Much like the reptilian creature from which it takes its name, Bulgari’s Serpenti watch has endured routine transformations since its first model debuted in the 1940s. Its latest reincarnation, the Serpenti Twist Your Time, is a more contemporary take on the Bulgari classic.

New to this collection is the use of premium snakeskin leather straps made from karung, a non-venomous water snake whose thin, soft hide earns comparisons to lizard skin. Said to be more precious and unique than regular snakeskin, karung leather undergoes a complex tanning process that results in its perfectly worn appearance.

If that doesn’t draw you in, consider that the customization process allows over 300 combinations, with choices of a steel or pink gold case, brilliant-cut diamonds set on the bezel, and dials in mother-of-pearl, sunburst guilloche, or black lacquer. Each model comes with one calfskin strap and one snakeskin strap, both available in an array of colors. Greenbelt 4, 728.5062; Solaire Resort & Casino, 800.7718; bulgari.com.
