ow can one describe this piece whose design is inspired by an ear of wheat, whose bracelet wraps twice around the wrist, this veritable vestal reminiscent of goddesses from Greek mythology and radiating wildly modern charisma?
It is indeed an icon in the true sense of the term. Its 35 mm case, bezel and bracelet are clothed in two materials dear to Bulgari: ceramic and gold, both of which have been used for 40 years in jewellery, notably on the legendary b.01 ring.
Bulgari’s innovative and creative DNA is reflected in the way the material is fashioned. The Tubogas technique based on particularly demanding metal craftsmanship is applied to the links of the black ceramic bracelet set with 152 diamonds (totalling 1 ct), raising this timepiece – issued in a 340-piece limited edition – to a unique level of excellence.
The art of gemsetting is also expressed on the rose gold bezel lit up by 38 diamonds (0.29 ct), creating a truly magical effect. Austere black takes on a fascinating sheen when confronted with the glow of gold.
