Swatch 1983 Collection

Swatch is looking to the past with a relaunch of their original collection from 1983. The collection isn't simply a reissue of the original styles, the company has taken it further with an overhaul of the materials with cases and straps that utilize bio-sourced plastics that are extracted from the seeds of a castor plant. The 1983 collection has all the vibrant colors you would expect and they're loaded up with quartz movements, 34mm cases, and a very accessible price point.
