Swatch Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring

One of the 20th century’s most iconic artists, Keith Haring’s work stands as a symbol of playfulness and joie de vivre the world over. The artist rose to fame with his pop and graffiti influenced work reflecting the staunch social activism of New York in the 1980s.

Now, Haring’s fascination with iconic Disney character Mickey Mouse has been honoured in this new collaboration with Swatch. Consisting of three unique watches infused with Haring’s idiosyncratic style, the collection will no doubt appeal to a broad cross-section of art enthusiasts, pop culture aficionados and of course, watch lovers.

The Models:


All three models in the collection reflect the playful, iconic nature of Haring’s work and of this unique collaboration. The models come with a plastic case with a crown at the three o’clock position. With a fixed bezel and raised protective glass, there is plenty to admire about the cases of these watches.

Straps come in silicone, with plastic buckle closures whilst the dials vary widely in their special design. All watches in the Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring collection come with Swatch’s quartz movement reflecting years of Swiss watchmaking expertise. Waterproof to 30 bar, these watches are ideal for use across a wide variety of scenarios.

Let’s take a closer look at the specific design elements of each watch in the collection.

Mickey Mariniere

With its dial showing a cool double-layered illusion, the Mickey Mariniere is inspired by Mickey’s famous striped shorts. The clever use of red and white stripes, set behind the iconic drawing of the mouse himself by none other than Haring, brings movement and depth to this special watch.

The Swatch Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring Mouse Mariniere has subtle yet easily legible markers to tell the time with no bother, whilst the Swatch Swiss logo sits atop the dial, bringing depth and authority.

Blanc Sur Noir

The Swatch Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring Blanc Sur Noir is a simple, minimalist-inspired timepiece. With a Mickey portrait by Haring taking centre stage, the pop-yellow hands really stand out on an otherwise black and white dial. These allow the user to tell the time easily enough yet they also bring a sense of zip to this watch, matching as they do with the yellow loop. The Swatch Swiss logo sits atop the dial, bringing depth and authority.

The bracelet of the Swatch Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring Blanc Sur Noir has a playful yet deeply considered strap design that brings colour and life. The majority of the strap is simply black, making for a strong look. The buckle itself is also black yet one of the two loops is yellow to match the hands. This is adorned with Haring’s iconic signature whilst the other bears the Disney logo.

Eclectic Mickey

The Swatch Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring Eclectic Mickey is truly something to marvel at. Mickey Mouse is recreated through a series of curved lines and monochrome dashes, perfectly offset by the luminous yellow hour markers. Packed with Haring’s trademark sense of movement and depth, this timepiece radiates sheer joy. The Swatch Swiss logo sits atop the dial, bringing depth and authority.

The bracelet of the Swatch Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring Eclectic Mickey has a playful yet deeply considered strap design that brings colour and life. Made up of Haring’s legendary black squiggles on a white background, the strap is offset by a red buckle with white and yellow loops, matching the loud hour markers. One loop has the Disney logo and the other Haring’s iconic signature.

Keith Haring

A titan of 20th century visual culture, Keith Haring retains a special place in the oeuvre of graffiti and pop artists of 1980s New York. 

Born in 1958 in Pennsylvania, Keith Haring began drawing from an early age. His move to New York in 1978 sparked a creative flood and soon his iconic style began to appear in subways, nightclubs and galleries across the city. 

Deeply conscious of social issues including drug addiction, the HIV/AIDs epidemic and children’s literacy, the real strength of Haring’s art lay in its striking simplicity and the speed with which it was created.

Since his death in 1990, Haring’s legacy has been one of charity, tolerance and above all spreading a message of love.
