Product Description

Beautiful Women (GZ196) exudes desire and allure, posing with the floral delicacy of a Japanese woodblock print. As sexy, feminine, and enigmatic as the tattoos for which she is known, this piece for Swatch is based on an original work by an artist inspired by both contemporary and traditional art. Here she illustrates a moment from the tale of Princess Yasha, the story of a beautiful mountain woman who turns out to be a man-eating beast. The plastic strap shows the coloured, intricate clothes worn by the princess; her face appears in the multi-toned dial. A mysterious heartbreaker, this watch is a dark ode to beautiful women.
