The snake was always one of the favorite themes of Bulgari. Since the 1950s, Bulgari has designed snake watch-bracelet in a variety of colour combinations, but undoubtedly the great success came with the introduction of the polychrome enamel or gemstone versions. Since then, the 'Serpenti' has been an emblem of the jewellery house, celebrated through books, events and new collections.
Although a variety of snake watches have appeared in public, the present version in black, white and translucent green enamel over textured background, is amongst the rarest.
Today's "Serpenti" watch collection is the contemporary reinterpretation of one of Bulgari's most famous icons. The figure of the reptile is a symbol of eternal youth and immortality in the mythological bestiary. It is an integral and long-established part of the aesthetic universe of the celebrated Italian jeweller, consistently appearing in Bulgari's most striking creations.
