This unique piece, the most valuable ever from the Italian brand, is one of the contenders for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, in the Jewellery category.

The magnificent Serpenti Misteriosi Romani secret watch echoes Bulgari’s Roman roots, emblematic of ancient gladiators and antique jewels. As sensuous as its inspiration, the cuff features a snake sinuously coiled around it. To reinforce the theme, the cuff is embellished with baguette-cut diamond scales, so that the wrist inhabits the design and becomes part of the snake itself. Truly spectacular, this one of a kind creation is the most expensive high-end timepiece ever made by Bulgari, comprising a massive number of precious stones — the snakehead is crowned with a 10-carat Sri Lankan sapphire and a total of more than 60 carats of diamonds and 35 carats of sapphires form the snake’s body and scales.
