2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the massively influential German art school, Bauhaus. And to celebrate the occasion, Swatch has decided to release a 25-model strong collection of timepieces. Named the Bau Swatch collection, the watches range from subdued monotone models to colourful, art-inspired references.
Put down the iPhones and pick up a vintage Swatch watch. Swatch watches are colorful, charismatic time pieces that became a fad of every trendy girl/guys' closet in the 1980s and 1990s. An advertisement would depict a wearer rocking not just one but multiple Swatch watches on his or her arms, proving that the Man Repeller's popularization of the "arm party" may not be so original after all.
