Every year Swatch celebrates the Chinese New Year by creating a special-edition watch and for 2013 – the year of the snake – it has produced The Legend of White Snake.
Part of the Originals New Gent collection, it features a multicoloured snake weaving its way across a white silicone strap. Even the hour and minute hands of the watch are in the form of snakes, curling and twisting as if they are in motion.
The Legend of White Snake comes coiled up in a transparent case with bright floral packaging, just waiting to be charmed on to someone’s wrist this new year.
