Bought for farther in law as his original swatch had given up the ghost after 20yrs. It took a bashing being tractor mechanic. He wanted next to the same watch from 20yrs ago. Fits like a glove because of the semi ridged moulding strap . Good colour. Easy to read because of his age and eye sight and illuminated hands. Overall a good replacement for the last one.

Having purchased two of these watches for myself and eldest child they are a good choice with clear dials. Only thing is the mechanism is very noisy. I have had them in the past and they last a long while, but straps can wear fast. I must be happy to have re-purchased.

Been wearing these watches as my everyday watch for over 30 years. Clear dial is easy to read. Watch is lightweight very comfortable to wear. Simple black case is stylish and you can wear it with anything. Great to wear on holiday as I have always found them waterproof and they dont attract attention from any undesirable elements.

I bought this as a replacement swatch for my husband, a farmer. This Swatch is about the only watch he can manage not to destroy in minutes on the farm. It is slim, so doesnt catch easily, the strap has enough flexibility not to snap when his muscles expand and the face is clear and easy to read, especially in low light. Hoping this will do several years hard wearing before the next replacement is needed.

I wanted a watch that was slightly bigger than the usual ladies size but not as big as a mans - this is just right.
It has a white face with black figures and they stand out really well. Complimented by a black strap that isnt the usual hard plastic. It is nice and soft and has plenty of holes in the strap to adjust how tight I want it. The main feature for me is the day/date display. That is really why I chose this watch. Other watches have had this feature but the display has been so small that I have needed a magnifying glass to read it. This display is covered by its own magnification and is brilliant. A small hiccup when it arrived - the day/date was not showing the correct day or date and I couldnt seem to change it although I followed the instructions to the letter. However I do have severe arthritis in my hands so my partner tried and eventually he did change it. He says it is just getting the knack of doing it but I will leave it to him to change if needed. i.e. at the end of a 30 day month. Altogether I am delighted with this watch and the price is very reasonable. It would be nice if other colours were available - I would buy them.

This is my favourite watch, and Im so glad it is still available. It is clear, practical, and lasts well. When the battery runs out, it is easy to change. The only drawback is that the plastic strap breaks after about 3 or 4 years of use. But I reckon thats fair enough, and am happy to pay another £30 to buy a new one. And until the new one arrives, I have a pocket watch instead of one on my wrist.

Dear Sirs

I received my new Swatch today which replaced my original one which I purchased over twenty years ago. It finally stopped a month ago as a result of damp and wet conditions, usually when strapped to the handlebars of my mountain bike. The only money I spent on it was to replace the strap twice and batteries.

Comparing the new model with the old, I much prefer the font used on the new model, especially now that they are vertical. I always found the figures pointing inwards a bit odd i.e. digits 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 being upside down. The day/date magnification works well so does the white figures on a black background. Finally the matt black case matches the strap much better.

Regards Patrick Penrose

Specifically wanted a watch which has a day and date facility and second hand. I wear varifocal glasses and clarity is paramount. My wife, daughter and daughter-in-law all have Swatch watches. This watch meets all those requirements. Particularly like the large numbers on the clock face and the magnifying facility on the day/date part of the watch. Watch is lovely and clear.

The watch is for my son who has a reaction on his skin if he wears a metal backed watch so this swatch being plastic backed- apart from the battery cover- will hopefully prevent that re occurring. Its a very simple and no fuss display which is what we wanted. Tells analogue time day and date and nothing else.

I have had Swatch Watches beforehand they are great timekeepers - their straps have been thei vulnerability to me - they eventually fall to pieces. This watch is similar in that respect but hopefully the strap will outlast the others. This watch has a big bump of plastic on the face to magnify the day date and whilst it does what it says it is a bit inelegant as it looks like half a cylinder glued to the face. If they had rounded off the ends it would have been beter

The watch is great and this is the 4th replacement I have had for this particular watch. However, the watch strap buckle is now dreadful and I have broken 3 in the 8 months. If Swatch would go back to using the old buckle I would go back to giving the watch and excellent rating.

