Introducing The Swatch Pigcasso Limited Edition (Live Pics & Pricing)
This, women and gentlemen, is an undeniable takeoff from the earnestness of the horological world we can infrequently find ourselves floating into. This Swatch, appropriately named Pigcasso (after its maker), ran over my work area a week ago and its backstory immediately carried a grin to my face.
It is a quartz (I know, I know) restricted version of 2019 pieces produced to stamp the Chinese year of the pig. For those of you who don’t have the foggiest idea (I didn’t), the pig is the twelfth in the 12-year pattern of Chinese zodiac sign. The long stretches of the pig incorporate 1995, 2007, and now 2019. To observe, Swatch has collaborated with one of the world’s just realize painting pigs, Ms. Pigcasso.
Pigcasso is a fine example, tipping the scales at a little more than 350 lbs. She has been making works of art since 2016, having figured out how to paint utilizing encouraging feedback preparing following her salvage (I enthusiastically recommend watching her in real life over on YouTube ). Working with youngster amicable paint she produced her most recent work on material and it was then converted into the watch you presently find before you. I’ll put it all on the line and say that Picasso himself would have been entertained by this exhibition at the very least.

The Pigcasso restricted release might not have the charm of the new Damien Hirst coordinated effort or the vintage cool of any memorable Keith Haring stuff, however you can’t deny how much fun it is. In the same way as other Swatch watches, this version is best cooperated with stifled fashion combinations to maintaining a strategic distance from shading clash. The watch itself has a white plastic lash and dial embellished with Pigcasso’s work and a straightforward case. The tones on the tie are green and blue while the dial conveys shades of pink and purple. The strokes on the dial do make fairly an issue around readability, however I don’t feel that is a primary worry with this watch.
We are seeing an expanding number of product dispatches joined to natural or social causes, which I commend. All proceeds from the offer of these restricted versions will go to the Farm Sanctuary, whose mission is to rouse compassion for ranch animals. I’m in.
