Bulgari’s Snake-Inspired Serpenti Seduttori Watch Gets New Tourbillon

By Paul Joseph

At last year’s BaselWorld watch fair in Switzerland, iconic Italian fashion house Bulgari launched a new collection of snake-inspired timepieces called the Serpenti Seduttori.

Like most women’s watches, the original Serpenti Seduttori featured a Quartz movement, and for 2020 the brand has introduced a manual winding tourbillon movement for women which will power the new Serpenti Seduttori Tourbillon collection.

The caliber BVL150 is most notable for its tourbillon mechanism, which is a relatively uncommon feature in high-end women’s watches. With its tiny manual-winding tourbillon movement, the latest iteration of the Serpenti Seduttori is distinctly more technical and sophisticated than its predecessors.

The new Seduttori Tourbillon comes with a “snakehead” case that measures 34mm-wide and 8.9mm-thick, which is slightly bigger to make room for the tourbillon movement instead of the Quartz movement.

Bulgari has released the watch in three versions: white gold with diamonds and a leather strap; white gold with diamonds and a matching scaled bracelet; and rose gold with diamonds and a leather strap.

Bulgari is yet to announce pricing for the new Serpenti Seduttori collection.
