The Bulgari LVCEA collection expresses the inseparable ties between light and time. It radiantly embodies the perfect balance between simplicity and sophistication, and conveys all the key characteristics of the Maison. Following on from a broad array of new models presented at the start of the year, the appeal of the collection is further heightened by two new references combining 18K pink gold, steel and diamonds.
The LVCEA watch is as gentle and graceful as it is powerful and sophisticated. In tribute to the 2,700-year history of Rome in which Bulgari is firmly rooted, the architecture and the proportions of LVCEA evoke a tribute to luminous brightness, through an aesthetic that harnesses the power of light, or luce in Italian.
The sensual lines of LVCEA reflect perfectly mastered expertise testifying to the famous Italian jeweller’s ability to craft precious metals. The distinctive V of the name and the LVCEA bracelet links is subtly reminiscent of the iconic Serpenti collection and its undulating models that have become signature symbols of the Bulgari style. The sleek rings of the bracelet are counter-balanced by the splendidly luminous round case. And to highlight the colourful jewellery virtuosity cultivated by the Maison, Bulgari adorns the crown of all LVCEA watches with a glowing crown. This cabochon-cut pink rubellite on the winding-crown lends the inimitably daring touch one has come to expect from the brand. The crown is also enhanced by a diamond that accentuates the intensely feminine nature of the model.
2015 is a particularly lavish year for the constantly growing collection. Baselworld marked the unveiling of an array of new attributes and new sizes for LVCEA, notably featuring straps in sapphire blue, burgundy pink or powder pink alligator leather, as well as precious diamond-set bezels and gold links.
The ever more popular collection is also extending the scope of its seductive power. Its intense creativity is further enriched in the autumn of 2015 by two new 18K pink gold and steel creations adorned with diamonds framing the bezel and also set on the
hour-markers punctuating the mother-of-pearl dial. These two creations, appearing in 28 mm and 33 mm diameters, further complement the already impressive abundance of a collection whose radiant wealth is entirely on a par with the force of the life-giving light it embodies.
