I got my first Swatch at Macy's in either 1983 or 1984. It's the one on the right. This isn't the original band - that was yellow, blue and red. I liked the Egyptian pattern on the center one that I got about a year later. The battery cover broke on that after 5 years. The one on the left is from my class trip to Switzerland in 1987. They are cheaper over there although I'm sure by the time my mom paid interest on credit card bills it worked out to be the same or more! I have others too from the mid - late 90s. I even got my mom liking them. We need to get new batteries for our Swatches. I finally went to the Swatch store in NYC last year. Such nice stuff there - not in the budget though.
