A journey of limitless creativity. Bvlgari, the iconic Italian Jeweler of Time unveils its limitless creativity at this year’s Geneva Watch Days with these stunning new timepiece designs, all representing an open invitation to travel.
Roman jeweler and watchmaker Bulgari has long been known for its high jewelry and for its command of watchmaking. Now, in its newest watch collection, Divina Mosaica, the brand brings its expertise from both worlds together in a motif inspired by ancient Roman mosaic work. In fact, the brand’s designers journeyed back to the Baths of Caracalla when creating this series.
The ancient Roman public baths were built between AD 216 and AD 235 and were used for about 300 years before falling into ruin, but they have long served as inspiration for other buildings and art works, including Pennsylvania Station in New York and the Farnese Bull. Now, the fan-shaped mosaic floors of the baths are the muse for the Divina Mosaica watches – a series of three high-jeweled masterpieces. Using the round Diva case with fluted lugs, the Divina watches are a mesmerizing mosaic of diamonds and gemstones.
The highlight of the collection is an all-diamond version that features multiple cuts of diamonds meticulously set on the dial to form a fan motif, on the case, case sides, lugs and more. The watch is powered by a mechanical hand-wound movement that includes a minute repeater function.
From the case side at 7:00, a diamond-set fan-shaped charm is the activator for the repeater. When pulled, the watch chimes the hours, the quarter hours and the minutes past the quarter hour in beautiful harmony using two hammers and a gong. The complex caliber inside this watch is the world’s thinnest repeater movement.
The 37mm 18-karat white gold Divina Mosaica Minute Repeater is entirely set with brilliant- and baguette-cut diamonds set in a mosaic pattern. Exactly 689 diamonds weighing 11.6 carats grace this timepiece. Each stone is individually set by hand, requiring hundreds of hours of craftsmanship. The watch is finished with a blue cabochon-cut sapphire for the crown and a blue alligator strap.
The other two versions bring vivid color to the forefront. Each of the two 37mm color gemstone versions house the mechanical self-winding Manufacture movement, Caliber BVL 191 that offers hours and minutes.
The Divina Mosaica Tsavorite watch is powered by an in-house-made self-winding movement, and is crafted in 18-karat white gold and is set with 282 brilliant-cud diamonds on the dial and the lugs, and with 262 tsavorites. The lugs and the case are set with matching-hued baguette-cut tsavorites, while the fan motif on the dial uses gradient tones of green tsavorite to form the pattern. The watch is finished with a green tsavorite cabochon-cut crown and green alligator strap.
The Divina Mosaica Pink Sapphire watch is crafted in 18-karat rose gold and features a bezel set with baguette-cut pink sapphires. The bracelet lugs are set with brilliant-cut diamonds and edged with baguette-cut pink sapphires. The fan motif on the dial is created using a mix of different pink sapphire hues and diamonds. In total, the watch is set with 282 diamonds weighing 2.16 carats and 261 pink sapphires weighing 12.7 carats. It is finished with a purple alligator strap with a rose gold folding clasp that is also set with baguette-cut pink sapphires.
Relive the Dolce Vita. In the more everyday quartz-powered Divas’ Dream collection, the fan motif moves from the dial to the bracelet, making room for beautiful gemstone dials. The bracelet alternates 18K rose gold and diamond-set fan-shaped links, the effect of which adds depth and dimension while maintaining serene opulence.
The Divas’ Dream also takes inspiration from the Roman Baths of Caracalla, just like the Divina Mosaica, utilizing the same fan theme. This collection features two 33m rose gold watches set with brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel, dial, and bracelet. In total, watch has 433 diamonds, weighing approximately 2.9 carats, and is water-resistant up to 30 meters. The fundamental difference between the two watches comes down to the stone dials.
There are two gemstone dials available – one lapis lazuli (ref. 103574), one malachite (ref. 103521) – highlighting the Bvlgari logo and sitting atop a B043 calibre movement. The green dial wonderfully compliments the warm tones of the rose fold. The horizontal striations of the natural malachite pattern also work in harmony with the rest of the design. Obviously, this pattern is a natural formation, so it will vary from dial to dial.
