Swatch's Big Bold collection, with its 47mm-wide cases and colorful designs, seems the perfect palette for a collaboration with Japanese streetwear brand Bape, expressed via three new watches with funky designs featuring Bape's signature look.
The models come in black, gray or white plastic cases, each with different dial designs. Bape's colorful camouflage pattern is found on the silicon straps and is more subtly expressed on the dials, and its ape-head logo tips the hour hand. The cities named around the bezel indicate not a world time complication as it might at first appear, but rather the brands' "favorite cities."
Powered by quartz movements, each of the Swatch x Bape watches, officially called "Tokyo Multi Camo," is expectedly affordable at $150 — just a little more than Swatch's standard Big Bold collection. In addition, there will be a "surprise" limited set with subtly different designs for diehard fans.
