Diesel On Full Guard smartwatch is now available for pre-sale

Announced at Baselworld earlier this year, the first Diesel On Full Guard touchscreen smartwatch is now available for pre-sale at Macy’s department store and at diesel.com.

The full collection of watches is set to debut on September 25th. Retailing at $325, the first to go on sale is a model with a black case and a brown leather strap.

“We worked on interpreting the smartwatch world with a Diesel attitude, adding technology to the classic watch to create a new, digital accessory,” creative director of Diesel Licenses Andrea Rosso said earlier this year. 

“The idea is to have many different watches in one to match the mood of every moment of the day—always with an ironic touch.”
