What we’re into: Swatch Watches

So our last post on the Jelly Toy Watches with interchangable faces totally reminded me of Pop Swatches, which totally reminded me to tell everyone how cool I think Swatch Orignals from the late 80′s and early ’90′s are AND how I like to stalk vintage ones on the internet and steal them from my older sister’s stockpiles. At height of their popularity these plastic watches were affordably priced, cheeky, trendy and widely available. The Pop Swatches came a little later and were amazing because the mix and match faces could pop off and be clipped on fabric. They became a pop-culture phenom, even referenced in one of the greatest movies of all time, Heathers. These days, vintage Swatches look super fresh. After the jump are pictures of some extra special ones.

Plus… Here’s a treat from the personal collection….

    The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might repair if you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
