Launched in 2016 and embodying the reptile symbol flirting with the borders of High Jewellery and Haute Horlogerie, the Serpenti Incantati line of jewellery watches testifies to the intensely adaptable nature of this design icon. Through four new 2017 versions, the powerful fascination of this watch shines and sparkles through its tourbillon movement and its jewellery settings.
Bulgari Serpenti Incantati Jewellery
By coiling around the watch dial, rather than forming the case itself, the reptile displays a particularly supple facet of its nature. For the fully jewelled version, Bulgari has specifically devised for it a cleverly articulated system ensuring a superbly smooth flow.
Visually, this creates the impression that the diamond-studded serpent is actually in motion. In concrete terms, it ensures perfect comfort and a delightfully sensual feel for the woman who slides it onto her wrist.
In its jewellery version set with brilliant-cut diamonds, the snow-set dial and bezel create a particularly refined and dainty aesthetic effect. The entire watch is naturally made of gold. The watch comes with a perfectly elegant and refined satin strap, or with a diamond-set bracelet graced with a pure design.

Bulgari Serpenti Incantati Tourbillon Lumière
Taking the collection into a whole new dimension, the Serpenti Incantati Tourbillon Lumière watches bring the magic of two enhancements cherished by Haute Horlogerie: the tourbillon regulator and skeleton-working.
The mechanical hand-wound movement crafted in gold has been finely sculpted and open-worked to allow light to pour into the heart of the watch through its sapphire crystals. It is enlivened by the central activity of the tourbillon, while its distinctive luminosity gives it a spectacular and unique sparkle that makes this precious watch truly incandescent.
