When a time­piece as recog­nis­able as the Bul­gari Ser­penti is in need of an up­date, the house doesn’t just look to change one or two el­e­ments like a strap colour or a sprin­kling of di­a­monds. The Twist Your Time col­lec­tion takes the sleek, ser­pen­tine watch case and trans­forms it into a jewel-like wrist charm that can slide on and off dif­fer­ent in­ter­change­able wrap­around straps.

With 312 pos­si­ble vari­a­tions, this is not a watch for the in­de­ci­sive. First, choose a case in ei­ther steel or pink gold. Di­a­monds or no di­a­monds? (We say di­a­monds, al­ways.) Then a choice be­tween black, red, green or white mother-of-pearl for the face – for ex­tra in­ter­est, each wind­ing crown is stud­ded with a cabo­chon rubel­lite.

Then the real fun: choos­ing your dou­ble wrap­around strap, ei­ther from glossy Karung skin or calf­skin. Karung is a non-ven­omous wa­ter snake known for its thin, sup­ple skin – here it’s coloured with nat­u­ral pig­ments in a metic­u­lous tan­ning process, be­fore be­ing fin­ished with a slick of var­nish. The Karung straps come in black, red, white, green or ch­est­nut brown, while the calf­skin leather straps are avail­able in sap­phire blue, agate white, ruby red, sandy beige, black or emer­ald green. And of course, there’s no rea­son to stop at just one strap. With such an eas­ily trans­formable time­piece, why would you?

Choose from dif­fer­ent shades of Karung skin or calf­skin for the strap
