i am pretty sure that if you were already alive and kicking back in the 90s, you would know exactly what the POP swatch is. if i remember correctly, i had two of them which i so begged my parents to get me. they go me one. and the other, i got by saving up my allowance. it was the must-have watch back then. and i absolutely adored the concept. their campaigns were super cool as well which made it even more interesting coz you would always stand by and check what the new designs were every season.

fast forward years later. and i get a call about the upcoming relaunch of the iconic POP swatch. how can you say NO to one of the brands you absolutely loved and actually wore for years? to be a part of a relaunch that was going to be so creative and super fun?! obviously i said YES! and so here are my favourites from the 9 piece collection of the latest POP swatch which are now available in stores for you to check out and shop. we were basically asked to personally  create visuals for each individual watch of our choice and i love the fact that we could go crazy with them. it was an amazing experience and the shoot was just super crazy and a ton of fun to do.


oh and because i love this watch so much, i wanted to make sure i share that love to you guys. so yes, i am giving away one POP swatch from the latest collection. simply comment below on why you would love to #POPitUP with SWATCH this season. make sure you leave your name and email address as well so i can get in touch with you. this giveaway is open to UAE residents only and deadline of entries is on or before 15th june 2016.
