Swatch Watch

Ah, sometimes I miss the 80’s. Bold colors. Graphic prints. Big hair. Terrible fashion choices. Whimsy.

Mostly I miss Swatches.

I loved Swatches- the “disposable” Swiss watch. Fun designs. Cool colors. Water resistant. Replaceable/interchangeable bands. And a very loud “tick” which would seem to echo in my bedroom at night.

And they were only like 30 bucks!

My first Swatch was one I bought IN SWITZERLAND when I was in high school. I still have it to this day.

I probably had 5 or 6 Swatches total– you know, to match my different, funky, Chess King wardrobe. Sometimes I even strapped three Swatches together and coiled them around one wrist.

I. Was. So. Bloody. Hip!

Anyway, during this time, there was always one thing I wanted– a Swatch wall clock. Remember them?They had them in the Swatch stores and they were giant, wall sized versions of the watches– band and all. Man I wanted one!

Like this:

So, imagine the squeal I emitted when I found this on eBay. It’s even the version of my favorite Swatch that I ever owned– the Nautilus. I think my mom bought this one for me for Valentine’s Day. I so loved the colors and the ocean vibe and the beach vacation feel.

It was my most prized possession. I wore it until the case cracked and broke where the bands attach.

And now I own the wall version of it. My own little slice of 1987 pop art heaven.

I can’t wait until it arrives and I hang it.

    I owned a nautilus swatch as a teen and mine broke at the clasp too. I was devastated. But a wall version sound cool. Lucky guy!

    Oh yes, the Swatch watch craze, which if memory serves me, was shortly after the Fossil watch craze.
