It's hip to be square
In 1982, the founders of Swatch faced a crucial decision: was their revolutionary new watch going to be round or square? Opting for round shaped the company’s bright success. With the new Bioceramic What If? collection, Swatch explores the alternative universe by revisiting the original square prototype, using innovative Bioceramic material in black, grey, green, and beige. Strong and durable, this unexpected collection breaks free from conventions, embracing a life full of fun and zero regrets, glancing back while taking a bold step forward with positive provocation and a rebellious streak, show-casing Swatch’s enduring spirit.

Built for endurance
Two limited-edition Ironman-themed versions of Breitling’s Endurance Pro sports watch celebrate the 2023 Ironman and Ironman 70.3 world championship triathlon events. Each model, limited to 250 pieces, showcases the distinct colour scheme of its respective race. The turquoise Endurance Pro Ironman 70.3 is crafted in Breitlight, a material almost six times lighter than stainless steel, and salutes the event in Lahti, Finland. The special-edition Endurance Pro Ironman in blue marks the men’s race in Nice, France, and the women’s race in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, and is made from high-performance titanium.
