Luxury jewelry designer Bulgari is celebrating their 125th anniversary this year and to help celebrate, they are offering this limited edition Carbon Gold watch.

The ultra-luxe time-teller features a stainless steel carbon and 18 karat white gold case with a calf-leather strap and a black dial. In addition to this limited edition Carbon Gold watch, Bulgari also has an exhibition in Rome displaying the history of their brand.

Implications - While the recession is coming to a close, luxury products have begun to rise in popularity as consumers are yearning for an emotional escape back into their pre-recession lifestyles. High-end designs like these watches do double duty as they celebrate the extended 125 years of success for the Bulgari brand while demonstrating the timelessness of the company.
