The festive season’s glad tidings are about to be made even sweeter with the debut of two latest Swatch x The Simpsons watches, sans the animated series’ iconic donut perhaps, though this collaboration does feature just-as-warm holiday scenes starring the entire Simpson family.
The first style, WONDROUS WINTER WONDERLAND, brings together festive red and cute gingerbread cookies, done in the style of our favourite characters, all lined up across a snow-dappled strap. The dial itself is a welcome scene of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie coming together for a couple of heartwarming carols.
Then, there’s the icy-cool TIDINGS OF JOY watch, which adds festive cheer thanks to its snowy backdrop where Marge and Homer run along the smaller watch’s strap, just as their children Bart, Lisa, and Maggie take centre stage on the dial. The scene on the watch is, in fact, inspired by the very first episode of the beloved animated series, while the Simpsons Holiday Special also sees contrasting red hands that glow in the dark, and a bio-sourced case and glass.
L – R: WONDROUS WINTER WONDERLAND (SUOZ361), $150 ; TIDINGS OF JOY (SO28Z126), $135.

Swatch Holiday Collection
Swatch also gives us more ways to glow up this season, with a Holiday Collection that glitters and shines in all the right ways; these make perfect gifts for yourself or a cherished loved one. These watch designs are modern interpretations of the holiday season, and thus do away with the traditional red and green theme, in favour of playful colour, shimmering finishes or iridescent accents.
Some of our favourites ones include the metallic finishes of the fuchsia and gemstone-inspired deep green watches, complete with festive star etchings to commemorate the season, as well as those with dashes of luminous yellow and green that stand out against sun-brushed black. A series of golden watches round off the collection, for a touch more sophistication where necessary.
