For 2019, Swatch debuts its latest watchmaking innovation, a paramagnetic Nivachron hairspring made from a newly-developed titanium alloy. The balance spring greatly reduces any negative influences from a magnetic field and is resistant to shock and temperature. The first watch to use the component is the limited edition Flymagic, which will be limited to 500 pieces and features a 45mm case in stainless steel or PVD-coated stainless steel and a transparent dial that showcases a uniquely inverted movement that lets you see all the mechanics at work as well as a transparent winding rotor that floats over the dial.

Available this April.

From $1,500, swatch.com
