Swatch

Swatch are a very well-known watch manufacturer. The first Swatch designs were introduced way back in 1983. Their affordable price and funky designs meant they stood out from the crowd, and their popularity soon grew. Swatch are still a very unique brand, and still have success through the fact they are producing high quality Swiss timepieces at relatively affordable prices and are available in a wide range of colours and designs. Swatch have always been 'on trend' and their unique style is instantly noticeable.

Swatch watches are very popular when it comes to collecting. With such a wide range of styles and colours available you can base your collection on a whole host of things, such as colours, ranges, or just choose your favourite looking timepieces as your collection grows. Just as fashion designers bring out new 'collections' each season, Swatch display their timepieces online under collection categories. Some Swatch fanatics may collect entire collections, though I prefer to choose just my favourite designs from each collection.

The Swatch Snowcovered GK733

The Swatch 'Snowcovered' GK733 is a unisex watch that is of a pure white construction. The watch came in an official Swatch presentation box, complete with guarantee and instruction manual. As I mentioned, the watch is completely white, but by no means plain and boring!

The case is made from plastic and resin, with a white rubber strap and is water resistant. Water resistance means that it is splashproof and not 'water proof', a subtle but important difference. The strap has a buckle fastening and the Swiss Quartz movement is complimented by a day and date display.

Touch and feel



The Swatch 'Snowcovered' is up to the typical Swatch standard when it comes to feel. Timekeeping has never been an issue with any of the Swatch watches I own, though as they are Swiss I am not surprised by this. The time, day and date function are all controlled via the single button to the right side of the watch casing. This gives a very clean and subtle finish to the appearance of the watch, and also makes it easy to alter each function.

Although the watch strap and also watch casing are made from plastic, this doesn't detract from the quality feel in my opinion. If you are used to wearing metal/leather watches then you might not agree with me, though I don't find personally that this is a negative point. The fixing of the strap to the body of the timepiece is secure and of a good quality. I can't imagine this snapping off easily. Overall the appearance and feel of the timepiece leaves a positive impression, both in terms of the style and the quality construction. This is something I have grown to expect from Swatch, and the lightweight feel is another positive to come from the plastic construction.

Still impressed?

I can understand that some people will either love or hate the Swatch brand. Some may prefer the quality of other brands, and the plastic/rubber construction of most Swatch timepieces might not appeal to a lot of consumers. In defence of this, unless you have actually worn and touched a Swatch watch then it would be unfair to judge the product based on choice of materials alone.

Price and availability

Swatch watches are widely available online, and this particular design can be bought for around £30-£40 depending on where you shop. You could buy direct (www.swatch.com), though www.watchshop.com is an Official Swatch Stockist, so they can also be a good source of Swatch designs.

Final thoughts

Many of the Swatch designs are very loud and brightly coloured, this particlar watch is attractive and will suit both male and female wearers. I think if someone is looking for a gift then this would be ideal for a friend of any age. I love the feel and weight of Swatch watches and will continue to buy their various designs due to my love for their quality and not just their wild colours!
