Four of the seven new olympic-inspired watches Swatch rolled out as part of the Rio Olympic Games Collection.

 

Swiss brand Swatch, known for its colourful and affordable timepieces, has launched a special collection in honour of the summer Olympic Games. Marked by the signature silicone band and plastic case, there are five watches in all, including a special POP edition; prices range from $70 to $145. —Linda Luong Luck

 

Hot Shopping: Tick Tock

Kidrobot for Swatch

The countdown’s finally over for the launch of the Kidrobot for Swatch line of timepieces. The always-cool Gent watch comes decorated with designs by eight different Kidrobot–partnered artists (MAD’s Shout Out; pictured), leaving fans chomping at the bit for a piece of this arty arm candy and the collectable vinyl Dunny toy that comes with it. Time’s a tickin’ so head to The Bay or Swatch before it’s too late.—Jennifer Patterson
