Swatch x Oscar Niemeyer Tracos de Um Arquiteto watch


We have featured Swatch on various occasions over the years, but I think this is perhaps the coolest design we've had so far – the Swatch x Oscar Niemeyer Tracos de Um Arquiteto watch.

'Tracos de Um Arquiteto' apparently translates to 'traces of an architect' and of course, the architect in question is Oscar Niemeyer. The watch was created for the 50th anniversary of Brazil's capital, Brasilia and is inspired by the architecture of its National Museum and the work of the architect himself.

So as well as offering up some retro cool, it just might get some knowing glances off fans of modernist design too. A limited edition, you can pick it up from Colette for 43 Euros.
