If old-school street art is your thing, then you might want to pick up this amazing Swatch X Jean-Michel Basquiat Triptych watch set.
Of course, you can pick up each of these watches separately. But if you have the money, you might as well go all in. As you get them with the extra packaging and, as a result, some extra collectability.
Regular readers will know that this is another step in the art collection that Swatch is running. You might recall me featuring the wonderful Swatch x Roy Lichtenstein pop art watches, which are well worth checking out if you have a thing for mid-20th-century pop art.
Or, if your artistic tastes are a touch later, check out these equally cool beauties.
The Swatch X Jean-Michel Basquiat Triptych includes all three of the collaborative pieces, with each face and strap built around an iconic piece of street art. Bold, colourful, cool and the perfect excuse to wear an old-school watch. Yes, I know a smartwatch does everything from monitoring your health to take taking your calls. But they don’t look as good as any of the watches here.
You also get the packaging too, which focuses on the artwork used for each of the watches and gives you somewhere to store your watches too when not being worn.
As for each watch, being Swatch, it is a mix of plastic and silicone, with a quartz movement and some water resistance built-in. There’s also the hidden factor of having a watch that gets you noticed and, I would guess, one that starts the occasional conversation too.
Each one retails for around £90 if you think the set is overkill. But if you prefer to go big, the box is yours for £320 until stock dries up.
