There are great benefits of being a jeweler with a long-standing tradition when it comes to watchmaking. A deep understanding of both fields often yields amazing results when both are united in a single creation. This is most certainly the case with the following watches by Bulgari.
The brand has always taken its female clientele very seriously, and therefore also offers complicated pieces such as the Diva Finissima Minute Repeater. It is interesting to note that although this watch is quite complicated, its design is still very elegant and feminine. This is for the most part due to the fact that this watch is not a scaled-down variety of a men’s watch. Inside the white gold case, adorned with brilliant cut, colorless diamonds, we find calibre BVL 362, a very thin minute repeater movement. It is visible through the glass caseback and produces a beautiful sound when the diamond set charm on the side of the case is pulled. The dial is made from aventurine, with diamond hour markers, as well as a diamond set ring around the second’s hand.
Among Bulgari’s creations is the Serpenti one of the most famous. This watch curls around the wrist like a snake and is worn like a bracelet that also happens to tell time. The Serpenti Tubogas adds a bit of modern flair to the design, with the head of the snake featuring a pave setting of brilliant cut diamonds, while the ‘body’ is crafted from stainless steel and 18K rose gold. This gives the watch a very balanced contrast, making it an eye-catcher yet at the same time an appropriate choice for a wide variety of different events.
Using a peacock feather to decorate the dial of a watch is an almost forgotten art, yet Bulgari reintroduced this tradition with the Divas’ Dream Peacock. The vibrant colors of the feather give the watch a lot of charisma and will also render each of them unique as no two are alike. It is framed by a warm, pink gold case, with just the right amount of diamonds added to it, as they do not take any attention away from the stunning dial, but rather draw your eye to it. The watch is further fitted with an automatic movement, as the finishing touch of this very special creation.
