Not one but three The Simpsons x Swatch Edition Watches
Swatch has introduced a pair of new watches that capture memorable scenes from the Simpsons. The Wondrous Winter Wonderland watch showcases gingerbread characters inspired by the Simpsons joyfully dancing along the snow-covered strap. Meanwhile, the Tidings of Joy watch features Marge and Homer against a snowy backdrop on the dial, where the entire Simpson family, including Bart, Lisa, and Maggie, come together for a heartwarming sing-along, spreading joy in this festive season.
These fresh designs complement the whimsical Seconds of Sweetness watch, which pays tribute to the famous pink-frosted donut associated with Homer Simpson. The watch features a donut-shaped dial adorned with sprinkles and a humorously oversized bite taken out. Against a bright yellow background, the strap is adorned with vibrant pink frosting and multicoloured sprinkles, creating a playful and tempting aesthetic.
