Product Description

Despite (GZ142), the Swatch Art Special by Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, is a pretty, feminine watch, soaked with colour and elaborated with graceful flourishes. Executed in lightweight plastic, the design has something of both high Spanish Baroque and Art Deco. The dial features interlocking, swooping white patterns set against a green and red background. Generous feathers of bright blue sit within the white forms. The strap is set with mosaic-like beading that calls to mind some extravagant church floor or tiled Spanish courtyard. Despite offers a rich and decorated look perfumed with the style of an essential and vibrant artist.
