Under the Umbrella of Swatch Group
Swatch Group is one of the biggest watch manufacturers on earth and as such, they are considered as pioneers that distribute some of the best Swatch watches for men and women ever crafted. Millions of innovative designs, movements, and concepts are sold every year, delivered with supreme accuracy straight from the heart of the watchmaking philosophy, Switzerland.
Swatch Group might seem all big and tough today, with watch brands under the umbrella such Omega, Rado, Tissot, Hamilton, Longines, and more, but things weren’t always going smooth for the company. Read on…
Saving the Swiss Watchmaking Heritage
Swatch was initially created as a response to the quartz crisis that began in the 1970s. Seiko and other Japanese watch brands were manufacturing quartz watches with the same or better accuracy as Swiss automatic watches and for a way more affordable price. Quartz crisis hit not only the Swiss watchmaking industry but the entire world of watches.
At this time, a small team of watch engineers led by Jacques Muller and Elmar Mock, initiated Swatch, in the early 1980s as a counter-strike to the Japanese quartz watches expansion.
“The Original Jelly Fish” First Swatch watch
The company soon started manufacturing Swatch watches for men and women with entry-level prices and supreme accuracy as always. When watch lovers realized they could have a Swiss-made watch on their wrist for an affordable price, they turned their eyes once again from Switzerland. While some Swiss watch brands were focused on manufacturing better mechanical or automatic movements, others chose to follow the path Swatch opened. With aggressive marketing campaigns advertising low-priced Swiss-made watches, Swatch watches for men and women gained instant popularity.
After some history lectures no one asked for, below you will see the best Swatch watches for men you can still purchase in 2021. Check them below…
