Bulgari’s Exclusive Watch NFTs

Bulgari has entered the metaverse and just launched an exclusive NFT-connected watch collection. The Octo Finissimo Ultra is reputedly now the thinnest watch in the world, with a thickness of only 1.8mm.

Limited to only ten editions and with a retail price of USD 444,000, the watch is also authenticated using NFT technology.

A unique QR code, built into the face of the Octo Finissimo Ultra, gives information on the watch’s history, concept, design and manufacturing process, offering insights into the novel ways Swiss and Italian watchmaking has pushed the boundaries of their products.

Bulgari’s workshops in the Vallée de Joux and Neuchâtel developed the watch over three years with support from Concepto in La Chaux-de-Fonds, all in Switzerland.

Bulgari is part of the LVMH luxury consortium and the Octo Finissimo Ultra was launched in partnership with AURA blockchain consortium. AURA focuses on battling counterfeiting in the luxury goods market and promoting sustainability. Bulgari developed two smart contracts, one using AURA’s private blockchain network, and the other publicly permissioned on Polygon.

Watch makers Breitling and Hublot have partnered with blockchain firms to enable product authenticity measures.

LuxFi is the world’s first asset-backed NFT marketplace for luxury assets, where people can buy, sell and invest in luxury assets using cryptocurrencies and traditional payments. We eliminate counterfeiting while minting an NFT on a multi-chain blockchain network, with a focus on luxury assets that hold value well and have a high resale value. Leveraging our big data intelligence system and unique algorithm for automated data collecting and data processing, the value of each NFT on our platform is backed by real-world data.

Off-White™ Is Integrating Cryptocurrency Payments

The London-based company Off-White™ is the latest luxury fashion brand to move into the Metaverse and will begin accepting crypto assets as payment at their stores.

Starting at flagship stores in London, Paris and Milan, Off-White™ customers will now have the option to swap Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), Ripple (XRP), Tether (USDT) and USD Coin (USDC) in exchange for all products, with no payment limits (following fraud checks), according to Vogue Business.

This move follows luxury brands Hublot and Philipp Plein announcing crypto transaction options in 2021.

To account for crypto price volatility, the company uses the LUNU POS terminal to find the exchange rate of currency-to-crypto. Refunds crypto purchases will be issued in store credit in local currency.

“This is another important step in the growth of the brand, that looks towards the future including Web 3.0 technologies, understanding the needs and desires of its ever evolving customer base,” the Off-White™ team proffered.

Off-White™ was founded by the late Virgil Abloh who himself had big plans for Web3, as his NFT and DAO plans were revealed by his close friend Fred Ehrsam, illustrating his desire to “change the balance of power in favor of creators.”

Ehrsam shared detailed Abloh’s blockchain project “Skyscraper”, which paints a deep vision for the future of fashion including NFTs and social tokens, tweeting that “Virgil Abloh was a pioneer in music, art, and fashion. Most people don’t know he was also ahead of the curve on Web3.”

“What I have been running in my head is to start a real-life, digital museum. For it to become an institution where the currency used in that space is my unique social token. Inside the space will be my work, but also the work of a community of adjacent artists operating on a token of the space.” ~ Virgil Abloh, Founder of Off-White™

In 2021, LVMH acquired a majority stake in Off-White™.

Why You Should Buy Your Patek Philippe Nautilus on nft.luxfi.io

The first step is knowing what to buy; then, knowing where to buy it.

The storied history of the Patek Philippe Nautilus (known in watch circles as the 5711), are well-known by horological die-hards and now, the luxury and celebrity communities have began favoring certain models of the 5711 at events like the Super Bowl and NBA playoffs.

Shopping for a Nautilus is as easy as browsing e-commerce stores like LuxFi where one can find a wide range of 5711s available for purchase.

And now, one of the most coveted watches in the world is the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-018 (with Tiffany dial), having re-established the Nautilus as something so rare that only celebrities are able to acquire it.

First worn publicly by Jay-Z, the Tiffany Blue 5711 is the final model of the Nautilus that will ever be released, after having been retired in 2021 after years of waitlisting turned the watch into a crowd favorite (albeit an utterly unattainable one).

 — @GQMagazine

Coming in 40mm, stainless steel, the 5711/1A-018 model is the much-coveted watch everyone is talking about. The reasons behind the retirement were detailed in the New York Times interview with Patek Philippe’s president Thierry Stern.

