Bvl­gari Di­vas’ Dream Phoenix Tour­bil­lon

Solitaire (Singapore) - - Timeless -

Although the phoenix in this haute joail­lerie watch is ac­tu­ally in­spired by the beauty of Rome, it ap­peals to the Asian as well as Western watch col­lec­tors. In clas­si­cal mythol­ogy, the crea­ture rep­re­sents re­newal, burn­ing it­self then ris­ing from the ashes of its pre­de­ces­sor. The Chi­nese “fenghuang” as it is known, is a sym­bol of high virtue and grace, as well as the union of yin and yang. Here, the phoenix takes a page from the mo­tifs adorn­ing the mo­saics of the Cara­calla ther­mal baths. It is brightly dec­o­rated in vi­brant shades and wo­ven into a par­tially open­worked dial that re­veals the in-house skele­ton tour­bil­lon move­ment. It is housed in an equally adorned with di­a­monds and comes with a match­ing red leather strap.
