Bulgari Serpenti 7 Coils Ladies Watch
The Italian jeweler once again upgrades its Bulgari Serpenti collection of snake-shaped watches, now increasing the total number of precious coils to seven.
Judging by the look of it, the new watch is going to be very long, embracing a better part of an average-sized female forearm.
As the previous versions, the new Bulgari Serpenti 7 Coils combines the signature “woven” Tubogas bracelet with a simple watch in an elegant case shaped like a snake’s head.
The process of creating the Tubogas bracelet is unique, time-consuming and requires a great amount of skilled labor.
Also, the Italian brand points out that the bracelet of this particular model takes around 35 meters of rose gold braid: some five meters per coil.
To better match the precious metal, Bvlgari has also set the case with more than two hundred diamonds totaling at 1.11 carats: 38 brilliant-cut gems for the rim and 190 more diamonds for the silvered dial.
Unfortunately, inside this beautiful head beats a simple Swiss quartz movement. Well, I hope that one day we will see the trinket featuring a real manufacture-made mechanical caliber. Just to match all the gold and diamonds.
The watch will be presented next month during the Baselworld 2011 international show.
