The siren song of this sun-drenched Swatch is truly irresistible. Sea-blue stripes promenade down the sand-coloured strap, reiterating the costume of the sailor who, alongside a golden-tressed mermaid, poses alluringly amid sea-spray and sunshine in the centre of the dial. Sexy and salty as the French duo's popular photography, the compass-framed design by Pierre et Gilles is inked with a photograph that has been hand-painted and retouched, in the artists' signature method of combining painting with photography. All in all, La Sirène et le Marin (GZ161) is a magical piece, a memento for collectors of seashells, art, and fashion watches all. The work was commissioned to celebrate the post-renovation re-opening of the Centre Georges Pompidou in 2000.