The second model features a blue dial made of lapis lazuli. In my opinion, the vivid blue hue doesn’t work as well with the rose gold case; it’d possibly look better in a yellow gold or white gold case. The natural pattern of the lapis lazuli is not as visually appealing as that of the malachite, and it seems a bit ‘flat’ in comparison. I’m sure some will disagree with me, but that’s fine. Art is supposed to be subjective.
And the Octo saga embraces travel with the innovative Octo Roma WorldTimer and unique Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon.
The Octo Roma Worldtimer features an actual worldtimer complication meaning the user can instantly read the time in all 24 cities indicated on the dial. If you’re sitting in your house in London, and you want to know the time in Sydney and Anchorage simultaneously, this watch has you covered! Powering these attractive timepieces is an all-new integrated movement, the BVL257, designed and developed by the Manufacture in-house in Le Sentier.
You may also notice that some of the cities/locations on the dial are not the standard locations you might be used to. For example, Bvlgari chose to represent the Caribbean not by St. Barts instead of the usual Bermuda (sorry Bermuda) as the watchmaker believes it embodies the heart of luxury in the region. Bvlgari also highlighted certain cities where it has a hotel or plans to open one.
The 41mm Bvlgari Octo Roma Worldtimer is available in satin-brushed and polished stainless steel and matching bracelet or in a DLC coated black steel with sandblasted surfaces and a black rubber strap.
The Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon is a fascinating timepiece. It eschews the standard method of displaying and reading time in favor of a retrograde minute scale on the lower half of the dial and a jump hour display at 12 o’clock. As one of the Papillon minute ‘hands’ starts to move from 0 to 60, it rotates to an active position, interacting directly with the scale around the periphery of the dial. When the other Papillon ‘hand’ exits the scale at the 60 mark, it rotates to a retracted position and ceases to interact. It’s kind of hard to explain as it’s a very visual display, so take a look at the image, and you should see what I’m talking about.
Despite the stunning central tourbillon, the beautiful simplicity of the patented Papillon device is the star of the show for me. According to Bvlgari, the sophisticated Paillon mechanism consumes less power than a traditional minutes display. This, of course, has a positive knock-on effect on the overall power reserve, allowing for 60 hours of power once fully charged. A handy power reserve indicator is visible through the case back.
The hand-wound Calibre BVL 332 drives the Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon. It is entirely designed and assembled in-house by Bvlgari’s team of master watchmakers. It’s a gorgeous movement, and the black and gold bridges and parts perfectly complement the 41mm rose gold Octo Roma case. Again, at the time of writing, no pricing information is available. Still, I’d expect it to be on the higher side of things.

Bvlgari and Dom Pérignonhave fused their savoir-faire and creativity for an ultra-limited edition luxury case of champagne. The emblematic Bvlgari snake encircles a magnum of Dom Pérignon rosé champagne in a celebration of seduction.
Italian and French savoir-faire come together thanks to the shared vision of Bvlgari Creative Director Lucia Silvestri and Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave Vincent Chaperon. The two Maisons share a strong cultural heritage that they continually renew with bold inspiration in their respective realms of jewelry and champagne. Bvlgari Serpenti x Dom Pérignon Rosé is an alluring invitation to ultra-exclusive luxe that expresses the best of the two storied houses.
Each of the very limited edition wooden cases opens to reveal a custom interior lined in saffron and fuchsia containing three magnums of Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2004, jealously protected by a Bvlgari Serpenti necklace. Designed by the Roman jeweler in the 1960s, the iconic Serpenti has since been revisited in myriad jewelry and leather goods creations. For this special edition, the necklace is crafted in pink gold with onyx and white diamonds and sensually wraps around a magnum of Dom Pérignon.
For this exceptional occasion, the bottle itself is engraved with the snake scale motif and has a rose gold label that evokes both the hue of the Bvlgari Serpenti and the rosé robe of the champagne. The Bvlgari Serpenti x Dom Pérignon Rosé collaboration is a true celebration of seduction.
Bvlgari and Dom Pérignon have reappropriated the tempting snake figure to transform it into an object of desire worthy of the extraordinary elixir it protects. The vines yielded abundant and sizable grape clusters in 2004. Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2004 is the fruit of 12 years of slow and meticulously controlled elaboration in the cellars. Rosé is a bold declaration of freedom for Dom Pérignon, seizing the red of the pinot noir grape in its original radiance.
