Got one irony for the wifey (plain dial, no markers, no indices) and she kept telling me the wrong time!

Zoom in can see the year of the release, subdial doesn't look lack of details! Unfortunately due to the slightly darker tone, the subdial's lines gets easily ignored...
Image

Polished, and chromy surface of bracelet and case... a headache, a finger magnet...

Image

Odd cyclops, odd position... always thought that a droplet of water not removed... duh...
Image

Surprisingly... there're lume applied on the well layout dial! But not so strong after more than 10yrs...

That's the uniqueness and fun of SWATCH! Most of the designs we cannot understand yet it seems a little logical... :lol:
I think SWATCH SG should rename this model you bought to resonate with local context... "ANY HOW HUMTUM" what do you think? :mrgreen:

Older IRONY have lots of bluish dials, be it light or darker in tone... but this one caught my eyes, not because of the light metallic blue wish often is seen on female makes of other brands, but the size as well as the layout of the dial, with addition of the cyclops that makes it more manly... Unfortunately 10+ years later, the 1/10 subdial got stuck, because of long term non usage...

Oh dear, that's unfortunate. Do you intend to get it fixed? Really love this shade of blue for dial. Can't find any in recent years.

I replaced battery for my wife's Swatch at Takashimaya last month and learned that from March this year (2016) onwards...battery replacement is FOC!
