It’s been a banner year for brand collaborations on NanaDC. From TAG Heuer x Porsche to Hodinkee x Snoopy, many of these masterful partnerships have caught the global watch scene by surprise. None, however, have caused quite as much buzz as the first-of-its-kind Omega x Swatch MoonSwatch. This colorful take on the NASA-approved Omega Speedmaster was limited to just 3,000 pieces, and it quickly sold out at retail and flew off the shelves at collectors’ boutiques. But the real excitement came in the secondary market, where speculators and gray market flippers lined up days in advance for a chance to score one.
What is the oldest luxury watch?
Now, just a few months later, Swatch is expanding its Art Journey series with another collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art. This time around, the GS124 COLOR THE SKY features details from works by Roy Lichtenstein and Rene Magritte on its dial and case. It’s the perfect accessory for anyone looking to add some artful flair to their wardrobe without breaking the bank.
The latest Swatch Art Journey watch, the SUOZ351 Great Wave off Kanagawa & Astrolabe, joins forces with artist Katsushika Hokusai’s woodblock print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” from 1831, which depicts a storm-tossed sea and a spiraling wave. The SUOZ351’s dark blue tones, Prussian blue accents, and starry night sky make for a stunning piece of wearable art.
This watch is available now at select in-store locations across the world including New York, Tokyo, Berlin, Seoul, and Rome. But, like previous releases, you’ll have to wait to shop it online or at eBay or StockX.
