BULGARI unveils a precious new Catene ladies’ watch that features an extremely complex bracelet created with interwoven 18K pink gold links. Testifying to exceptionally sophisticated goldsmithing know-how, it takes the form of a chain bracelet, and historical jewellery motif that Bulgari restores to its original noble rank with a watch bearing the double House logo. This new model takes possession of the wrist in an elegant double wrap-around bracelet, set with diamonds according to the version.
As part of the Bulgari Bulgari ladies’ line, and far more a piece of jewellery than a watch, the new Catene stems from the same approach. This creation is a highly unconventional model that is nonetheless infused with essential symbolic values: the chain associated with the double House signature engraved on the bezel is a reference to the historical roots of the Rome-based jeweller and to its fundamental creative history. Its 18K pink gold bracelet boldly encircles the wrist twice over, a masterpiece of suppleness embracing feminine curves like a second skin.
