6) Swatch Watches, $35
Swatch was established in 1983 following the merger of two Swiss watchmaking companies, ASUAG and SSIH. The Brand formed its identity through affordable Swiss-made plastic watches of unconventional designs.
The contemporary Swatch catalogue retains the quirkiness along with some classic models. Swatch SISTEM51 was released in 2013; models feature a mechanical automatic self-winding movement, which translates into a non-battery watch that derives its energy to operate from the wearer’s wrist and hand movements.
Variations in Swatch SISTEM51 watches come in novel color combinations and designs; the SISTEM BLUE for example, sports a midnight black and blue color with a dot-and-map design accentuated by little red spots on a clean black dial.
The SISTEM GREEN is an aqua-green watch with orange dial markers and a silicone strap; the case back is see-through, revealing the watch movements inside.
The Swatch watch O-TINI might interest you if you prefer transparent models. An aqua-blue dial sports a white index design with a transparent bezel bearing blue markers, around it.
The dial is see-through, giving a view of the watch movements within. The dial pointers use Super-LumiNova technology, which make them clear at night. A blue plastic strap with a buckle clasp completes the watch design.
The Swatch AMORGOS watch is a different white-wading-through-yellow pattern. AMORGOS features a yellow dial and strap; a stretch of striking white runs from one end of the strap to the other touching the center of the dial on the way. Grey numerals and accents cover the dial.