I like this watch, a lot. Simple but effective.

And so I buy one each year. Not because I like having lots of watches, but because the strap usually fails after about that time.

Alas.

Thought I had already written a review, but if not, please note I am delighted with the Swatch watch, even though it is the basic model, fits the wrist nicely without a feel of having a sweaty wrist. I am chuffed with the watch, which is in a fairly long line of Swatch watches over many years.

I chose this watch in particular because I liked the design which suited my life style. Uncomplicated and functional. Easy to read face with luminous figures and hands. Also gives the date and day. Slightly concerned that the plastic strap will sweat in summer heat.
The instruction leaflet is complicated and misleading. I assume a cover on all models of Swatch.I needed a magnifying glass to read the print.

Its a really nice classic watch, really clear with the date and great that it has the day on it too also the hands and dots for each hour glow in the dark which is a useful bonus

only slight complaint would be that the ticking of the seconds it quite loud and more noticeable than other watches, but not too much of a problem

Really nice simply and compact watch. The watch was a gift and was very well received. It was for casual use during the day and suits this very well. A nice touch is the date and day on the watch face. The brand has a good name and I would recommend the watch if someone wants a simply and casual timepiece for everyday use.

Watch seems fine - had several of these over the years - but the buckle has broken within the first week. Particularly annoying as I am now on holiday with no chance of a replacement until I return. Makes me question my allegiance to Swatch.

I had this watch over twenty five years ago, great to see it reissued. I love it, ticks all my boxes. It is very, very light, easy to read the day date, did I say I love? I have several other watches but wear this most of he time.
Non positives, setting is a little fiddely, it is quite loud and the buckle is a tadd flimsy all in all a great casual watch, would definatley recommend.

I wanted an everyday work/casual, no nonsense watch on which the dial was plain and clear to see at a glance. This watch offers me that, and in addition it has a magnified day and date inset on the face, which in turn is clear and easy to see with a cursory glance. When the watch arrived I was pleased that the features were exactly as the image portrayed in the on line catalogue. I am not too sure at the moment whether the strap will be robust enough but that remains to be seen However, that is the only concern. Everything else is spot on.

However - one more time - excellent service and prompt response etc.

The swatch once again watch is a classic modern design - this is the third one Ive owned in twenty odd years! If only it was as long lasting as its design - but - HEY - at £30 Im not complaining and its not worth a buying a replacement strap!

Very pleased with this watch which was bought as an 18th birthday present for my son. Slim stylish watch, very clear face, comfortable strap. Ideal for my son who has a slim wrist and hates heavy, chunky watches. Useful to have date on the watch as well. Only slight criticism would be the raised bubble over the date. Would definitely recommend as stylish and excellent value.

I bought this watch for my husbands birthday and he absolutely loves it! He had the same one bought for a birthday a few years ago and was gutted when he lost it during a recent visit to the gym. He said it was the best watch he had ever had and would buy the same one again. He didnt have to as I got it for him! He likes the simplicity of the plain white face and easy to read numbers. And as hes allergic to metal straps this non metallic one is just perfect. I liked the fact that it didnt cost a fortune to replace. Thanks Swatch!

Excellent, stylish black strapped watch with simple to read white dial and magnified date window. Having had Swatch watches before I was confident this watch would suit my requirements and I was not dissapointed. Although the plastic strap can wear more quickly than a leather one, as the watch is totally waterproof there is no need to keep taking it on and off, which is what wears out the strap. Being plastic, it means my allergy to most metals is no longer a problem. More than happy to recommend to anyone.

I had a swatch watch very similar 25years ago. Like most things in life you trust what you know and was not disappointed with the product. I do wish the watch came in more colours as i choose black but would prefer red. The annoying loud ticking hasnt changed and brings back fond childhood memories. Buying the product was so easy and receiving it the following day wad very impressive

The watch is a simple classic - works great and looks good.

I bought it for my father as some watch faces are either far too small or look as though youve stolen Flava Flavs famous timepiece. However Swatch have found a good size I also have a Swatch Irony.

