Swatch Partners BAPE For New Collab

And it's a wonderful clash of colours.

Big Bold BAPE

It has taken some time, by Swatch, the inimitable king of quirky and accessible limited edition watches has finally collaborated A Bathing Ape (BAPE), a pioneering Japanese streetwear label that celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018.

Swatch and BAPE fanboys will have a field day with the limited edition Swatch Big Bold BAPE collection. It boasts six models that feature both companies’ trademark colour and caprice. Five of the models pay homage to a world city each – Bern, London, New York, Paris and Tokyo – with the sixth dubbed ‘The World’, a not-too-subtle statement of both brand’s ambition for global domination.

While each model flaunts its own stupendously coloured cloak in 47mm cases, they are all distinguished by a hour hand featuring the BAPE logo and a world-city ring with the dedicated city poised at 12 o’clock and highlighted in red. The watches are limited to 983 or 1993 pieces, depending on the model. Have a scroll and let us know which one you like.
