And now for something completely different, something very affordable and fun. The new Swatch Skin Irony collection. We joined the press launch in Belgium, Antwerp to be precise where they showed us their 8 new models in style.
Swatch Skin Irony
Clean and minimalistic goes for this collection which is created in a 38mm steel case which measures under 6mm. Available with a variety of finishes, dials and straps this model should offer something for everyone. And you don’t have to be held back for the price either. Most models go over the counter for 135~145 Euro. Accept the full steel model with the gold coating which retails for 175 Euro.
The toughest SKIN comes to life in these tough yet slim designs, ready to make you shine from the office to the mountains. From casual to sporty and leather to silicone, for the Future Classics all the details count, and you will sure be ready to impress every minute of your day. Subtle and discreet, these designs are the perfect plus one for any sophisticated occasion. From light sensations to powerful style statements, the stainless steel and Swatch Sparkles will make you shine from the red carpet all the way through the best nights of your life.
During the event we had the opportunity to give them a try and you get used to them quickly. Especially the silicone straps are amongst the most comfortable you will find on a watch. Very soft and smooth so they adjust perfectly to your wrist which is the same for the metal bracelet.
Depending on your taste you can choose a brushed or shiny polished case and most models come with either a dark or light dial. Only the full metal Skin Irony watches have a dial that matches the rest of the watch, either silver/steel of gold coloured.
Prices range between 130 and 145 euro for most models accept the gold coated model which retails for 175 euro. Available right away through Swatch.
