Advantages: funky alien artwork
Disadvantages: rather bright
One of the fabbest and funkiest watches this side of the galaxy. Swatch can be relied on for taking watch imagery to a new level of excitement. It was my cousins who got me into them when we were kids. They were real girly girls and used to love collecting loads of Swatches. I think on the whole Swatch watches tend to appeal to girls more than guys, but the fact that the watches are unisex means both sexes can be kept happy!
This Risk watch is anything but risky in terms of design work. The colour scheme is superb and the graphics are now and happening! The interface boasts some bright and sassy graphics with some kind of creature face on it. As a big fan of all things monsterlike and sci-fi, this one was right up my street. The eyes and mouth are evil looking yet also have a cuteness about them. Large easy to read digits and bright blue hands allow you to keep track of the time with relative ease and the graphics do not obstruct the view of the time.
The watch has a strap covered with more alien creatures which further appeals to my alien side and you can even take this one in the bath with you. It is water resistant for up to thirty metres. I am never brave enough to slide under the bath for long enough to test this though! It comes with a case and is easy to start up, thanks to a little button on the side of the watch, no clumsy features to contend with here.
If I could alter anything at all, I would have had the whole strap made from black rubber rather than the white look, as this would made it more compatible with night-time attire. That said, this looks fun when you wear it out round the shops and will turn heads if you flash it enough. A fun and seriously funky watch. It costs between thirty and forty pounds, but check online auctions to get the better deals.
