Not just plastic and quartz for Swatch

Non solo plastica e quarzo per Swatch

Who expected from Swatch a mechanical skeleton watch? By now, the House that has become famous with its cheap plastic quartz watches is in a constant state of renewal, and this is demonstrated by these two sophisticated timepieces for him and her, produced in limited editions of 130 and 50 respectively. The new Diaphane One "Turn 2 Him" and "Turn 2 Her" models reveal the finishes and components of the 25-jewel movement, which is also visible from the back, on the dial side.

"Turn 2 Him" has a transparent black plastic case and a matt and polished white gold bezel engraved with the limited edition number on a white gold plate at 6 o'clock. The hour markers are indicated by twelve black screws on the brushed white gold flange that frames the movement. At 6 o'clock is the small seconds display. The strap is in crocodile leather. Price: 6,500 euros.

"Turn 2 Her" has a transparent plastic case with a pink gold bezel set with 43 diamonds totalling 1.5 carats. The number that distinguishes the limited series is engraved on the bezel at 12 o'clock. The crown is in pink gold. The brushed pink gold flange bears hour markers. The strap is in white crocodile leather. Price: 9,900 euros.
