BORN OF LIGHT

ELE­GANCE MEETS FUNC­TION­AL­ITY IN BUL­GARI’S NEW LUCEA COL­LEC­TION.

Town & Country (Philippines) - - BRIGHT THINGS - By Wil­liam Batchelor

It was once be­lieved that watches with horo­log­i­cal com­pli­ca­tions be­longed ex­clu­sively to men. But times have changed and watch­mak­ers have learned to adapt to the evolv­ing needs of the mod­ern woman. Such is the case with

Bul­gari’s lat­est col­lec­tion of el­e­gant time­pieces. Lucea, a daz­zling as­sem­bly of watches by the renowned Ital­ian jeweler, is de­signed to meet the tastes of ev­ery woman. Of­fered in three styles, the time­pieces are col­lec­tively in­spired by the pres­ence of light and the way it per­me­ates a watch’s dial.

The Lucea Tour­bil­lon is more than a watch—it’s a glim­mer­ing jew­elry piece with a com­plex move­ment. The 18-karat gold time­piece mea­sures 38 mil­lime­ters in di­am­e­ter and comes in two op­tions: a white gold de­sign with a crim­son­col­ored hearth of ruby dial, and a yel­low gold ver­sion em­bel­lished with a vivid green jade dial. Its bezel is en­crusted with 46 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds while di­a­mond hour­mark­ers adorn its face.

Draw­ing upon the ro­man­tic na­ture of the sky, the Lucea Moon Phase watch is per­fectly bal­anced in its de­sign. A crevice in the up­per part of the mother-of­pearl dial forms an arc show­ing the phase of the moon. The sky against which the moon ap­pears takes on ei­ther a blue, bright red, or plum pur­ple color that matches its al­li­ga­tor leather strap. The Lucea gold and Steel, mean­while, is so­phis­ti­cated yet suit­able for any time of day. The bracelet links re­sem­ble in­verted snake scales, and the chic blend of gold and steel is a win­ning com­bi­na­tion. con­sis­tent in all Lucea time­pieces is the use of Bul­gari’s trade­mark cabo­chon-cut stones that serve as the watches’ crown. Greenbelt 4, 728.5061.
