LVCEA FIRST COMPLICATED WATCH: THE EXOTIC CHARM OF A PARADISE GARDEN, HOLDING THE ESSENCE OF BULGARI SAVOIR-FAIRE
Merging Bulgari’s natural twin territories of jewellery and watchmaking, the new LVCEA Tourbillon Il Giardino Paradiso features a finely and elaborately decorated dial, making it a luxurious masterpiece of colour and unparalleled craftsmanship.
The complex and sophisticated dial evokes lush fauna and flora with an exotic and vibrantly colourful bird of paradise motif. It pays tribute to the talent of the Bulgari’s artisans and their ability to gracefully marry attractively balanced materials and colours so as to achieve a final result, radiating perfect thematic and chromatic balance. Blue mother-of-pearl depicts the sky background enlivened by a bird of paradise and a motif composed of flowers and foliage. This tableau springs to life through meticulously hand-crafted miniature painting accentuated by brilliant-cut diamonds and complemented by the same gems set on the bezel and the bracelet lugs.
The creation is enriched with the Swiss Haute Horlogerie expertise cultivated by Bulgari, since it beats to the rhythm of Manufacture Tourbillon Calibre BVL 263, visible in the window of the bird’s “perch”.
Heralding its true and colourful high jewellery spirit, Bulgari has set a lucent gemstone into the crown of every LVCEA timepiece. In a cabochon cut of noble purple, this twist on winding a watch adds the classic dash of Bulgari audacity. To dress the crown sets an exquisite diamond, a glamorous recollection of the beauty of woman.
This timepiece is available as a rare and exclusive creation, issued as a limited 50-piece edition.
