Swatch Art Specials

Inspired by embroidery, Sigrid Calon’s designs often begin with the horizontal and diagonal lines of perforated cardboard. She applies a simple set of rules to generate colorful grids and patterns and uses gradients available in risographic printing, a stencil-print technique, to add depth and volume.

The official Event Watch

Swatch has created a special watch for Biennale Arte 2015. The Biennale Arte 2015 watch is a striking black and white Gent called ALL THE WORLD'S FUTURES (GB743I), which is the theme of the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia. It will be available in selected stores in Italy during the exhibition period.

Swatch Faces: Find your Match
