Swatch unleashes fleet of Fiats to sell MoonSwatches across the US

The Omega Speedmaster is one of the most sought-after and iconic watches ever made, so it was no surprise when the parent company Swatch got in on the action with a series of unique, entry-level quartz “MoonSwatch” collaboration watches. Buying the hot-selling bio-ceramic watches has been a chore, as Swatch only offers them in its limited number of stores. To help meet demand and promote the watches, the company is releasing a fleet of Fiat Cinquecentos to select locations where they’ll sell the timepieces on the streets.

Swatch’s “Mission to Mars” car will start its journey in Miami and hit other cities around Florida, while the “Mission to the Sun” Fiat will tour major metro areas in California.

In all, eleven vehicles will travel the globe selling