The announcement resulted in two final versions of the 5711, a green-dialed 5711 that premiered at Watches and Wonders; and culminated in a surprise collaboration between LVMH and Tiffany to release 170 blue-dialed, Tiffany-stamped Nautilus 5711/1A-018 timepieces that have now been worn by celebrities like Lebron James, Leonardo DiCaprio and others.

 — @HODINKEE

The Nautilus 5711/1A-018 has inspired the blue-dialed theme in similar luxury watches such as the turquoise-dial Oyster Perpetual Day Date 36, released in 2020 by Rolex and seen recently worn by Drake.

You can browse various versions of Nautilus luxury watches on LuxFi Marketplace.

Artist Takashi Murakami’s work is soon to launch at a NYC exhibition at Gagosian. Iterations of Takashi Murakami’s Clone X NFT collaboration with RTFKT has skyrocketed, with values of over 14ETH at time of writing. Gagosian also announced it will begin accepting crypto as payment at its galleries.

The “An Arrow through History” exhibition at Gagosian’s New York City galleries is launching, plus ​​“Takashi Murakami: Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow”. Be sure to check out the Murakami.Flowers NFT collection.

The physical and digital are indistinct for Murakami:

“It seems like a lot of people came to Miami not for the conference but for the party scene — specifically, the NFT party scene. The current interest in NFTs and Web3 highlights Bitcoin’s inflexibility. This isn’t the first time that Bitcoin appeared to be outpaced by other blockchains and coins — in 2017, there was an “initial coin offering” craze that ended badly for a lot of people. It’s possible Web3 will crash in similar fashion, and Bitcoin will be left standing.

But the tension between crypto writ large and Bitcoin itself wasn’t the only thing that made Bitcoin 2022 so strange. There was also the intra-Bitcoin conflict between those who want mainstream adoption and those who want to overthrow banks, even governments.”

Rolex 2022 New Releases

Like clockwork, the iconic watchmaker has “moved the dial” yet again with fresh designs of some of their classic timepieces.

Released in conjunction with the Watches & Wonders 2022 event in Geneva, Rolex has released a gamut of powerhouse wristwatches, reinventing some signature pieces.

Let us have a look then, at some of the elegant and masterful horological designs available for purchase from the world-renowned Swiss watchmaker.

Topping the list for 2022 is the left-handed New GMT-Master II (MSRP is $8,050 USD). Made from Oystersteel and guaranteed waterproof down to 100 meters (330 feet), it features a two-color monobloc Cerachrom bezel insert in green and black ceramic and is fitted with an Oyster bracelet. It is powered by the brand new Calibre 3285, slated by Rolex to be a “new-generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.” Combine that with 10 patents filed solely for the 3285 COSC-certified movement and you have one amazing new iteration of the original GMT-Master II.

Rolex has released the New Air King, coming with an Oystersteel construction and matching Oysterclasp, it’s newly redesigned 40mm case carries new crown guards and has been updated to Calibre 3230, providing a power reserve of 70 hours: “The Oyster Perpetual Air-King pays tribute to the pioneers of flight and the Oyster’s roles in the epic story of aviation.”

 — @ROLEX

The Yacht-Master 42 is now available in yellow gold and guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet); it comes equipped with Calibre 3235, featuring Rolex’s patented Chronergy escapement to combine high energy efficiency with great dependability.

Since 1992, the Yacht-Master was designed for waterfaring adventures, particularly for navigators and skippers. The new version, just like the original, includes a bidirectional rotatable bezel and Cerachrom insert with a raised graduation, plus the Oysterflex bracelet.

 — @ROLEX

The Yacht-Master 42’s hour hour markers and hands are filled or coated with a new luminescent material which is exclusive to Rolex and guarantees longer-lasting intense glow.

Finally we saw new models of the Datejust, Day-Date and Lady Datejust, offered in 28mm, 31mm, 36mm, 40mm, and 41mm sizes.

A full outlook on the new 2022 collections from Rolex can be found on the Watches and Wonders 2022 Website.

Metaverse Fashion Week (MVFW)

The verdicts are out on Metaverse Fashion Week (MVFW).

