On Tuesday we showed you the new Swatch Sistem51 blending in perfectly with the streetscape of Melbourne’s Hosier Lane. And today to celebrate the Australian launch of the clever mechanical Swatch, we’re teaming up with Swatch to give you the chance to be one of the first people in Australia to own the Sistem51 for yourself. A Sistem RED to be specific.
How to Enter
1. Fill out the form below to become a subscriber to Time+Tide. If you are already a subscriber, thank-you and we hope you’re enjoying the updates on new posts at Time+Tide.
2. Head over to Instagram and post a photo of you and your Swatch and on that post tell us about your first Swatch in 25 words or less. That’s not a lot of words. No room for epic tales on this one: sharp and to the point. When did you get it? What do you remember about it? We need to know that you’ve posted, so please make sure that you tag @timetidewatches and @swatch on your entry. Don’t worry, the tags don’t count to the 25 words.
The competition runs from 10am AEST on Friday 5 September and will finish at 5pm AEST on Friday 12 September. Full details on the terms and conditions can be found below.
Good luck and happy posting.
