Want to be one of the few people in the world with a limited edition watch designed by an internationally renowned artist?
Swatch has partnered with German artist and illustrator Olaf Hajek to create two limited edition watches – The Flowerhead and Nature Man.
Using Hajek’s recent paintings of vibrant portraits of African women, the Flowerhead’s dial presents the face of an African woman clothed in plants and flowers, creating an image of luxury and beauty through nature. The Nature Man, on the other hand, is a surreal portrait of a blue-green man gazing into a distance populated with spiky plants and bright flowers.
Both timepieces have curling leaves floating above the watch faces as hour and minute hands, which make them great couple watches, or even cool watches for friends who want to wear art on their wrists.
Not only are the two watches covered in lush greenery, the box to keep the watches in boasts a multi-coloured print of plants and flowers as well, matching the watches perfectly.
In lieu of the collaboration between Swatch and Hajek, only 888 pieces of the new collection are available.
Swatch and Olaf Hajek’s Flowerhead and Nature man watches are available as a set of two at $279, and will be sold at Swatch’s Ion Orchard and Marina Bay Sands branches in late March, 2014. For more information about Swatch, visit its website at http://www.swatch.com/sg_ms/home.html.
