Did you know that Swatch Watch sold a timepiece known as, “TIME TRANNY“?

Well, neither did I!

“Time Tranny” by Swatch Watch

Swatch has this to say:

LaChapelle’s creation for Swatch features a picture of the extravagant model and transsexual icon, Amanda Lepore. Surrounded by the blue and gold nimbus of a King Tut-like headdress, her face radiates a red-lipsticked smile. The strap is printed with various collaged images—a racy red car crash, a near-nude model. With all its red-nailed, performed femininity, this watch has as much going on as a fashion socialite, from the glitzy red, blue and gold palette to Lepore’s arched, flawlessly painted eyebrows. Humorously titled Time Tranny (GZ163), this irresistible piece is the delightful and surprising work from a provocative and edgy artist.

See… it’s “humorously” titled. Also, one hand is a hotdog and the other is a bun. Isn’t that just fucking hilarious??

While you can only buy this watch through vendors and not swatch’s corporate site, I did call swatch (1-866-379-2824) to voice my opinion of their “humorously titled” timepiece.