Easy to adjust the time, date both date and day and has a quiet tick.

This is the first watch Ive worn in about ten years, ever since my mobile phone took care of timekeeping. Its taken a bit of time to get used to the ticking, which seems surprisingly loud to ears that arent sensitized to the sound, but otherwise Im very pleased with the design and quality of the watch. The design is attractive, understated and neutral despite being very light, the materials feel like theyre of a high quality.

I bought this as a cheapish watch with day+date display and unfussy face. It works of course, as all watches do. Not quite as elegant a design as expected, and the raised magnifying part of the plastic glass seems unnecessary.

The watch is very comfortable and easy to read, but the only problem might be the length of the strap for some people. It is fine for me but it is on the last hole so it would not fit men with extra large wrists.

The watch is very good and I havent found any faults with the watch so far. The fact it is water resistant means I dont have to worry about a little amount of water getting splashed onto the watch. I like the design and it has been made from a well known watch brand swatch.

Haven't bought a Swatch for years, till this purchase! Very pleased with it. I wanted a simple, classic watch which was light in weight, easy to read, larger than a ladies watch, but not too big - for everyday - at a reasonable price. For me, this satisfies all those things. Really good service too.

I cannot live without this watch!! Since retiring 8 years ago I NEED to know the DAY and DATE! This is the 6th Swatch watch I've had over the years and always have the same one. If there's one thing I don't like about it is the last 2 I've had have raised glass over the date and day, whereas my previous ones were sompletely smooth. At only £25 ish it gives me a good clear to see watch, with the day and date, what more can I ask!

The Swatch is exactly as expected in terms of appearance. The one slightly surprising feature is the strap, which has fittings which do not allow the watch to "lie flat" on a surface when removed which gives me the feeling that it was not designed quite correctly. As an engineer, it grates.

Clear, easy to read watch. There's a little lens built into the "glass" that makes the day & date larger so very readable. Clever design has separate access to change the battery so that's easy & doesn't compromise the water-proofing.
It does just what I wanted at a good price.

The standard basic robust swatch, but they have added a funny magnifying glass thing over the date, which is irritating. It remains robust, which is why one buys something like this

This watch is very smart, with an appealing black and white design. If I was to be critical, I don't think the "magnifying glass" over the day/date feature is really necessary and, for me, it detracts from the overall appearance.

I bought my last Swatch in 1989, it had been my constant WORKING companion until I lost it recently, I'm not sure how many new straps I have had but if only I had d a worn one recently it would still be on my wrist. I miss it, however the ment more than makes up for the loss, it felt right from day one, (I'm subconsciously looking for the old one)!
By the way a very slick site and great service.

Beautifully simple, with a well designed face and useful day and date feature this is a great watch, just as expected. The watch feels to be of very good quality including the strap, which is made of a stiffer plastic than I expected including has an interesting hinge design, fitting comfortably around the wrist nonetheless. Overall, very impressed so far, everything one could want from a simple watch at a great price!

My girlfriend (now my wife) brought me a swatch watch almost identical to this over 25 years ago, I have worn this since and needed to replace it as the plastic around the battery had become brittle, I searched the internet for a replacement and found this which is almost identical and am very pleased with my purchase and look forward to another 25 years of use.

With a white face, black numerals and minute marks it is very easy to read, keeps accurate time and, crucially for me, tells me both the day and the time. The sweep second hand is not important to me but may be to others.

I have a number of 'quality' watches, mainly Omega but for every day use I use a Mens Swatch 'Once Again Watch GB743'. I'm now on my second one. The first one which has been subjected to much physical abuse (bricks, mortar etc) is presently have a refurb and will be back in action shortly! The timekeeping on this particular model is fantastic, the design is plain and simple with easy to read numerals. I have nothing but praise for this hard wearing good looking watch.

I bought it to replace a worn out Timex for my husband. Typically over the years he's prefered this watch with the easy to read dial and date, cheap enough to not worry about yet robust enough for work!

