Swatch Febbre Milanese

Swatch YCS445

The city of Milan....

Febbre Milanese is literately translated as Milan Fever. When you tell me Milan, first two things that come to my mind are AC Milan, the famous football club and fashion capital of the world. 

This watch is from the 2004 Spring Summer Collection and classified under the family tree of Chrono Irony. The design of the watch may be inspired by Italian. The colour scheme used is a tribute to AC Milan which usually has the black and red jersey. 

What is most striking about this watch is the Bordeaux red and black coloured leather strap. The dial is also Bordeaux red and black. Wondering whether the leather band is made of fine Italian cowhide??? 

The leather band is with the Swatch signed stainless steel buckle.

The case is made of stainless steel and is measuring 40mm in diameter. The upper bezel has the word Swatch circularly engraved. The black dial has white minute markings and has arabic numbered minute marking at 20, 40 and 60 minute positions. This watch has a date window at 4 o'clock position and is a quartz chronograph. 

Like standard Swatch watches, it has a water resistant of 3 Bar.
