May we introduce? The Diaphane One, the most complicated watch Swatch has ever built. Limited to 2222 pieces, it is hard to find today and is characterized by small but fine details.
The movement, which Swatch had designed by Jaeger-LeCoultre, is a so-called Carrusel Tourbillon. This has the property that the movement rotates twice per hour around its own axis. In addition, the movement is skeletonized and has been refined with several decorations and a transparent back.
The case is typical of the Diaphane line, made of plastic and aluminum. This guarantees a pleasant wearing comfort.
To crown it all, Swatch has set a diamond in the back of the watch. Why? We are still speculating today. However, it is clear that this is one of the most incredible watches in Swiss watch history.
Swatch is a famous Swiss watch brand founded in 1983 by Nicolas Hayek and 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.
The name Swatch is a contraction of "second watch", as the watches were intended as casual, disposable accessories.
