- Bulgari’s has a long history of creating serpent bracelets and in the 1950’s it began adding watch dials to its creations, leading the to rich array of Serpentis on offer at Bulgari today.
- What is new is the ‘piccolissimo’ element that is in fact the smallest mechanical watch movement in the world.
- It is the first time in 50 years that the Serpenti is graced with a superior BVL100 mechanical movement, the norm being quartz for jewellery watches.
- The hand wound movement has shrunk 102 components into a case that is just over 1.2cm wide and a wafer-thin 0.25cm high.
- This coin-sized watch module is removable and it easily slides out by pushing down on the serpent’s tongue to allow the mechanism to be serviced or if it takes your fancy, to be worn on the other wrist.
- There are different versions for this watch: one in yellow and white gold with emerald eyes and 795 diamonds. Another one combines turquoise inserts with 724 diamonds. Others feature either green or black-lacquered scales rippling around the body of the serpent, the green version of which is interspersed with 396 diamonds.
