This Swatch Men's Watch is a simple wrist watch which my husband and I bought a couple of weeks ago. My husband never worn a wrist watch in his entire life until he realized a couple of weeks ago that he needs one at work. He used to have 2 or 3 wrist watches which are expensive and given to him as presents in special occassions. But all those watches he did not use and just gave them away to his nephews. This time he realized he wanted a watch that is casual and not expensive. So we went to the shopping center and found this simple Swatch wrist watch.
Swatch Men's Watch have a wide range of designs and styles. But since my husband was merely looking for a simple one, we purchased this plain round black Swatch for the price of $95.00Ausd. He is happy with it as it is just what he needs. No special features but simple watch with simple design. It is water resistant and has a dater. It has a good quality leather strap. It also comes with two-year warranty which is good. According to the seller, the battery usually lasts for more than a year.
Swatch is a good brand and it comes with watches both for men and women. They have variety of watches from cheap ones to a bit expensive ones. So far, my husband is happy with what he's got. And knowing Swatch since I was a young kid, I am sure this one will last for years.
Update On Jun 29, 2010: "I am sure this one will last for years." That was the last line of my review, and yes, I spoke too soon.
After few weeks, this Swatch starts to run slow, thus, it is like 4 hours late. The dater on the otherhand is one day ahead! I will definitely bring it back to the Time Gallery where we bought it. They need to fix it and replace the battery. Oh well, things happen. As of this update, I can't tell really if this will turn me off as far as Swatch watches quality is concerned. Or maybe this watch has been in the seller's display for a long time that batteries were nearly drained when we purchased it. I will post an update again hopefully next week.
