BORN OF LIGHT
ELEGANCE MEETS FUNCTIONALITY IN BULGARI’S NEW LUCEA COLLECTION.
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.
