It’s Lacroix, Darling. What to expect from a collaboration with Christian Lacroix (alias Xian Lax, derived from a phonetic spelling of his name) but a jewel-rich, garnet-red, gold-wrought work of art that says Swatch in the same breath as it says Lacroix? Ornate as a king’s regalia, Xian Lax’s Xmas (GZ140) presents a dial clasped in a pomegranate-red, translucent plastic body. The strap is elastic and assembled from cast brass segments. In place of hour and minute hands, a radiant, golden sun at the centre of the dial turns around 24 coloured crystals, indicating the preciousness of every hour and celebrating the ultimate timekeeper, the sun.
