Swatch and Art

Right from the start, Swatch has been connected with contemporary art. Like the pop art of the modern times, Swatch watches were inspired by popular culture, and Swatch itself soon became a canvas for world famous artists, musicians and fashion designers.

It is nothing but logical, that Swatch contributes to contemporary art by offering a unique space for creating art in one of the world’s most captivating cities: The Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai.
