Portfolio : Swatch : "Mellinium" collection watches


Swatch "mellinium" collection watch designs for 2000.


swatch hobo 1

Swatch "Urban Slang". This Swatch (#GK328) is part of the 2000 collection.
The graphics on this watch explore the (dingbat) language of hobos, and what each icon means.

When hobos enter a community or an area, they tag certain buildings to communicate with each other. Instead of having a number on each hour of the watch face, there is an icon in it's place. On the back on the band, each icon is explained as follows...

the icon at 01 means ::: "there are thieves about"
the icon at 02 means ::: "free telephone here"
the icon at 03 means ::: (Swatch logo)
the icon at 04 means ::: "you'll be cursed out"
the icon at 05 means ::: "dangerous neighborhood"
the icon at 06 means ::: "man with gun lives here"
the icon at 07 means ::: "food for work here"
the icon at 08 means ::: "kind lady lives here"
the icon at 09 means ::: "free doctor here"
the icon at 10 means ::: "good place for handout"
the icon at 11 means ::: "alcohol in this town"
the icon at 12 means ::: "easy mark, sucker"
