   The Bvlgari watch industry also has a close relationship with the Bvlgari jewellery field, they together create exquisite fine jewelry watches. Watches and jewellery are areas where Bulgari excels, and they work together to achieve extraordinary results. Like complication watches, craftsmanship is also required to make jewelry watches. The gemstone components of each jewellery watch are carefully crafted by the Bulgari jewelry workshop in Valenza, Italy or the high-end jewelry workshop in Rome, according to different raw material characteristics and preciousness. This type of production uses traditional dewaxing casting, which must be cleaned, assembled by professional goldsmiths, polished all metal components, and shaped the watch components such as bracelets and gem-set bases. Every detail is paid special attention to, and each component is perfectly and closely linked to each other-this is the most basic requirement, and also ensures that the wrist can move freely when the watch is worn, and the clasp and the inlaid base are skillfully combined. In the more complicated process of setting gems, craftsmen need to have professional knowledge and skilled skills to ensure that each gem is firmly set in place. Finally, all watch components and movements were sent to the Neuchâtel watch factory for assembly. After the final rigorous inspection and control, a wonderful watch was born.
