Bulgari’s newest watch collection for women turns a collection of tiny watches into a bold fashion statement.
The “Piccola Catene” (small chains) collection is based on the gourmette chain that was a signature design motif of the Roman jewelry house in 1970s. The gourmette chain consists of braided flattened loops with rough and smooth sides.
The design of the chains, available in 18k pink or white gold, either paved in diamonds or diamond pavé in alternating links, brings refinement and airiness to the collection of tiny watches.
These chains attach to watches that are mere 22mm in diameter. The bezel is either paved with diamonds or engraved by the double Bulgari signature, inspired by Ancient Roman coins, and a symbol of the jewelry house. The dials are available in black lacquer, white mother-of-pearl or diamond pavé. The gold crown on all of the watches is set with a pink cabochon-cut stone.
There are four models, all with quartz movements, in the collection. They are available as follows:
* Case and chain bracelet in 18k pink gold, black lacquered dial bearing 12 brilliant-cut diamond hour-markers
* Case in 18k pink gold with bezel set with 31 brilliant-cut diamonds, 18k pink gold chain bracelet with links partially set with 22 brilliant-cut diamonds and mother-of-pearl dial bearing 12 brilliant-cut diamond hour-markers.
* Case in 18k white gold with bezel set with 31 brilliant-cut diamonds, 18k white gold chain bracelet with links partially set with 32 brilliant-cut diamonds and a black dial bearing 12 brilliant-cut diamond hour-markers.
