Introducing the exquisite craftsmanship of the celebrated Italian jeweler and watchmaker to Sri Lanka, the ageless elegance of BVLGARI timepieces were unveiled at the Colombo Jewellery Stores (CJS) Flagship Store at Alfred House Gardens earlier this week. Renowned for displaying the complex art of simplicity, BVLGARI’s latest collection of timepieces, including its key brand symbol, the sculptural BVLGARI Octo Retrograde, encapsulates the contemporary luxury chic that lies at the heart of BVLGARI. The Octo Retrograde is renowned for having the world’s thinnest tourbillon and the design’s hallmark is that of purity and intuitive time reading.
In addition CJS also has BVLGARI Flagship women’s watches. The Lvcea signature collection, inspired by the eternal link of light and time, and its new masterpieces in jewellery watches, the Serpenti collection. Both the Papillon Tourbillon Central and Papillon Heure Sautante, inspired by the flight of two butterflies, are unique in the world of watchmaking. These emphasize the paradox of the infinite simplicity of hours and minutes read-off made possible by the extreme complicated process of time and measurement.
Also available at CJS is the Diagono Scuba Collection in both black and silver opalin dial with a scratch resistant sapphire glass and automatic winding.
Reiterating his strong belief in timeless elegance, CJS Chairman Akram Cassim said, “BVLGARI marries age-old craftsmanship with contemporary style. With its 130 year history of embedding the hallmark of Italian excellence, BVLGARI is known for its stylistic audacity and penchant for colour, making its timepieces distinct. Harmonising Rome’s ancient history, you can clearly see BVLGARI incorporating the city’s symbolism, while innovating its design for the future.” He also stated that Ford Model Adam Flamer-Caldera joins the award winning Bollywood film actress Jacqueline Fernandez as a CJS Brand Ambassador.
Displaying an exquisite timepiece from the Diva collection, Jacqueline elaborated that she was proud to be in Sri Lanka on a day when luxury is made greater in size and value by CJS. “I’ve always been a BVLGARI fan. This is a Brand that has become synonymous with brilliant colour, symbolic storytelling and peerless craftsmanship, three elements I totally identify with. These latest timepieces from BVLGARI embody that timeless sense of exquisite beauty.”
