WATCH WATCH: BVLGARI Serpenti Karung watch with interchangeable strap
This edition of WATCH WATCH brings looks at Bulgari’s iconic Serpenti watch with interchangeable Karung snakeskin straps for infinite customisation possibilities.
Interchangeable Karung snakeskin straps
The most recent metamorphosis of the Serpenti is right on cue with the current trend for customisation. With a new selection of five exotic, interchangeable double wrap-around straps, the Serpenti can shed its skin as many times as its owner sees fit.
In keeping with the reptile’s true nature, the new straps are made from Karung, the skin of a non-venomous water snake much appreciated for its small scales and suppleness. Following the tanning process, the snakeskin becomes extremely soft and smooth to the touch and is in turn dyed with natural pigments to complement the vibrant colours of the dial.
Available in 27mm pink gold or stainless steel cases, with or without brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel, the new Serpenti comes with different coloured dials ranging from mother-of-pearl and black lacquer to sunburst guilloché patterns and rich greens and reds.
Infinite customisation possibilities
To change the strap, Bulgari has developed an easy-to-use fastening system that even a child could master, giving its owner maximum liberty to personalise her watch.
Taking customisation one step further, clients will be able to choose the material of the case, explore gem-setting and engraving options, select the colour of the dial and even visualise the Serpenti’s transformation with an app designed by Bulgari.
