Swatch was the brand of watches that revolutionised the Swiss Watch making industry and led it out of the so-called Quartz Crisis in the early 1980's. The name Swatch is an acronym for Second Watch and the watches were plastic, with a low-cost quartz movement, and came in an endless variation of colour combinations - for the first time consumers should consider owning not just one, but also a second watch. Thanks to Swatch, Switzerland regained its position as the leading watchmaking nation.
This is a Swatch Irony Chronograph clearly inspired by motor sport. It has a very agreeable colour combination of black, steel, ivory, red and white. The case is made out of stainless steel.
This watch comes fitted with a new battery. It comes in a generic black presentation box with a certificate of authenticity and one year warranty from Arlington watches.
