BVLGARI – SERPENTI SPIGA
The snake bites back at Bvlgari!
The signature Serpenti in Bvlgari’s ladies collections comes in two new black or white ceramic models.
Bvlgari only began exploring watchmaking in the latter half of the 20th century after over 50 years in jewellery. The Italian brand unveiled the Serpenti collection to bring watches and jewels together in one of its first timepieces. The range hasn’t stopped growing since the 1940s with a range of models and Bvlgari’s signature snake embodies the brand’s premium vision. This time the iconic model comes in black or white ceramic.
The new Serpenti Spiga glitters with rose gold and diamonds. Its curvy 35mm case has a rose gold bezel paved with brilliant-cut diamonds whilst the rose gold crown has a ceramic cabochon (black or white depending on the model). The black or white lacquer dial brings a touch of glamour to the watch. The Tubogas ceramic strap brings to mind a rippling snake’s movement, is waterproof to depths of 30m and features two rose gold details.
Serpenti Spiga is a technical challenge for the Italian brand. Making a flexible and articulated Tubogas strap in ceramic is no mean feat. Bvlgari has shaken up classic watchmaking values in this watch and injected it with a modern and sensual soul. The new ultra-feminine watch’s powers of seduction start with how soft the ceramic feels on the skin. The snake is modern and powerful. The bold yet elegant Serpenti Spiga oozes rock chic and flies in the face of classic watches.
