The legend of the High Jewellery Serpenti watches comes to life in the form of three serpent timepieces. Coiling with Bulgari creativity, the enchanting timepieces were unveiled on the occasion of the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, the most important event on the jewellery calendar.
Curling in white, yellow or pink gold, the “scales” of the snake are set with sparkling marquise or brilliant-cut diamonds and enamel. From its precious head spy seductive pear-shaped emeralds, rubies or malachites, the snake eyes that have established Serpenti as the eternal icon of the House.
Functionally beautiful, the serpent’s jaws open to reveal the time of a high-precise quartz movement. Meanwhile, these creations wrap the wrist as the first of their kind: the head-over-tail shape crosses over from High Jewellery design, becoming the first of Serpenti watches to incorporate this design feature.
