Demurely concealing its ability to tell the time to music, the world-first Diva Finissima chimes a crystal-clear tune on demand, once the mechanism is activated by a gemset charm whirling in step with its owner’s wrist movements. By imbuing the passing of time with a rare degree of sophistication, this jewellery timepiece with its unique personality is a reminder of Bvlgari’s century-long attachment to this noble art.
The enchantingly refined Diva Finissima is graced with an exceptionally slim 18kt rose gold 37mm-diameter case. Its delightful design is softened by tapered lugs whose voluptuous curves are accentuated by brilliant-cut diamonds, while an 18kt rose gold winding crown set with a splendid facetted diamond offers a counterpoint to these gently rounded shapes. The face of the watch is crafted from Urushi lacquer, in harmony with the finest Japanese tradition, in which beautifully shimmering plant-based lacquer is applied to the dial plate to achieve a perfectly dense yet diaphanous cloud of gold spangles.
Diva Finissima is the jewellery accomplishment of a watchmaking miracle whose magic is only truly expressed through rarity – which is precisely why this model, a creative encapsulation of the skills faithfully nurtured by Bvlgari for 100 years, will be issued in a strictly limited edition of ten.
