Mention Swatch, and the first thought that’d cross your mind are playful and youthful watches. That mood is precisely why the brand’s tickers are our go-to brand for gifts that would please. And the F/W ’17 collection fits that to a tee.
With psychedelic ’60s prints and pop Pantone brights, the Color Studio series ($82-$260) is as much for the fashionable trendsetter as it is for the art fiend. Want something evening-appropriate? A Gala Night collection ($82-$260) includes styles with crystal-encrusted bracelets or sophisticated leopard print straps.
And those who like things minimalist, the ultra-thin SKIN line ($155-$195), first created in 1997, has been updated with a slightly curved back, and straps in trendy translucent silicone or mesh in black, rose gold or yellow gold.
Who doesn’t like a one-of-a-kind gift? A first for the brand, the Swatch X You collection ($90-$114) lets one completely customise its signature timepiece in five easy steps: Choose between a 34mm and 41mm case, then its design and colour, and select your straps, loop and pin in fun motifs such as a flying heart or cartoon star.
