This new collection pays homage to the magnificence of Rome’s artistic and architectural heritage, with a heady embrace of the exotic motif, drama and grandeur of the Baroque movement, its sense of movement and abundance, Barocko is as complex and unpredictable as anything Bvlgari has ever created. And yes, extravagantly ornate too.
The High-Jewellery Lady Arabesque secret watch recreates the richly textured lace that was a hallmark of Baroque. It is crafted in pink gold with a single round rubellite measuring just under 12 carats, nearly 30 carats of pink sapphires, Paraiba tourmalines, emeralds, and some 13 carats of variously cut and pavé-set diamonds.
The Octo Roma Arabesque follows a similar aesthetic, embellishing the 44mm case with a baroque embroidery of pink sapphires, tourmalines, emeralds and diamonds. With the thinnest Tourbillon on the market, the watch features a mechanical manufacture calibre BVL 268. It is a juxtaposition of minimalism and maximalism and a triumph of technical expertise.
