Every year Bulgari’s master artisans create a small collection of superb, one-of-a-kind high-jewelry watches. The Roman jeweler is known for scouring the Earth to find the finest gemstones for its masterpieces, and this Magnifica watch is representative of the brand’s meticulous and highly artistic work. For this secret watch (whose top flips open to reveal the watch dial beneath), Bulgari turns to the finest diamonds and rubies — topping the cover piece with a stunning antique cushion-cut Mozambique ruby that weighs 6.3 carats alone. The entire platinum watch case, dial and bracelet (which takes more than 1,600 hours to set) feature 48 baguette-cut rubies, 146 baguette-cut diamonds, three brilliant-cut diamonds and a pavé-set diamond dial. The watch in its entirety weighs just over 40 carats. It is powered by a quartz movement.
