A near-mint condition 1991 GZ118 HORIZON vintage Swatch watch is now up for sale on Vintage Radar. A great time-keeper, which has stood the test of time greatly, this watch not only has a reliable Swiss-made mechanism, but it also comes with a fascinating design. The story behind its good looks is told on the Swatch website:
"As fluid and evanescent as time itself, Silvie and Chérif Defraoui’s Horizon(GZ118) is a watery, flowing creation, printed with mysterious, inky gestalts that emerge from fields of cerulean and midnight blue. Like images assembling themselves from Rorschach blots, these beautiful forms are undetermined, undefined, and as open for interpretation as animal shapes discovered in the clouds. Depths and shallows, whole worlds and oceans of colour and time are contained in a work whose pen-and-ink elegance remains a mystery. A luminous, intellectual timepiece from the avant-garde of contemporary art."

SWATCH WATCHES SINCE 1983
Swatch is a Swiss watchmaker founded in 1983 by Nicolas Hayekand a subsidiary of The Swatch Group. The Swatch product line was developed as a response to the "quartz crisis" of the 1970s and 1980s, in which Asian-made digital watches were competing against traditional European-made mechanical watches. We have been collecting Swiss watches for almost 15 years and of course, this amazing brand had to make it in our collection. Moreover, it has become the most prominent one, as our collection rises up to 1000 Swatch watch models at this point. We have watches from all the major Swatch watch categories, such as Swatch Originals, Swatch Irony, Swatch skin, Swatch Bijoux, Swatch Digital Touch, Swatch Sistem51, Chronograph Swatch watches, Scuba Swatch watches, Flik Flak & more.
