The guests were generously guided through magnificent stories – from ancient architecture through the dolce vita times and glamourous cinema flair to the consistent vision that is behind the Maison’s success, they were discovering many facets of the Bulgari universe of today, and the prominent role of timepieces with their unique blend of Italian design and Swiss watchmaking excellence.

Most sophisticated pieces of the iconic collections were on display in the refined interiors of the aristocratic « Bee » villa in the Northern Dorobanti district of Bucharest.

Those were Serpenti and Divas’ Dream watches crafted with exquisite decorative and jewelry technics, some being powered with high complications so appreciated by modern women.  A sparkling Serpenti Spiga High Jewelry full pave in white gold and hypnotizing Peacock Divas Dream became definite stars of the show.

Bulgari collections for men are of strong appeal in Romania, and there was a rich selection of Octo Finissimo line famous for breaking the molds and world records of thinness one after another for 10 years by now, awarded with many prestigious prizes, including L’Aguille d’Or (The Golden Hand) received at the last Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve, the most important “Oscar” of the watch industry.

The more you discover the big Bulgari universe, the more enchanted you feel. Day after day, distinguished guests were meeting with watch wonders that many found breathtaking, sharing impressions with their friends.