Untamed and carnal, it is unabashedly magnetic. The nose begins with fresh notes of red currants and wild strawberries, complemented by warm notes of ripe hay, blood orange and cocoa. On the palate, after a smooth and embracing attack an impression of precision dominates. The wine’s intense and penetrating integrity is prolonged with an unexpected hint of green citrus that marks the vintage.
With only four cases crafted, the Bvlgari Serpenti x Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2004 Limited Edition is available exclusively on request in London, Milan and Tokyo.
The ring is a classic symbol of forever. And Italian jeweler and watchmaker Bvlgari looks to its most intriguing emblem to create its bold take on the traditional keepsake.
Seemingly in motion, the pavé diamond scales of these Serpenti Viper rings say your wishes for a prosperous year ahead mean forever. And for a gift your loved one can treasure for this Lunar New Year and beyond, the alluring Serpenti Seduttori Watch makes an iconic keepsake of time.

After the great success of Goldea, Bvlgari launches its successor Rose Goldea in July 2016. In Goldea, ‘goddess of gold’, jewelry house Bvlgari focused on the intoxicating sweetness of exotic ylang-ylang flowers mingling with elegant white flowers of jasmine and neroli, while the warmth comes from Goldea’s creamy shades of musk. Bvlgari descibes goldea as: “An homage to gold and femininity inspired by the Goddess of gold, and the beauty of the Sun”.
Rose Goldea ‘The Essence of The Jeweler’ brings a new fragrant story wrapped in a scented mantle of roses. Rose Goldea is feminine and seductive, but its beauty is reflected in the softness of rose petals. Created by Alberto Morillas this feminine composition focused on the tantalizing scent of pomegranate combined with aromas of rose and jasmine. Morillas is increasingly using pomegranate as a key note in fragrances such as Omnia Coral, also from the house of Bvlgari, a fragrance where the red fruit is blended with feminine water lotus flowers and hibiscus. Pomegranate opens Rose Goldea at the top of the composition. As the fragrance develops, the emphasis is on the Damascus rose absolute and jasmine grandiflorum, supported by musk, creamy sandalwood and olibanum. The smell is very expressive, with a distinctive oriental aroma.
Now the Italian jeweller Bvlgari will launch a new limited edition of their fragrance Rose Goldea, created in collaboration with young South Korean fashion designerKathleen Kye. Using her characteristic elegance and a bold style, Kathleen Kye found inspiration in the mythology, symbolism, existing brand elements of the Bvlgari style and the power of modern women to represent the fragrance’s in new packaging. The new limited edition retains the original scent. Inspired by Bvlgari’s iconic Serpenti design, Rose Goldea is described as a bold and seductive jewel.
Bvlgari Rose Goldea by Kathleen Kye is available as 90 ml Limited Edition Eau de Parfum at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Bvlgari.
Bvlgari creates an Italian sensorial experience with its new Bvlgari Allegra fragrance collection. Bvlgari Allegra offers myriad combinations to create a uniquely personal scent. From the composition to the flacons inspired by colored gems, this fragrance collection is both joyful and precious.
The days of wearing a single signature fragrance are long over. Now it’s all about having a fragrance wardrobe and Bulgari just made that a lot easier with their new Allegra perfume collection.

They are designed and tested to all be compatible. There is an infinite possibility of combinations. This was really the driving force, to bring true innovation and customization.
Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO Bvlgari
Perfumer Jacques Cavallier, who has worked with the house for seven years, was tapped to create the Allegra collection of fragrances. “All roads lead to Rome, all magnificent ingredients lead to Rome, and all fragrances lead to Rome”, says Jacques Cavallier about his creations for Bvlgari. Inspired by the history and lifestyle of Italy, the master perfumer put his passion and art into crafting the five Bvlgari Allegra Eau de Parfums and five Magnifying essences. The multiple combinations are the fruit of superb creativity.

Sustainability is now at the forefront of Bvlgari, as they are moving to completely plastic-free packaging for their watches and jewelry, which will save more than 150 tons of plastic per year.
“Jewelry by definition is sustainable”, Babin says. “More than 95 percent of our jewelry is made from recycled gold. We don’t participate any longer in gold extraction from the planet”. All plastic is also being eliminated from Bulgari hotels. Another conscious effort is that the Allegra collection is crafted with natural ingredients whenever possible.
