Bulgari Diva's Dream Phoenix Tourbillon

Press Release – Pre-Baselworld 2018

Bulgari Diva's Dream Phoenix Tourbillon

A legendary crimson red bird, reborn after being consumed by flames…

The Phoenix symbolises the cycles of death and resurrection while epitomising timeless nobility. The brightly coloured feathers of the motif adorning the new Divas’ Dreams by Bvlgari surrounds a fascinating tourbillon mechanism.

Divas’ Dreams draws inspiration from the permanent of the beauty of Rome, and in particular from the motif adorning the mosaics of the Caracalla thermal baths. Reinterpreted in an extremely modern manner, to the point of becoming a Bvlgari emblem, this geometric yet flowing petal-shaped pattern perfectly matches the round case of the watch, imbuing it with a sensuality naturally evoking the muses that continue to inspire the Maison.
 

Bulgari Diva's Dream Phoenix Tourbillon

Divas’ Dreams Phoenix embodies the quintessence of this line. Its elegant case surrounds a watch mechanism every bit as slim and delicate as the partially openworked and entirely hand-painted dial intricately depicting the phoenix alongside the ardent flames. Applying the colours calls for three full days of meticulous craftsmanship. Its vivid, flamboyant colours – ranging from red to orangey to yellow in subtly graded shades – make a delightful contrast with a scattering of blue accents. The legendary bird also appears around the inner rim of the slim 18kt pink gold case topped by a diamond-set bezel. It literally rests on the tourbillon mechanism, whose perpetual motion is entirely visible.

This splendid creation with its refined blend of artistic crafts is issued in a strictly limited 50-piece edition.
