“ Brand: Swatch / Watch for: Unisex „
I have a number of Swatch watches, some of which I have previously reviewed, I have owned the Swatch 'Portly' for some time now, it was designed in 2005 and came available in the 2006 Spring/Summer collection. The Portly is a unisex watch with an analogue display and a 30metres water resistance. The case material is plastic and the whole body of the watch is in a rich, deep blue. The hands are a glow in the dark white with a day and date function at the 6 O'Clock position. The face of the watch has white numbers and the background is the same deep blue as the body of the watch, though it isn't plain because it has a textured finish to it.
Swatch is renowned for such well designed and high quality watches at reasonable prices and the Portly is no different. I love the simplicity of the design, but also there are touches you would be hard pushed to find on similarly priced timepieces of this quality. The face of the watch also states the words 'Swatch' and 'Swiss', two things that speak volumes for the quality in watchmaking circles. Overall this is a quality timepiece and at around £35 is reasonably priced.
