While the annual Baselworld is a chance for brands to showcase their most innovative timepieces, it can also be an opportunity to highlight the artistry of the traditional wristwatch. Such is the case with Bulgari’s Piccola LVCEA and Piccola CATENE. These two ladies’ timepieces, which Bulgari calls “gourmet watches,” are mini-jewelry watches meant for daily wear. Their allure comes from their practicality and elegant design rather than the latest cutting-edge technology. Both models are accented with pink or white gold and diamonds. The Piccola LVCEA comes with a 23 mm case, while the Piccola CATENE is a mini-sized version with a 22 mm case.
