Urban Chic Watch Designs

Swatch's all-new SKIN Irony Models Exude Luxurious Sophistication

— August 28, 2019 — Fashion
The dynamic urban environment necessitates chic watches that are versatile, functional and harbor strong ties to fashion-forward aesthetics. With this in mind, trusted timepiece manufacturer Swatch launches all-new colorways for its SKIN Irony range. Initially debuted in 2018, the style presents "the brand's slimmest watch line" and "a great example of [Swatch's] design DNA continuing to evolve." In terms of modern movements, this surely builds on it.

The chic watches boast a contemporary vibe that is timeless and can be seamlessly integrated into any outfit, based on the occasion. The silhouettes are durable, with a 42 mm metal case ensuring just that. In addition, the "brushed and polished stainless steel complement the minimalist dials and straps." Swatch also makes the timepieces available with leather and rubber straps, ensuring that there is something for everybody.
