High-Jewelry Monete Catene secret watch:
Passionate about combining features of Rome's Imperial glory with its contemporary aesthetics, Bulgari began incorporating 2,000-year-old coins into its jewellery as early as the 1960's, propelling its unrivalled heritage into an eternal modernity. The curb chain ("catene" in Italian) aesthetic has been part of Bulgari's creative heritage since the 1940s and was taken up in the 1960s for the first Monete jewelry.
In keeping with this legacy, the High-Jewelry Monete Catene secret watch celebrates the Maison's Roman roots. The 18 kt rose gold case and bracelet are both set with diamonds, while the watch's cover features a Monete Caracalla, Denarius, 198-217. A unique encounter between High Jewellery and watchmaking know-how, the timepiece is powered by an in-house micro-calibre Piccolissimo, the smallest round mechanical movement to date.
