Swatch Makes a Comeback?

Swatch Fashion Watches are back! Anyone who was a teen in the late 80s probably had one or more Swatches. I've still got 2 rarer ones in the bottom of my costume jewelry case, partly for sentimental reasons, partly out of a misguided(?) feeling they might be worth something some day. The current batch of pretty Swatch watches runs $55-$100 a piece. Pretty high for a plastic watch, IMHO, but what do you think?

Oh my God -- my parents wouldn't get me a swatch for some unknown reason. I acquired a couple of brightly colored vintage watches that I wore as a substitute. But I SO wanted the original thing.

I wasn't a teenager until the 90s (hello grunge glam) but I remember that my older, cooler cousin got one of these for Christmas one year and I was all into it.

I can't wait for you to be preggo so you can do a maternity clothes/baby clothes post(s).

I wore them in the 90's (when I was a tween then a teen), so it brings back cool memories.. My taste has changed soooo much since then, so I wouldnt go for those colorful designs anymore.
