Inspired by Mexican culture and its celebration of life and death, it features three unique timepieces with extraordinaire motifs and engravings and a t-shirt designed specially by Mexican fashion house Ay Güey! presented in a skull shaped leather box. The Bolt-68 Neo Automatic  Anniversary collection was created to celebrate life to its fullest. To seize every moment while we can, and to live according to our desires, and going beyond the limits that conventions dictate. Carpe Diem!

A celebration to remember.

Bomberg’s Bolt-68 Neo Automatic Anniversary collection draws inspiration from Mexico’s rich culture and traditions, paying tribute to skulls and their  mystical meaning. But why the Skull? The Skull is the quintessential Bomberg symbol.

Bomberg’s timepieces became very popular in Mexico when they were first launched ten years ago. Over time, the brand has integrated more stories and tokens from this extraordinary country and into its identity. And of course, one of the most powerful symbols of Mexican culture is the Skull. The skull reminds us that one day we will all be gone to the after death. But before that happens, we must live life to its fullest according to our own rules, embracing emotions, family, and friends while daring to be different. Seize the day!

An extraordinaire message
In more than one way, Bomberg is strongly influenced by the pre-Hispanic Mexican culture. To honor this special occasion and celebrate our origins, only extraordinary details would suffice. The engravings on the cases and bracelets of the three watches in the Collection take up the symbolism of the Yaxche, the Mayan Tree of Life. As the Popol Vuh, the sacred Maya scripture tells, the Gods planted four Yaxche (Ceiba) trees in each corner of the world so that they could hold up the heavens. A fifth Yaxche was then planted in the center of these four trees so that its roots could reach the underworld and its branches reached the heavens.

This central tree, called The Life Tree, was viewed as a sacred connector between the three realms: the Underworld, Middle world, and heavens and was thought to provide a channel for souls to travel into either realm. The Life Tree is a powerful symbol. It acts as a channel through which the sacred flows to both the heavens and the underworld, while bringing movement and Life to all Earth creatures. An icon of continuity, which reminds us that Life is a neverending cycle of growth and change, and that we must cherish and embrace every moment of it!

A mystical collaboration

The special edition t-shirt included in the collection was designed and developed by the Mexican company Ay Güey! (https://www.ayguey.mx/). All production is done at home, in Mexico, which makes this shirt a truly local product. Established with one goal — to spread awareness of Mexican traditions, beliefs, and culture to the world — Ay Güey! puts out authentic designs that are inspired by Mexican tradition and history. Each design is created with soul, offering a fresh new look on an ancient heritage through abstract art, culture-specific references, and relevant sayings on current topics. For Bomberg, this has been an exceptional, unique, even mystical collaboration.

Boxed in Perfection

Bomberg’s Bolt-68 Neo Automatic Anniversary Bronze PVD comes in a unique skull-shaped case. When taking out the foam, it is perfect for storing small trinkets and treasures. A great way to keep your belongings while still showing off your unique style.
