October 2021 is here at last, and with Halloween close at hand, aBlogtoWatch has removed the disguise from its special mystery watch giveaway. The aBlogtoWatch team has partnered with Swatch to offer a special new watch giveaway to one lucky winner, including a pair of the brand’s newly released 1984 Bioceramic watches. The winner will receive both the Swatch 1984 Bioceramic ROUGE & NOIR as well as the Swatch 1984 Bioceramic YEL_RACE, which revive Swatch’s iconic ’80s retro styles with new high-tech renewable materials.
Naturally, both the use Swatch 1984 Bioceramic ROUGE & NOIR and the Swatch 1984 Bioceramic YEL_RACE are cased in the brand’s lightweight and scratch resistant new castor bean-derived bioceramic material, with smooth and simple hooded-lug forms inspired by Swatch’s classic ’80s looks. The ROUGE & NOIR measures in at a sporty and contemporary 41mm, with a clean and classic matte black finish. The YEL_RACE pays more direct tribute to the wild and compact designs of the ’80s, with a 34mm diameter and a bright canary yellow tone that stands out immediately on the wrist.
The dials of the Swatch 1984 Bioceramic ROUGE & NOIR and the 1984 Bioceramic YEL_RACE both take the boldly colorful graphic look of the ’80s in different directions. The ROUGE & NOIR pairs an ultra-legible black and white base dial with an inner 24-hour scale, along with a bright and cheerful handset in red, blue, and yellow. The YEL_RACE’s approach is splashier and more complex, with a racy red and white patterned outer ring flanked by accents in red, gray, and bright green.
Both the Swatch 1984 Bioceramic ROUGE & NOIR and the 1984 Bioceramic YEL_RACE use accurate and reliable quartz movements, and are paired with brightly colored bio-sourced rubber straps that flow handsomely into the case designs. These straps, rendered in blazing red for the ROUGE & NOIR and case-matching yellow for the YEL_RACE, keep the classic ’80s Swatch silhouette intact while providing more durability, comfort, and lightness than ever before. The ROUGE & NOIR and YEL_RACE carry MSRPs of $90 and $80, respectively, for a total giveaway prize value of $170.
