Bulgari Mediterranean Eden: Diamonds and Pearls
Like many other high-jewelry timepieces from Bvlgari (and lots of other serious fashion brands,) the new Bulgari Mediterranean Eden collection of watches was designed to be worn with bracelets, necklaces and earrings belonging to a collection of jewelry items with the same -rather playful- name.
Being primarily a jewelry item, the watch is powered by a simple Swiss made quartz mechanism, but is available in at least three (I believe, there will be more of them later) versions that differ with their colors and materials, but have the same structure.
If you will compare the three models, you will easily notice that their dials are decorated with the same removable covers that feature similar decor.
Trying to satisfy all tastes and financial means, the Italian fashion house offered one of the three watches with a simple dial cover featuring a single pearl and a smaller pearl adorning its setting crown.
On the other hand, the most festive version of the Bulgari Mediterranean Eden comes decorated with 132 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling at 1.1 carats, three round diamonds, and ten colored precious and semiprecious stones: amethyst, tourmaline, citrine, peridot and topaz. Its tiny setting crown is, too, set with a tourmaline the color of rose wine.
All three timekeepers are presented in cases crafted from either white or rose gold. Being 40 millimeters in diameter, the cases occupy a lot real estate on an average wrist, but in return offer tons of visual pleasure.
By the way, speaking of mass, I must mention that, thanks to its ultra-light (and ultra-compact, so the watch is quite thin) quartz movement, the timekeeper’s body weighs only 60 grams. Add here around 12.5 grams of the white or rose gold triple-blade folding clasp, and you will get a feather-light device, which is a pleasure to wear and is almost not felt on a wrist!
