Two symbols of Bulgari’s exceptional fine watchmaking skill come together for the very first time to create a timepiece that is poised to become a mainstay on the wrists of contemporary women everywhere. The new Bulgari Lvcea Tubogas, unveiled at Baselworld 2018 alongside other novelties from the brand is already a classic in its own right.
Derived from ‘luce’ the Latin word for light, the Bulgari Lvcea was first launched in 2014, and soon became the go-to watch for every woman with a taste for the finer things in life. Another unmistakeable icon of the brand is the elegantly simple, yet unmistakably fashionable Tubogas bracelet, named for the humble Italian gas pipe on which it is modeled.
The Bulgari Tubogas bracelet is fashioned from a series of tubular rings which form a seamless coil snaking up the arm of its wearer. This year, for Baselworld 2018, Bulgari has introduced the Lvcea Tubogas, incorporating the sensual Tubogas bracelet onto the classic Lvcea case.
Shine a Light
True to its name, the Lvcea Tubogas celebrates the magnificence of the sun by representing a sundial through its luminescent mother-of-pearl or lacquer and diamond dials. Available in two case sizes, 28mm and 33mm respectively, the Lvcea Tubogas has been presented in a total of 5 distinct models.
The 28mm Lvcea Tubogas is powered by a quartz movement, while the 33mm version features a mechanical automatic movement developed in-house by Bulgari. Both, the 28mm and 33mm versions are available with a stainless steel Tubogas bracelet and black laquer dial or a stainless steel and rose gold Tubogas bracelet with a mother-of-pear dial.
The most opulent of the new Lvcea Tubogas timepieces is one we’d love to wear from day through to night with its 33mm rose gold case and diamond set bezel and diamonds on the rose gold bracelet.
All the models of the Lvcea Tubogas include diamond hour markers and the Lvcea collection’s signature cabochon-cut gemstone on the crown. It’s no secret that we love all things Bulgari, but the Lvcea Tubogas deserves a standing ovation.
