|A blast from the past|

In middle school I had bad hair, bad glasses, and a bad sense of fashion. My one saving grace (at least in my mind) was my collection of Swatch Watches. They came at time that I had outgrown my Mickey Mouse and Snoopy watches and offered something stylish and fun at the same time. Bright colors, cool designs. They were the embodiment of the 80's.
I had three Swatches back in the day. While the faces stayed the same on them, you could pretty easily swap out the bands on them. This helped in making a new fashion statement at a lower price. It seemed like back then everyone had at least one Swatch Watch. It was truly a timeless time piece.
I know Swatch is still around, but I don't know if the campy designs of the 80's are still for sale. I wish I still had my collection from my teen years, as it's always fun to look back on those relics of the past.