The event, hosted in Decentraland, garnered multitudes more attention and press than any digital fashion event previously. Auroboros, Etro, Dundas, Dolce & Gabbana and Estée Lauder were among the companies who participated.

Decentraland recruited popular fashion brands and fans for the four-day event. It had mixed reviews. Some say it was possibly premature, however it did receive significant participation, with over 100,000 people attending. It was difficult to visualize actual turnout, since Decentraland distributes users into various different realms when places get crowded.

Many said the user experience is from the 90s, as polygons are limited in Decentraland, despite creators having high-fidelity designs available for digital items.

Despite the hiccups, by 2030, Metaverse gaming and NFTs could account for $50 billion in revenue, according to Morgan Stanley.

What is next for luxury brands, following the MVFW?

Many are predicting more physical integrations. Designer Phillipp Plein has a London store planned which includes a museum for NFTs and the options to upgrade a physical item with its digital twin.

As Plein explains, in the Metaverse “you really feel like a pioneer…everything is new, and there are not many who have tried it. We are still learning by doing….When joining an event on Decentraland, the process can be very slow, confusing, or not work at all.”

LuxFi is building a blockchain-powered NFT marketplace which allows luxury assets to be bought, sold and traded using web3 protocols and decentralized transaction methods. Much like MVFW, LuxFi’s vision is aligned with the greater luxury and fashion communities, celebrating technological advances meshing with design in 2022 and beyond.

Many are arguing that it will not be until one purchases a virtual purse or pair of sneakers in the metaverse, and then goes and wears them in real-life, that the real MVFW will begin to take shape. Only time will tell.

A wide range of innovative luxury fashion designers are entering web3. Those include Nicholas Kirkwood, Franck Muller, Giuseppe Zanotti, Phillipp Plein, Republiqe, Tommy Hilfiger. Each has taken a unique approach to merging blockchain with luxury and global fashion markets.

Let’s have a look at what these legendary designers have been up to in the Metaverse.

Visionary aesthetics are no stranger to designer Giuseppe Zanotti.

In 2021 he released his snake-wrapped COBRAS sneakers with rapper Young Thug, and now he has released a limited edition digital version of the same parakeet green trainers in the Metaverse. Holders of NeuCard (a VIP membership from the Neuno Marketplace) will receive a digital outfit designed by Neuno and Deadfellaz.

“When I listen to people talking about metaverse, I remember the first conversations we had about e-commerce: it was like a taboo and the first experiments were not really successful….Now we cannot live without it.” Giuseppe said.

Fashion designer Nicholas Kirkwood dropped an NFT collection at MVFW with the Decentraland objet d’art community character White Rabbit, offering specific digital wearable boots, with the next step being collectible NFT PFP artwork, in partnership with Dematerialized, which itself utilizes the sustainability-focused Lukso network.

“It was kind of inspired by light refraction…elements I played a lot with. But now, I can give it a whole new sort of spin,” Kirkwood said.

Plein created a digital fashion show plus seven digital outfits (and a DJ set) the MVFW, teaming with artist Antoni Tudisco of the Crypto King$ (@antonitudisco x @philipp_plein) to develop matching puffer coat and bucket hat combo featuring ‘Lil Monsters.

Plein created the Museum of NFT Arts (M.O.N.A) inside of 120 foot tall Plein Plaza skyscraper, situated on his 1.4 million USD plot in Decentraland; M.O.N.A encourages and showcases new and upcoming NFT artists. This follows a Lil Monster$ Gang NFT drop by Plein earlier this year.

He has released a second sneaker collection on Portion, coming as a continuation of Plein Sport’s Metaverse-Native Fashion line.

Franck Muller launched a bitcoin watch. Known as the Vanguard Encrypto, its dubbed as “the world’s first functional Bitcoin watch” with the dial using a laser-etched QR code with a public wallet address.

Tommy Hilfiger created in 2022 the Tommy Hilfiger Island community existing with the Animal Crossing space. In December 2021, the brand partnered with Roblox community creators to recreate signature pieces, producing 30 wearables. For their MVFW pop-up store, Hilfiger created NFTs redeemable for physical products from their Spring 2022 collection, made possible via Boson Protocol.

“The trend we see now is that digital, over time, will become the leading dimension for everything we do.” said Martijn Hagman, CEO of Tommy Hilfiger Global and PVH Europe; “This is a completely new frontier for nearly all our business functions, it is not a matter of simply upskilling associates, this is about building and executing completely new business models.”

