Serpenti Keeps Its Date With Changing Times
With the new Serpenti watches, Bulgari pays a perfect tribute to its iconic and arguably most popular line. The Serpenti is based on the symbolism of a seductive serpent, which represents wisdom, vitality, and eternal regeneration, as it constantly sheds its skin and takes on another with time. The renewed models transcend the Serpenti’s traditional jewelled universe by adopting a new, chic, and youthful expression, with the classic coiled strap and the world of colours. The watches now come in double-wraparound Karung or calfskin leather. Women can choose from a myriad of colours for their leather strap. For the millennial women who are continuously looking at reinventing themselves with avant-garde fashion trends to express their individuality, these new Serpenti timepieces will be the perfect answer to channel their inner divas. Retaining the classic Serpenti charm and functionality, the evolved Serpenti timepieces in 27mm dials take the desire of transformation in the luxury line to a new hilt.
Behind The Beauty Of Bulgari
With Bulgari, it’s safe to say that it’s a forever kind of love affair. If Rome is synonymous with style and decadence, the world of Bulgari is the undisputed pinnacle of La Dolce Vita glamour that resonates in Rome, having witnessed it first-hand at the heart of Bulgari in Rome and Switzerland. Capturing the Italian exuberance and glamour, I had the opportunity to step into the brand’s iconic store in Via Dei Condotti 10 that captures Rome in its full glory, and houses the brand’s historic gems sported by some of the most glittering array of people on the planet. And it indeed was love at first sight! Flirting with the realms of high jewellery and hautehorology, Bulgari timepieces are a labour of love that are born out of impeccable and meticulous watchmaking processes, crafted out of their several state-of-the-art watch manufacturing facilities in Neuchatel and La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland.
The massive state-of-the art production unit – the Manufactuire de Haute Horlogerie – is known to be the movement pool, where all technical components are produced under one roof for all mid- to high-end complicated watches. The dial making and design department in La Chaux-De-Fonds translates the design genius onto the watches, where only one master watchmaker works solely on a single timepiece. Les Ateliers unit at the Le Sentier facility is truly an artistic storehouse and an exclusive hand-decoration unit. Here, one can witness the true passion of the skilled watchmakers working minutely on each part – rubbing, polishing, and shaping every single watch component to achieve the perfect harmony of aesthetics and technical know-how. Only a peek into the dazzling world of Bulgari and their fine watch manufacturing facilities can reaffirm your confidence in the brand as the ultimate keepers of fine watchmaking. You would see them as the masters of the art of breathing life and colour into their pièces de résistance, with jewels sourced from around the world.
The Serpenti Story
The Serpenti motif was first adopted in the 1940s and ever since, Bulgari has continuously found new ways of adapting the style to suit newer tastes. The master craftsmen at Bulgari immortalised the snake motif by presenting it on ergonomic gold Tubogas bracelet, which marked the advent of Bulgari’s successful watch and jewellery journey. Recreating the reptilian grace, the various incarnations of Serpenti are hailed as the perfect combination of audacity and elegance, turning it into one of the most recognisable and alluring motifs in the watch and jewellery world.
A symbol of eternal regeneration…if this isn’t the epitome of shedding skin and diving straight into the future, then what is!
