SERPENTI INCANTATI TOURBILLON LUMIÈRE, A BEWITCHING INTERPRETATION CELEBRATING THE UNION OF HAUTE HORLOGERIE AND HIGH JEWELLERY
Blending Bulgari’s finest jewelry and watchmaking know-how, Serpenti Incantati Tourbillon Lumière gives a new lease on life to the snake symbol, the unmistakable signature of the Rome-based Maison. After coiling around the wrist, the snake is now reinvented by wrapping itself for the very first time around the case of a round watch: the reptile literally twines itself around the watch dial, framing an entirely skeleton-worked Manufacture tourbillon calibre. This airily graceful movement is a work of art: the mainplate and bridges are crafted in pink gold, the flanks are straight-grained, the rims and sinks are all chamfered and systematically polished. Circular graining and snailing set the finishing touches to this precious craftsmanship, contributing to a spectacular result.
This timepiece is available as a rare and exclusive creation, issued as a limited 50-piece edition.
