Last month, the ladies of the Golden Globes sparkled in gold, but we couldn’t help but notice presenter Naomi Watts’ stunning Bulgari Serpenti timepiece. You don’t see a lot of women’s watches at award shows, but we predict that based on the buzz about the gorgeous gold snake winding its way around Watts’ wrist, that is going to change.
The Serpenti watch collection is based on Bulgari’s famous snake motif—first introduced in the 1940s. According to Bulgari, the figure of the reptile symbolizes eternal youth and immortality—which seems entirely appropriate for Los Angeles. Watts’ 18-karat gold double coil bangle also pays tribute to Bulgari’s bendy Tubogas bracelet, which was introduced in the 1970s.
While Watts’ watch is vintage Hollywood glamour, off the red carpet it has a real street style vibe—we can picture it paired with one of those Peruvian capes all the editors were wearing in Paris last month. It’s a statement watch but a versatile one. Its customized Swiss quartz movement won’t set a gearhead’s heart fluttering, but its legendary styling makes it a must-have for any watch wardrobe.
