Cool Jewelry : Bulgari Snake Watches

I saw a recent magazine ad for this snake inspired watch by Bulgari:

What I like most about this watch is that it is pretty simple in it’s design, and the appearance of a snake was achieved with relatively few clues. I mean really, what makes this watch look so snake-like? 1: the wrap style of the band. 2: the shape of the watch face. Genius. It made me think of an important lesson from art school: how much information do you need to give someone for them to see your idea? The answer is often: less than you think.

These other Bulgari snake watches are decidedly more snake-like in their details. I personally like these silvery diamond encrusted versions more, but they’re all a lot of fun.
