As the '70s punk rockers the Only Ones say: space travel can really wear you out. Skip the waiting list for the mission to Mars and teleport your imagination straight to the cosmos with the Big Bold Planet series from Swatch. The affordably luxe timepieces are inspired by galactic dreams, alien worlds and astronomical technology.
Choose from one of four Big Bold Planet colourways and styles for an added sprinkle of sci-fi stardust to any outfit. Each design is representative of the concept of other worlds and the imaginative spark they have sent through pop culture, fashion and tech.
In soothing, dreamy blues is the Second Home, a watch inspired by liveable, uncharted planets, the beauty of Earth and deep denim hues. The idea of a potential second planet that could sustain life out there is represented in an exaggerated "2" with a cute little blue planet icon also popping on the dial.
Come in Peace is a sharp acid green watch that takes its cues from extra-terrestrial life. Make a statement with this alien world time piece that exudes intergalactic discovery and a Matrix-esque edge. This model comes with a foreign planet language enscribed on the band and an emoji-style alien face on the dial.
For a slash of magenta choose the Touchdown model, a cosmic purple accessory symbolising peaceful planetary discovery and the gaseous violet fogs of space. Inspiring exploration this watch has a tiny astronaut in place of the wheel and a sartorial mix of deep purples, pinks and black in its components.
Embodying fearlessness is the boldly orange Oops!, a watch that symbolises the enrgy and tenacity of interstellar exploration. Exude warmth and good vibes with this model's bright colour palette and spark convos about the nature of time with the watch face's chaotically structured numbering.
Each of the Big Bold Planet watches comes with two options for the wristband. Change up the colour according to your mood and express yourself through the sci-fi-like encrypted text on each different band.
