I Got A (4th) Swatch!

It should be no surprise to any of y’all that I am a big fan of Swatch1. At this point I have 4 working ones, and an old one that needs a battery and a new strap2. Now the MoonSwatch will always be my favorite Swatch ever created3, but this one has easily taken the silver. I don’t really want to write a review on this piece, but this watch feels right. Now I am incredibly biased as I am a huge fan of the Bauhaus movement, and thus am a big fan of Wassily Kandinsky4 and so I had to buy myself this Centre-Pompidou “Bleu Ciel” x Swatch when I visited the museum last week. I love the box, I love the watch, I love the museum, what else can I possible add? I can’t see myself buying too many more Swatches, but this one was necessary5.

One more thing, it isn’t related to watches but I feel it is important. Currently the state of Israel is committing a genocide on the citizens of Palestine. I want to make one thing clear, I am not calling for any violence against Jews, or Muslims and any harmful rhetoric or actions towards any of these groups should and will not be tolerated. What would mean the world however is if you happen to have some cash to spare, send it along to the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund. The world is all kinds of fucked up right now but there are many ways we as individuals can help, there are more resources on this page here and all over the internet. I don’t have much of a voice but I will not be silent with the little I have. Thank you and wherever you are in the world I wish you well.

Maybe it’s a bit too big for my tastes…
