Swatch’s first collaboration of 2021 is with the studio of 1980s New York activist and pop artist Keith Haring for a series of three Mickey Mouse watches.

The late Mr Haring joins a long line of artists that have designed Swatch watches, including Kiki Picasso, Alfred Hofkunst and David LaChapelle x Amanda Lepore.

Mr Haring, who died of AIDS in 1990, is said to have wanted to collaborate on a watch with Swatch during his lifetime, and his eponymous studio adopted his street art style for the collection of three pieces that go on sale in January.
