Bulgari Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater

Bulgari unfurls a new Dream for its Diva. The new Divas' Dream Minute Repeater is the perfect essence of horological complication and ethereal beauty.

A creation where jewellery sophistication meets the excellence in fine watchmaking. Meet the latest marvel signed Bulgari: the Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater.

 

 

A first for ladies, Bulgari Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater is the world’s thinnest repeater. Usually coveted by men, this complication expresses the passing of time encapsulated in an exquisitely precious case, chiming with a crystal-clear melody.

 

Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater: a jewel that chimes the time.

 

A shimmering jewel, and a refined timepiece. The Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater emphasises both the art of jewellery and the expertise in fine watchmaking.

The case is in 18k pink gold with flared lungs, embellished by a brilliant-cut diamond setting. A faceted diamond also sets the 18k gold crown.

In all this beauty, the gaze goes immediately to the ravishing deep brown gold-specked Urushi lacquered dial, crafted according to a sophisticated Japanese artisanal tradition.

 

The finest in decoration from Japan: the Urushi lacquer.

 

The Urushi is a lacquer commonly appreciated for its brilliance, elegance and lustre that gives objects covering. Once collected, filtered and evaporated to obtain the first urushi said clear, the artefact can receive several layers, before moving to the polishing.

To work the urushi lacquer is a very long process. It can take several months of delicate work to finish decorating an object. And, the higher is the number of layers of lacquer used, the longer the drying time and the higher the value of the object in question.

As a precious decoration for the dial of the Divas’ Dream Minute Repeater, the urushi dial is sprinkled with gold dust, in a dégradé effect from an intense to a subtle gold tone, like in a wave of gold.

 

The sweetest charm to chime in.

 

A lovely element graces this timepiece. Diamonds adorn a little fan-shaped charm, on the side of the case. A symbol of femininity that serves to slide the striking mechanism.

An exceptional feat for Bulgari that manages to maintain a 37 mm diameter that perfectly suits the timepiece. This also thanks to the Manufacture Bulgari Finissimo movement, the thinnest in the world.

An exclusive work of art, in an edition limited to five pieces, which combines the preciousness of a jewel with horological mastery.

A bold step for the Maison, taken without hesitation that demonstrates the power and control Bulgari has in these two fields.

Bulgari Divas’ Dream is an authentic new watch in the sphere of feminine luxury watchmaking.
