A Package

How many of you owned a Swatch?  Did you wear multiple ones?  They ARE the 80's....

I owned 5, it's what started my watch collecting....I moved on to Fossils in the 90's, but I still own my Swatches..
I couldn't find my white one...I also had Swatch guards....I wore the white one and the green one on the right the most...Look at the 80's colors on the two middle ones!

So when I saw this....
I knew I had to get one.....and it came today...in a HUGE box....I had no idea what it was, as I was not expecting such a big box....and the watch was on backorder....


Inside was the watch and a hot water bottle....never owned a hot water bottle....but I love the watch!

Full disclosure, I did find a Swatch store at the airport in Florida about 10 years ago and bought this one (I thought I had two newer ones, but can't find the other one)


Swatch...what memories.....

OMG! That brings back memories. I always wanted one but my mother never let me get one. I did have a Mickey Mouse watch that played the MM Song. I have a collection of those classic Mickey watches.

Love your newest watch.

Okay, you're not going to believe this but my apartment is a block away from a Swatch store and just last night I was thinking about how I should pop in there and get myself one of those fabulous "knitted" swatch watches!! Love how yours came with a hot water bottle ~ awesome. Hmmm, maybe should I get one and we can be twins. ; )

I never owned a swatch - maybe I'm too young!? But I like it!

I don't need another watch, but that one is so cute! Tempting.

I've only got two Swatches but they're both special to me. One has the Eiffel Tower on it and I bought it in Paris. The other I got when I worked at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. Only about a dozen people have this version.
