Baselworld 2018 has begun and day one proved that this year's fair will be one of its biggest and most exciting yet. 

Bulgari announced the release of three new models — one for men, and two for women — and in addition to being exceptionally beautiful timepieces, two of the pieces have one pretty major thing in common: they're both new world record holders. 

The brand's new female novelty, the Diva Finissima Minute Repeater, is the world's thinnest minute repeater, whilst the new men's novelty, Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Automatic, is the world's slimmest self-winding watch coming in at a tiny 3.95mm. 

In addition to their world recording breaking attributes, both designs embody the quintessential luxury and elegance we've come to know and love from Bulgari making these extraordinary timepieces even more special.
