Last year, Swatch and the Ateneo de Manila University collaborated to come up with the Ateneo Watch by Swatch in celebration of the university’s 150th anniversary. The proceeds were donated to the 500 at 150 Sesquicentennial Scholarship Campaign, which aimed to send 500 scholars to school at the Ateneo de Manila University. This year, more students, alumni, and supporters have been showing their school pride with more school watches created by Swatch, mostly to benefit worthy causes.
The University of the Philippines (UP) Watch by Swatch has the university seal, the Oblation, and the letters "UP" printed on its black silicone watch strap.
The De La Salle University (DLSU) Centennial Swatch Collection comes in four designs-the St. La Salle watch with the founder’s signature on the green silicone strap, the 2401 watch with the DLSU façade printed on the white folio plastic strap, the Animo! watch with green stripes on the black silicone strap (also comes with a DLSU laptop bag) and the De La Salle Centennial Chrono with a black leather strap. Proceeds from the sales will go to the One La Salle Scholarship Fund.
The University of Sto. Tomas (UST) Quadricentennal Watches by Swatch also has four designs in black and gold, black leather, white leather, and black. The collection marks the university’s Quadricentennial Celebration in 2011.
