Swatch Vintage POP Alfred Hofkunst Red Chili Pepper Limited Edition Novelty Watch
Highly collectible vintage watch by Swatch. Part of their POP series, this incredibly cute statement novelty watch was a limited edition piece designed by Austrian artist Alfred Hofkunst. A trompe l'oeil or surrealist vibe, if you will, the timepiece is shaped like a red hot chili pepper. Featuring printed details on the leather strap and face, with a pop off 3D chili topper face frame and vivid green buckle. The face is signed and dated 1989, although the series looks to have been issued in 1991. Alfred Hofkunst made three designs for Swatch POP: a strip of bacon, a cucumber, and the chili pepper you see here. The unique look and function of this watch makes it one of the most collectible swatches out there.