Republiqe, a digital native clothing outfit company founded by James Gaubert, offered limited edition wearables of labels such as Coach, Wandler and Ester Manas, plus five bespoke outfits for its digital store in the 💯xARt Luxury Fashion District of Decentraland for MVFW. This was in collaboration is Monnier Paris, who now offer cryptocurrency payment options at its stores. In December, the brand launched digital sneakers along with Koi Footwear.

The “funny thing is, the real world is just the part-time metaverse.” That’s the legendary Virgil Abloh.

One must also recognize the contributions (and some posthumous ones) that Virgil Abloh, founder of Off-White, has made in advancing fashion and design into the metaverse. Through a collaboration with Stevie Williams and DGK, Abloh crafted a limited edition skate deck NFT.

Before he passed away, Abloh had plans to create a completely new web3 DAO and open space for artists and creators, which he called Skyscraper, foreseen as a design house built via collaborations with physical architects in the digital space and a curatorial board which included the Swiss art historian Hans Ulrich Obrist, curator of London Serpentine art gallery.

“I want to make virtual clothes to paint pictures physical clothes cannot, and let buyers access a new dimension of their personal style — no matter who they are, where they live, and the virtual worlds they love”, said Abloh in a statement.

Virgil Abloh was at the forefront of a movement that is still quite nascent. He had a vision that continues to permeate the culture of web3 communities across the world, going beyond fashion:

Bulgari’s Exclusive Watch NFTs

Bulgari has entered the metaverse and just launched an exclusive NFT-connected watch collection. The Octo Finissimo Ultra is reputedly now the thinnest watch in the world, with a thickness of only 1.8mm.

Limited to only ten editions and with a retail price of USD 444,000, the watch is also authenticated using NFT technology.

A unique QR code, built into the face of the Octo Finissimo Ultra, gives information on the watch’s history, concept, design and manufacturing process, offering insights into the novel ways Swiss and Italian watchmaking has pushed the boundaries of their products.

Bulgari’s workshops in the Vallée de Joux and Neuchâtel developed the watch over three years with support from Concepto in La Chaux-de-Fonds, all in Switzerland.

Bulgari is part of the LVMH luxury consortium and the Octo Finissimo Ultra was launched in partnership with AURA blockchain consortium. AURA focuses on battling counterfeiting in the luxury goods market and promoting sustainability. Bulgari developed two smart contracts, one using AURA’s private blockchain network, and the other publicly permissioned on Polygon.

Watch makers Breitling and Hublot have partnered with blockchain firms to enable product authenticity measures.

Off-White™ Is Integrating Cryptocurrency Payments

The London-based company Off-White™ is the latest luxury fashion brand to move into the Metaverse and will begin accepting crypto assets as payment at their stores.

Starting at flagship stores in London, Paris and Milan, Off-White™ customers will now have the option to swap Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), Ripple (XRP), Tether (USDT) and USD Coin (USDC) in exchange for all products, with no payment limits (following fraud checks), according to Vogue Business.

This move follows luxury brands Hublot and Philipp Plein announcing crypto transaction options in 2021.

To account for crypto price volatility, the company uses the LUNU POS terminal to find the exchange rate of currency-to-crypto. Refunds crypto purchases will be issued in store credit in local currency.

“This is another important step in the growth of the brand, that looks towards the future including Web 3.0 technologies, understanding the needs and desires of its ever evolving customer base,” the Off-White™ team proffered.

Off-White™ was founded by the late Virgil Abloh who himself had big plans for Web3, as his NFT and DAO plans were revealed by his close friend Fred Ehrsam, illustrating his desire to “change the balance of power in favor of creators.”

Ehrsam shared detailed Abloh’s blockchain project “Skyscraper”, which paints a deep vision for the future of fashion including NFTs and social tokens, tweeting that “Virgil Abloh was a pioneer in music, art, and fashion. Most people don’t know he was also ahead of the curve on Web3.”

“What I have been running in my head is to start a real-life, digital museum. For it to become an institution where the currency used in that space is my unique social token. Inside the space will be my work, but also the work of a community of adjacent artists operating on a token of the space.” ~ Virgil Abloh, Founder of Off-White™

In 2021, LVMH acquired a majority stake in Off-White™.
