I am lucky to be able to find one Swatch Daohane one . The Diaphane One is unique & commissioned by Nicholas Hayek as a testament to the world that Swatch is capable of producing a high quality mechanical watch. Swatches were considered a plastic watch with low price tags but this time they clearly wanted to make a statement and show its expertise so the Diaphane One was conceived, a groundbreaking watch that shook the watch world. It was completely mechanical yet housed in their signature plastic case while a diamond was added for a sense of luxury.
The Swatch Group is the worlds largest watchmaker with multiple brands in it's stable. In 2001 Swatch launched its 2222 Diaphane One watches for an eye popping price of 3,333 euros, they were sold out.
The carousel movement moves inside the case what makes this watch so extremely special. The whole movement makes in one hour a full rotation.

|Omega Seamaster XVI "Cross of Merit" 18K Gold, 25th Year Official Timekeeping of Olympic Games|
|I have been extremely lucky to be able to find this rare omega Seamaster XVI with the Cross of Merit dial. Most of the Omega Seamaster XVI comes with the XVI wording and not the Cross of Merit dial, using the lacquered China techniques.|
非常罕見的「海馬16」 OMEGA Seamaster XVI "瓷漆面黃金"版本，瓷漆面盤上的 "Cross of Merit" (金獅火炬五環徽章)圖騰浮雕，據說總數不到100只！「海馬16」是OMEGA為紀念自1932～1956連續25年擔任奧運官方計時廠商，所推出之紀念錶款。Omega Seamaster 1956 Olympic 的瓷漆面(lacquered china)，是一種與其他錶款的瓷面、琺瑯面材料、作法均不同的面盤，具有一定厚度並呈半透明狀，非常優美但容易乾裂損壞。本錶是瑞士滑雪學校致贈奧運國家滑雪隊教練的，時間是1956年12月21日。
