The Tiger is the third of the 12-year cycle of animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Tiger are known for possessing traits such as power, strength, and bravery. They are charming, natural leaders and have a strong sense of justice and adventure, not to mention a rebellious streak.
The BIG BOLD’s color combination not only looks good but means good, too. The gold-toned dial with Tiger head graphic symbolizes prosperity, while the red, featured on the stopper, loops and hands, is associated with joy, luck, vitality and happiness. The black of the bio-sourced strap and BIOCERAMIC case and bezel represents immortality, knowledge, stability, and power. The case measures 47 mm and provides plenty of room for the striking and shiny tiger head graphic, created using a metalized microstructure 3D printing technique.Swatch infuses the watch with meaningful details. ‘Year of the Tiger’ is written on the bezel and the Chinese translation 虎年 is printed onto the inner strap. The striking black, gold, and red packaging, complete with the intricate Tiger illustration, also warrants a special mention.
The Chinese New Year Special will be available in Swatch stores and online from 2 December, 2021.
