Bulgari: Serpenti Misteriosi High Jewellery Watch

Bulgari Serpenti Misteriori High Jewellery Watch. A new and intriguing secret watch that brings the excellence of jewellery craftsmanship on your wrist.

A presence that enchants on the wrist. Bulgari’s Serpenti Misteriosi High Jewellery watch pushes jewellery craftsmanship to the limit.

 

Empowered by fascinating myths, an emblem of wisdom, rebirth and vitality, and an ornament and talisman. The symbol of the serpent has been a source of iconographic fascination since the dawn of time.

Bulgari was one of the first twentieth-century jewellers to turn this millenary motif into a watch timepiece.

In the very stylised models of the late 1940s, the supple body was of polished yellow gold, either in flexible Tubogas bands or a gold mesh. Then, the serpent Tubogas versions explored every possible shape of the case and dial, while materials ranged from gold to steel.

In the 1960s, the serpents’ numerous separate elements simulated the reptile’s scales with its head concealing the watch case.

In the 1970s, the Tubogas technique provided the Bulgari snake watches with a cutting-edge look.

Whether in a realistic or geometrically abstract manner, the snake winds along Bulgari’s history as an embodiment of its hallmarks: love for colour, juxtaposing materials, unmistakable wearability and state-of-the-art goldsmith techniques.

For more than seven decades, Serpenti has shed its skin in countless different ways, the better to wrap itself around the wrist of the most celebrated female icons. Women and Serpenti‘s destinies are inextricably entwined.

 

Serpenti Misteriosi High Jewellery: pushing the boundaries of jewellery.

 

Nonetheless, the symbol can also be entirely renewed and take on an appearance pushing, for six long months, the boundaries of jewellery-making feasibility.

Serpenti Misteriosi, a stunning one-of-a-kind creation in white gold, is a “secret” wristwatch featuring the first ever double-headed snake design – a tribute to the dangerous beauty of the Maison’s signature creature.
