    LOOKING FAB! SWATCH LEAPS AHEAD TO SPRING - SUMMER COLLECTION 2014

    Swatch makes a run for the sun with a brilliant assortment of new models in its Spring - Summer Collection 2014. Arresting interpretations of contemporary trends and fashion themes give rise to eye-popping, exciting designs. The collection begins with the Classic theme, inspired by ideals of enduring elegance and beauty.
    Next up is Pastry Chefs, filled to overflowing with the soft, sweet colors of a candy shop. Summer Classics follows, a luminous theme lit by all sorts of shining, metallic surfaces. Spring then takes a very trendy turn in For the Love of Patterns, a fascinating theme illustrating the explosive diversity of micro-patterns and fabric prints.

    Summer crashes in on the beaches of Islands Galore with a blast of bright colors and exhilarating energy. Finally, just up from the beach, the city’s heating up with Le Swatch Dream Urban, which says you look best in trend-wise camouflage and vibrant, post-modern collages.

    SWEETNESS AND (DE)LIGHT: THE SWATCH PASTRY CHEFS SPECIAL FROM SARA HOCHULI

    Sara Hochuli is a most extraordinary pastry chef and Maître Chocolatier from Zurich (Switzerland). For the Swatch Spring 2014 Collection she has created DREAMCAKE, the spectacular Swatch Pastry Chefs Special.

    What is sweet? Not exactly a taste, it’s more like a sensation, a source of endless and varying pleasures and a universe all its own. The masters of this universe are pastry chefs—artists, magicians, conjurers of secret delights. Switzerland's Sara Hochuli is one of the best, so Swatch turned to Sara for a master class in the art of mixing sweetness and light. She's been baking and making things ever since she was a child, is a trained graphic artist and designer with a passion for all things Japanese. She sells her art in her cafe in Zurich, Les Gourmandises de Miyuko.

    Miyuko is a character Sara invented who lives in a virtual Tokyo with her friends, gives life to the cafe and inspires the making of real, very tasty sweets. She is also the muse who led Sara to create a special treat for Swatch fans. DREAMCAKE, the Swatch Pastry Chefs Special, dreamed up by Sara and made real in collaboration with Swatch, is unmistakably inspired by her love for Japan. It's the color of cherry blossoms in spring, and looks just like a cake from Sara's cafe. It's decorated with a rose bow and cherry blossoms, has a cake knife and a fork to tell time on the dial, and the rose strap features a delicate pink flower on the rose loop.

    Not only does the watch look like one of Sara Hochuli’s cakes, it comes in a Special Packaging that looks like one, too. And for all culinary artists, friends and fans of her work, Sara has included a recipe for one of her cakes. It’s printed on the Special Packaging. Try it—it’s all sweetness and delight.

    WELCOME CHINESE NEW YEAR! SWATCH JOINS CELEBRATIONS AROUND THE WORLD

    January 31st, 2014, brings the first day of the Year of the Horse, and Swatch joins Chinese communities around the world in celebrating Chinese New Year. Horses play a legendary role in Chinese history and culture.
    As one story goes ....

    A long time ago there lived a kind of horse on the vast lands of Eurasia. It is said that this horse is almost 3 meters high, that it has a long neck and looks very tall and sturdy. Apart from his body there are two separate wings with a ring of colorful hair at the edge. When it cranes its neck and utters a long and loud cry, the voice is quite pleasant and powerful. Thus people gradually came to use “the air of this horse” to describe an extraordinarily healthy person and deliver his positive energy.

    The upcoming Chinese New Year festivities will see fantastic and inspiring horses of all kinds as colorful parades wind through the streets. Horses are everywhere in China's art, too, and have inspired the design of the Chinese New Year Special from Swatch, YEAR OF THE HORSE. The design recalls traditional Chinese drawing and calligraphy with its inky black brush strokes and watery grays on white ground, and its dynamic impressions of horses in motion are a fitting tribute to the Year of the Horse.

    WE LOVE LOVE—VALENTINE'S DAY CANDY FROM SWATCH

    SWEET VALENTINE is a heartfelt explosion, a confession, a revelation of how you feel. It's a message with an invitation—try me, taste me, let your love bubble up to the surface. You'll be swept away on a merry-go-round, you and your sweetheart—hang on for the ride!

    SWEET VALENTINE (SUOZ168) is covered with red and white candy cane stripes. Running straight up and down on the strap and the case, they bend to form a heart at the center of the dial. And to make sure your Sweetheart gets the message, there's a transparent, wide-open heart engraved on the inside of the glass. From the heart at the center the stripes run over the case to the strap and on under the bright red loop to the buckle.

    IT WAS 30 YEARS AGO TODAY ...

    SWATCH MARKS THREE DECADES OF THE WATCH THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
    March, 2013. The watch that changed the world was born 30 years ago. March 1, 1983, the first 12 models made their debut. Looking back now, they seem unlikely heroes, but events soon revealed their true  identity: they were the avant-garde, the shock troops of a revolution named Swatch. Today, after three decades of sly wit, audacious innovation, playful provocation and inexhaustible joie de vivre, Swatch has every reason to celebrate. Those first 12 watches from 1983 have been followed by millions, and now there is one that brings it all back to mind — the impossible, incredible story of Swatch: SWATCH Est. 1983 (SUOZ161). A New Gent, SWATCH Est. 1983 features a transparent plastic case and strap and a skeleton dial offering a clear view of the movement within. Key components are highlighted in gold; on one, a golden driving wheel, the word CELEBRATE appears twice, in black. And printed in gold on a broad silver band are all those extraordinary years, from 1983 to 2013. Each year brings back memories of one or another fantastic Swatch watch: a POP, Scuba 200, heavy-metal Irony, colourful Gent, seductive Skin or high-tech Touch — not to mention those amazing creations by artists, athletes, fashion designers and — who could possibly forget? — the first Swatch watch you ever owned …!
