BUL­GARI

Plaza Watch International - - Display Case -

The Bul­gari's de­scend from an an­cient fam­ily of Greek sil­ver­smiths and the in­ter­wo­ven sim­plic­ity of the stunning bracelet on Bul­gari’s new Catene ladies’ watch be­lies an ex­tremely com­pli­cated de­sign and con­struc­tion process only pos­si­ble with such an­ces­try. The chain bracelet is ex­tremely com­plex to make and fea­tures a his­tor­i­cal jew­ellery mo­tif bear­ing the dou­ble House logo. Very much a piece of jew­ellery as well as a watch, the new Catene can be thought of as truly born out of the Bul­gari’s au­then­tic her­itage.

As with any prod­uct from the world-renowned luxury brand, the Catene was an­a­lysed closely from the very first drawing, and slowly but surely the idea was de­vel­oped, with the right ma­te­ri­als and colours se­lected in terms of wear­a­bil­ity and co­her­ence with the Bul­gari tra­di­tion and style. To this end, there is an in­ter­nal work­shop with the aim of de­vel­op­ing the jew­ellery col­lec­tions on the ba­sis of the Bul­gari ex­cel­lence and qual­ity cri­te­ria. Bul­gari even cre­ated a Bul­gari Gem­mo­log­i­cal Cen­tre to pro­vide gem­mo­log­i­cal cer­ti­fi­ca­tions for most ma­jor stones mounted by the firm.

The watch is pow­ered by a Cal­i­bre B046 Swiss quartz move­ment that is per­son­alised for Bul­gari and the Mother-of-pearl dial is set with 12 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds for the hour-mark­ers. All Bul­gari watches are cre­ated at Bul­gari Time in Neuchâ­tel, Switzer­land. Ex­trav­a­gant and sen­sual, the Catene is a clas­sic fem­i­nine ex­am­ple of watch­mak­ing – a master­piece of el­e­gance and re­fin­ery.
