Translucent 80s-Inspired Timepieces

The Swatch Big Bold Jelly Brings Back a Familiar Looks

— January 22, 2020 — Fashion
The Swatch Big Bold Jelly timepiece has been created by the watch brand as a new version of the Jellyfish model from the 1980s that will allow wearers to keep a touch of iconic retro style on their wrist. The watch features a larger 47mm dial that's fully transparent to allow all of the internal components to be visible through the exterior and make the actual functionality of the accessory the focal point. The timepiece is paired with a semi-transparent silicone strap and accented by pops of color on the hour, minute and second hand to add a touch of additional visual intrigue to the accessory.

The Swatch Big Bold Jelly timepiece is part of the larger wave of retro fashion products coming (back) to the market as consumers seek to incorporate nostalgic styles into their everyday wear.
