Looking for a new watch that you won’t see on the arms of many other people? Luxury Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has designed a “Year of the Snake” luxury watch for the next Chinese New Year.

This watch’s unique look and design is already catching eyes all over the world, with the hand engraved snake on the face of this one-of-a-kind time piece.

The engraved snake fixed in the center of the face comes in a choice of metal-gold, platinum or bronze. Described by the brand as “hands-free,” the watch relies on four windows which tell the second, minute, hour, and day.

The Chinese year of the snake begins on February 10, 2013, which gives lucky customers plenty of time to hunt down one of Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin’s Métiers d’art specially conceived models.

The watch is available in two versions, 18-carat rose gold or platinum on a 40 mm diameter hull, and sits on a Mississippi alligator strap.

The timepieces are available as a limited edition with only 12 examples of each model, all featuring ’2013′ engraved on the back. Watches can only be purchased in Vacheron Constantin boutiques, with prices upon request.
