Inspired by cities around the world.

Swatch has teamed up with streetwear giant BAPE for a collab that combines urban culture with quality Swiss watchmaking.

The release features six new models, each designed to make a statement, while also staying true to Swatch’s sleek aesthetic.

Five of the six limited-edition watches are dedicated to the some of the world’s largest cities including Berlin, London, New York, Paris and Tokyo. These five designs are limited to either 1983 or 1993 pieces to pay tribute to each brand’s birth year.

The sixth style, called ‘Big Bold Bape The World’, represents the entire globe and will retail for $200.

Each piece in the collection boasts a huge Ø47mm watch head for convenience and features a newly designed BAPE camo pattern.

A new Ape Head logo can also be found on the hour hand and strap.

Meanwhile, the Swatch logo returns to its roots, reminiscent of the brand’s debut in the 1980s.

The entire BAPE x Swatch range will hit BAPE’s site on June 15, while Swatch will stock the ‘Big Bold Bape The World’ style.
