A tribute to the iconic figures of the dolce vita, the new creations testify to prolific, precious and sophisticated creativity
Daring shapes, unswervingly loyalty to values rooted in the history of Rome, designs paying tribute to the women who have forged the grandeur of the city and fashioned the image of a certain art of living and being: the Divas’ Dream watches evoke the Dolce Vita period during which the greatest movie stars of the era shone the light of the eternal City around the world. Yesterdays Divas make way for those of tomorrow, for whom the Bulgari watch creations are intended. Because nothing is too beautiful for a woman.
The new Divas’ Dream models feature a pure dial that focuses on essentials: an hours display through an aperture at 6 o’clock, retrograde minutes hands sweeping over the surface of the coloured stones. The dial layout provides a broad surface enabling the eye to appreciate the unique texture and distinctive shades of radiant sky blue lapis lazuli framed by a white gold case, or of burgundy red heart of ruby stone matched by a pink gold exterior. On both models, the seven retrograde minutes markers are in fact diamonds.
The mechanical self-winding movement beating at the heart of the watch, BVL Calibre 262, has a 42-hour power reserve. Its single retrograde minutes hand, together with the Jumping Hours display appearing through a rounded aperture, transform time measurement into a poetic, precious and vibrant experience. The case, as well as the characteristic lug of Divas’ Dream watches evoking the fan-shaped motif adorning the Caracalla thermal baths, are set with 79 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling more than two carats. In an ultimate touch of refinement, Divas’ Dream is also interpreted in a splendid 18-carat white gold version with a full-pavé diamond dial.
