Presented at Baselworld 2017, the BOMBERG BOLT-68 Automatic TARTAN is a daring and unconventional watch collection that celebrates the punk culture.

The story of the tartan pattern goes way back to 18th century and originally gets associated with the Scottish and Gaelic Culture. The Celtic knot art became a vital inspiration for this new collection as well as the punk culture.


Initiated as a rebellion against society, a protest against the fashion industry, it later became a fashion trend itself. The punk trend was an early manifestation of deconstructionist fashion which emerged in UK in the early 70’s.

The new BOMBERG BOLT-68 Automatic TARTAN collection is available in 3 limited editions:-

  • BOLT-68 Tartan “McQueen”: The upper plate of the dial is made of a red colour, which matches exactly the one found on the “McQueen pattern”. Moreover, all three dials show engraved, traditional Celtic motives, which are superposed and hand polished.
  • BOLT-68 Tartan “Hood”: The blue upper plate contrasts certainly with the “Hood” tartan pattern and highlights the dark colours of the rest of this time-piece.
  • BOLT-68 Tartan “McDonald”:  In Celtic green. This colour specifically has been a very traditional one in Celtic culture and stands for pride, strength and family. Values those are also dear to BOMBERG’s culture.

The brand’s exclusive pattern of the strap, the dial and the watch bezel have made each watch a truly avant-garde piece of work and history.

Inspired by those two traditional yet unconventional trends, the three references of the new BOLT-68 automatic 3-Hands Tartan collection combine the functional aspect of always being on time while not forgetting the long lasting tradition of the past.
