“ Brand: Swatch / Watch for: Unisex „
Sometimes it is the most simple of designs that works the best and while this is not the flashiest of designs from Swatch it is a great, versatile fashion watch that is perfect for everyday use. I have owned it for just coming up to 2 years now and it is still going strong on the first battery, I paid the bargain price of £24.99 for it in a sale.
You can probably tell from the picture that this watch is a dark blue in colour however the really neat design feature is the demin fabric strap which is basically denim material stuck over a basic leather strap, it gives the watch a unique and stylish touch to it and is something people have often commented on when they have noticed it. The watch is not too big so it is unisex and looks good on either a female of mail wrist as my other half has worn this on occasions as well. The only downside really is that after a fair bit of wear the whole that I use on the strap has started to stretch out a bit from all of the use.
The watch second hand provides a splash of colour alongside the odd numbers on the dial which are all red, the numbers are red dashes with the even numbers displayed in a large numerical font in a cream colour, the watch face itself is silver with cream coloured minute and hour hands. There is also a red date display.
Like all Swatch watches it is an accurate time piece and very reliable. It is also incredibly comfortable to wear as well and while it is probably quite hard to find in the shops these days it is well worth keeping an eye out for if you want something simple but a little quirky.
I have fast turned into a big Swatch fan, and the 'My Jeans' watch is the latest model I have acquired. Designed in 2007 you can see that this watch was inspired by a pair of jeans and the dark denim finish is something quite special in my opinion. The casing is made from blue plastic which matches the strap and contains a Swiss Quartz movement. The strap is made from leather but is covered in denim material for anm authentic finish. The watch also has a plastic buckle and this is very sturdy as with all Swatch timepieces I have come across. The watch is water resistant to 30metres and with a silver dial face and red glowing handles this is one watch that will stand out from the crowd.
The watch is a good looking timepiece in its own right, but goes particularly well when accompanied by a pair of denim jeans or denim jacket. The 'My Jeans' model is aimed at both sexes, and I would agree that it is suitable for everyone.
I particularly like the detailing with the leather. The stitching on the strap is delicate and finishes the design off very well indeed. The buckle is accompanied by a sweet denim finished strap loop. With a date function on the face of the watch, and a very odd finish on the background this is one unique and swish watch. If you are looking for a fun and quirky watch with some nice details then this is one to look out for.
