Three new creations go back in time to the splendor of the Roman Empire, Bvlgari’s source of inspiration and historical roots.
An Open Invitation to Travel
Living in a dense, rich and extensive world of its own, the novelties launched by Bvlgari at the 2021 Geneva Watch Days speak a universal language that extends beyond gender, style and differences.
With each and every one of those releases, travel is indeed accentuated in the truest sense of the term with the Octo Roma WorldTimer that leaps from one time zone to another. The wings of the Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon take flight on the highly original dial display, while the Maison takes women on an ethereal odyssey with the alluring Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater and its Divina sisters, along with the model of serene opulence, Divas’ Dream.
Fusion of Jewellery Art and Watchmaking Genius
The Bvlgari Divina Mosaica can be aptly described as pure refinement in the art of jewellery and watchmaking artistry. It also brings the collection back to the origins of the Roman Maison, in which it pays tribute by travelling back in time to the Rome that is home to the Baths of Caracalla and its fan-paved floors, the foundation of where Bvlgari originated from. The motif can is picked up on the full-set dial of the three new Divina Mosaica models.
A unity of elegance, craftsmanship and history, the refined shapes of the Divina models open up a realm of possibilities that includes High Jewellery and horological complications. The Bvlgari Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater sparkles with its mechanical performance, beating to the rhythm of the world’s thinnest striking movement. The exquisite novelty is enclosed in a white gold case by the jewellers of the Roman company, and concealed beneath a dial artistically set with diamonds arranged in a shape of a fan.
While the visage of the watches betrays nothing of its ability to tell the time in music, a crystal-clear melody chimes on demand by activating the dedicated slide in the form of a gem-set lucky charm that whirls in step with the owner’s movements, lending a rare sophistication to the passing of time.
The Divina Mosaica assemblage is also capable of playing on chromatic contrasts, presenting the fan motif in an array of colours. Presented in a dial depicting the Caracalla fan motif that is composed of baguette-cut and brilliant-cut gems, the Divina Mosaica introduces two additional models in green tsavorites and pink sapphires. The case, bezel and lugs reflect this aesthetic, alternating between the two colour combinations to offer a graceful and elegant creation.
Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater Ref. 103497
This enchantingly sophisticated timepiece graces us with a plentitude of brilliant-cut diamonds and baguette-cut diamonds heartily set throughout its dial and bezel, setting up the Caracalla fan pattern display. A bejewelled embodiment of watchmaking splendor, a ‘lucky charm’ accompanies the watch to activate the striking mechanism together with a cabochon-cut sapphire on the white gold crown.
The Bvlgari Calibre BVL 362 can be seen on the caseback of the watch. With a two-hammer minute repeater operating by a dedicated slide, the ultra-thin mechanical hand-wound movement powers this transcendent innovation. Secured by a white gold folding clasp that is set with baguette-cut diamonds, a blue alligator strap completes the Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater.
Divina Mosaica Ref. 103491 & Ref. 103492
While both models are encased in a 37 mm diameter case that is furnished with brilliant-cut diamonds, the baguette-cut gems that sits on its bezel differs, with the Ref. 103491 sparkling in tsavorites and the Ref. 103492 dazzling in pink sapphires. An embodiment of jewel finesse, the timepieces are adorned with voluptuously curved lugs that is accentuated by brilliant-cut and baguette-cut diamonds, as well as a cabochon-cut gem perched on its crown.
Both Divina Mosaica models houses the Calibre BVL 191, a mechanical self-winding movement with the hours and minutes functions. A green alligator strap secured by a white gold folding clasp set with baguette-cut tsavorites finished the Ref. 103491, while a purple alligator strap secured by a rose gold folding clasp set with baguette-cut pink sapphires completes the Ref. 103492.
The Bvlgari Divina Mosaica is a collection that has consistently demonstrated impeccable craftsmanship and elegance through a rich variety of interpretations. With 282 diamonds (approx. 2.16 cts) harmoniously assembled on the green tsavorite and pink sapphire models, and 689 diamonds (approx. 11.6 cts) on the Minute Repeater, Bvlgari continues to astound us with watchmaking miracles whose magic takes on true meaning through rarity.
