Bvlgari, the Roman Jeweler of Time, introduces its latest novelties at the LVMH Watch Week Dubai 2020. The highlight of the 2020 being the new Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon, a unique small-sized women’s tourbillon specially designed to fit inside the sleek dimensions of the serpent-head case.
Over the years, Bvlgari has assumed the unique role as the Jeweler of Time thanks to the distinctive and unprecedented combination of jewelry-making expertise and Swiss watchmaking.
Serpenti Seduttori and divas' dream reveal their latest expressions
Two of the most iconic woman collections continue to evolve with the introduction of the Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon and new Divas’ Dream editions.
The women’s watch Serpenti Seduttori, continues its journey with the debut of new models that are Born to Shine, including the rare tourbillon movement for women, BVL150 Caliber. The movement of the new Seduttori represents that synthesis of Swiss knowledge and jewelry-making featuring the smallest tourbillon on the market. It revives the lost tradition of the small mechanical movements that were replaced by the quartz in the early 70’s.
Designed to fit the Serpenti-shaped case, this small-sized shaped Haute Horlogerie movement is rhodium-plated, hand-decorated with Côtes de Genève, perlage and beveling and features one sapphire bridge. Bvlgari adapts the technical considerations to suit the aesthetics by choosing a transparent sapphire backcase at the level of the tourbillon to highlight the movement and decoration work - a winding stem inclined of 6 degrees, located between 2h and 3h and special pavé setting to achieve as thin a case as possible.
The new Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon models come in rose gold or white gold with diamond pavé and a leather strap or white gold with diamond pavé and a full diamond bracelet.
Five new Serpenti Seduttori editions round out the 2020 assortment. Their designs reinterpret the typical snake-skin smooth bracelet to debut one precious version with diamonds and one with alternating rose or white gold and steel.
The Roman jeweler continues to push the limits of form and function with the new Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater Malachite — the thinnest to date. The watch is finished with diamond pavé and a green malachite dial.
Octo Finissimo continues to break the mold of watchmaking
The record-breaking Octo Finissimo collection continues to break the mold of Swiss watchmaking with the launch of four new models. Bvlgari, once again rewrites the rules of contemporary watches with innovative new finishes like sandblast-polished ceramic and satin-polished steel and rose gold, making the Octo Finissimo the icon of the 21st century.
The new Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater in sandblasted rose gold is an impeccable feat of technical and aesthetic expertise; the dial’s hour-markers have an incised, cut-out design as too does the small seconds counter at 6 o’clock: the openings serve to amplify resonance inside the case and thereby optimize the sound effect. The pusher activating the striking mechanism, fitted with an “all or nothing” safety device, is positioned on the case middle at 9 o’clock. This exceptional in-house developed and produced movement delivers a 42-hour power reserve once fully wound.
Octo Finissimo channels that rare fusion of edgy Italian design and Swiss engineering with the introduction of two new satin-polished non-monochromatic timepieces: the Octo Finissimo Automatic Satin-Polished Steel and the Octo Finissimo Automatic Satin-Polished Rose Gold. These are both powered by the 2.23mm thick BVL 138 Finissimo caliber and feature a polished black lacquer dial, fitted in the sophisticated Finissimo case. The rose gold edition comes on an alligator strap, perfectly integrated and complemented with a pin buckle.
