For me, Swatch is very much of an era – the 80s. But whilst out shopping in a well-known department store earlier in the week (Selfridges if you must know), we saw the Swatch Chessboard watch, which is reminiscent of another era – the 1960s.
It’s probably the bracelet rather than the watch, a fantastic op art design in black and white stainless steel that should guarantee your wrist some serious attention. The face is plain, but in a good way, with bold grey numbers on a white background, along with a black surround. The watch is also waterproof to 30m.
And the best part of all is the price – it’s just £32.50.
