No matter how many times you've seen pictures from the city, or films that take place there, nothing can prepare you for Venice in the springtime. It absolutely sparkles with sunshine and bubbles with excitement. And there's no better place to sit back and take in the sights and sounds of the city than Piazza San Marco. St. Mark's Square is truly one of the great European urban spaces, where you can still hear individual voices over the rush of traffic.
This also happens to be where I got the idea for the Petalo, a genuine Italian Murano glass bangle watch that would feel right at home in Venice.
Inspired by the amazing 15th-century clock tower that rises over the square, we're excited to offer the Petalo Murano Bangle Watch. This horological beauty is adorned with incredible handmade genuine Murano glass flowers that have been created in the age-old style called Millefiori (Italian for “one thousand flowers”). Using an extremely time-intensive process of heating, stretching, and cutting long delicate glass tubes, artisans crafted the beautiful blooms around the outside of the dial.
But that's not all the Petalo has to offer. Its face shimmers with luminous mother of pearl, and its gold and silver toned spring-hinged band add that extra element of style that only the Italians could conceive. It's time to bring a bit of Venice to you!
