Bulgari’s self-proclaimed icon of seduction, the Serpenti Seduttori has an undeniable allure, both on and off the wrist.
The latest reimagining of this cult favourite from the Italian brand, which has been in the collection in one form or another since the 1940s, is sleek and contemporary.
Yet, still very much embodies the spirit of its predecessors. The drop-shaped case, reminiscent of the head of a serpent, is beautifully-shaped and pleasingly thin.
Dripping with diamonds, it cuts a dazzling figure on the wrist. Inside a quartz movement powers the sword-shaped hour and minute hands, which pass over baton index markers and the Roman numerals 6 and 12.
The real surprise, however, comes in the form of the new integrated bracelet, the design of which has been inspired by the supple body of a snake.
Formed of scales created from gold or steel hexagonal links, it blends comfort with high fashion to stunning effect.
