LVMH Watch Week: Bulgari Presents Three Exquisite Divas’ Dreams
Three new dials in malachite, lapis lazuli and peacock feathers turn the spotlight on Bvlgari’s Divas’ Dream collection.
Bvlgari’s Divas’ Dream watch and jewelry collections take their name from the iconic divas of our era. They celebrate the best of Italian glamour with their fan-shaped motifs, graceful curves, and meticulous gem-settings. The collections have been inspired by the colorful mosaics from Rome’s ancient Caracalla Baths, a Roman connection that runs through all of the brand’s creations.
The Jeweler Of Time
Named the “Jeweler of Time”, Bvlgari loves nothing more than to combine its expertise in the art of jewelry with its watchmaking savoir-faire. Its creations are so exquisite that it is often difficult to know whether to classify them as wristwatches or jewelry.
Function Follows Form
Instead of form following function, Bvlgari’s Divas’ Dreams always put the function and technical elements of the timepieces at the service of the design codes of the brand. This philosophy doesn’t exclude the importance of the mechanics of the timepiece, far from it, the Divas’ Dreams include some of the most technical movements and complications for the most discerning female watch aficionados.
The World’s Thinnest Minute Repeater For Ladies
Bvlgari unveiled three new Divas’ Dreams today during its 2020 product launch at the LVMH Watch Week in Dubai. The first is a brand-new minute repeater with two hammers that is so slim that it takes the record for the world’s thinnest minute repeater (3.12mm) in a women’s wristwatch. It is also particularly small at only 37mm, making this technical feat even more impressive.
Bvlgari Divas’ Dreams Minute Repeater Malachite
The Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater Malachite new edition comes in a white gold case adorned with a snow-settings of brilliant-cut diamonds. The crown is also set with a faceted diamond. The watch is fitted with a striking green malachite dial that is set with a further nine diamond indexes. Limited to only 10 pieces, this timepiece certainly lives up to its name of Divas’ Dream.
Bvlgari Divas’ Dream Lapis Lazuli
Fitted with a deep-blue lapis lazuli dial, the Bvlgari Divas’ Dream Lapis Lazuli Collection showcases this rare metamorphic rock, which has been used in jewelry-making since prehistoric times. Its name means “stone of blue” and it comes from northeastern Afghanistan. This striking new timepiece comes in an 18-karat rose gold case adorned with brilliant-cut diamonds. It is powered by a quartz movement and is fitted with a matching blue alligator strap.
Bvlgari Divas’ Dream Peacock
The third timepiece in this trio of treasures is the Divas’ Dream Peacock that, as the name suggests, features a perfect peacock feather on the dial. Powered by the automatic caliber BVL19, indicating the hours, minutes and seconds, the Divas’ Dream Peacock combines mechanical watchmaking with the art of the jeweler with an array of brilliant-cut diamonds on the case and lugs and a cabochon-cut pink tourmaline set into the crown.
A Trio Of Divas’ Dreams
This trio of Divas’ Dreams pushes the limits of form and function, offering three very different interpretations for women. Bvlgari has something for every type of diva, from women who prefer the practicality of quartz to those who appreciate the magic of Haute Horlogerie and complications.