Simple, easy to read, and if you forget to take it off when you go for a swim or a shower it doesn't matter, because it's waterproof. Not a flashy watch or a fashion accessory, just a timepiece that works.

Only criticism: the plastic wrist strap is stiff and uncomfortable at first.

This is the 3rd or 4th I've owned.

The first swatch watch, (GB743 classic all plastic with magnified date and time with I think, a black face) I bought 14 years ago for my son’s school trip to India. He immediately cut off the straps and carried it in his pocket. The consequence was that it was always going through the washing machine when he got back. He likes the watch because :

1) It is plastic, works all over India in the heat and the cold Himalayas.

2) He climbed all over, South Africa, France, Turkey, India, Nepal, America and felt safe wearing or carrying it.

3) He has managed to arrive on time and on the correct day for his many flights and boats.

4) However, the face screen does scratch on rock faces and yacht winches but is unaffected by Bentley dealers in Berkeley square, Sotheby’s greeters, and afternoon teas in Mayfair.

I have bought 4 so far. Michael

The watch works fine, but the strap is useless as it broke after 1 months use. Guess what? the strap is not covered by the guarantee, so I have had to buy a new strap. Appalling that the strap, which is made by SWATCH, is not covered by guarantee when it obviously has such a design flaw.

It takes a while for the date to change after midnight. A bit small and might resemble a watch for children. Looks a bit cheap. The date is set by pulling the crown halfway out and twisting it up or downwards. The time is set by pulling it all way out and twisting upwards. A good buy considering the low price. Might be useful to have as a second watch you don't need to be afraid to lose.

Friend bought this watch (and paid a lot more for it!), decided to get one. Its comfortable to wear, black hands and numbers on white, simple and easy to read,looks good and a magnifier over the date - fantastic idea.Only bad point - straps a bit short if you've got chunky wrists.Never imagined I'd ever wear a Swatch, but i've eaten my words.

I work in a microbiology lab and have to wash my hands about 20 times a day. I have some very expensive watches that really don't suit getting wet as they irritate the skin. This watch is ideal for me. It has a plain white face with black hindu-arabic numerals. It is ideal for dyslexics like me. It doesn't say that I'm a wannabee action man who could kill you with the touch of a little finger. It is a cool watch. So cool that my twenty year old niece, who is a student, asked if she could have my ten year old black swatch. I only bought a new one because the strap retainer had perished after ten years of getting wet twenty times a day. This watch is great design, and I will buy an identical one in ten years time.

Superb watch, clear easy to read & I love the magnification over the day/date feature. Our watches have to be tough to survive in the Agricultural world - this fits the bill. Watch Shop services is brill too. This was an exchange item as the dial on the first watch was too small for me. The system worked perfectly & the exchanged item arrived within 5 days of the original item being returned. Great service thanks.

Back to Swatch - Once Again!!

This will be the second Once Again I have had and they are just brilliant. Stylish and tough. The last one was a fantastic travelling companion and didn't miss a beat.

Great service and the best price by far!

I needed a quick replacement for a lost watch. Watch Shop offered the best price for this simple but robust SWATCH. Clear figures just right for my ailing sight.

Ordered Sunday arrived Tuesday am. Wonderful.

So I needed a simple, reliable and inexpensive watch to wear for knocking about. This fited the bill so well - and it is sylish and iconic to boot! This watch design was ahead of its time when it was first designed and it still looks so GOOD - ideal for for the iPod generation! In fact its status has to be up there with the iPod. Just because these are inexpensive does not mean Swatches are cheap and nasty - I feel at home wearing this despite owning two Breitlings.



For me this has the original Swatch look - simple, clean, no fuss and understated. It is a bit like a VW Golf. Well made and you could be anyone from a Dustman to a Duke in owning one.



Go for it.

This is the second model GB743 Swatch watch I have bought in 6 months. The first was so practical, tough and easy to replace a battery, that I impulsively gave it to my son at Heathrow minutes before he departed for a 3 month backpacking trip around South America. Its just a cool understated timepiece to have anywhere -in the jungle or the boardroom!
