Bulgari Serpenti Spiga

The Bulgari Serpenti Spiga is the latest iteration of Bulgari’s iconic Serpenti collection and was recently presented on the LVMH Watch Week. Rooted in the company’s history, the Serpenti originates from a 1957 wristwatch that had a blocky case attached to a modular construction bracelet. Bulgari added its signature touch of Italian romance to that inspired design and created the Serpenti, characterised by a motif that represents wisdom, vitality, and the circle of life.

Like nature that inspired it, the design and construction of the Bulgari Serpenti Spiga is full of uniqueness and immense complexity. Its bracelet is crafted from 40 different pieces from 40 different moulds – just like in nature: no two are alike.

As Bulgari so eloquently concludes: “the snake has charmed exotic beauties from Cleopatra to the Bulgari woman, and empowered them with its magnetism. Renowned for the ability to hypnotise its prey – this skill is attributed to no other animal – the snake is also famous for its means of seduction.” The 2021 Bulgari Serpenti Spiga combines that unique story with the know-how of the manufacturer’s master craftspeople. The Spiga motif resembles what it is named for: the Italian word for “wheat.”

The simple tools of the trade require unrivalled expertise and dexterity for the result to be nothing short of perfection.

A symbol of fertility and prosperity that has captivated throughout mythology and antiquity, and a theme that was often linked to marriage in ancient Rome and Greece. Once assembled, the Spiga bracelet appears an indivisible whole, the sort of beauty that also serves as a testament to the expertise required for the crafting and assembly of its delicate components.

The single-row watches comprise 40 different components from 40 different moulds, meaning that no two pieces are alike – an astonishing dedication towards the natural, asymmetrical beauty of the Spiga theme. The two-row watches feature not 40 but 70 components.
