Product Description

Spangled with spaceships, clouds, rockets, and stars, this Swatch art special by the fanciful French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is a wearable piece of the heavens. Vibrating with the music of the spheres, nostalgic and as magical as a child’s drawings, Space People (GN134), is an eye-catching strip of fantasy. Sea green UFOs, cool blue clouds, rose-coloured planets, and yellow moons seem to burst into view from a field of white space. A simple dial with four fields of colour balances the motion-studded strap. With its whimsy, magic, picture-book colours and dreamy conceits, this piece of fantasy captures Swatch—on a cosmic scale!
