High-quality Swiss watchmakers Swatch team up with Japanese streetwear apparel brand A Bathing Ape to launch their new “Big Bold” watch, combining for an intercontinental collection which takes watch enthusiasts across the world in six watches.
Celebrating the release of the all-new model, colorways include the streetwear brand’s signature camo in various tones to match each city. Special shoutouts are given to Tokyo, Paris, London, New York, and Bern, with a final “World” watch which shouts out all aforementioned cities amongst many others.
Explaining why Swatch differs from other watchmakers, BAPE says:
“Born in 1983 and initially known as “Second Watch,” SWATCH, is a brand that upholds the values of Swiss made yet is attainable at an affordable price range and in casual designs. Differing from luxury watches that seek status, these wristwatches are pop fashion items made with plastic materials and are made to be worn casually to match the day’s mood while telling time.”
A prerelease of the collection arrived today at the following BAPE stores; BAPEXCLUSIVE™ Aoyama, BAPE STORE® Kyoto, and online store here (via lottery). The full drop, which includes the “World” model, will be available at all locations worldwide from June 15th.
