UAE. Swatch joins Chinese communities around the world in celebrating the Chinese New Year by introducing a special watch.

Starting January 23 2012,  the Year of the Dragon, one of the most lively and colorful signs of the Chinese animal zodiac, is also the key symbol of Chinese Spirit.

Famous for its spirited designs and delightful colors, Swatch has chosen to celebrate the Chinese New Year with a special Gent.

The Year of the Dragon (GZ268) features an intricate and graceful Chinese dragon, drawn in blue on the white ground of the silicone strap, taking inspiration from classic Chinese-style blue and white porcelain.

The dial complements the dragon with a delicate ornamental blue grid drawn on a white background. A blue dragon appears on the special packaging, too, ready to bring good fortune to everyone in the year ahead. The Dragon is said to bring good fortune, as well, to all born under its sign.

Rivoli is the distributer of Swatch in the region. These watches are available at all Swatch Boutiques in the region.
