GOLDEN MERRY is not for the faint hearted; it celebrates the Swatch icon DIE GLOCKE and gives the Swiss traditional art of paper cutting a festive glow-up. This Holiday Special seamlessly blends symbols of Switzerland and holiday cheer. Embroidered holly on the watch strap meets golden trimmings with fringing and bells. Festive lights decorate the edge of the dial, which is adorned with lace-like silhouettes of mistletoe, fir trees, a Swiss chalet, and of course, Santa blowing an alphorn to make the reindeer dance. The case and glass are made from biosourced material.
No Swatch Holiday Special is complete without standout packaging, and GOLDEN MERRY delivers on this and more. The watch is presented on a gold-colored card disc that features the same papercut-inspired design as the dial. And a surprise awaits as the reverse of the packaging includes six glittery ornaments to hang on the holiday tree.
The Holiday Collection includes a Swatch first with the new combination of BIOCERAMIC material and crystals for three GENT BIOCERAMIC models. The effect? Intense sparkle with a cool and modern finish. SPARKLE NIGHT, PERFECT PLUM and SPARKLE SHINE have a striking moon-like crater appearance with crystals and mirrored holes punctuating the opaque dial.
Always game to try new things, Swatch created an eye-catching new three-dimensional shimmering effect on the SKIN IRONY 38 models by fixing crystals to the glass, not the dial. Swatch’s love for playfulness and love for mixing things up can be found in the different watch straps. BRIGHT BLAZE has a crisp and minimalist white leather strap and DARK SPARK is more mysterious and tactile with a black leather strap in a velvet finish. GLEAM TEAM provides a pop of color with a blue pearlized finish on the leather strap that will reflect the festive lights beautifully.
