Shanghai Watch Co. x Jellymon

The state-owned Shanghai Watch Company were persuaded by local studio Jellymon to update a classic SWC model with graphics by local designers. The original watch was once worn by such icons as Mao Zedong, Deng Xiao Ping, Zhou Enlai and others. There was a time the mere fact you owned a SWC watch meant you were part of the Communist Party Elite

I’d love to buy one but they don’t seem to be selling online and the only physical
locations to purchase are in Shanghai, Paris or NYC. A friend in New York has promised to take a peek and see if 1)they are still available (Kidrobot don’t list the watches as part of their store catalogue) and 2) how many shekels I’ll have to fork out to get one for myself.

If I get some answers I’ll be sure to post here.
