Swatch Skin Irony: The Perfect Summer Dress Watch and It Costs Less Than $200

Its case is sleek and compact, and the design toes the line between stark minimalism and playfully colorful.


Though everything is a tad more casual in the summertime, there are still plenty of opportunities to wear a dress watch. And though there are tons of excellent options out there commanding lofty prices, you don’t need to spend very much for some proper wristwear. Case in point is Swatch’s latest Skin Irony Collection.

The collection is comprised of eight different watches, and while each varies regarding dial design and strap style (as is Swatch’s modus operandi), they’re all formed around the same ultra-thin design. The case here is just 38mm in diameter and 5.8mm thick and protects a Swiss-made quartz movement inside. Prices range from $150 to $195 depending on the choice of strap material — rubber, leather or metal — and the colorways on offer toe the line between simple minimalism and playfully colorful.
