SCULPTURES OF LIGHT

The Lvcea timepieces round out the LVMH Watch Week selection, speaking the language of light. Conceived and designed around this eternal theme, the new Lvcea Intarsio iterations are meant to translate, retransmit and enhance the characteristic luminescence of the distinctive Roman sky in its blue and pink pearlescence. Since its introduction, the Maison’s signature daily round watch pays homage to the sundials of ancient Rome that captured light to signal the passage of time. The new 2022 models add new colours to the palette, with their three-dimensional architectural dials crafted in materials that capture and enhance the light. Pink mother-of-pearl and aventurine compose the two new Lvcea shades ensuring maximum chromatic effect and infusing the collection with an additional jewellery touch.

Furthering a classic métiers d’art technique applied to the mother-of-pearl, each of the dials is assembled using the marquetry technique in a pattern called Intarsio. In both cases, each of the 37 mother-of-pearl and blue aventurine micro-elements are cut and then faceted by hand before being assembled according to a precise and regular geometry to form the three-dimensional surface of the dial.

This complex and refined handcrafted construction captures all the variations in light, like the skies of the Eternal City, to reproduce its full brilliance, as seen through the diamond hour-markers dotting the rims of these sophisticated dials.
