Swatch x Keith Haring Limited Editions
You know what’s cooler than a MoonSwatch? A Keith Haring Swatch.
In 1986, Keith Haring, an artist known for his contemporary pop art characterized by stylized shapes and bright colors, collaborated with the Swatch brand on three different limited edition pieces limited to 9,999 pieces. The 34mm case and strap were both made out of plastic and featured their quartz movement. It’s their dials however, that truly captured Haring’s essence, with each one serving as a canvas for Haring’s distinguishable style.
This ad, curated by our friends over at Ad Patina, features Haring’s signature “Dancing Figures”, hand-written lettering and of course the three limited edition watches. It’s custom framed in a “floating” style, fully-exposed 16.5” x 19” solid wood frame with a teal painted and gesso finish. It features a custom-measured, hand-cut 4-ply border in a shade of cream, complimenting all the ad tones. Every material used is acid-free and the glass is anti-reflective and offers UV-protection to keep this precious ad preserved no matter where you decide to hang it. Speaking of which, hanging your newly purchased ad is a seamless task, as this particular frame comes with an additional hanging wire and felt pads for wall protection.
In a market quickly filling up with newer Swatch collaborations, these vintage limited edition Keith Haring watches provide a unique historical context and gobs of style, arguably much more interesting than anything that has come since.
Like the watches themselves, this framed ad is a punchy addition that will be a conversation starter for watch nuts and art enthusiasts everywhere!
ABOUT OUR COLLABORATION WITH AD PATINA
We're thrilled to be collaborating once again with our longtime friend Nick at Ad Patina to bring you a selection of the most-popular and hard to find original vintage magazine advertisements curated specifically for Analog:Shift!
Scouring the world for forgotten marketing treasures, Ad Patina's raison de être very much mimics our own — to hunt down these wonderful bits of history, preserve and restore them as needed, and share them with an enthusiastic community.
These documents of horological and advertising history have entered the collecting conversation as the ultimate accompanying accessory to go along with hobbies and passions. They have found themselves framed in homes and offices around the world.
Every one of these wonderful pieces is a genuine, vintage advertisement that has been professionally framed to ensure years of enjoyment to come — no reprints or reproductions here!
Much like a traditional piece of art — a painting or photograph — an original advertisement can be appreciated for its design as well as for its power to evoke nostalgia. Something vintage enthusiasts know all about!
Analog:Shift stands behind the authenticity of our products in perpetuity.
Since our pieces are vintage or pre-owned, please expect wear & patina from usage and age. Please read each item description and examine all product images.
