700 pieces of minui tiles are mirror-polished

You might not possess the courage now to fashion a part of your home décor in the eye-catching manner as this Ancient Rome-inspired dial made up of roughly 700 pieces of mirror-polished miniature gold squares. But this self-winding wristwatch by Bulgari, first launched in 2017, will change your mind.

The look grows on you, and after this, you might be making a mental note on future reno ideas.
