The art of feather marquetry was perfected by the ancient Egyptians and Mayans long before Renaissance artisans adopted it. Because it requires a stupendous amount of hand work by the most skilled craftsmen, it was lost to time. Bulgari’s Divas’ Dream Peacock Collection brings back this lost art in a manner that would astound the ancients. Comprised of a trio of distinct designs, each Divas’ Dream Peacock Watch is handcrafted in exquisite detail. The artisan begins by choosing two dozen peacock feathers from a selection of hundreds. Each feather is then steamed to reveal its full palette of colors before being trimmed and then attached to the laser-cut dial. The dials and bracelets are crafted from gold and fine leather and then adorned with hand-selected diamonds. Each timepiece is the result of hundreds of hours spanning many weeks of effort. As a result, no two are exactly the same, adding to the uniqueness of the already exotic series. In addition to being a breathtaking piece of art, each Divas’ Dream Peacock is an accurate, reliable timepiece, powered by a Bulgari BVL movement; Bulgari.com.
