A cosmopolitan fairytale: The Bulgari Divas’ Dream Tourbillon Skeleton watches
As the perennial virtuoso of the haute joaillerie world, Bulgari has never lacked in artistic inspiration. Enveloped in Italian sensuality and the majesty of their Roman heritage, art and history lies at the heart of every creation — a vision brought forth into the house's watch manufacture and exalted in every line of the new Divas' Dream Tourbillon Skeleton collection. A horological continuity of Bulgari's Divas' Dream series, the maison expands the cosmos of this signature aesthetic with two magnificent timepieces that embody the feminine elegance of a true diva.
Framed in a halo of glittering cut-diamonds and flanked by the Divas' Dream's iconic fan motif in the form of bracelet lugs, the maison's inimitable craftsmanship is apparent in every curvature and most prominently in its intricate naturalist dial. Measuring at a 37mm diametre, the watch features an openworked face handcrafted by the house's expert artisans to depict a fascinating backdrop of lush foliage among which perches a colourful parrot. An intertwining of fine jewellery with fine watchmaking, a clockwork of complex gears, bridges and plates that make up the BVL calibre 208 peers out from the prismatic scenery of nature — fabricated via meticulous micro-painting and enameling for an exquisite finish.
Beautifully expressive of Bulgari's masterful decadence, the 64-hour power reserve mechanical hand-wound movement displays the skeleton tourbillon as the heart of the timepiece, encircled by the brilliance of its exotic garden. Compelling, boldly feminine and utterly stunning, the Divas' Dream Tourbillon Skeleton is truly enchantment immortalised in haute horlogerie form for the modern day divas.
The Divas' Dream Tourbillon Skeleton is available at Bulgari boutiques. Strictly limited to a 50-piece edition for each of its versions.
