The tubogas bracelet, with its flexible links that coil around the wrist, is one of the brand’s signature looks, first used by Bulgari in the 1940s. Tubogas is so-called because of its similarity to a woven-metal gas pipe, an elegant expression of industrial-inspired design. It is formed by wrapping long bands of gold or steel around a steel core, interlocking to hide the core metal. It is combined for the first time this year with the case of the Lucea, Bulgari’s most modern ladies’ watch. The name Lucea comes from luce, Italian for “light,” and celebrates the essence of the sundial, with its light-reflecting mother-of-pearl and diamond dials. Lucea Tubogas watches come in a two-tone combination of gold and steel.
