I was on a short (over the weekend) local holiday with the family when I spotted this watch at the Swatch Shop. It was the Swatch Black Rebel. This is part of the new Gents True Colour collection from Swatch. The Black Rebel, reference SUOB702, is very interesting in its is all black save the crown. The crown is polished steel. Everything else is black. The dial is sun burst black, the hands, black (not sure if it has the black luminous material, but was told that it has what is called Glow Glow Black), the day and date is black on black. The strap is black, well you get the picture.
I hesitated buying the watch, saying I will think about it. After dinner, I decided to get the watch. A short stroll to the shop and alas, the watch has been sold. Even the display watch was sold. Two watches in a span of 3 hours. Sigh. Looks like I have to bring the search closer to home here in Taipei.
Closer view of the face. I like.
Here is a video on the collection.
