Here we have a 2023 Swatch What If... Beige with a distinctive 33mm square Beige coloured Bioceramic case that sits flat on your wrist with stubby drilled lugs. Swatch is proud of its durable case structure, combining ceramic powder and bio-sourced materials. A contemporary and characteristically playful design, a first for Swatch who usually uses a circular case design. Back in 1982, Swatch played with many prototypes in circular and square forms, deciding on the round design they called “Gent” and four decades on we return to their beginnings. The lug-to-lug length of 41.5mm and case thickness of 10.5mm ensure a comfortable fit. On the right side is a push/pull crown, an edge-to-edge Bio-sourced glass crystal is an open window to the matte blue dial. An outer minute track surrounds Arabic 12, 6 and 9 and baton indexes are placed in such a way as to direct your eye towards the centre, marking the hours, at 3 o’clock a day/date window, slender baton hands filled with lume are complemented by a tapered second hand, at 12 o’clock we have the Swatch motif completing this striking watch. On the reverse, we have a round battery hatch with a reflection of the dials that inspired this watch printed on it. Inside a Swiss Quartz movement. The watch comes paired with its integrated beige bio-soured 21mm Swatch strap with a signed Bioceramic pin buckle. The watch comes with its Swatch presentation box and papers.
This Swatch What If... Beige is a great bit of fun for well under £100! Exactly what Swatch has always been about and this feels like a true Swatch. This would make a perfect stocking filler for that person in your life into watches, or for someone you want to get into watches, snap this up for them!
Swatch is a subsidiary of the Swatch Group and was founded in 1983 by Ernst Thomke, Elmar Mock, and Jacques Müller as a direct response to the Quartz crisis during the 1970s and early Eighties. Its design aesthetic was intended to be fun and yet disposable. In 1997 they opened 60 stores worldwide; today there are over 3,000. The combination of aggressive marketing and efficient manufacturing using modern technologies such as ultrasonic welding put Swatch firmly on the map for affordable fun timepieces.
