Fondation Maeght

This watch has been sold as a limited edition of 5,000 pieces and is exclusively designed for Swatch by Valerio Adami. The black plastic strap has a white signature “Adami” divided over the top and bottom part. The black plastic case holds a black dial with a design of two kissing people in white outline. White hour and minute hands show the time. This watch is part of a set of three, called together the Fondation Maeght Set.

1985 haring breakdance

http://www.squiggly.com/us/en/swatch/breakdance-GO001.htm

ours is with poster (does not seem original). because it is in glass display hard to see the 755/9999

It is often called a Keith Haring, but from what I understand it was designed by Schmidt Muller, and based on a POSTER designed by Keith Haring commemorating the first International Breakdance Competition at the Roxy in 1985. I believe it was limited to 9999 pieces.

Swatch watch GS100, or ‘4 Flags’ 1984

The watch was made for a limited time due to copyright issues.
