An authentic world premiere, and in tribute to Ancient Rome, endless source of inspiration, Bulgari new Lvcea Mosaïque introduces dials paved with gold tiles that create a unique mosaic of dancing light, and the result is timeless fascination.
Bulgari Lvcea Mosaïque is undoubtedly a timepiece, but it is – also and above all – a jewel.
The central element of this new creation is its dial, unique in its genre, as it is paved with 700 mirror-polished 18k pink or white gold tiles, each measuring 0.84 mm, that are meticulously placed, one by one, in a long and very patient exercise.
The search is the best possible light reflection, and the artisans working on the timepiece simply follow their own personal inspiration and artistic sense to achieve it.
An ‘art of imbalance’ that is reached by placing these tiny tiles in a way as to obtain a mosaic that is not uniformly flat and that renders light in a unique way, partly thanks to tiny shifts and slants invisible to the naked eye.
And here comes the wonderful touch of human genius, as the gold tiles are placed having a grain of sand underneath, that serves to achieve this slightly slanting position and, all together, the tiles come to form an uneven surface that generates, after two days of work, that unique shimmer.
In limited edition and available in boutique as of November 2017, Lvcea Mosaïque is a great proof of extreme artisanship, a new interpretation that once again highlights the line’s character, and is more in tune than ever with the meaning of its name – Lvcea, daughter of light. CC
