    About Tubogas design

    A distinctive aesthetic of Tubogas was obtained from the gas pipes design. Bulgari adopted this look in 1940s with the help of Carlo Weingrill, who contributed his designer’s vision to the cause. As the name implied, the Tubogas style is flexible and adaptable to any jewelry form, from rings to watches. The actual tubogas technique, which was a plumbing manufacturing process, came from the 19th century. This technique required wrapping metal in tight coils around a central rode that was later removed, allowing to make a hollow chain. In the 1940s this process inspired a few French makers and Bulgari (in collaboration with Weingrill) to massively use this principle in jewelry making. The Tubogas technique was used for the famous Bulgari watch series called Serpenti. It symbolizes snake, a widely popular element in ancient Roman culture.
