Swatch creates iconic, provocative timepieces that have saved the Swiss watch industry, thanks to its visionary founder Nicolas Hayek. The watches are colourful, happy, loud, shrill and forever reinterpreted in different ways. Swiss Made and, thanks to industrial production and only 51 parts, available at a democratic price. Since the “second watch” was born in March 1983, hundreds of millions have been sold. In a very short space of time Swatch has become one of the most famous brands in the world – and all the while remaining true to itself.
