Swatch enjoys a reputation for reliability, style, cost effectiveness and flair. Since debuting its first line back in 1983, Swatch has unveiled hundreds of different permutations of watches - much to the delight of the world. Although the most popular time for Swatch occurred during the 1980's, when it seemed like everyone had a Swatch watch
on their wrist, the company now enters the new millennium with a bang, creating exciting and innovative watches and manages to stay fresh and relevant year after year.
A New Concept for Watches
When Swatch - which means "Swiss-made watch" - was first launched during the early 1980s, the watchmaker had a definite idea about what it wanted to create: Fun, casual accessories that were affordable for just about everyone. Their idea took off immediately; the resulting watches were colourful, peppy and stylish. In no time flat, Swatch watches became must-have accessories, adorning the wrists of people around the world. Today, Swatch's innovation and overriding principles persist with gusto.
Swatch watches have always been synonymous with innovation and fashion. In fact, they have prompted several trends through the years; most memorably, it was once quite popular to wear two or more Swatches on one wrist. Celebrities and other luminaries regularly sport the trendy timepieces, even to this day. Anyone who's looking for a fun watch that won't break the bank would do well to consider a Swatch.
Many truly fashionable watches come with one unpleasant characteristic: a high price tag. Happily, Swatch watches have always been competitively priced so that people with all sorts of budgets can slip them on with ease - and without breaking the bank. Considering their flair and their appeal, these watches are amazingly affordable.
A Bounty of Styles to Choose From
Few watchmakers offer the vast array of different styles that Swatch does. Its Scuba line, which boasts top-notch diving watches
, is perfect for outdoors enthusiasts; its Skin line, with its flat, thin designs, appeals to minimalists and to those who just prefer lightweight accessories.
Glitter and Shine with Swatch Watches
As further evidence that Swatch is the watchmaker for everybody, they produce the glamorous Swatch Bijou line for those who really want to make an impression. Swatch Bijou is a line of bona fide jewellery watches that boast elegant Swarovski crystals and other fine features. As is par for the course with Swatch products, the Bijou line is very affordable.
