New collection of Swatch watches features space telescope images endorsed by ESA

Swatch and the European Space Agency (ESA) have joined forces to bring the wonders of the universe to your wrist. This exciting collaboration allows customers to customize their Swatch X You watches with images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope or James Webb Space Telescope. For a limited time, six new designs are available, featuring stunning visuals of nebulae, globular clusters, and protostars.

Carole Mundell, ESA’s director of science and head of the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC), expressed her excitement about this partnership. She highlighted how astronomers were once the keepers of date and time, and now, their telescopes allow us to look back billions of years. With these Swatch watches, you not only check the time but also get a breathtaking glimpse of time and space on a cosmic scale.

The customization process is made easy with Swatch’s online configurator on the Swatch X You website. Customers can choose one of the six ESA space telescope images and then manipulate it to fit their desired position on the watch face. They can move, rotate, and zoom in and out until they find their perfect slice of the universe to wear on their wrist. Additionally, users can select the color of the watch mechanism, decide if they want dial indexes, and even add a personalized message on the back of the case.

Each finished ESA space watch comes with an ESA-branded loop on the strap, a special sleeve, and a postcard featuring the space telescope image used for the design. These unique timepieces retail for $135 each, allowing anyone to have a piece of the cosmos at an affordable price.

Swatch emphasizes that these designs provide accessibility to the cosmic wonders that have fascinated humanity for centuries. The starry night sky and what lies beyond our naked eye’s reach have always captivated our imagination. With the Swatch X You ESA collection, we can now wear these cosmic wonders and carry a piece of the unknown with us wherever we go.

To wrap it up, the Swatch and ESA collaboration brings together the worlds of fashion and science, allowing individuals to adorn their wrists with captivating images of the universe.
