BULGARI Mediterranean Eden

This original and refined watch collection from Bulgari draws inspiration from the wellspring of Mediterranean history and culture. Mediterranean Eden pays tribute to the original values of the House of Bulgari, lies at the crossroads between watchmaking and jewellery and is entirely in line with this rich and dense heritage that has strongly guided and nurtured the brand’s creative approach.

Mediterranean Eden is an eloquent expression of this rich legacy. It displays the originality and aesthetic elegance characteristic of Bulgari creations. Entirely respectful of company history, this model testifies to its taste for the twin worlds of jewellery and horology: its subtle construction echoes that of the so-called “mysterious” or “secret” watches.

The playful graphic design of its pivoting open worked cover, when opened, serves to read off the hours and minutes. When closed, it delicately conceals the mother-of-pearl dial adorned with an arabesque motif showing just beneath the surface, thus transforming this precious object into an elegant and richly embellished jewellery bracelet.

Mediterranean Eden is clothed in a rose gold or white gold case weighing 60 grams, and is distinguished by the craftsmanship evidenced in its finely chased cover. Its motifs, evoking the warm arabesques of Mediterranean architecture, are set with a pearl for the first rose gold version; or with 4 round brilliant-cut diamonds (0.58cts), 58 brilliant-cut diamonds (0.45cts) and 6 pearls for the second white gold version.

In its multi-coloured interpretation, the richest of all, the cover of the Mediterranean Eden watch is adorned with 3 round brilliant-cut diamonds (0.34cts), 132 brilliant-cut diamonds (1.1cts), delicately highlighted by 10 generously sized coloured stones: amethyst, tourmaline, citrine, peridot and topaz lend a distinctive and original dimension to this magnificent composition.

The crown of each variation is set with a cabochon-cut stone – a pearl for the first two versions, and a tourmaline for the multi-coloured model. The precious 40mm-diameter case slides smoothly onto the wrist thanks to its satin strap equipped with a 12.5-gram gold folding clasp. It houses a quartz movement specially personalised for Bulgari.
