On 23-SEP-2002, the Jaguar's Tribute to Style event took place in Los Angeles on Rodeo Drive.  Swatch was a co-sponsor of the event.  For this occasion, Swatch released a special packaging Tribute To Style as an entrance pass:

Before the event, an autograph session with Vern Troyer aka Mini Me (Austin Powers) took place at the Hollywood Swatch Store:
