Seventy-five years of enchantment! Has Bulgari found the elixir of youth for its Serpenti, which constantly surprises us every time it molts? This iconic watch-yet-jewel imagined by the Roman brand, is showcased flaunting exclusive novel adornments through two unprecedented, luxurious Misteriosi variations. The first model’s backbone comprising titanium blades hosts fine white gold rings totally strewn with 116 diamonds (32.91 carats). The same precious gems, in a marquise-cut (11.9 carats) dazzle the second rose gold version set off with elegant black lacquer. The hypnotic power of both pieces is heightened even more with their intense green emerald eyes. When wrapped around the wrist, these pieces exalt any glamorous style, any seductive personality.
Ancestral practices play a key role in the Serpenti Misteriosi pieces’ exclusive identity. In a nutshell, the hexagonal scales are molded using the lost-wax casting technique, know-how that dates back over 6,000 years. Here, fine jewelry consorts with fine watchmaking. The opened case unveils a diamond-set dial. On top, the hour and minute hands meticulously tick over the time thanks to a hand-wound micro-movement. The BVL 100 Piccolissimo caliber, just 2.5 mm thick, is wound via a discreet crown placed under the reptile-shaped head and offers a power reserve of some 30 hours. For anyone who does not wish to have to regularly wind the device, the mechanism can be replaced on request by a quartz movement. Either way, this duo of new Bulgari secret watches diffuses bewitching charm. Why resist?
