Swatch 'How Majestic': The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

As you’re probably aware, this Friday will mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrating her 70th year as the reigning monarch. To mark the event, Swatch have brought out a special little piece called ‘How Majestic’, and it really is quite cute.

The watch features a cheery looking Queen Elizabeth II, giving us a little wave, stood beside one of her beloved Corgi’s. This watch has an unusual trick up its sleeve though, as this lovely illustration of the queen, in her very stylish outfit, actually changes colour! This is because the calendar wheel features an array of bright gorgeous colours, so every day the queen’s outfit will display a new ombre dress and hat. Pretty cool if you ask me.

The watch also features 70 gold dots around the edge of the dial to commemorate her 70 years of rule. These gold dots are nicely accompanied by gold hands, a gold swatch logo at the 9 o’clock position, and a gold crown. These gold accents stand out beautifully against the matte white plastic case, silicone strap, and dial.

The packaging features a Coldstream Guard in their iconic uniform, and inside the box, along with the watch, there is a sparkly silver paper crown. How sweet. This watch retails at £83, but if you want one you better act quickly as these babies are going fast and are being resold on websites such as eBay for as much as £400!

. . .

That’s pretty much all there is to say about this adorable number, and I think the Queen would really love it. Hope you’ve enjoyed, and have a great Jubilee bank holiday!
