Affordable Moon Watch

Post by SynMike » March 23rd 2022, 2:42pm

What do you guys think of this move by Omega and Swatch?
I think I'm in.

11 different colors. I heard $320 each (might be the Canada price or USA price).

These look cool - the price is sure right for quartz although they don't specify the movement beyond that it's 4 jewels - likely a version of the venerable G-10.

Hopefully they'll distribute them by order - not that many SWATCH stores in the states.

Edit: Plastic (Bioceramic?) case. Not so sure now.

In for sure if I could get one. Likely wait for a used one.
Probably be cheaper new.
Unfortunately, you are correct . . .

When I hit the drop down for an address, Miami and Houston don’t have one. Maybe the stores there haven’t been selected yet.

It’s going to be a schizophrenic Disney Land at these places. Worse then the lines for the new iPhone and Black Friday.

One of these is by my house. I was there two days ago with my daughter and didn’t see anything. They have huge displays for Omega, IWC, Blancpain, Breitling, etc etc.as well as a Swatch boutique. Largest mall in PA no doubt many of you have been there.
Cool, says their available on March 26, are you going to go get one?

I would have grabbed three if they were available here.

A post in one of the Facebook watch groups was a response from the Swatch group. They said the watches will be available online as well but probably after the release in stores
All right, time to dust off the old credit card.

For 260.00 I think it’s worth it. There’s a couple of them I like showed it to my son and his reaction was yeah I want one.

I want Jupiter, Saturn and I’m between on Mercury or moon.
And you know Conjurer wants a Uranus one along with the optional :mrgreen: Cabriole leg included


My youngest daughter Jackie has picked out the Mission to Uranus, Kristen has picked Mission to Mercury and my daughter in law has picked the Mission to the Moon version. I already told them that getting these was "mission impossible".

While certainly not Cabriole leg territory :mrgreen: I honestly don't have much attraction for this. Obviously, at this price point, Omega had nothing to do with the production, so I'm scratching my head over here about why they would lend their name--which is literally the only selling point. It's an inexpensive Swatch quartz chrono. In other words, booooring.
