“ Brand: Swatch „
A white plastic Swatch watch with detachable wings that fit around the face of the watch. There are no numbers on the watch so it's hard to tell the exact time but after I'd worn it a few times I got to know where the hands were pointing to get an accurate time.
This watch isn't comfortable at all when the wings are attached because they are very rigid and don't feel good on my wrist. When I take the wings off the watch is much more comfortable but then it is very plain so if you are looking to buy this Swatch watch for the wings then you should think about whether you are going to like the feel of them and buy another one with a brighter colour. The strap is plastic so the watch is very light to wear, there are nine holes already punched in the strap and room to add more if you need to.
HOW DOES IT PERFORM?
This watch keeps the time perfectly and never loses minutes. The hands move smoothly around the watch face and are not jerky at all.
WHAT I THINK
I think this is a pretty watch but it's too uncomfortable when the wings are attached to it for me to wear it very often, I dislike the plain appearance of it when the wings are not attached. Like any watch without numbers I cannot use this one for when I am working because I have to time facial and hair treatments too exactly.
The plastic strap makes my wrist itchy and sweaty but a lot of Swatch watches are the same, I like a leather or metal strap better. The wings are easy to attach and remove but you can easily lose them if you don't put it away safely. I keep mine in a trinket box to make sure they don't get lost.
The £40 my husband paid for this watch is very expensive for a plastic watch and you're just paying for the wings, he's disappointed that I don't wear it very often but understands about the wings being uncomfortable. He said he wished he had bought me another design because this one is a but wasted but I can understand why he picked this one because it looks so attractive and was displayed well in the store.

American Fashion designer Jeremy Scott has been famously known to create outrageous designs, recent examples include a bacon print dress for Hayley Williams but has created clothing for Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and many more.
However, his latest collection of watches aren't just for the celebrity status and is available to everyone at a reasonable price of £42.00 (may be expensive for some?), including free delivery from the Swatch online store. There are three designs in this collection- I chose the winged one as it is a style I have liked in his clothing and shoes (which also have the wings). Purchasing from the sight was extremely easy and the free delivery service was spectacular given it was by courier.
The watch was well packaged (in a box that was a bit too big) and in kept in a transparent plastic case, with instructions. The actual watch itself is beautiful, made of white plastic and has a thin white strap. It is also water resistant. The durability of the plastic wings is questionable, as due to excessive movement/wear, it may break off? But it seems pretty strong and doesn't seem like it will do so unless you cut it with scissors or deliberately damage it.
The watch can be worn on any casual occasion but also formal/smart casual as the watch has that fashionable edge which would reflect a playful side of you. The simplicity of the watch face draws attention to the wings which is nice. All my friends have commented on it as it is a unique design and I think that clothing is a great way to express yourself.
Want a unique watch? Grab this one or any other from this series- the thunderbolt one is also pretty cool! This is a fantastic watch in terms of design and is reliable. I wonder if there will another watch that will attract me as much as this one!
