Swatch Risk a Dare GJ127
Advantages: Bright colours, durable!
Disadvantages: Plastic strap can make wrists sweat
I love swatch watches, their simple structure with wild printed and bold designs makes them one of my top 5 watch designers - I ask for them for Christmas, as well as giving them as presents to others! This particular watch was bought for me as a Christmas present (through the watch hut I believe) and is one of my all time favourite swatches
This is the risk a dare swatch watch - It has a very attractive wild face design, with lots of bright neon colours around the face and on the strap. Even with this bold design it is still easy to read the hands to tell the tine. The design, being so bold and eye catching doesn't appeal to all audiences, however I think that is the point. Although Swatch is a huge company, selling watches all over the world, you can't help but feel you are wearing a very individual piece. I would say the design would appeal more to a female audience, however it is a unisex watch, and many of my male friends have commented on it.
The watch has the distinctive round face, with a plastic strap. The strap is of a good length, with a range of holes for the slimmer and wider wrist. The only slight drawback is that the strap, being a plastic, can make your wrist slightly sweaty, however for such a funky watch I am willing to make the sacrifice. The design is bright and funky, and has lasted really well (hasn't faded at all / scuffed at all) which I am very pleased about. I go through phases of wearing certain watches, but there has been periods where I have worn this daily so it is suitable and comfortable enough for daily wear.
There is also a small turn dial on the side, which pulls out easily to change the time as necessary. Throughout the time I have had it, it has not lost any time (slowed down etc) as far as I can tell, and more impressively, I have not needed to change the battery as of yet!
As with all swatch watches, this came in a long clear plastic case with the swatch logo, which looks very smart indeed! Looks great when unwrapped as a gift! Highly recommended!!!
Summary: Bright bold and well made from one of my favourite watch designers
