Swatch Refresh....

Post by silverguy » 01 Jun 2012 20:49

Hi Guys

Just dug out my old swatches from 1998-2000 , it was my first gift from my cousin when I started to join the work force. Back to those days, no money even to buy watches, watch collection has not even come to my my mind. Does anyone here started to collect swatch since then??

1) Restless ( dont know still can find strap replacement?? any advice )

2) ???

3) General shots

Straps for Swatch watches quite standard sizes, so not be an issue.

can buy at any Swatch outlet. just choose from their binders of straps & bracelets. but may not be complete depending on outlet. some bracelets can place order if not available in store.

there is a Swatch outlet at Junction 8. :mrgreen:

indeed, these few will be my version of Patek's tagline

'I'm merely looking after it for my next generation' :lol:

if the watches are still working, it will be passed down to my daughter as her 1st watch :mrgreen:

no need, just use normal Paros leather lor but u have to notch out 3 holes in order to fit into the Swatch lugs.

but take note, if your watch is damn old, like mine

the lug will break.

why i know?

cos mine just broke :lol:


the plastic is very weak liao

i tink u better buy back stock Swatch straps ba

Nice Bro. I just send one of mine to MBS outlet to change strap and they offered free polishing of plexi. Thumbs up. So now I know Swatch does free service for swatch watches...:)
