Temps Zero (GB166), heartily coloured in cadmium red, yellow, black and blue, has the visual advantage of snapping up attention through sheer intensity of colour. The dial has the hint of a human face, an implied bridge of the nose and two orbs that could be eyes. With its ambiguous central image, the watch could equally be pure formal composition, resounding with a beauty that only subtly references the light and forms of the natural world. With abstract grace and poise, this Swatch Art Special is an audacious balancing act of form and colour, a truly modern painting at the wrist.
