Swatch is delighted to announce its sponsorship of the Swatch Women’s Pro Trestles 2014 (September 9-20, California), the seventh stop on the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour - an elite, 10-event series held around the world to determine the ASP Women’s World Champion. In addition to the Swatch Girls Pro France 2014 (August 20-24, Seignosse-Hossegor), an ASP 6-Star Qualification Series (QS) event now in its fifth year, the announcement reaffirms Swatch’s ongoing support of women’s surfing.
“We’re delighted to further our involvement in surfing to the World Championship level, and are really excited about extending the reach of our surfing events to North America” Marco Vaccari, Head of Marketing International at Swatch, said. “Women’s surfing continues to push the boundaries of performance, gaining an ever-wider audience, so we’re thrilled to further align our brand values alongside this youthful, progressive, exciting sport.”
Swatch’s title sponsorship of the event marks yet another milestone for the brand, bringing its involvement to women’s surfing at the highest level - the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour (WCT) - for the first time ever. Trestles, located in San Clemente, California, is widely regarded as one of the finest high-performance surf spots on the planet. As the epicentre of Southern California surfing, the break offers a perfect blank canvas for surfers to showcase their progressive repertoires, and as a new addition to the elite ASP Women’s World Championship Tour, provides another boost to the most exciting era in women's professional surfing ever.
Southern Californian and reigning two-time Swatch Girls Pro France winner Courtney Conlogue (Swatch Proteam) will no doubt be one of the hot favorites at Trestles, a location she knows so well. “I’m so excited that Swatch is bringing the Trestles event to the WCT,” Conlogue said. “I can’t wait to surf against all the best women surfers in the world at one of my all-time favorite spots, in front of all my friends and family.”
The inaugural Swatch Girls Pro France was held in Seignosse-Hossegor in 2010, while in 2011, Swatch made history by bringing international professonial surfing to China for the very first time with the Swatch Girls Pro China. In 2014, surf fans will witness the addition of the inaugural Swatch Women's Pro Trestles. Alongside the fifth edition of the Swatch Girls Pro France, the two unmissable events are set to further elevate women’s professional surfing to new heights.

Sara Hochuli 是苏黎世（瑞士）最富盛名的糕点主厨和 Maître de 巧克力制作大师。在 Swatch 2014 年春季系列中，她创造了 DREAMCAKE（梦幻蛋糕），这是一款引人注目的 Swatch 糕点主厨特献。
什么是芳香？它不仅仅是一种味道，更是一种感觉，是各种愉悦的来源，而且别有洞天。这个领域的大师们是糕点主厨 - 带来秘密愉悦的艺术家、魔术师和巫师。瑞士的 Sara Hochuli 是其中最好的一家，因此 Swatch 向 Sara 寻求将芳香和愉悦相结合的大师级艺术。她从小就开始烘焙和烹饪，是训练有素的图形艺术家和设计师，对日本的一切都充满好奇和激情。她在自己位于苏黎世的餐厅 Les Gourmandises de Miyuko 出售自己的艺术品。
Miyuko 是 Sara 创作的人物，与她的朋友生活在虚拟的东京，将毕生都贡献给了咖啡馆，而且激发制作纯正而美味的甜品。她还是引导 Sara 为 Swatch 粉丝烹饪特殊菜品的缪斯。DREAMCAKE 是 Swatch 糕点主厨特献，由 Sara 设计出来并与 Swatch 协作将其变为现实，灵感毫无疑问来自她对日本的热爱。它代表着春天樱花盛开的颜色，看起来就像是 Sara 咖啡馆出品的一块蛋糕。它采用玫瑰碗和樱花装扮，借助蛋糕切刀和刀叉在钟面上指示时间，而且玫瑰带在玫瑰花环上拥有精美的粉红色鲜花。
这款手表不仅看起来像 Sara Hochuli 的蛋糕之一，其特殊包装看起来也像一块蛋糕。对于所有烹饪艺术家、朋友和其作品的粉丝而言，Sara 纳入了她的一款蛋糕配方。它印制在特殊包装上。试用一下吧 — 一切皆关乎芳香和愉悦。

With SISTEM51, Swatch has opened up an exciting new world. The first mechanical movement ever to be made not by hand, but on a fully-automated assembly line, SISTEM51 was presented to an astonished watch industry in April of this year. Now, the first four models are here, and the voyage of discovery can begin!
There is much to explore in this intriguing new world. Unprecedented technological innovation (17 pending patents) enabled the development, in less than two years, of a self-winding mechanical movement with only 51 components in five modules. SISTEM51 is 100 percent Swiss made and features an exceptional 90 hour power reserve. Hermetically sealed within its case, the 3 Hz movement delivers precise, long-lasting, maintenance-free performance.
SISTEM51 opens up a universe of beauty, too. The dial side reveals six of the movement's 19 rubies, and from the back one gazes through a transparent oscillating weight into the heart of this fascinating microcosm. Design is a key part of the Swatch DNA, and SISTEM51 extends its reach into the innovative depths of the movement itself. The visible surfaces of the movement's five modules present a new canvas, a new field of creative expression for graphic designers and contemporary artists.
The first four models set out to discover SISTEM51's expressive potential.

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 …!

The Swatch Proteam, led by veteran ace Kilian Braun, came out on top in the ferocious battle against the International Gladiators, led by reigning world champion Kyle Croxall of Canada. “The Team Challenge is a new competition and it’s great to be the first team to win it. It’s awesome! For the crowd it’s cool to see six riders on the track at the same time… there are more hits, more battles. It’s a lot of fun!” Kilian Braun In the thrill-packed final on Saturday, Killian Braun battled down the treacherous 460-meter long ice track in front of 35,000 spectators and finished 3rd behind second-year man Cameron Naasz of the United States and defending champion and winner Kyle Croxall from Canada.
