Swatch x Colourshift

History, milestones, personalities, myths, icons…culture meets design and art in these small, colorful filigreed and highly adorned pieces of paper. Banknotes have been an integral part of our day-to-day life and it is about time to celebrate their beauty and evolving rarity.

With currencies’ growing tendency to become more and more virtual, Swatch seizes the opportunity to pay tribute to these beautiful stories printed on paper – before they clear their way to convenience. In her work, British artist Justine Smith explores the concept of money and how it touches almost every aspect of our lives: “For me, it is like working with an elemental force which impacts upon all of us in a political, social and moral level. A banknote can be seen as a little piece of propaganda, a cipher portraying specific aspects of a given state.”

More than the stylistic reference, the use of banknotes creates a strong and tangible connection between people and the artworks. Her Swatch Art Special COLOURSHIFT was inspired by bitcoin codes, and engages with the never-ending shift from physical to digital money. “I liked the idea of making by hand something that would normally be created digitally – COLOURSHIFT stands for the changing spectrum and shift we are now experiencing.” Enjoy discovering which color bit comes from where – and find out what the color stripes stand for…

Swatch Fall-Winter 2018 Collection

Telling stories of an ancient past and a faraway future and proving that reinvention is the best form of innovation while triggering both imagination and senses is the essence of Swatch’s latest Fall-Winter collection. The three different themes link urban trends with local handcraft, bright colors with simple designs and understated style with statement pieces, adding up to a powerful selection that proves to be as playful, colorful and joyful as ever.

In an ever-connected world, distance is shortened to a tap-away. The world is your neighborhood, a phenomenon that Worldhood puts on the wrist in many different ways inspirations from all over the globe have found their place in this collection, where fantasy becomes reality, well-known ideas mix with new states of mind, and art is in cahoots with handcraft. World-famous museums have opened their archives and paved the way for a swatchy recreation of historical art pieces; seem-to-be knitted watches make a contemporary wink to one’s own heritage; black-and-white models focus on the raw and substantial design, adding the story of the brand and sophisticated brushing techniques.

More color, more fun, more fantasy. Think Fun fully embraces the DNA of Swatch, where colors, shapes and stripes explode into vibrant designs. Bold styles go well with simplistic geometries; precious Swarovski stones set a glamorous tone on discreet-colored watches; pins and patches meet and mingle on denim looks. The red carpet is rolled out for Deep Wonder that makes colors shine with intensity and shades glitter into the night. Lavish colors mix with premium and alcantara materials, and sparkling crystals. It’s time to shine!
