The Lucea watch by Bulgari is now available in a slimmer and daintier size. The new case measures 23 mm, teamed as ever with its highly inventive bracelet.
This baby sister clearly lives up to the reputation of its luminous family, since Piccola Lucea is first and foremost a tribute to light. This 21st century sundial reflects the culture of Ancient Rome to exalt the measurement of time on a woman’s wrist with a blend of beauty and sensuality, ease and facility.
These important principles remain at the very core of Bulgari design. A watchmaking echo of the jewellery collections from the Roman Maison, Piccola Lucea benefits from Bulgari’s perfectly mastered skill in working with precious metals, notably inherited from the famous Serpenti bracelets with their sensual, flowing design. With Lucea, the art of the watch bracelet finds a new form of expression, notably thanks to the extremely ingenious link fastening and articulation system.
Lucea is not a jewel that tells the time, but instead a watch that women love to wear on all occasions throughout their active days, while also keeping it on for festive occasions. This joyful and delightful dimension is underscored by the pink gold cabochon that lends a sparkling touch to the crown and further enhances the shimmering glow of the round case. The change of size implies a certain restraint in terms of the dial, so as to ensure that its purity and controlled light effects safeguard perfect readability of the time in every circumstance. In parallel, the most significant creative effort has been devoted to the design of the watch itself. Bulgari has taken great pleasure in taming the play of light and shade over the case, dial, bracelet lugs, as well as the way in which it glints off the links.
Its interlocking-link bracelet system enables a number of combinations, whether a discreet diamond setting to underscore its femininity, or an entirely paved interpretation. Piccola Lucea treats itself to the supreme luxury of personalisation, making it a small watch with a potent seductive appeal.
