Fans of Swatch and BAPE, get ready!
When one of the world's most iconic streetwear brands teams up with a legendary watchmaker, you know it’s going to be something special.
To celebrate diversity, Swatch and BAPE (A Bathing Ape) have released not one but six striking limited-edition “Big Bold” watches dedicated to five of the world’s biggest capitals—London, New York, Paris, Bern, Tokyo—and one “Global” edition. All six watches feature the signature BAPE camo motifs either on the face or strap, while the tips of the hour hand and second hand are all snazzed up with the ape head logo and lightning bolt.
Other notable details include an incorporated world map in the camo patterns of the London, New York, Paris and Tokyo editions, while the numbers 3, 8 and 9 on some of the dials come in contrasting colors—a nod to 1983 and 1993, the years Swatch and BAPE were founded respectively.
The limited-edition collection will be available for purchase from Jun 15 at B4,9500. The London, Paris, New York and Tokyo editions are limited to 1,993 pieces, while the Bern city watch is limited to 983 pieces.
Here in Bangkok, all city models are available only at the Swatch flagship store, 1/F, CentralWorld. In addition, the World model will also be available at Swatch Siam Paragon and IconSiam. For more information visit www.facebook.com/swatchthailand
