Global timepiece manufacturer Swatch partners with British artist Damien Hirst in the debut of a duo of Mickey Mouse watches. The products are a part of the brand's special art series.
The offerings boast a plastic case with a mirrored dial and quartz movement. They are adorned with illustrations of Disney's most popular character, just in time for the mouse's 90th birthday. The graphics embrace an abstract approach that contributes to the aesthetic with an elegant uniqueness.
The Mickey Mouse watches are released in an extremely limited fashion. The 'Mirror Spot Mickey' will be made available to consumers on November 16th, with a total of 19,999 units hitting the shelf. The 'Spot Mickey' timepiece, however, will only be released for 24 hours online, with only 1,999 units.
