    Post Swatches

    Did everyone here have more than one Swatch? Like several going up your wrist? I LOVED Swatches!!
    I had the coolest green one, the band was green with yellowish-green spots goinng down it.. I had several, but that one was my favorite...

    Anyone know where you can get those anymore? I mean like the cool styles that we had back then...

    where I am from,Swatches were something the trendy kids wore,and we were just too cool to be trendy(We weren't smart enough to realize that what we were doing was a trend in itself)

    Here ya' go. I have a Swatch reply for you right here. I loved Swatches. Guess I was trendy too.

    Matter of fact, I am sitting here looking at mine. Yup! I still have it. Here's a description:
    Red plastic band with holes in it, black bezel with a black face (yellow and blue rings on it), a blue Swatch Guard and a yellow loop on the band for securing the extra wrist band. It was called the "Wind Unit". Love that watch...

    I want one!!!!! I still have my favorite green one.. but its been broken for years and years.. the band is broken in half and the face is scratched up.. I saved it though, as an 80s souvenier

    <FONT COLOR="Pink">I had a small pink one (with a guard) and a big blue and red one, it had vertical stripes that were blue & red, with a big red guard on it! I had them in jr. high I believe it was...I used to wear them both at once. Anybody else used to wear more than one Swatch once at once? And man, I thought I was so cool wearing at least 2 watches at once. What was I thinking??? </FONT c>

    Swatches were one thing that never caught on where I lived. Don't remember anyone I knew having them.

    I always coveted other people's Swatches. (We were too poor for stuff like that!) Nobody in my school wore more than one at a time, though... we weren't cool enough for that!

    I did have a much-loved, lavender Timex watch with a hand in place of the "5." Kind of a knockoff-Swatch.

    <FONT COLOR="Pink">I remember playing volleyball for PE in Jr. High and I swear, I must have had about five watches on! Try serving a volleyball or let alone hitting one wearing that many watches on your arm! Ouch!! I used to ask people if I could wear their watch!!</FONT c>

    Heh! My Mom & Dad thought there was something wrong with me for just about everything I did in the 80's. Could have been right, too...
