    Vintage dual signature Bvlgari Serpenti Tubogas timepieces represent the pinnacle of ladies design and watchmaking from the marque in the 1960's. Bvlgari worked with several watchmakers during the period such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Piaget. None of those are more desirable and rarer than the Vacheron-Constantin partnership. This example is all original and complete, even down to the VC signed crown.
