Start anew with Swatch watches
If not Jan 1, one can also start anew on Feb 1 when the Lunar New Year begins. The Year of the Tiger is said to be about making big changes.
Likewise, Swatch considers the New Year a perfect time to let go of things holding you back, cut out the noise, tune out distractions, wipe the slate clean, reset and get clear about what the future holds.
With a clear mind and intention, the Swiss brand has redesigned the Big Bold, Gent, New Gent and Skin with see-through style and clarity that extends to the strap.
Swatch actually created a Gent with a transparent look in 1985, just two years after the launch of the brand of watches with funky colours and quartz movements.

Trending now, transparency along with simplicity has been prescribed to the Swatch Clear collection with a minimalist palette offset by the signature splash of primary-coloured hands.
The 34mm Clearly Gent and 41mm Clearly New Gent feature glass and cases made from bio-sourced material, with a shiny light-catching finish on the case, bracelet and buckle.
Swatch introduced the barely-there Skin in 1997. Based on the slim model, the 34mm Clearly Skin is also housed in a bio-sourced material case with a clear dial and a yellow printed Swatch logo on the glass.
Measuring 47mm, the Big Bold transparent case houses a clear dial with a silver-coloured ring, black printed indexes and coloured hands.
