Swatch and Visa have announced a partnership to enable NFC financial transactions using thethe Swatch Bellamy wristwatch. The watches, which Swatch announced in October, are arguably minimalist and are named in honor of American author Edward Bellamy who foresaw credit and debit cards in 1888.

The system is already working in Asia thanks to a partnership with China UnionPay and Bank of Communications. The Visa partnership, as announced in Reuters will bring the technology to the US, Brazil, and Switzerland.

The watches will be available in China in January and roll out to further locations next year.
