPG in 20 years?
I actually have two! The very first one with TAG Heuer in 2002 for the Mikrotimer with its revolutionary design, and of course the two “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix wins: 2012 for TAG Heuer, and 2021 for Bvlgari. I think I’m the only CEO to have had two with two totally different brands that are independent of each other.

Why is 2022 a special year for Bvlgari and which model best symbolizes that?
I would of course single out the Octo Finissimo Ultra which, above and beyond its extraordinary slimness, ushers the mechanical watch into the Metaverse and artistic digital NFTs. A revolution combining tradition and avant-garde.

What more do you think the GPHG would need?
The participation of more brands emblematic of our beautiful watch industry in order to give the GPHG even more credibility and international legitimacy. But the level is already very high.
