Bulgari’s Serpenti Misteriosi is a lesson in jewelry timepieces executed perfectly

When it comes to jewelry-style watches, Bulgari has demonstrated time and time again that they are among the frontrunners. The house is well known for their unendingly elaborate Serpenti watches that incorporate diamonds, precious metals and gems and creative designs. This year, the brand’s Serpenti Misteriosi appears to be inspired by the mythological amphisbaena – a snake with two heads, one at each end.

Bulgari’s amphisbaena is made from 18k white gold and is covered with diamonds. Of its two heads, one conceals within its mouth a watch with hour and minute functions. The watch is powered by a Bulgari B033 quartz movement, but let’s be honest, nobody is here for the movement. We’re here to be dazzled by the pave diamonds on the body and the snake’s four emerald eyes. On both heads are small designs created from diamonds and emeralds.

This watch is as red carpet ready as they come. Serpenti watches are not uncommon on the red carpet and with the Oscars on everybody’s radar, we can’t help but hope that some wily stylist snags this gorgeous piece of arm candy for their client. Check out other fiery jewelry watches here and here.
