We recently saw the Fossil Twist which combines an inexpensive watch with a touch of watchmaking craft. Swatch, the popular maker of quirky plastic watches takes craft one step further. Their new mechanical watch is the Diaphane One. The watch has a revolving movement which is visible from both the front and the back and makes two full turns each hour. It has blued steel hands and an 18K pink gold flange, bezel and crown and a brown leather strap. Swatch hasn't forgotten their roots, the watch is mounted in a plastic case. The Diaphane One is a limited and numbered edition of only one hundred pieces and sells for around $3,000.
